  1. Awesome selection.

    “Oddly enough, I didn’t originally know of ‘I’m Gonna Blow You a Kiss In the Wind’ as a Boyce and Hart song, having first heard it covered on the 1984 Redd Kross LP ‘Teen Babes From Monsanto’. I was actually lucky enough to see Redd Kross perform the song…”

    That is the exact same for me. In fact, I listened to the rather bitchin’ Red Kross version just a few months ago.

  2. It’s worth noting that “Smilin'” was re-worked for use in a Coca-Cola commercial for the “things go better with Coke” series of ads which featured dozens of big name artists from the 60’s. I can’t find the “Smilin'”-based commercial on Youtube, but their other Coke commercial is on there, and it’s pretty great, too.

  3. It’s hard to state just how great the output of B&H was.

    When the kids were little we were watching “Home Alone” on teevee Thanksgiving week-end. They had a little news break around the commercials and announced that Tommy Boyce had killed himself. It knocked me for a loop. In his book Davy Jones says he realized Tommy dropped clues he was gonna check out but missed them until after the fact.
