Last Train To Squaresville Vol3 – Hey! Hey! We’re Not the Monkees! – mixed MP3 – Download/stream
As we enter week two of the international lockdown, I have been busy in the lab, brewing up the mix you see before you.
Recent acquisition of a couple of choice Monkees’ covers had me rummaging in the crates to pull out enough for a whole mix.
What you get is ‘Hey! Hey! We’re Not the Monkees!’, 24 tracks, including a couple of demos as well as later version of songs by their composers, and a grip of contemporary (and even previous) versions of songs made famous by Micky, Davy, Mike and Peter.
So take a giant step, pull down the ones and zeroes and dig!
So dig it, make sure to tune in, and I’ll see you all next week.
