Forgotten Hits: February 11th

Forgotten Hits: February 11th: After receiving an enormous amount of flack for using studio musicians on their records, The Monkees announce that they will play their own instruments on their next LP.  (Have you seen "The Wrecking Crew"???  This same group of crackerjack musicians played on EVERYBODY'S records back then.  Why The Monkees were singled out is completely unfair.  After they'd finish a Monkees session, they'd go back up The Mamas and the Papas and then, later that same night, The Beach Boys in the studio … along with hundreds of others.)
