THE MONKEES - She (1966)
It’s kinda amazing how garage-y the professional studio musicians could sound that recorded The Monkees backing tracks.

June 18th, 1967 was a big day in Monkees history!
On that day, Micky and Peter attended the Monterey Pop Festival and saw Jimi Hendrix perform, which inspired them to ask him to appear on their next tour. Micky also bought his Moog synthesizer this weekend at the festival.
Peter helped out at the festival by introducing bands like the Grateful Dead and the Buffalo Springfield.
The two twin Nez hats I got made and shipped off yesterday morning to their new homes :) Hopefully they’ll be enjoyed as much as I enjoyed making them!
As always, if anyone wants to buy one, let me know!

Bit of music trivia: the Pete Thomas mentioned here (the drummer in the band Michael Nesmith was producing at the time) went on to become Elvis Costello’s longtime drummer.
