A nice copy of a rare Monkees-related LP.
Background: Released in 1965 before he joined the Monkees, David Jones was the first album by Davy Jones.
The album reached #185 on the U.S. album charts. The first single, “What Are We Going to Do?” reached #93 on the U.S. singles chart.
As fans of the Monkees know, Davy Jones had a career prior to being cast in the television series…. Here he attempts to sing pop hits. … The only indication that it was recorded in the mid-’60s is the album highlight, his cover of Dylan’s “It Ain’t Me Babe.” Here the song becomes an odd combination of lounge/folk/pop and Broadway. Fans and collectors would want this in their collections, but others would find little if anything of interest.
