it's a girl, mrs. walker

Original recording produced by Kit Lambert at Kingsway studios, London in October 1967.

These two, neither included on the final album remarkably - the second a Keith Moon composition - manage to sound even more like the Monkees than the Monkees. Some stellar syncopated drumming from Keith; a little Spanish Syd filtered strumming from Pete; and a fade-out on the first track which sounds suspiciously like the intro to the pompous 80's dross of "I Don't Like Mondays".

Friday, here we come.

Remixed and remastered by Andy Macpherson & Jon Astley at Revolution Studios.

I prefer both of those to most of the album tracks

Yes, glad you approve. It's something of a mystery that these two gems weren't deemed strong enough for inclusion at the time. Parts of "Glow Girl", though, eventually made it onto "Tommy"; the idea was clearly nascent.
