Bought this Michael Nesmith LP about 1974/5 from a wallpaper shop in Twickenham. In 1993 it was stolen by a gang of burglars. The record just happened to be left on the turntable of the stereo system they carried away into the night. They were probably Ultravox fans........I was distraught at the theft of this chunk of vinyl - especially the final tracks on the flip side The Back Porch and A Fruit Jar Full of Iced Tea and Prairie Lullaby. If I think of The Monkees I am always transported back to the Chemistry Lab of my Secondary School. Why?
