making More of The Monkees Album,having backing Neal Diamond
on Little Bit Me,and using a JC Penny's ad as a album cover.When
their contract says they are to be consented in the making of music
and cover of the albums. Don Kirschner went back to New York,to
make that album,instead of being in Los Angelos California.They
found out about this album when they were in Michigan at a record
store.When Michael Nesmith,heard Neal Diamond on back up vocals,
while Davy was the lead singer on a Little Bit Be Me.He so mad.In
fact when the hearing was about this with matter,Michael Nesmith put
his fist through the wall,and said that could have been your face. With
Don Kirschner fired, The Monkees had freedom to sing and play the
music they want.

were happy with this victory.The Monkeemobile#2 was the stunt car.
