Adding to cart… The item has been added
Micky, Mike, Peter, and Davy handled virtually all instrumentation used here, other than occasional bass input from producer Chip Douglas or Mike's longtime cohort and future First National Bandmate John London, or the horn solo used in Shades of Grey. The boys remain proud of this album because it was done the way the critics said it could not be done.

The strongest tracks are the Nesmith country-rocker You Told Me (featuring Peter's show-stealing banjo mixed with bass, drums, and guitar), I'll Spend My Life With You, the somewhat audacious Forget That Girl, Shades of Grey, the rock masterpiece For Pete's Sake, the brilliant retro-50s rocker No Time (a studio jam written by Micky and Mike and then credited to engineer Hank Cicalo as a gift for his hard work, whose royalties helped him purchase a house), and Micky's delightfully overblown Randy Scouge Git - aka Alternate Title.

Also entertaining is the humorous "outtake" Zilch - one has to laugh with the boys as they chant bizarre catchphrases heard in their travels and finally break down at the end. Less effective is the "outtake" Band Six, a botched attempt to play the "Merrily We Move Along" Warner Brothers cartoon theme.
