Thanks for sharing that -- what a remarkable artifact!
Where the heck did that come from?
Good quality audio and video-- too good for TV of its era.
Large(r) format (35 mm??) movie film?
I am sure y'all know Mike Nesmith wrote the song.
(Ms Ronstadt, a few years later on)
all the best,
..was a beauty.
Jerry Brown had good taste.
I was going to mention Mike Nesmith, since so many people didn't seem to know that he wrote the song, at least back pre-internet, anyway.
That clip you posted of him doing Different Drum was great. I've never seen it before, and I'm still smiling. Thanks!
I got to see Linda in concert once, sometime in the mid-1970s. Mmmm.
It's apparently a Monkees artifact, and I was a pretty rabid Monkees fan in my late single-digits of age!
(and not that I'd admit that just anywhere, either)
good old teh interwebs
all the best,
I watched the prefab four show with some regularity, but don't recall seeing Nesmith do his song. Even if I did see it, the way he rattles through it for comedic effect wouldn't have made it stand out for me.
It was many years after the Stone Ponies had a hit with it that I found out it was written by Mike Nesmith.
Those horns in the cab! I mean, standing in front of those and trying to sing? Must have had ringing ears, for days.
I believe those are Acoustic 270 amps with cab loaded with Altec 418 speakers. 375 watts!
