Monkees - “Listen To The Band”
The Monkees perform "Listen To The Band" at the State Theatre in Minneapolis on Thursday November 15th 2012. This recording does a good job in parsing out Nesmith's 12-string guitar playing. Returning as a 3 piece for the first time were Micky Dolenz, Peter Tork – and Michael Nesmith, who was the big surprise of this tour. Except for a few European dates and LA one-off's in the late '90s, Nesmith hadn’t joined any of the Monkee reunion tours since the band originally broke up. Original member Davy Jones had been part of all of the previous reunions, but had passed away the previous February. This is the complete song, along with the band introductions. Towards the end, you'll hear the opening bars of "Pleasant Valley Sunday".
