Pull up your socks

Dear Jackie,

I am writing to all Monkee Fans everywhere, what has happened to you? In America their record has reached number one, in two weeks. In Britain in two weeks it only reached number eighteen. I believe, as I’m sure many of you do, that we are letting the boys down. They care for us, let us show we care about them.

So come on and “pull up your socks”

Most considerate

Dear Jackie,

Thank you for the marvellous article entitled “THE MONKEES AND YOU” in the November Monkees Monthly. I couldn’t agree with you more! As far as I’m concerned the Monkees are the most considerate group there ever has been and ever will be.

I know, because when they came to England to give the concerts at Wembley Pool my friend and I bought tickets to see them. At the last minute our source of transport withdrew leaving us with two tickets and no way of getting to see them. We sent a letter to Keith Mallett along with our tickets telling him what had happened. About a month later we got our tickets back, signed!

Peace and Love (to quote Peter)

Better song

Dear Jackie,

On the flip side of the Monkee’s latest single is a song called ‘Goin’ Down’, which was written jointly by the Monkees. In my opinion this side is better than the A side, although I love ‘Daydream Believer.’

It seems that all my favourite Monkee songs were written by the Monkees themselves, so what I say is, let’s have more singles written by them,

Too dangerous

Dear Jackie,

I have just finished reading that bit about Micky and that one-man helicopter.

Please tell him that they’re dangerous and not even James Bond went up in his.

We want a whole Micky and if he kills himself flying that thing I don’t know what I’ll do.

Marvellous wallpaper

Dear Jackie,

I’ve been mad on The Monkees since they first appeared on T.V. and gradually have collected enough large pictures of the fab four to fill up my wall so now I don’t need wallpaper any more. I’ve also bought or taped all their singles, and L.P.’s (including ‘Daydream Believer’ which is great).

Why am I telling you all this? Because I’ve got what is known as a Common Cold. Now don’t say poor girl, because you see, I’m not miserable. Why? Well who could be with Davy, Peter, Mike and Micky staring at you from all angles and their smashing music filling the room.

Oh! how wonderful to have a cold.

P.S.-read in Monkees Monthly no. 10, that all the Monkees read their magazine so here’s a special line to them: Thank you for being you and swooning away the dreariness of a Cold.

Congrats to Davy

Dear Monkee Mail,

I can’t say how much I agree with the girl from Avonsleigh, Ramley Rd., Hants about “There is a Happy Land” I also heard this programme and I must say it was fantastic, groovy, peachy, Torkable and much more. I know Davy must have been congratulated many times over this. Another thing I would like to congratulate the Monkees on their Concerts at Wembley at which I spent the best day of my life and “Daydream Believer”! which is the most, you just can’t find words to describe it. So thank you and congratulations Monkees.

Love and Peace,
from a great (little) Monkee Lover
