The Monkees / Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd

Anchored by The Monkees’ frequent producer, composer, collaborator, and multi-instrumentalist Chip Douglas of Modern Folk Quartet and Turtles fame, Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. (1967) is stellar collection wherein country, psychedelic rock, folk, pop, and cabaret tracks coalesce into a rather captivating song-cycle. With plectrum in hand, the former Douglas Farthing Hatlelid plays the pocket on first-rate tunes by Jeff Barry, Barry Mann / Cynthia Weil, Harry Nilsson, Tommy Boyce / Bobby Hart, Gerry Goffin / Carole King, Michael Martin Murphy, and Mike Nesmith.
