1. "You Told Me" - A Perfect way to start off the album. This is a classic Mike song that features some great banjo playing from Peter. One of my favorite Monkees songs. 10/10
2. "I'll Spend My Life With You" - This is a Boyce/Hart song that was originally recorded for an earlier Monkees album. It's a slow song that features some great vocals from Micky. In my opinion this song can be overlooked, because it's sandwiched between two amazing songs. 8/10
3. "Forget That Girl" - This song was written by Chip Douglas, and has some good vocals from Davy. Very catchy song. 9/10
4. "Band 6" - Not really a song, but just a short session of the Monkees practicing in the studio.
5. "You Just May Be The One" - Another excellent Mike song, which had been recorded earlier and featured in some Monkees episodes. This version, with them playing their instruments, is much better, and really has a classic Monkees sound. 10/10

The Monkees were also the top selling act of 1967, but it was based on the success of their first 2 albums, the self titled "The Monkees" followed by "More Of The Monkees". However, it was the release of "More Of The Monkees" that led to the boys earning the right to record an album playing all of their own instruments (save for the bass work of producer Chip Douglas, and a horn and cello player) and also the ousting of producer Don "The Golden Ear" Kirschner.
Headquarters is, at heart, a garage band tour de force. That's right, 4 millionaires, 4 of the most popular figures in music and television in the year 1967, but the force behind this album is just so raw, I even want to use the word "punk" here!
Think about it; Micky Dolenz had been playing the drums seriously for less than a year. Nesmith and Tork were adequate at guitar, and Tork could play a bit of piano, but neither were fully polished musicians (yet). And Jones could merely sing and bang a tambourine or shake some maracas. To top that all off, Dolenz was the only one of the 4 who was commonly accepted to have held a good range of voice.
So why is this important? Well, the 4 Monkees just went into the studio and made it happen. Some of the songs they wrote, and some were written by the usual Monkees songwriting teams....Read more ›
