By Michael Patrick Boyd on August 31, 2011
Format: Paperback
The Monkees Tale by Eric Lefcowitz, copyrighted in 1985, is 103 pages. The one that I am reviewing is the 1986 second printing of the book. The book covers the years from 1965 to 1984. So the is pre MTV reunion. The book is divided into thirteen chapters and the main downside is the book does not list how long each chapter is. Also the biography, if you want to call it that, is only 83 pages long. The last two chapters deal the group filmography and discography. The Monkees Tale goes into great detail of the show history, the music, the movie Head and their only television special called 33¨÷ Revolutions Per Monkee. The downside to the book is when the author talks about each former Monkee after the breakup of the group. Davy Jones section of the book is like reading a cliff note of his life. The most detailed one is Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork and Michael Dolenz fall somewhere in between. What you will not find is the MTV reunion, Pool It, and Just Us, and Mike Nesmith brief return to the group. The Monkees Tale by Eric Lefcowitz left me wanting more and therefore gets a B+. A footnote to this review is the author of this book has come out with and expanded update of the group called Monkee Business: The Revolutionary Made-For-TV.
