First appearance of "Last Train to Clarksville"
5 December 2013 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Second episode broadcast (Sept 19), "Monkey See, Monkey Die," was a great improvement over the first, though the starry-eyed 'Davy's in Love' routine has already grown tiresome. The Monkees show up at the seaside mansion of the late millionaire John Cunningham for the reading of his will (they get the piano!), and must help the young heiress (Stacey Maxwell) spend one night there to inherit, despite mysterious disappearances and a failed séance. Stacey Maxwell was a British-born actress who eventually left Hollywood for her native England. Henry Corden makes the first of five appearances as the band's overbearing landlord Babbit, and veteran Milton Parsons gets the biggest laugh when The Monkees ask how they had met John Cunningham, telling them that he always appreciated them returning a wallet to him containing $600.00 Micky: "ah, cause it showed our honesty?" Milton: "oh no sir, because it wasn't his wallet!" Another plus is the debut of their current single, "Last Train to Clarksville," issued a full month before, composed by producers Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, and, strangely enough, the very last track recorded for the debut LP (July 25). The other track is "Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day" (July 23), composed by Boyce and Steven Venet, both expertly performed by Micky (as producers, Boyce and Hart closely followed The Beatles' model). Both tracks are distinguished by the expert guitar work of Louie Shelton, who later did the same on Boyce and Hart's "Valleri" and Micky's "Little Girl." "Monkey See, Monkee Die" was 5th in production, filmed June 20-24.
