"One Man Shy" debuted what would be The Monkees' biggest-selling single, "I'm a Believer," written by Neil Diamond with the backing track recorded in New York City by Don Kirshner. Michael Nesmith was intended to sing lead, but at the vocal session in October 1966 he argued with producer Jeff Barry and stated, "I've produced records and that ain't no hit." Barry eventually asked Mike to leave and Micky Dolenz replaced him at lead vocal. The song hit #1 and became the biggest single of 1967, but the battle with Barry reflected the growing animosity between the group and their musical directors at Screen Gems.
