This gives an indication of what the third 'variety style' season of The Monkees might have looked like, where the boys' comic antics would fill Act One and then a musical guest would be interviewed in Act Two. Davy chats with Charlie Smalls, later the songwriter for "The Wiz," using this format. The Jones-Smalls jam session was filmed more than a month after the rest of the episode, and is in fact the last segment made for the series. See more
