Skit comedy + the First music videos=Masterpiece
8 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

My mom was a big Monkees fan back in the 60's and Mike Nesmith was her favorite. We had the VHS copy since the early 80's, even though neither my mom, dad or anyone else knows how they got it. Anyway, the comedy skits are funny and the music videos are time capsules. Four of the videos (Magic, Crusin' (also known as 'Lucy and Romona and their brother Sunset Sam'), Light and Tonite are from Nesmith's 1980 album 'Infinte Rider on the Big Dogma' and Rio was from 'From a Radio Engine to a Photon Wing' in 1976. Rio was on of the first commercial music videos released. The DVD features a running skit not featured on the VHS release (at least MY VHS) and a hilarious and baffling commentary by Nez himself.
