Album of the Day
Pisces, Acquarius, Capricorn, & Jones Ltd.
The Monkees were on a commercial roll when they went into the studio to cut PISCES, AQUARIUS, CAPRICORN AND JONES LTD; the quartet had outsold The Beatles and The Rolling Stones in the preceding year. Micky, Davy, Mike and Peter were also at their artistic peak, and the resulting record stands proudly with the best of the era. A showcase for superb singing and playing from all four members, the 1967 Colgems collection features such outstanding songs as “Love Is Only Sleeping,” “Words,” “What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?” and Top 10 hit “Pleasant Valley Sunday.” Like its predecessors, PISCES, AQUARIUS, CAPRICORN AND JONES LTD was a million-seller, going to No.1 in the U.S.
