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, PISCES, AQUARIUS, CAPRICORN AND JONES LTD features such outstanding songs as “Love Is Only Sleeping,” “Words,” “What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round?” and “Pleasant Valley Sunday.” Like its predecessors, the album was a million-seller, topping the chart in the U.S. this week in 1967 (it would remain at No.1 for five weeks).
