Ep. 3 - All The King's Horses Where's That Sound Coming From Presents: Questions But No Answers with Brian Marchese

    • Music

"All The King's Horses" seems like a song that Mike Nesmith would've written specifically for a Season One Monkees TV show romp (and indeed it was used as such), but in fact, he wrote and recorded it during the Mike and John and Bill period. It also seems like an instant bubblegum pop classic that Don Kirshner would have wanted to include on either of the first two Monkees albums, but it never found its way onto an album until 1990's rarities compilation Missing Links Vol 2 (one of the best rarities compilations by anyone ever). Joining me to talk about "All The King's Horses" is my good friend,  singer-songwriter etc etc Jason Bourgeois. Or I should say, joining me to EVENTUALLY talk about "All The King's Horses" is my good friend, singer-songwriter etc etc Jason Bourgeois. I had to describe the first part of our conversation because the recording didn't save, or did save but vanished...I dunno. When we actually DID start recording, we were recounting amazing shared memories of Monkees/Nez experiences over the last dozen or so years. THEN we finally get to "All The King's Horses". So this episode is not as much "Nez Class With Professor Marchese" and a bit more "Brian and Jason hang out and tell some stories". But they're good stories and I hope you dig hearing them. In the accompanying photo, Jason and I are at Canter's Deli after having witnessed Nez's last ever performance at the Greek Theater on November 14, 2021.
