Monkees - 'Barreful Of Monkees' (Rhino)

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Twelve songs aimed toward the younger pop fans.A couple of novelty cuts include the down right silly "Gonna Buy Me A Dog"(a different version than what I remember)and "Pillow Time".Best tracks as far as I'm concerned are "Your Auntie Grizelda","Laugh" and the somewhat jamming "Saturday's Child".Wonder why they've never performed that song live."

""Pillow Time," sung by Mickey Dolenz, is the best cut on the disc: a sweet, sly, jazzy tune persuading a child to sleep with visions of a "sleepy train" coming to collect them. And thus ends this terrific cd for kids. Opening with the boistress "Monkees Theme," and filled in the middle with such yummy selections as Carol King's "Your Auntie Grizelda" and Mike Nesmith's "Papa Genes's Blues," this is the perfect cd for your kids or the kid in you!"
