    ‘Progress’
    Are people scared of "progression"? Are they scared that little green men with atomic water pistols
    will come and invade the earth and invade us if psychedelic music takes over the British pop charts?
    There are British artistes trying to "progress" with music—the Herd, Pink Floyd, Tomorrow,
    Yardbirds, Move, Who, Jimi Hendrix, Hollies and the Beatles to name just a few. Why didn't
    "Strawberry Fields'' and "Penny Lane" make number one? Were the British public scared that if they
    bought that record it might incite more groups to "progress"? Why have people started running down
    the Beatles because they have progressed? Elvis Presley still sings rock and roll—and that went out
    five years ago. Why aren't we doing so well in the American charts? - Because the Americans have
    “progressed'' and don't want to know most of our hit records. America leads the world again—and
    we'll not regain the lead in the music business unless we do progress—R. K. Cannings-Bushell, 35

    extremely capable—there are better. I think as far as he's concerned, his sound and visual performance

    EAST VILLAGE OTHER (page 6) ‘MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL’ by Sam Silver
    The Pop Festival at Monterey popped from Friday night, June 14, until Sunday night, June 16. In terms
    of music presentation, it was superb. The sound quality was the best I’ve heard in any theatre, indoor
    or outdoor. . But the music was not the entire festival, the music acts as spokesman for the hip culture
    of the West Coast. The pop festival embodied the fusion of the two major hip life-styles prevalent here.
    The Los Angeles people set up the festival, advertised it, and all that. The San Francisco people
    provided the festival with meaning, direction, and excitement. The larger thing that happened here, is
    that the participants were, to an individual, members of the turned-on culture, while a good part of the
    audience was either innocent or straight. After all, the festival was advertised on every rock radio station,
    up and down the west coast. Plus, it happened in a straight town. It is to the festival’s enduring credit,
    that it came off without one pot bust, or any other unpleasantness. The one unifying feature of the U.S.
    groups, was that, with few exceptions, they, and their music, were politically potent, and anti-war in
    intent. Note the lyrics to “
    Fixin’ to Die Rag,” by Country Joe and the Fish:
    “one two three, what are we fighting for? don’t ask me, I don’t give a damn, next stop is Vietnam,
    five six seven, open up the pearly gates don’t ask me to tell you why whoopee, we’re all gonna die."

    Joe
    ’s troops also sang a one-liner that they lifted from Charlie Mingus, which goes, “PLEASE DON’T
    DROP YOUR H-BOMB ON ME, YOU CAN DROP IT RIGHT ON YOURSELF.
    The Grateful Dead
    sang their VIOLA LEE BLUES, which has a chorus line which goes,
    “Some got six months, some got one solid/
    Some got one solid year, and beat it.”
    Dave Crosby, of the Byrds, spoke for many, when he said that he agreed with Paul McCartney, in
    that “if the world leaders took
    LSD, it might put an end to war.” Crosby, with a large STP sticker on
    his guitar, also made reference to President
    Kennedy’s assassination, when he said, “We all know
    that President Kennedy was killed by a group of men,” refuting the Warren report.
    The Byrds then
    sang, “
    HE WAS A FRIEND OF MINE.” By the way, Crosby started his speech by saying, “I know they
    are going to censor this, but I want you to know ...” The music is spokesman for the culture, and the
    culture is definitely in favor of love, and opposed to war. The most highly-developed Hip culture in the
    U.S., is that of the San Francisco Bay area. There were eight groups from S. F. in the festival. They did
    more than just play for the paying customers. The amphitheatre held about 10,000 people, but there
    were at least 50,000 people available at all times, it is an integral part of the S. F. tradition, to reinvest
    in the community, so, while the paying customers held their ticket stubs about a mile away, on the
    football field of Monterey Peninsula College the S. F. groups and
    Eric Burton’s Animals played for
    nothing, from dusk till dawn.

    The festival existed in a kind of never-never land. There was a meditation room, where people could
    sit and trip. Many people were turning on, and the heat said not a word, and there was not one bust.

    Derek Taylor
    acted as publicity director for the festival, and held a press conference at seven P.M.,
    on Saturday and Sunday. At Saturday’s conference, he quoted, from some local press clippings, about
    the fact that people were smoking
    LSD at the festival. He said, and I’ll quote, “We’ll soon put a stop to
    that.”
    [Ha-ha-ha, geddit? Ed.] The environment of the pop festival was a very changeable thing. If you
    came there with a lot of money, you would have had no trouble spending it at high speed. If you came
    there with no money, you would have had minimal trouble getting yourself fed, stoned, and
    entertained. On the first night, at least, people were being let into the amphitheatre sans tickets; after
    that, it tightened up, but not very much. A great many people came with only a sleeping bag. They
    were accomodated at the Football field, and in almost any of the buildings on the grounds of the
    festival'. The festival occupied the Monterey County Fair Grounds. At the Sunday night press
    conference, Derek Taylor produced Police Chief Marinello. The police chief commented on how
    peaceful the “Hippies” were, and announced that he had sent half of the police home on the previous
    night, and that he was sending even more home that night. He also said that he was going to tour the
    Haight-Ashbury, personally guided by people at the festival. At this point, Taylor graced him with a
    pendant necklace, Marinello saying that he wouldn’t be dressed without it, in the Haight. The Heat
    was remarkably invisible throughout the festival. The fact that there were no busts, is probably
    because the boys in blue were in sympathy with the festival. I heard of many cases of a policeman
    leaving the area where people were smoking grass, to avoid temptation, I guess. The booths on the
    grounds sold everything a bourgeois Hippie type could want. There was a booth for the Underground
    Press Syndicate, run by the L. A. Oracle, and a Good Karma Turn-On Health Food Stand, with groovy
    carrot juice, and something purple, called Festival Punch. There was an art gallery, which had
    paintings and photographs, and a building which was ostensibly an exhibit for some equipment
    manufacturer, which really merely
    played the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album
    over and over again
    , at high volume. There was a persistent rumor, that one, two, or all of the
    Beatles were at the festival, but this could not be verified. In the words of
    Derek Taylor, “If they
    were here, they’d be dressed like Hippies, and you wouldn’t be able to tell who they were, so you’ll
    never know, will you?” The sound system, as I have already said, was remarkable. The music
    contained many surprises. Despite some obvious lacks, e.g., Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, the thing
    was programmed excellently. On Friday night, a group was premiered at the festival, called
    The
    Paupers
    . You are sure to hear from them in the future. They were remarkable, especially the bass
    player. Also, on Friday night,
    Eric Burton and the gang played, probably, the finest rendition of GIN
    HOUSE BLUES
    I have ever heard. Saturday was the day of the San Francisco Sound. In the
    afternoon, many of the S.F. groups played, including
    Country Joe, Canned Heat, The Quicksilver
    Messenger Service
    , the first appearance of Big Brother and the Holding Company; Janis Joplin
    and the crew sang so well that they brought them back again that night; and a new group, called the
    Electric Flag, which was built around Mike Bloomfield, former lead guitarist with Paul Butterfield.
    By the time they were through, I was calling the
    Electric Flag, “The Best Possible Blues Band.”
    Saturday night was a hard rock time, featuring
    Moby Grape and Otis Redding. Redding has so
    much soul, that I hardly understand it. The entire texture of the festival changed, on Sunday
    afternoon, when Ravi Shankar played. The place was the same, but the vibrations were entirely
    different. Ravi held the attention of ten thousand people, for four hours or more. Throughout one
    entire raga, he asked that no one smoke, and that photographers cease taking pictures. The horde of
    photographers stopped their labor, and the only smoke was that of incense. I thought I saw a
    Beatle,
    when Ravi was playing, but he was dressed like a hippie, and you can never be sure.
    That evening,
    the
    Blues Project played so elegantly that they seemed like a modern string and percussion quintet.
    Later in the evening, an aggregation called
    THE WHO played. It was after PICTURES OF LILLY, that,
    as
    Brian Jones predicted, they broke everyone up, in more ways than one. I hear they go through
    three guitars on a slow week. They were followed by
    the Grateful Dead, who were beautiful, and
    who were followed by
    the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Jimi did a beautiful Spade routine, and he
    finished by chewing, burning, and balling his guitar.
    Jimi socked it to them and they went
    home
    , but the Festival was not yet over. Everybody that played there, played for expenses, and the
    proceeds are slated for charity. The Board of Directors asked the San Francisco Diggers if they
    wanted any of the money. They got a rather sharp refusal and retort, which went something like, “If
    you want to help Diggers out, you’d let people in the concerts for nothing.” As of right now, the
    money has not yet found a home. They have plenty of it, and I hope Donovan, Paul, Smokey, and the
    others on the Board of Directors find a good place for it. The Pop Festival was a well-coordinated
    fusion of many diverse forces. That it went off smoothly, says a lot for all involved, especially the
    Hippies, who have a habit of taking care of their own. A lot of straight people were turned on to what
    is happening in music right now, and they liked it. There was a lot of quality in the performances here,
    and a lot of Good Karma everywhere.

    MIAMI HERALD (page?) ‘Step Back Stage With the Monkees’ by Nancy Beth Jackson (Herald Staff Writer)
    Why didn't the Monkees give local press interviews in Miami last weekend?
    "We're mutes," explained Peter Tork before Sunday's concert in the Miami Beach Convention Hall.
    "Besides, we don't need interviews. That's us on stage."

    He might have said more, the talk coming as easy as it was, but a publicity girl ran up with a glare and
    a roar.
    "No interviews. No interviews. You have to leave," she snarled.
    When asked why the Monkees weren't giving interviews, she had a different answer.
    They were tired. They were still on London time after concerts and that three-day filming sequence in
    Paris. They couldn't be bothered before the show. They couldn't be bothered after. Their show,
    according to her would run twice the length of the average per
    -former's. That would have to do for
    Miami fans.

    Natural Makeup And Long Hair
    [B&W photo, ‘Monkees Ham It Up. With Deejay ... Mike Nesmith, left, Davey Jones, Rlck Shaw, Peter
    Tork, Micky Dolenz.’]

    THE BOYS THEMSELVES seemed up for the appearance. Dressed in neat business suits, they were set
    apart immediately from the accompanying acts in cowboy
    hats, African furs, clown collars and bright
    purple pants under red taffeta coats. They wore natural looking stage makeup and
    long hair.

    They arrived backstage minutes before the first half of the show ended. Mike Nesmith stood center
    stage behind the curtains giving the place a once over. Then he began talking to the disk jockeys and
    other performers in the narrow corridor behind the curtains and wall that was called backstage.

    While the anudience broke for cokes, the Monkees and the WQAM dejays moved to the south west of
    the convention hall to a roomy area, behind the curtains and next to the stage door where they posed
    for pictures.

    "Ah so honorable disk jockeys," Davey Jones mugged, playing the Chinaman bit.
    They weren't still a minute when a camera pointed their way.
    "Go home to your mothers. You don't want to be here in all this carnage," Mickey "Circus Boy"
    Jaggard yelled to the unseen, but not un
    heard, audience out front.
    Davey followed the same line, hamming it up telling the kids out front to be quiet
    The Monkee four had had a rough day. It went like this: Fly into town in the middle of the night after
    a Jackson
    -ville concert. Get to bed by 5 a.m. Turn up at WQAM by 1 p.m. for some promotional
    recordings. Listen to teeny
    -boppers outside their Miami Beach hotel. Ready to go on stage by
    9:30 p.m. before a squealing audience.

    Can They Sing? —Who Knows?
    RUMORS LAST FALL suggested the Monkees couldn't make personal appearance[s] because they
    were just personality boys working hard on their music lessons while someone else handled the
    sound.

    So how do they sound in person? Who knows?
    On the convention hall stage, they couldn't be heard for the cheering. Nearly every youth in the
    audience was standing on his seat. Some adults, too, to see if nothing else.

    Policemen were all over the place beginning with the 10-to 15-foot corridor roped off around the
    raided stage like a no-man's land between enemy countries. But this no-man's land was filled with
    uni
    formed policemen sitting about five feet apart.
    Nobody was allowed backstage without a special badge one frizzy hair performer said. A WQAM tiger
    yellow jacket, however, would do.

    The Monkee management looks almost scared to let one of the group, open a mouth although the
    boys appear to be anything but mutes, real or intellectual.

    The Monkees appear to be wind-up toys of the manage-ment who created the group. Management
    mutes.

    But how long do mutes last in show business?

    ‘T
    he 'Driving, Frantic' Monkees Swing Into Forest Hills Festival’ by Murray Schumach
    Despite the huge success of the Monkees, there has been a decided reluctance to put the rock ‘n’ roll
    quartet on public display live. For this Hollywood-created i
    mmitation of the Beatles was a pure
    synthetic.

    On their television series and their records, their voices on their performances on drums guitars,
    banjos or anything else, have been dubbed. Sometimes almost everything on a record is the work of
    others, apart from engineering gimmickry, to attain what one of their en
    -tourage called "a driving,
    ex
    citing, frantic young sound," and what another labeled "upbeat in lyrical contact."
    This weekend, after trial runs outside New York, the four young men were finally unveiled here, on
    the stage of the Forest Hills Stadium, as part of this year's 1967 music fes
    tival arranged by Leonard
    Ruskin.

    The setting on Saturday night was almost perfect The rain had stopped and almost all of the 14,000
    seats were filled, mainly with girls in their early teens. A half moon rose in the twilight, giving a
    romantic touch to the audience's adora
    tion, expressed in hanging bedsheets painted with such
    slo
    gans as "Monkee Power" and "We Love the Monkees."
    Ear-Shattering Adulation
    As it turned out, no one profiting from the millions being brought in on television, radio, gadgets and
    costume manufac
    ture, need have worried about the investment in the Monkees. The audience
    protected them beautifully.

    From the moment the four personable young men bounced out on the stage at 9:15, until they left an
    hour later, amid a psychedelic display on a screen and swinging giant spotlights on the audience, a
    shrill, ear
    -shattering stream of adulation pierced the air.
    The Monkees wore a variety of suits, shirts and shoes, and they had enormous energy as they jumped
    up and down like human pogo sticks or threw themselves in amusing dance steps that allowed their
    collar length hair to flap like wings One could also see them put
    ting fingers to guitar or banjo, sticks
    to drums or mouth to mike. There was an unquestionable strong rock beat that vibrated steadily
    through the stadium and periodic sounds that were identifiable as country music.

    All of this was complicated by an impulsive electronic system. In fact, in one of the few lulls, when the
    audience stopped for breath, a voice presumably belonging to one of the Monkees, was heard to say
    "a little bit of sabotage.' And shortly after that all four of the Monkees—Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, Davy
    Jones and Mike Nesmith—went into a prolonged period of tuning up while some other people, tinkered
    with machinery on stage

    Audience Undeterred
    None of this bothered the audience. It shrilled steadily and piercingly. At the same time, what seemed
    like thousands of flash bulbs kept popping.

    The Monkees spoofed the audience, taking pictures of one another in weird poses waving, jumping and
    feign
    ing screams of ecstasy. Periodically, while the Monkees went through the motions of singing and
    playing, color photos of them were thrown on the screen over the stage showing them in closeup or
    dis
    porting at the beach or in their television shows.
    This, of course, only made the bedlam more intense. At one point a few other musicians were used.
    This seemed to make no difference.

    One mystery was solved toward the end. Frequently during the performance, sounds that resembled
    the lowing of a sick cow hovered over the stadium. This turned out to be one of those horns often
    heard at Shea Stadium during base
    ball games. It didn't seem to hurt the musical evening. In fact, it
    was soothing, a sort of poultice for the eardrums.”

    Monkees Shine At Miami Concert’ by Linda Huddleston, Sarah Gurtis, And Mary Anne Gillis
    Ten Thousand people in the fo
    rm of mini-skirts, mod shirts, and frustrated parents poured into the
    Miami Beach Auditorium for the Monkees’ concert presented on July 9.
    Scheduled for 8:30 the show
    began promptly, opening with the Sundowners, an American group, who have a good polished act.

    The Sundowners were followed by Lynne Randall, a pretty 17-year-old, who is Australia’s no. One pop
    singer. She communicated well with the audience.

    Next on the agenda were the Jimi Hendrix Experience, a group from England. Their performance
    was psychedelic to say the least, and was highlighted by
    Hendrix playing his guitar with his teeth.
    sychophantic entrance of the Monkees, in conservative black suits, sparked screams and shrieks of
    delight from the teens while undaunted parents craned their ne
    cks to get a glimpse of the “fab” four.
    After a few of the expected Monkee-shines, they plunged into “Last Train To Clarksville,” barely
    audible above the din. They continued with their biggest hit, “I’m A Believer.”

    The concert proceeded with the help of psychedelic lights alternated with color still and motion
    pictures from their television series which were projected on an overhead screen, adding to the
    excitement of the audience.

    Solos aptly displayed the individual talents of Mike Nesmith, David Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter
    Tork. Together again on stage they sang a few songs from their new album and finished with “Steppin’
    Stone.” Throughout the entire concert the Miami Beach Police Department was on hand to control the
    swarming teenagers but as it turned out the crowd was cooperative and orderly.

    ‘Progress’:
    Are people scared of "progression"? Are they scared that little green men with atomic water
    pistols will come and invade the earth and invade us if psychedelic music takes over the British pop
    charts? There are British artistes trying to "pro
    gress" with music—the Herd, Pink Floyd, Tomorrow,
    Yardbirds, Move, Who,Jimi Hendrix, Hollies and the
    Beatles
    to name just a few. Why didn't "Strawberry Fields'' and "Penny Lane" make number one?
    Were the British public scared that if they bought that record it might incite more groups to "progress"?
    Why have people started running down the Beatles because they have progressed? Elvis Presley still
    sings rock and roll—and that went out five years ago. Why aren't we doing so well in the American
    charts? - Because the Americans have “progressed'' and don't want to know most of our hit records.
    America leads the world again—and we'll not regain the lead in the music business unless we do
    progress—R. K. Cannings-Bushell, 35 Lewis Lane, Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

    EAST VILLAGE OTHER (page 6) ‘MONTEREY POP FESTIVAL’ by Sam Silver
    The Pop Festival at Monterey popped from Fri day night, June 14, until Sunday night, June 16. In terms
    of music presentation, it was superb. The sound quality was the best I’ve heard in any theatre, indoor
    or outdoor. . But the music was not the entire festival, the music acts as spokesman for the hip culture
    of the West Coast. The pop festival embodied the fusion of the two major hip life-styles prevalent here.
    The Los Angeles people set up the festival, advertised it, and all that. The San Francisco people
    provided the festival with meaning, direction, and excitement. The larger thing that happened here, is
    that the participants were, to an individual, members of the turned-on culture, while a good part of the
    audience was either innocent or straight. After all, the festival was advertised on every rock radio
    station, up and down the west coast. Plus, it happened in a straight town. It is to the festival’s enduring
    credit, that it came off without one pot bust, or any other unpleasantness. The one unifying feature of
    the U.S. groups, was that, with few exceptions, they, and their music, were politically potent, and anti-
    war in intent. Note the lyrics to “
    Fixin’ to Die Rag,” by Country Joe and the Fish:
    “one two three, what are we fighting for? don’t ask me,
    I don’t give a damn, next stop is Vietnam,
    five six seven, open up the pearly gates
    don’t ask me to tell you why whoopee, we’re all gonna die."

    Joe
    ’s troops also sang a one-liner that they lifted from Charlie Mingus, which goes, “PLEASE DON’T
    DROP YOUR H-BOMB ON ME, YOU CAN DROP IT RIGHT ON YOURSELF.

    The Grateful Dead
    sang their VIOLA LEE BLUES, which has a chorus line which goes,
    “Some got six months, some got one solid/
    Some got one solid year, and beat it.”
    Dave Crosby, of the Byrds, spoke for many, when he said that he agreed with Paul McCartney, in
    that “if the world leaders took
    LSD, it might put an end to war.” Crosby, with a large STP sticker on
    his guitar, also made reference to President
    Kennedy’s assassination, when he said, “We all know
    that President Kennedy was killed by a group of men,” refuting the Warren report.
    The Byrds then
    sang, “
    HE WAS A FRIEND OF MINE.” By the way, Crosby started his speech by saying, “I know they
    are going to censor this, but I want you to know ...” The music is spokesman for the culture, and the
    culture is definitely in favor of love, and opposed to war. The most highly-developed Hip culture in the
    U.S., is that of the San Francisco Bay area. There were eight groups from S. F. in the festival. They did
    more than just play for the paying customers. The amphitheatre held about 10,000 people, but there
    were at least 50,000 people available at all times, it is an integral part of the S. F. tradition, to reinvest
    in the community, so, while the paying customers held their ticket stubs about a mile away, on the
    football field of Monterey Peninsula College the S. F. groups and
    Eric Burton’s Animals played for
    nothing, from dusk till dawn.

    The festival existed in a kind of never-never land. There was a meditation room, where people could
    sit and trip. Many people were turning on, and the heat said not a word, and there was not one bust.
    Derek Taylor acted as publicity director for the festival, and held a press conference at seven P.M.,
    on Saturday and Sunday. At Saturday’s conference, he quoted, from some local press clippings, about
    the fact that people were smoking
    LSD at the festival. He said, and I’ll quote, “We’ll soon put a stop to
    that.”
    [Ha-ha-ha, geddit? Ed.] The environment of the pop festival was a very changeable thing. If you
    came there with a lot of money, you would have had no trouble spending it at high speed. If you came
    there with no money, you would have had minimal trouble getting yourself fed, stoned, and
    entertained. On the first night, at least, people were being let into the amphitheatre sans tickets; after
    that, it tightened up, but not very much. A great many people came with only a sleeping bag. They
    were accomodated at the Football field, and in almost any of the buildings on the grounds of the
    festival'. The festival occupied the Monterey County Fair Grounds. At the Sunday night press
    conference, Derek Taylor produced Police Chief Marinello. The police chief commented on how
    peaceful the “Hippies” were, and announced that he had sent half of the police home on the previous
    night, and that he was sending even more home that night. He also said that he was going to tour
    the Haight-Ashbury, personally guided by people at the festival. At this point, Taylor graced him with
    a pendant necklace, Marinello saying that he wouldn’t be dressed without it, in the Haight. The Heat
    was remarkably invisible throughout the festival. The fact that there were no busts, is probably
    because the boys in blue were in sympathy with the festival. I heard of many cases of a policeman
    leaving the area where people were smoking grass, to avoid temptation, I guess. The booths on the
    grounds sold everything a bourgeois Hippie type could want. There was a booth for the Underground
    Press Syndicate, run by the L. A. Oracle, and a Good Karma Turn-On Health Food Stand, with groovy
    carrot juice, and something purple, called Festival Punch. There was an art gallery, which had
    paintings and photographs, and a building which was ostensibly an exhibit for some equipment
    manufacturer, which really merely
    played the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album
    over and over again
    , at high volume. There was a persistent rumor, that one, two, or all of the
    Beatles were at the festival, but this could not be verified. In the words of
    Derek Taylor, “If they
    were here, they’d be dressed like Hippies, and you wouldn’t be able to tell who they were, so you’ll
    never know, will you?” The sound system, as I have already said, was remarkable. The music
    contained many surprises. Despite some obvious lacks, e.g., Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, the thing was
    programmed excellently. On Friday night, a group was premiered at the festival, called
    The Paupers.
    You are sure to hear from them in the future. They were remarkable, especially the bass player. Also,
    on Friday night,
    Eric Burton and the gang played, probably, the finest rendition of GIN HOUSE
    BLUES
    I have ever heard. Saturday was the day of the San Francisco Sound. In the afternoon, many
    of the S.F. groups played, including
    Country Joe, Canned Heat, The Quicksilver Messenger
    Service
    , the first appearance of Big Brother and the Holding Company; Janis Joplin and the
    crew sang so well that they brought them back again that night; and a new group, called the
    Electric
    Flag
    , which was built around Mike Bloomfield, former lead guitarist with Paul Butterfield. By the
    time they were through, I was calling the
    Electric Flag, “The Best Possible Blues Band.” Saturday
    night was a hard rock time, featuring
    Moby Grape and Otis Redding. Redding has so much soul,
    that I hardly understand it. The entire texture of the festival changed, on Sunday afternoon, when
    Ravi Shankar played. The place was the same, but the vibrations were entirely different. Ravi held the
    attention of ten thousand people, for four hours or more. Throughout one entire raga, he asked that
    no one smoke, and that photographers cease taking pictures. The horde of photographers stopped
    their labor, and the only smoke was that of incense. I thought I saw a
    Beatle, when Ravi was playing,
    but he was dressed like a hippie, and you can never be sure.
    That evening, the Blues Project
    played so elegantly that they seemed like a modern string and percussion quintet. Later in the
    evening, an aggregation called
    THE WHO played. It was after PICTURES OF LILLY, that, as Brian
    Jones
    predicted, they broke everyone up, in more ways than one. I hear they go through three
    guitars on a slow week. They were followed by
    the Grateful Dead, who were beautiful, and who
    were followed by
    the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Jimi did a beautiful Spade routine, and he
    finished by chewing, burning, and balling his guitar. Jimi socked it to them and they went
    home
    , but the Festival was not yet over. Everybody that played there, played for expenses, and the
    proceeds are slated for charity. The Board of Directors asked the San Francisco Diggers if they
    wanted any of the money. They got a rather sharp refusal and retort, which went something like, “If
    you want to help Diggers out, you’d let people in the concerts for nothing.” As of right now, the
    money has not yet found a home. They have plenty of it, and I hope Donovan, Paul, Smokey, and the
    others on the Board of Directors find a good place for it. The Pop Festival was a well-coordinated
    fusion of many diverse forces. That it went off smoothly, says a lot for all involved, especially the
    Hippies, who have a habit of taking care of their own. A lot of straight people were turned on to what
    is happening in music right now, and they liked it. There was a lot of quality in the performances
    here, and a lot of Good Karma everywhere.

    MIAMI HERALD (page?) ‘Step Back Stage With the Monkees’ by Nancy Beth Jackson
    (Herald Staff Writer)

    Why didn't the Monkees give local press interviews in Miami last weekend?
    "We're mutes," explained Peter Tork before Sunday's concert in the Miami Beach Convention Hall.
    "Besides, we don't need interviews. That's us on stage."

    He might have said more, the talk coming as easy as it was, but a publicity girl ran up with a glare
    and a roar.

    "No interviews. No interviews. You have to leave," she snarled.
    When asked why the Monkees weren't giving interviews, she had a different answer.
    They were tired. They were still on London time after concerts and that three-day filming sequence in
    Paris. They couldn't be bothered before the show. They couldn't be bothered after. Their show,
    according to her would run twice the length of the average per
    former's. That would have to do for
    Miami fans.

    Natural Makeup And Long Hair
    [B&W photo, ‘Monkees Ham It Up. With Deejay ... Mike Nesmith, left, Davey Jones, Rlck Shaw, Peter
    Tork, Micky Dolenz.’]

    THE BOYS THEMSELVES seemed up for the appearance. Dressed in neat business suits, they were set
    apart immediately from the accompanying acts in cowboy
    hats, African furs, clown collars and bright
    purple pants under red taffeta coats. They wore natural looking stage makeup and long hair.

    They arrived backstage minutes before the first half of the show ended. Mike Nesmith stood center
    stage behind the curtains giving the place a once over. Then he began talking to the disk jockeys and
    other performers in the narrow corridor behind the curtains and wall that was called backstage.

    While the anudience broke for cokes, the Monkees and the WQAM dejays moved to the south west of
    the convention hall to a roomy area, behind the curtains and next to the stage door where they posed
    for pictures.

    "Ah so honorable disk jockeys," Davey Jones mugged, playing the Chinaman bit.
    They weren't still a minute when a camera pointed their way.
    "Go home to your mothers. You don't want to be here in all this carnage," Mickey "Circus Boy"
    Jaggard yelled to the unseen, but not un
    heard, audience out front.
    Davey followed the same line, hamming it up telling the kids out front to be quiet
    The Monkee four had had a rough day. It went like this: Fly into town in the middle of the night after
    a Jackson
    ville concert. Get to bed by 5 a.m. Turn up at WQAM by 1 p.m. for some promotional
    recordings. Listen to teeny
    -boppers outside their Miami Beach hotel. Ready to go on stage by 9:30 p.m.
    before a squealing audience.

    Can They Sing? —Who Knows?
    RUMORS LAST FALL suggested the Monkees couldn't make personal appearance[s] because they
    were just personality boys working hard on their music lessons while someone else handled the
    sound.

    So how do they sound in person? Who knows?
    On the convention hall stage, they couldn't be heard for the cheering. Nearly every youth in the
    audience was standing on his seat. Some adults, too, to see if nothing else.

    Policemen were all over the place beginning with the 10-to 15-foot corridor roped off around the
    raided stage like a no-man's land between enemy countries. But this no-man's land was filled with
    uni
    formed policemen sitting about five feet apart.
    Nobody was allowed backstage without a special badge one frizzy hair performer said. A WQAM tiger
    yellow jacket, however, would do.

    The Monkee management looks almost scared to let one of the group, open a mouth although the
    boys appear to be anything but mutes, real or intellectual.

    The Monkees appear to be wind-up toys of the management who created the group. Management
    mutes. But how long do mutes last in show business?

    ‘T
    he 'Driving, Frantic' Monkees Swing Into Forest Hills Festival’ by Murray Schumach
    Despite the huge success of the Monkees, there has been a decided reluctance to put the rock ‘n’ roll
    quartet on public display live. For this Hollywood-created im
    mitation of the Beatles was a pure
    synthetic. On their television series and their records, their voices on their performances on drums
    guitars, banjos or anything else, have been dubbed. Sometimes almost everything on a record is the
    work of others, apart from engineering gimmickry, to attain what one of their en
    tourage called "a
    driving, ex
    citing, frantic young sound," and what another labeled "up-beat in lyrical contact."
    This weekend, after trial runs outside New York, the four young men were finally un-veiled here, on
    the stage of the Forest Hills Stadium, as part of this year's 1967 music fes
    tival arranged by Leonard
    Ruskin.

    The setting on Saturday night was almost perfect The rain had stopped and almost all of the 14,000
    seats were filled, mainly with girls in their early teens. A half moon rose in the twilight, giving a
    romantic touch to the audience's adora
    tion, expressed in hanging bedsheets painted with such slogans
    as "Monkee Power" and "We Love the Monkees."

    Ear-Shattering Adulation
    As it turned out, no one profiting from the millions being brought in on television, radio, gadgets and
    costume manufac
    ture, need have worried about the investment in the Monkees. The audience
    protected them beautifully.

    From the moment the four personable young men bounced out on the stage at 9:15, until they left an
    hour later, amid a psychedelic display on a screen and swinging giant spotlights on the audience, a shrill,
    ear
    -shattering stream of adulation pierced the air.
    The Monkees wore a variety of suits, shirts and shoes, and they had enormous energy as they jumped
    up and down like human pogo sticks or threw themselves in amusing dance steps that allowed their
    collar length hair to flap like wings One could also see them put
    ting fingers to guitar or banjo, sticks
    to drums or mouth to mike. There was an unquestionable strong rock beat that vibrated steadily
    through the stadium and periodic sounds that were identifiable as country music.

    All of this was complicated by an impulsive electronic system. In fact, in one of the few lulls, when the
    audience stopped for breath, a voice presumably belonging to one of the Monkees, was heard to say
    "a little bit of sabotage.' And shortly after that all four of the Monkees—Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz, Davy
    Jones and Mike Nesmith—went into a prolonged period of tuning up while some other people, tinkered
    with machinery on stage

    Audience Undeterred
    None of this bothered the audience. It shrilled steadily and piercingly. At the same time, what seemed
    like thousands of flash bulbs kept popping.

    The Monkees spoofed the audience, taking pictures of one another in weird poses waving, jumping and
    feign
    ing screams of ecstasy. Periodically, while the Monkees went through the motions of singing and
    playing, color photos of them were thrown on the screen over the stage showing them in closeup or
    dis
    porting at the beach or in their television shows.
    This, of course, only made the bedlam more intense. At one point a few other musicians were used.
    This seemed to make no difference.

    One mystery was solved toward the end. Frequently during the performance, sounds that resembled
    the lowing of a sick cow hovered over the stadium. This turned out to be one of those horns often
    heard at Shea Stadium during base
    ball games. It didn't seem to hurt the musical evening. In fact, it
    was soothing, a sort of poultice for the eardrums.”

    Monkees Shine At Miami Concert’ by Linda Huddleston, Sarah Gurtis, And Mary Anne Gillis
    Ten Thousand people in the fo
    rm of mini-skirts, mod shirts, and frustrated parents poured into the Miami
    Beach Auditorium for the Monkees’ concert presented on July 9.
    Scheduled for 8:30 the show began
    promptly, opening with the Sundowners, an American group, who have a good polished act.

    The Sundowners were followed by Lynne Randall, a pretty 17-year-old, who is Australia’s no. One pop
    singer. She communicated well with the audience.

    Next on the agenda were the Jimi Hendrix Experience, a group from England. Their performance
    was psychedelic to say the least, and was highlighted by
    Hendrix playing his guitar with his teeth.
    sychophantic
    entrance of the Monkees, in conservative black suits, sparked screams and shrieks of delight from the
    teens while undaunted parents craned their ne
    cks to get a glimpse of the “fab” four.
    After a few of the expected Monkee-shines, they plunged into “Last Train To Clarksville,” barely audible
    above the din. They continued with their biggest hit, “I’m A Believer.”

    The concert proceeded with the help of psychedelic lights alternated with color still and motion
    pictures from their television series which were projected on an overhead screen, adding to the
    excitement of the audience.

    Solos aptly displayed the individual talents of Mike Nesmith, David Jones, Micky Dolenz and Peter
    Tork.

    Together again on stage they sang a few songs from their new album and finished with “Steppin’
    Stone.” Throughout the entire concert the Miami Beach Police Department was on hand to control
    the swarming teenagers but as it turned out the crowd was cooperative and orderly.

    LUBBOCK AVALANCHE JOURNAL ‘Latest London Horrifies Old Timers’ by JOAN DEPPA
    LONDON (UPI) [no cartoon. Article below with cartoon is slightly more complete]
    22-7-67 LINCOLN EVENING JOURNAL (NE) (page 6)[crap B&W cartoon of a freckled freak with
    wired hair]

    ‘And Now, Direct from Merry Old Mod Town A Hairy Scene . . . The Anti-Hairdo Hairdo’ by Joan Deppa
    UPI LONDON—The latest London look for men takes nothing more than a strong comb.

    British youths by the score are backcombing their locks into a frenzied frizzle that sticks straight out
    in every direction.

    "IT LOOKS LIKE they've just had an electric shock," was how one observer aptly described it.
    The new anti-hairdo hairdo was pioneered by such pop groups as the Jimi Hendrix Experience
    and the Cream. Their fans followed suit as fast as they could find their combs.

    The reason, for its instant success is simple: It's easy to do. it's as fantastic as the current crop of
    male fashions and—most important—it horrifies adults.

    The exact effect varies with the Individual.
    Jimi Hendrix, an American Negro singer and musician whose ear-splitting psychedelic songs have
    made him one of Britain's hottest pop properties, has a thick mop that would defy any female who
    wanted to run her fingers through it. But teenage girl fans are dying to try.

    One of the Cream, Beatle manager Brian Epstein's new psychedelic group, accents his bushy
    coiffure with an equally bushy beard—all bright red.

    Others tease their less curly locks into a bouffant style reminiscent of Beethoven's famous mane.
    FOR ANY YOUTH who doesn't want to go through the trials and tribulations of a teased hairstyle—any
    woman who ever tried a beehive hairstyle will remember them all to well—there is another alternative.

    A bright young London wigmaker has made up a whole range of wigs for men that ape the hairstyles
    of the latest pop stars. Including
    Hendrix's wild and woolly look.
    The cost ranges from eight pounds ($22.40) on up, but that's cheap considering the amount of money
    being spent try Englishmen on hair care nowadays.

    With the exception of the young trend followers who are backcombing their hair every which way,
    greater attention is being paid to individual hair styling than for centuries.

    Many proper Englishmen have now deserted their barbers, whom they always referred to as men's
    hairdress
    ers, for the well-trained scissors of London's leading hair-dressing salons for women.
    LEONARD'S, an exclusive women's salon in the exclusive Mayfair section of London, has three cubicles
    set aside for male customers.

    One London barber, or rather men's hairdresser, puzzled by a continuing decline in young customers,
    decided that all of them couldn't be getting their hair clipped at such high-fashion establishments. So
    he went out in the street and questioned 500 unmarried at random.

    The result: 45 per cent of them said they would rather have their girt friends cut their hair than go to
    a barber.

    Which may provide another reason why backcombing has become so popular—as every woman who's
    ever had a bad haircut knows, it hides a multitude of scissor-made mistakes.

    ‘An American
    ExperienceMichael Wale reports from New York
    THE Jimi Hendrix Experience came to New York with poor billing and nobody knowing who they
    were. They left to re
    cognition. Two nights at Steve Paul's Scene Club and another in Central Park
    playing to an audience of 18,000 were all they needed.

    Now they're on a seven-week tour of America with the Monkees, but because of their success here
    they'll be returning to New York for a whole week before they finally jet home to Britain.

    New York, the Village apart, is still pretty intolerant of long hair and multi-coloured clothes. The
    Hendrix hairstyle stopped them in the streets. Jimi didn't seem to mind taking it all quite coolly but
    drummer
    John Mitchell gave a few words back here and there.
    SHORTS
    "It's ridiculous people standing laughing at us at New York airport when they were dressed in ill-fitting
    Bermuda shorts,"
    he said. " If they knew how stupid they look they wouldn't stare at us so much."
    One hotel refused the group accommodation but Loew's Motor Inn on Eighth Avenue treatedthem
    well enough and it was only just round the corner from the Scene.

    They really captured that place with Experience treatment of tunes like "Satisfaction" and "Wild
    Thing
    ." Talking of Wild Thing I saw a group of rather dejected Troggs on their way at the airport.
    The difference in hours, five between New York and London, all adds up to tire British groups out.

    STRINGS
    Back at the Scene Hendrix broke several of his guitar strings on the second night while he was
    playing the instrument with his teeth, which caused road manager
    Gerry to run on stage like a
    football trainer with a new string every time there was a breakage. At a reckoning they got through
    seven that night.

    They were billed smaller than the Seeds, an American group. But they soon showed that British
    groups are still best and America is very ready to hear them.

    Also on the bill at the Scene was a guy called Tiny Tim. He has hair down to his shoulders like a curly
    Barry Fantoni and sings old music hall songs to a uke. Every
    time the audience bursts into applause
    Tiny Tim puts his fingers to his lips and says: ' Why, thank you, thank you."

    Mitch and Noel were so impressed that they want to bring him to England. The Who were also in
    town and
    Pete Townshend was another confessed fan of Tiny Tim.
    The Experience played at the Rheingold Festival in Central Park co-billed with the Young Rascals who
    are pretty big out here. Admis
    sion is 7s 6d and 18,000 turned up. But it was the Experience who
    won the night while the Young Rascals were actually booed during one number.

    Off duty, Mitch spent his time trying to hear Gene Krupa play in a bar uptown and Miles Davis and
    Dizzy Gillespie in the village. Jimi and Noel went down to the village to see the Mothers of Invention
    at the Garrick.

    Outside Noel was stopped by two American girls who said. "Hey we saw you at your Finsbury Park
    Empire
    [sic, ‘Astoria’] in London." Passers by crowded round because they seemed to think the
    Finsbury Park Empire was Buckingham Palace. Still things are like that here in the city of few mini-
    skirts and white button-down shirts.

    Chas Chandlerput the group into a studio for a day while they are here and hopes he's got their
    next single
    [BOTML/STPWLSD]. Meanwhile the Experience look like becoming more popular in the
    States than the
    Procul Harumwho's record hasn't caught in New York.

    With the first Jimi Hendrix album, the semi-promise of ‘Hey Joe’ and ‘Purple Haze’ was not borne
    out or fulfilled. On the contrary,
    Hendrix and his pack have stunned me by making the most obsolete
    fiasco of our time. It is the least progressive, most over
    rated and nightmarish LP in years. The whole
    approach is uninspired, their
    Dylan-imitating lyrics nothing but amateurish and Jimi’s singing sounds
    like a distorted transistor radio. Those who think there is magic in
    Jimi’s teeth . . . come on, let’s
    deprive him of his undeserved throne.”—

    GO (page 8) ‘ON TOUR WITH THE MONKEES’ From Our Special Correspondent On The Monkees
    Tour Eden Roc Hotel, Miami, Sunday
    How do the Monkees relax? Well, after their show at the Convention Hall here this evening, they all
    went downstairs at the hotel to see
    Anthony and The Imperials perform.
    All four boys said they enjoyed the" show, but I dont think they enjoyed watching someone else
    perform as much as they enjoy themselves when they are onstage.

    So far, the tour has been nothing but fun. It began last night in Jacksonville, and the audience
    reaction was fantastic. It was one long scream after another all the time the boys were onstage.

    They perform for more than an hour during the show, and sing most of their hit numbers, including
    "Shades Of Gray", "Auntie Griselda" and "Last Train To Clarksville". -

    They also do a solo number each, and that really brings the house down*
    The most amusing thing on both nights so far has been the audience reaction to the Jimi
    Hendrix Experience
    . When the group walks out onstage, there's a concerted gasp of
    surprise.

    Reason for this, of course, is because the group is certainly rather unusual as far as
    appearance is concerned. All three boys wear very wild English clothes, and have hair
    styles which can be described only as staggering.

    However, within a very few moments, their performance has the audience on their side.
    And by the end of their act, the cheers are coming loud and long.
    Nothing is too good for everyone connected with the tour. In each city we visit, the best available
    accommodation has been reserved. The Eden Roc is certainly beautiful.

    We are traveling, of course, by our private "Monkee" plane. The interior is luxuriously appointed, and
    the word "Monkees" is emblazoned in huge letters along the outside of the fuselage.

    We even have a Monkee air hostess to look after us. She wears a cute mini-skirted outfit and a saucy
    little hat.

    The captain of the plane gave us all our biggest laugh so far.
    Shortly before leaving Jacksonville, a party had been arranged, and Mickey Dolenz decided to play a
    joke on everyone with the captain's help.

    We were all sitting in our seats on the plane, waiting for the takeoff, when the captain suddenly
    staggered into the passenger compartment.

    His tie was loosened, his capstuck on at a jaunty angle, and he was singing and waving a champagne
    bottle.

    There was near panic for a moment, then Mickey and the captain burst into peals of laughter, and we
    realized we'd been fooled.

    Tomorrow we leave here for Charlotte, North Carolina. It seems a pity to be leaving this beautiful spot,
    but we know there's lota more fun ahead.

    Make sure you get GO next week to real our next instalment of all the fan and frolics as the Monkees
    sweep across America.

    'Jimi's Experience Living On Our Pipes Further More News About Trio Groups'
    With JIMI and its EXPERIENCE it goes very well indeed. They have just finished an American tour
    with the MONKEES (jamming on the plane every night) and are busy with recordings in Los Angeles
    under the direction of producer / ex-
    Animal CHAS CHANDLER. The A-side of the next single is called
    '
    The Burning of the Midnight Lamp' and will be released on July 25th.
    That was JIMI. As is known, JIMI often played with the other three-man group, the CREAM, when he
    first arrived in England.

    There is known ex-Yardbirds / ex-Bluesbreakers lead guitarist ERIC CLAPTON. After the CREAM
    and
    JIMI, ex-Yardbirds lead guitarist JEFF BECK has also tried it with this formula, but later he
    made a quartet of it, which included ex-
    Bluesbreakers drummer AINSLEY DUNBAR. He is doing
    very well with this group, better than any mar to striking plates they have not yet brought. At the
    Benelux front we are well represented with ADAM'S RECITAL, a group that has an incredible amount.
    Note the records that the company will record in Paris for
    Barclay.
    The last three-man news comes from London again. There ex-Bluesbreakers lead guitarist PETER
    GREEN
    together with ex-Bluesbreakers drummer MICK FLEETWOOD (one big clique, if you think
    about it, those
    Yardbirds and Bluesbreakbirds) and bottle-neck guitarist, vibraphonist and pianist
    GERRY SPENCE founded the FLEETWOOD MACK. The group will make its debut at the Windsor Jazz
    Festival, where, among other things. Yes, indeed,
    the CREAM, JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE[not!]
    and
    JOHN MAYALL'S BLUESBREAKERS will perform. That will therefore become a kind of riot.

    Pop Festival
    Grosses High
    The First International Pop Festival has pulled in almost $500,000. according to Lou Adler. one of the
    main planners of the event. The bulk of this figure came from the television rights purchased by ABC.

    All the performers, which in-cluded the Mamas and Papas, the Animals, Otis Redding, and the
    Association, worked free, and the proceeds are supposed to go to-ward some non-profit causes,
    although Adler was not specific on this point.

    John Phillips, a member of the Mamas and Papas and another head of the Festival, has said that
    plans are now in the offing to take the Festival to either New York. London, or Stockholm next year.
    Phillips explained that he wasn't slighting Monterey, but wanted to “attract an even wider international
    representation.” Adler told
    The Beat however that he had no idea where the festival is headed.
    "Where the money is going and the future of the Festi
    -val, will be ironed out in a board meeting
    we're going to have in a couple of weeks." he said.

    The latest hair fantasy the frizzled-up look, both for girls and boys - it’s achieved by a perm (even
    two perms, one after another) or less permanently by a wig. Once called Martian, then cultivated and
    named for
    Jimi Hendrix and now picked up by the wilder pop groups, associates of English Boy
    model agency and peace-loving flower people, who stick flowers in their hair, too.

    Staider girls keep their hair very long or very short. Lots of hairpieces and wigs are sold for
    transformation scenes, but worn consistently only by the rich with expert hairdressers in tow.

    Ribbons are back (girls only, so far), tying up nostalgic bunches or Alice in Wonderland locks.
    And we overheard theis at Leonard’s, where the Sybilla set get their hair done.

    Jimi Hendrix has been pulled out of the Monkees American tour after two weeks – by the Daughters

    of the young, decided that
    Hendrix’s act was “too erotic” for the young Monkees fans, and campaigned
    for the groups withdrawal,

    U.S. Senators and Marshals were petitioned, and eventually Jimi left the tour at Forrest Hills last
    weekend. Group has returned to New York where it has been inundated with offers.

    Release date of Jimi’s new British single, "The Burning Of The Midnight Lamp”, recorded in New
    York, has been brought forward to August 15, “to catch the last of the pirates.”

    MELODY MAKER (cover) [small B&W photo, grinning, ‘HENDRIX: QUIT’]
    HENDRIX IN US TOUR BAN’ ‘Too Erotic’ For Fans’
    Jimi Hendrix and the Experience have been asked to leave an American tour with the Monkees after
    protests by the Daughters Of The American Revolution, that
    Hendix is “too erotic”.
    A London spokesman for Hendrix said on Monday: Hendrix has been barred from the tour and he
    quit last weekend. The Daughters Of The American Revolution decided his act was too erotic for the
    seven to twelve year-old audiences attracted by the Monkees."

    The tour opened on July 7 and was due to go on with Jimi until August 20. Hendrix, who is American
    and formed the
    Experience in England, is now working with Mitch Mitchell (drums) and Noel
    Redding
    (bass) at the Whiskey A Go Go in Greenwich Village, and has several offers from other
    clubs.

    He returns on August 25. His next single, titled "The Burning Of The Midnight Lamp," written by
    Jimi and recorded in New York will be released on August 18.
    A British “happening" tour featuring Jimi, plus light shows [light show didn’t happen until Feb. ‘68
    tour, ‘Mark Boyle’s Sensual Laboratory’]
    and psychedelic groups [ie Pink Floyd & the Move] is
    planned for later in the year

    ABOUTJimi Hendrix—he's a fantastic showman and I was knocked out when I saw him locally. I
    enjoyed his for-ward rolls on stage while still belting his music out. But I’d like to point out to his fans
    that I don't think he really plays guitar with his teeth. I have a group, the "Sisters of Idle Dreams" and
    we are one of hundreds with a guitarist who is on the
    Hendrix, Clapton kick. We think Hendrix just
    turns his amplifier up full blast and puts the guitar over his face and doesn't touch it with his teeth . . .
    he just plays by moving his fingers over the fretboard and, because he is very loud, gets a sound
    without using two hands. He's still great though.—John "Megs" Medley, 14 Waldshouse Road, Nelson,

    ‘Jimi labelled ‘too erotic’ by U.S. mothers’
    Jimi Hendrixhas pulled out of the Monkees tour of the States. The official reason is because a
    protest by The Daughters Of The American Revolution, who are a Mothers-guild type group of
    American ladies. The Daughters complained that
    Jimi’s performance was too erotic for young
    children. They say the average age of the Monkees audience is between 7 and 12.

    Jimireturns to Great Britain on August 20 to plug his new single, which was recorded in the States.
    The title is “
    The Burning Of The Midnight Lamp” and was written by Jimi.

    [LP The Cake (Decca DL 4927)]
    Cher stopped by and asked to sing backup at the session. . . Jimi Hendrix said he just had to play
    guitar for some of the tracks . . . Jessie Hill played piano for the r&b numbers ... a musical happening?
    No, just
    The Cake's first recording session.
    The Cake are a new group — and they are the first girls' group that has ever offered The Rolling
    Stones
    competition! Writing much of their own material, they have the capacity to become big.
    It all started when Charlie Greene and Brian Stone were at the Ondine nightspot in New York.
    The young producers, who have started such stars as Sonny and Cher and The Buffalo Springfield on
    their way, saw a couple of girls dancing and singing along to a Marvin Gaye record.

    'We heard them and they had fabulous voices," Charlie told GO.
    "So we asked if they were in a group and they said they were. They also said they wrote their own
    material.

    "We had them practice some old r&b material for the next few days and they were a gas, so we signed
    them and brought them to the West Coast.

    "They went right into their first session and really recorded a great album."
    The album contains three kinds of material. One side is split between old Crystal type material and The
    Cake
    's own songs, while the other side is solid r&b.
    The girls are delighted with the way things are turning out and are already songs for their second
    album.

    Brian said: "We are really excited by this whole project."
    (Page 8) From Our Special Correspondent On The Monkees Tour, Warwick Hotel, New York, Sunday.
    ‘ON TOUR WITH THE MONKEES’:

    New York has been the wildest place the Monkees have played yet. Things started out at a fever pitch
    when the boys arrived at The Warwick Hotel.

    There were hundreds of fans all over the street and we just barely made it into the hotel.
    The fans were there day and night and we had to get used to the uproar before we could get to sleep.
    We arrived on Thursday and late Thursday night the boys snuck out of the hotel to go to an exclusive
    French restaurant on the East Side and then to a rock club in Greenwich Village.

    We didn't get back to the hotel until very late and it was Friday afternoon before anyone was up and
    about.

    It started to rain late Friday and we were afraid that, the concerts would have to be post-poned.
    Fortunately by Friday evening the weather had cleared up enough so we knew that the show would go
    on...

    SCREAMS
    The boys arrived at Forest Hills about fifteen-minutes before they went on. Precautions had been taken
    to ensure all the amps were grounded so there would be no accidents.

    To the screams of 5,000 fans the boys went on and gave a very good show. Just as things show. Just as
    things began to get out of hand and

    people started to rush the stage they finished their number and quickly left the stadium by car.
    After the show everyone was pretty tired and we returned to the hotel. The Saturday night show was
    again threatened by rain but everything went all right.

    After the second show Davy Jones decided to go out to visit some of the places he had been a regular
    at when he played in "Oliver".

    This included dropping by Steve Paul's Scene at about 2 o'clock Sunday morning for a short chat with
    Steve and other friends.

    GAS
    The Sunday night the concert was a gas also and everyone relaxed a little on stage and had a good
    time.
    Jimi Hendrix really wowed the crowd with his guitar work and he looks like he'll be picking up a lot
    of fans as the tour progresses.

    Everyone felt really bad about leaving New York as we all had a lot of fun. Both Davy
    and Peter enjoyed being "home" for a while and had a chance to say hello to many old friends.
    Peter even got a chance to get down to the Village to buy some clothes and he'll be wearing them later
    on in the tour.

    Mike summed it all up when he said that he was very impressed with just how enthusiastic and loyal
    all the New York Monkee fans were by braving the possibility of getting soaking wet to fill the sta
    dium
    three nights running.

    (Page?) [B&W photo of Noel & Mitch outside barbers shop] ‘The Doug Thompson Report’:
    Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding, of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, receive an "estimate” from an
    eager trio of New York barbers.

    No matter how hard they try, the members of the Jimi Hendrix Experience just can't seem to keep
    out of the news. This time it's
    Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell who have been getting involved.
    They were making the rounds of the male boutiques in New York, looking for clothes, when they
    passed a barber shop,

    All five barbers inside were so amazed at what was passing by that they dashed outside to see the
    boys' weird hairstyles.

    Mitch went along with the fun of the thing, by asking them for an estimate.

    (Page 7) - HENDRIX - DID HE QUIT OR WAS HE PUSHED?

    “With the Monkees extensive USA tour only seven concerts old, the Jimi Hendrix Experience is out
    of the package! Conflicting reports from America have suggested either that
    Jimi stormed out of the
    show because he resented having to open the bill – or alternatively, that he was sacked due to
    protests from the powerful Daughters of the American Revolution women’s league about his act being
    ‘too erotic.’ In an exclusive phone call from Nassau in the Bahamas, co-manager
    Chas Chandler
    revealed that
    Jimileft ‘by mutual agreement with the Monkees,’ after being asked to tone down his
    act and is refusing to do so.
    Hendrix is remaining in the States until August 20 playing club dates –
    he is currently at the Whisky-A-Go Go in New York’s Greenwich Village.”


    Chandler told the NME: "There had been many pro-tests and a lot of parents were up in arms because
    the audiences which the Monkees draw are primarily in the 7-12 age group. So they moved
    Jimi to
    the opening spot and asked him to cool his act. He felt he could not co-operate, as it was like asking
    him to play with one hand.


    "SoJimi talked it over with the Monkees and decided to quit. There is no problem about him getting
    work in the States. He has been offered plenty of dates follow
    ing his success at theMonterey
    Festival—and his '
    Wind Cries Mary' disc is now shooting up the American charts [NOT! Ed.]."

    Jimi's next single "Burning Ot The Midnight Lamp” was completed in New York last Thursday, after
    ses
    sions totalling 42 hours-as opposed to the six minutes which " Wind Cries Mary" took to record!
    The disc features
    Hendrix on electric harpsichord and a backing by Aretha Franklin's girl backing
    group
    Sweet Inspirations.

    The disc will be issued here by Track on August 25.
    The Monkees and Jimi Hendrix attended Chas Chandler's wedding to Lotta Lexon in
    New York’s Warwick Hotel at 4 a.m. last Saturday. The newlyweds flew to Nassau for a brief
    honeymoon. Said
    Chandler: The Monkees' attendance proves there is no ill-will between them and
    Jimi
    .

    Jimi HendrixQuits Monkee Tour’
    ‘Think Mickey Mouse has replaced me’


    Jimi Hendrix phoned the NME on Saturday with the sensational news that he had quit the
    Monkees’ American tour after only seven shows.
    The Hendrix Experience will remain in the US for
    at least two more weeks to complete their new single and undertake some further bookings on the
    West Coast.”


    Jimi: “Firstly they gave us the ‘death’ spot on the show - right before the Monkees were
    due on. The audience just screamed and yelled for the Monkees! Finally, they agreed to let
    us go on first and things were much better. We got screams and good reactions, and some
    kids even rushed the stage. But we were not getting any billing - all the posters on the
    show just screamed out - MONKEES! Then some parents who brought - their young kids
    complained that our act was vulgar. We decided it was just the wrong audience. I think
    they’re replacing me with Mickey Mouse!’.


    “There was no tension between us and the Monkees whatever. And all the rumours about
    being segregated on the plane were just nonsense. I got on well with both Mickey and
    Peter and we fooled around a lot together.


    “There was a fantastic girl singer on the tour – an Australian girl called Lynn Randell.
    She’s got a record out in Britain, so you may be hearing more of her.


    “In New York we all went out to see the Electric Circus club in the Village, which just
    completely blew my mind. There was a group called the Seeds playing there but they had
    all these funny little acts going on between things. One guy walked up on to the stage and
    stood there and growled for about five minutes, then he said ‘Thank you,’ and walked off!
    There was this guy who came on in a suit jacket and just rolled around on the floor for
    half-an-hour. Then these funny little guys came swinging by on ropes from the ceiling. I
    couldn’t believe it!


    “I’ve been reading those reports about my new single being the Burning Of The
    Midnight Lamp
    . Well it’s true that I have recorded a track with those words in the song,
    but I’m not sure that is going to be either the title or the single.


    “We had a great time in L.A. where Dave Crosby and a group called the Electric Flag
    came round to see us at the Whisky A Go Go. I love the West Coast, all those beautiful
    people.


    Chas (Chandler)and Mike(Jeffries)are making arrangements for an autumn tour of
    Britain when we get back—it would be great if we get some of those really groovy
    American groups from the West Coast on the show with us,”
    Jimi concluded.
