TV SPECIAL AIRED ON THIS DATE IN 1969

33  revolutions per monkee

"33⅓ Revolutions Per Monkee"
is the name of a rarely-seen TV special starring
The Monkees that aired on NBC. Produced by Jack Good, creator of the television 
series Shindig!, musical guests on the show included Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, 
and Little Richard in musical performances. Although they were billed as musical
guests, Julie Driscoll and Brian Auger, alongside their then-backing band The Trinity, found themselves playing a prominent role; in fact, it can be argued that the special focused more on the guest stars (specifically, Auger and Driscoll) than The Monkees themselves. This special is notable as The Monkees’ final performance as a quartet  
until 1986, as Peter Tork left the group at the end of the special’s production.
