Review: The Monkees soar on ‘Last Train To Clarksville’ live video (Includes first-hand account)

This smash single topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1966, and now they are giving listeners and fans a taste of their forthcoming live album, The Monkees Live — The Mike and Micky Show.

This live rendition of “Last Train to Clarksville” was recorded at a live concert back in March of 2019. It sounds just as good and relevant today and when they first released it over five decades. Compliments to acclaimed songwriters Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart for writing such a captivating tune. This is a substantial indication that good music will stand the test of time and that Boyce and Hart deserve to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

This live album will be released on hard copy and digital on April 3, and they will be released a two-LP vinyl on May 15. This collection is available for pre-order by clicking here. This collection is comprised of versions of the group’s most popular songs, as well as their rarities.
