Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart

Along with being top-notch musicians, songwriters and producers, Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart were recording artists in their own right. Although best known as the duo behind many of the Monkees hits, including "Valleri" and "Last Train to Clarksville," the duo had a pretty successful recording career in the mid 1960s which coincided with their work on the Pre-Fab Four project.

They charted a number of singles, including "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite," which reached No. 8 in the winter of 1967. Their sound fit into the bubblegum mode, and their give and take vocals were a hallmark of their sound.

Sorry about the cut corner on the "Alice Long" single, but that is how I bought it. Cut corners were used to signify that a store had too many of a particular record on hand, and these were generally sold at a cut rate, which is probably how I got this. You normally would not have found this on singles, but I guess this one was overstocked.
