Now that we finally have a full stereo version of this once lo-fi song (thanks to Rhino’s recent BIRDS, BEES, and MONKEES box set), what do I do? Send it back into lo-fi land. Sorta. I started with the stereo mix, isolated the horns in the right channel, ran that track thru some filters, added extra bass on that side, some echo effects during later portions of the song, etc... All in an effort to replicate 1920s music and radio listening. Some added instruments such as cymbals, drums, horns, bells, bass drum, slide whistles, and vibra-slap were added, in addition to the radio effects. Can you identify all the Monkees-related drops during the “radio tuning” segments?
