Action: Songs of Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart / Various [Import]
Friends since the late ’50s, Boyce and Hart made their breakthrough as a songwriting team in 1964 with Lazy Elsie Molly (a Top 40 hit for Chubby Checker) and Come a Little Bit Closer (a #3 record for Jay & the Americans). Those two gems are included on this 26-track compilation that opens with one of their own recordings, I Wonder What She’s Doing Tonight, and also features 9 of the best-known songs they penned for the Monkees, 3 performed by the band and 6 by other artists such as Del Shannon (She) and UK fuzz-beat combo the Flies (I’m Not Your Stepping Stone)!
