The Monkees

Star Collector

Song Review by

The final track on the Monkees, excellent Pieces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. album, "Star Collector is an excellent and pointed attack on groupies. Surely a subject near and dear to the Monkees' hearts, the group gives a rousing and comedic performance of the song, highlighted by Davy Jones' lead vocal. Another excellent (and trail-blazing) component in the song is the use of the Moog synthesizer, performed by neophyte programmer Mickey Dolenz. A wacky end to a great album.
