▶ RARE TRACK: Neil Young Solo on The Monkees "You and I"



Here's something we never heard before.

Most are quite familiar with the story of Stephen Stills auditioning for the Monkees and being rejected (Stills claims he was only auditioning songs that might be selected for broadcast [link]). But now with this YouTube video of The Monkees - "You and I", Neil Young clearly had a The Monkees connection as well.

Neil's solo is very distinctive so we're pretty sure its him. This is from Instant Replay album version.

Thanks Ron!

21from the Monkees sessionography.
May 10, 1968

Wall Heider's, Hollywood

"Smile", "You And I", "That's What It's Like Lovin' You"

P: Davy Jones

This session featured former Buffalo Springfield member Neil Young on guitar. In fact, the Springfield had ridden on The Monkees' tour plane in 1967 for a time, and after they broke up, several of the members played on Monkees sessions. Steven Stills and Dewey Martin played on several of Peter's songs. "Smile" is Davy's only Monkees song written solely by himself, and it is a very respectable effort. It was not originally released and was also foolishly rejected from Changes. Thankfully, Rhino added it to their Instant Replay CD. Davy and Bill Chadwick later wrote new lyrics to this song and renamed it "How Can I Tell You". "You And I", cowritten by Davy and Bill Chadwick, is probably Davy's finest release. It was a highlight of Instant Replay. "That's What It's Like Lovin' You", a Jones/Pitts song, was probably recorded on this day as well. It has not been released.

Here's a performance of Smile with a very sweet video compilation. There's even a current mention of Neil on guitar in the Comments section. Very nice guitar work, and a good example of Neil's Yin and Yang (even back then) when compared with the TW video (thanks guys!):

Thanks for mentioning this song, Leigh! I saw Peter last year in a solo show and I'm pretty sure this was one of the songs he performed that night. Neil and The Monkees...what more can you say?

Thanks Leigh & Mr H!

Never realized there were so many connections with Buffalo Springfield and Monkees.

Funny how the connections just go deeper and deeper...

I thought Neil plays on a couple of Monkees songs? Neil Diamond does too.

Stills wanted to retain the copyright of his songs, that's why he didn't became a Monkee.
