Thanks for sharing this, Iain Lee! Monkees in Australia, 1968.
This is great, previously unseen footage of the guys touring Australia. This comes from the collection of Suzanne Gee. Wonderful film of the guys onstage - bearded Peter and Michael’s famous Stars & Stripes jacket are two of the noteworthy rarities that can be seen.
The footage is dark, shaky, plays at the wrong speed and a little difficult to see at times, but I genuinely believe this is some of the most exciting Monkees footage out there.
The film presented to me was silent so I have dubbed an interview with Davy Jones on it from the Monkees Talk Down Under LP. I have also added a rare, lost Tema Dei Monkees mix which was discovered on an Italian compilation

From a 1977 TV Guide
Mike Nesmith imagines that audience members are juicy steaks to calm his stage fright, which has the unfortunate side effect of making him drool.
