Review: Micky Dolenz ‘Out Of Nowhere’

By Fred Velez

“Well, isn’t this cool?”, Micky Dolenz giggles after performing another live rendition of the Monkees first hit ‘Last Train To Clarksville’. The main difference in this performance is that Micky is backed by The American Metropole Orchestra. Taking place at the Rice Auditorium at Western Oregon University in Monmouth, Oregon on April 15th, 2017, this special concert under the title ‘Out Of Nowhere’, is the latest entry by 7a Records, continuing their incredible streak of high quality Monkees related releases. Executive producers Iain Lee and Glenn Gretlund managed to arrange for this special concert to be professionally recorded so that fans who were not fortunate enough to be able to attend can now enjoy it.

Dolenz is in great voice and the orchestral arrangements of Monkees’ classics like ‘Sometime In The Morning’, ‘D.W. Washburn’, ‘A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You’, ‘Daydream Believer’ and more gives the familiar Monkees tunes, with an orchestra backing them, a unique dimension. ‘Porpoise Song’ in particular shines from the full orchestra. Micky is obviously having a lot fun as is evident by his enthusiastic performance.

In addition to releasing the concert on cd, 7a Records has also issued ‘Out Of Nowhere’ as a beautiful, limited edition picture disc with wonderful photos of Micky Dolenz gracing both sides of the disc. The sleeve notes by Iain Lee gives added background on this special performance.

‘Out Of Nowhere’ by Micky Dolenz and The American Metropole Orchestra is a special and historic concert that should be owned, listened to and enjoyed by all Monkees fans.
