The first of several Monkees EP releases. In the mid to late '60s, "Extended Play" 45s were still popular in many worldwide markets such as the UK and Australia, but they never really took off in the USA. They were useful compromises for people who either didn't want to buy a whole album, or couldn't readily afford to buy one (such as teenagers with limited purchasing power).
This EP, which was subtitled "(Theme From) The Monkees", actually made number one in the charts, and collects songs from the first side of the first, self-titled Monkees LP.
Of note on the record label writing credits is that "Goffin-King" is listed as King-Goffin".
