Producers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider remembered him as "Wool Hat"; they wanted to name his Monkees character that, but Nesmith refused.
15 Had actually been "labelmates" with Davy Jones earlier, as both were signed to the Colpix Records label (Nesmith recorded as "Michael Blessing"), though they'd apparently never met. While Jones had released a modestly successful LP and single by 1965, Nesmith's two singles hadn't gotten far past the promotional stage.

That's somewhere . . . that door is coming up. I can't make it out on the horizon just yet. But at a certain point it's going to be time for me to say, "Eh, I think I'll lay down."
2 [on the death of fellow Monkee Davy Jones] David's spirit and soul live well in my heart, among all the lovely people, who remember with me the good times, and the healing times, that were created for so many, including us. I have fond memories. I wish him safe travels.
