I just saw this cd Not The Freeze by a group called Penny Arkade
at amazon.com. What drew my attention is that it is an album that was produced by Michael Nesmith. It was done in the mid 60's but I don't know if it was done right before the Monkees or during the Monkees. It was shelved and not released. However, Sundazed has now released it. Check it out at amazon to see what it looks like.
