Tommy Boyce (урожденный Sidney Thomas Boyce, сентябрь 29, 1939 - Ноябрь 23, 1994) и Bobby Hart (урожденный Robert Luke Harshman, Февраль 18, 1939, Phoenix, Arizona) были плодовитым песенным дуэтом, известны своими песнями, которые они написали для The Monkees. Томми Бойс пользовался незначительным успехом у подростков как сольный исполнитель с композицией "I'll Remember Carol" в 62-м году, до того как он объединился с Бобби Хартом, чтобы создать хит из топ-10 "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite" и другие более или менее успешные композиции. «Австралийская антология» включала две соло-записи Бойса (включая этот хит), 18 записей Бойса и Харта (включая их совместные хиты) и 5 песен дуэта Дэви Джонса и Мики Доленца из Monkees. Записи Бойса-Харта здесь основные, особенно сделанные в манере «баблгам-поп» "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonite" и "The Countess". Слушатели, знакомые с творчеством Monkees, несомненно испытают дежа-вю: Бойс и Харт в очередной раз покажут, в какой степени они были вдохновителями группы. Даже заходы Monkees в поп-психоделию используются Бойсом и Хартом.

The definitive Boyce and Hart collection! Bobby Hart and Tommy Boyce were popmeisters who wrote songs for the early Phil Spector productions among many others, but perhaps their best known project was The Monkees! .Turned down for roles early in the auditions, they landed the perhaps more artistically satisfying and lucrative roles as writer/producers for the music content of the show. Indeed, it was their own band, The Candy Store Prophets, who ghosted for The Monkees on their early sessions, including all the early hits and successful album tracks. Efforts by other Screen Gems writers and producers, from Neil Sedaka to The Tokens, to usurp their roles and get in on the Monkees cash bonanza were rather discouraging to our heroes, the undignified scramble leading to The Monkees decision to play their own music, and leaving Boyce and Hart out in the cold...or so it seemed...as well as continuing to contribute songs, they took a sideways leap. Effectively, they had already had a couple of number one singles and a number one album, so a "solo" (or should that be "Duo") deal with A&M was a no brainer. Tommy and Bobby set forth on a career as bona fide Pop stars in their own right, starting with a major hit in "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight" and recording three albums and a number of singles of wonderful Monkees style California pop...and why not? They were there from day one - TV appearances, tours, the usual Pop star treadmill which they'd avoided by being backroom boys beckoned. Leaving a superpop legacy of brilliant songs, for this their FIRST CD collection. - cherryred.co.uk
