There was a time in the mid-70's when we almost had a full-on Monkees reunion.
Micky Dolenz & Davy Jones joined forces with songwriter buds Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart for a 1-shot album, "Dolenz, Jones, Boyce, & Hart", released on Capitol in 1976. The other Monkees, Mike Nesmith & Peter Tork, were invited, but declined. They, in turn, would record with another set of songwriters, the husband & wife team of Gerry Goffin & Carole King.
Around this time, Dolenz was doing mostly cartoon work at Hanna-Barbera (i.e. Funky Phantom, Devlin), but had "I Remember The Feeling" raced up the charts, things would've been looking up, 10 years after The Monkees.
The energy was there, but radio wasn't interested, it seems.
