Davy Jones on Merv Griffin 1973
While Davy performed live shows throughout the early 70's, he released a number of 45's on the Bell Records label. His take on the Neil Sedaka tune, "Rainy Jane" had a respectable showing as a minor hit, but the remainder of his Bell singles went nowhere. Davy reprised his role as the Artful Dodger in the touring stage show, Oliver. He tried to stay in the public eye and made many TV appearances. He then released two 45's on the MGM label. In a surprising move, Davy appears on Merv Griffin and doesn't push any new single, but rather sings a song he'd never record; Gilbert O'Sullivan's "Alone Again, Naturally." Here's Davy. I can already hear you swooning!
