As it turned out, it wasn't until 1967, near the height of 'Monkeemania', that Challenge saw fit to actually release the single, cashing in on Micky's fame.
Though displaying a very similar feel to his Monkee's material, the double entendre aspects of the solo Dolenz song lyrics set this release apart just a bit from the somewhat more TV-friendly recordings.
