In 1970, Mike Nesmith bought himself out of his contract with The Monkees. Following Peter Tork as the second of the quartet to strike out on his own, Nesmith was left with a wealth of industry connections. However, he was unsure of how to put them to use. He claimed, “I was in limbo” until finding a group that appeared to fulfill a destiny that began in the early 1960s.

By 1970, Nesmith appeared to have tired of portraying the straight man to Tork, Dolenz, and Jones on the television series and subsequent mandatory television advertisements.
