Thread Name: Origins: The Other Side (Bill Dorsey)
Subject: RE: Origins: The Other Side (Bill Dorsey)
I was looking for info on a set of Monkees bootlegs and found this thread. There are a number of demo recordings made by Bill Dorsey for the Monkees, including one credited as either 'I Am A Fish' or 'I Swim Around', but it has the exact lyrics above so it's actually 'The Other Side'. You can find these demos on some bootleg discs, sometimes listed as 'The Peter Tork Acetates' (they were discovered in his former home), but the quality is poor. Some of Dorsey's songs were recorded for the '33 1/3 Revolutions Per monkee' TV special in 1969, including 'Wind Up Man', 'A String For My Kite' and 'Goldilocks Sometime'.
