Michael Nesmith: And The Hits Just Keep On Comin' & Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash (CD)

(Music On CD) 17 tracks

These two albums, his fifth and sixth, by the brilliant Michael Nesmith show why he remains a pioneer of the country rock genre.

Michael Nesmith was the guitarist for the legendary Monkees, and as a solo artist he developed into a brilliant songwriter and musician. This pared-down album was a musical dialogue between Nesmith (vocals and 12-string acoustic guitar) and Red Rhodes (pedal steel), a journey from his pre-Monkees songbook to the present.

For "Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash," Michael enlisted a seven-piece country band. It includes a new version of the Monkees song "Some Of Shelly's Blues" and Cindy Walker's "Born To Love You." Rolling Stone magazine called his material "the best music you've never heard."

Michael Nesmith

  Winonah

With this, Michael Nesmith's tenure with RCA came to its mutually agreed conclusion. There's simply no comprehending the extent of Nesmith's disappointment as he transitioned from mega-selling bubblegum to pioneering but miserably-selling country rock. His bubblegum audience evaporated (no surprise there) but he couldn't find a new one. There's no doubt that his first career stopped a lot of people from taking his second career seriously, but even now history shortchanges him. His name is always prefixed by 'ex-Monkee.'

 

Titled 'Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash,' Nesmith's RCA swansong was released in September 1973 and failed to even bubble under. RCA didn't go to the effort of pulling a single. The album's B-side comprised revivals of ancient songs, including FFV,recently revived by Townes Van Zandt. The A-side included a remake of one of Nesmith's big hits as a songwriter, Some Of Shelly's Blues,and three new songs, suggesting that his well was running dry. Winonahwas co-written with James Miner and up-and-coming country singer Linda Hargrove. After Leon Russell had recorded a couple of her songs for 'Hank Wilson Is Back,' Hargrove met Nashville session man/producer Pete Drake, who introduced her to Nesmith. In addition to writing this song with her, Nesmith signed her and his longtime steel guitarist to his new joint venture with Elektra, Countryside Records. Countryside was abandoned when Elektra's founder, Jac Holzman left. On one level, the lack of success didn't bother Nesmith. He'd stashed some of his Monkee money and in 1980 he inherited over twenty-five million dollars from his mother, who'd invented Liquid Paper. So he wasn't hurting - probably just smarting a little.
