Michael Nesmith: Different Drum: The Lost RCA Victor Recordings (CD)

(Real Gone Music) 22 tracks with 24 page booklet

The composer of hits for Linda Ronstadt and the Stone Poneys -Michael Nesmith-was also the woolly-cap-wearing member of the Monkees, making him one of the earliest exponents of the country-rock sound. "The Lost RCA Victor Recordings" contains 22 tracks from the RCA Victor archives. All tracks have not been released in any physical format before.

They come from the six albums Nesmith recorded for RCA Victor from 1970 to 1973 under the aegis of Nashville legends Chet Atkins and Felton Jarvis - seminal country-rock albums with a spiritual quality unique to Nesmith's crack band.

J. "Red" Rhodes includes cosmic reinterpretations of Monkees favourites like "Tapioca Tundra", "Magnolia Simms", "Circle Sky" and "Listen to the Band" Unheard outtakes like "American Airman" and "Six Days on the Road" as well as completely different alternate takes of "Different Drum", "Dedicated Friend" and "Tengo Amore". Mixed from the original multitracks by Andrew Sandoval.

Mastered by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios in NYC. Also includes photos by legendary rock lensman Henry Diltz.

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. Winonah was 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.
