Michael Nesmith: Magnetic South (LP)

(2018/Sundazed)

Nesmith’s Country-Rock Cornerstone!

The heralded (true!) solo debut of Michael Nesmith! Magnetic South features the artist’s hybrid of cowboy-’n’-western country music and rock sensibilities, highlighted by Joanne, one of the earliest singles with the California-country sound to become a major hit record. With accompaniment by the First National Band - Nez’s best! In his solo debut as a recording artist, Michael Nesmith breaks ground with his First National Band on Magnetic South, waxing eleven country-rock classics.

Taped at RCA’s Hollywood Studios in February 1970 directly after his departure from The Monkees, the album thematically opens Nesmith’s First National American trilogy of blue, red and white albums (with a trademark needle point sleeve designed by none other than Dean Torrence).

Magnetic South is brimming with songs Nesmith stockpiled during The Monkees’ heyday and also includes the Top 40 hit single Joanne, with covers of One Rose and Beyond The Blue Horizon topping off this spirited and infectious long player. Issued in July 1970, Magnetic South was the first of two albums issued by The First National Band that year to critical accolades. Available again on blue vinyl from Sundazed, for the first time since the 1970’s.

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.
