Michael Nesmith: Nevada Fighter (LP)

(2018/Sundazed)

More Matchless Nez Music!
The third LP from a Nudie-suit wearing father of country-rock! Nevada Fighter completes a trilogy of LPs by Michael Nesmith and the First National Band, augmented by members of Elvis’ ‘70s touring band and other Wrecking Crew heroes.
 
Nevada Fighter - a hit single in 1971—is included, as is the definitive version of Nez’s signature song, Propinquity! The final installment in Michael Nesmith’s American Trilogy, Nevada Fighter chronicles not only our great nation, but the fragmentation of his First National Band. Recorded from August 1970 through January of 1971, the album augments the original band’s line-up (Red Rhodes, John London & John Ware – who had disbanded before release) with guest musicians such as James Burton, Ron Tutt, Joe Osborn & Glen D. Hardin.

The album revisits one of Nesmith’s earliest compositions Propinquity (I’ve Just Begun To Care), which was penned back in 1965 prior to Nesmith becoming a Monkee, ultimately producing Nesmith’s fourth and final post-Monkees chart hit. The album’s title track, Nevada Fighter was also a charting single in April 1971, reaching #70. The album’s first side is all Nesmith originals, while side two features covers of Harry Nilsson, Bob Wills, and others. Issued in May 1971, Nevada Fighter became another collectable that was never reissued in its original form. It is available again on white 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.
