Nesmith, Michael / Monkees Related - And The Hits Just Keep On Comin' And The Hits Just Keep On Comin'
Pop New - LP LSP 4695 RCA
Sealed, Rare 1972 Gatefold Original. “In 1972, Michael Nesmith Had Released Four Albums For RCA Records That Didn't Sell Especially Well, And He Had Parted Ways With His Band, With Only Pedal Steel Guitarist Red Rhodes Interested In Working On Nesmith's Next Project. RCA Gave Nesmith A Limited Window Of Time To Make His Next Album For Them, So It Was Necessity Rather Than Design That Led Nesmith To Cut And The Hits Just Keep On Comin' With Just Himself On Acoustic Guitar And Rhodes On Pedal Steel. But The Results Were Truly Inspired; Nesmith And Rhodes Use The Album's Spare Instrumentation To Their Advantage, With The Performances Both Empathetic And Intimate, And Rhodes' Masterful Steel Gives These Songs A Graceful Resonance Few Full Bands Could Muster. While The Ten Songs Find Nesmith In One Of His More Introspective Phases, He Manages To Keep One Foot Planted Firmly In The Real World While The Other Traipses The Cosmos (Even The Trippiest Song Here, "The Candidate," Manages A Certain Tongue-In-Cheek Wit That Keeps It On Terra Firma, And "Keep On" Offers Neo-Hippie Philosophy Rooted In Good Ol' Texas Horse Sense). He Also Offers Up A Superb Folk-Styled Remake Of "Different Drum" That Has A Bluesy Lope Missing From Linda Ronstadt's Better-Known Version. And The Hits Just Keep On Comin' Is Modest In Approach But Very Satisfying In Execution, Practically Defining The Phrase "Happy Accident." Mark Deming, All Music Guide.... more details
 
Nesmith, Michael / Monkees Related - Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash
Pop Used - LP APL1-0614 RCA
Rare 1973 Gatefold Original. LP Appears Unplayed. Embossed Promo Stamp On Back Cover. “After Hitting A Groove With And The Hits Just Keep On Comin', Which Michael Nesmith Recorded With Just Pedal Steel Guitarist Red Rhodes For Accompaniment, Nesmith Beefed His Sound Up Again With A Full Band On Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash. But The Previous Album Seems To Have Reminded Nesmith About The Virtues Of Restraint, And While He Had A Six-Piece Band At His Disposal This Time Out, The Arrangements Are Tight And Efficient, Offering The Warmth And Immediacy Of His First National Band Sessions (And Sometimes Even Beating Them For Subtle, Understated Swing). Red Rhodes, As Always, Is The Star Soloist Here, But The Rest Of The Band Also Shines, In Particular The Guitars Of Jay Lacy And Dr. Robert Warford And The Solid Drumming Of Danny Lane. Nesmith Wrote One Of His Best And Purest Country Songs For This Set, "Winonah," And Offered Up A Solid Remake Of The Monkees Obscurity "Some Of Shelly's Blues," While Dipping Into Bluegrass For The Lovely Acoustic Medley "Back Porch And A Fruit Jar Full Of Iced Tea." Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash Was Michael Nesmith's Final Album For RCA Records, And If It Didn't Fare Especially Well In The Marketplace, From A Musical Standpoint He Certainly Left The House That Nipper Built On A High Note -- It Was Hardly Your Standard '70s Country-Rock Album.” Mark Deming, AMG.... more details
