Michael Nesmith / Magnetic South
RCA Records LSP-4371 (1970)(US) Original issue Record. "Magnetic South" made it clear Michael Nesmith had his own distinct way of bringing
country and rock together. Nesmith put together a top-flight band who sound at once relaxed and thoroughly committed. On this album he indulges
himself in a consciously poetic and philosophical lyrical style that's a bit more abstract than one would expect from a former Monkee.
The Record and Cover (in shrinkwrap with title sticker/promo cut in top right seam) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$25.00
Michael Nesmith / Loose Salute
RCA Records LSP-4415 (1970)(US) Original issue Record. Michael Nesmith took a slightly more eclectic approach on his second album "Loose Salute"
with the First National Band. While country flavors still dominate the album, the up-tempo numbers swing a bit harder. It's one of the strongest
records in his catalog as a solo artist. Nesmith also took over as producer, and he gets a tougher and tighter sound from the band.
The Record and Cover (in shrinkwrap with title sticker/promo cut in bottom right seam) are in excellent (Mint-) condition...$25.00
Michael Nesmith / Nevada Fighter
RCA Records LSP-4497 (1971)(US) Original issue Record. The First National Band were joined by a number of session musicians on "Nevada Fighter"
(including James Burton and Ronn Tutt from Elvis Presley's band). The arrangements have a different feel than on Nesmith's previous two albums.
The Record and Cover (softened/bent top left corner) are in nice (Very Good+ to Very Good++) condition...$15.00
Michael Nesmith / Tantamount To Treason
RCA Records LSP-4497 (1971)(US) Original issue Record. The most notable variation between "Tantamount To Treason" and "Nevada Fighter" lies
in the ethereal style in which Michael "Papa Nez" Nesmith delivers his earthy Southwestern-flavored lyrics and melodies. This is his first album
backed by the Second National Band. The Record and Cover (promo cut in bottom right seam) are in nice (Very Good++) condition...$15.00
Michael Nesmith / Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash (Promo)
RCA Records APL1-0164 (1973)(US) Original issue Record. Michael Nesmith beefed his sound up again with a full band on "Pretty Much Your Standard
Ranch Stash". Even though 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. The Record and Gatefold Cover (promo sticker on back) are in nice (Very Good+) condition...$15.00
Michael Nesmith / Compilation
Pacific Arts Records PAC 7-106 (1973)(US) Standard issue Record. This "Compilation" is a definitive collection of Michael Nesmith's classics.
It features such compositions as, "Some of Shelly's Blues", "Different Drum", "Joanne", "Silver Moon" plus eight more gems.
The Record and Cover are in nice (Very Good+ to Very Good++) condition...$10.00
Michael Nesmith / The Prison
(A Book with a Soundtrack)
Pacific Arts Records PAC 11-101A (1974re)(US) Standard reissue Record with book. "The Prison" is a brilliant multimedia concept marrying the
personal and inner visual experience of Michael Nesmith's novella with the aural medium of an equally original soundtrack. The short story is
presented in an LP-sized booklet with the music featured on the album. Book and vinyl look very nice. Cover shows some wear but has no split
seams or major wear. The Record and standard Cover from 1977 (with 48-page book) are in nice (Very Good+ to Very Good++) condition...$20.00
Michael Nesmith / From A Radio Engine To The Photon Wing
Pacific Arts Records PAC 7-107 (1977)(US) Standard issue Record. Michael Nesmith tastefully incorporates the beats of the 70's into his
otherwise country-flavored rockers. As always, the lyrical content is impeccable and at the very least intriguing. Nesmith re-entered the
charts with this album and the single "Rio" was a hit in the UK. His filmed version of the song helped develop the concept of music video.
The Record and Cover (in shrinkwrap) are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$20.00
Michael Nesmith / And The Hits Just Keep On Comin'
Pacific Arts Records PAC 7-116 (1972/1977)(US) Standard reissue Record. "And the Hits Just Keep on Comin'" is some what modest in approach
but very satisfying in execution, practically defining the phrase "happy accident." The results were truly inspired; with just Michael Nesmith
on acoustic guitar and Red Rhodes on pedal steel, they use the album's spare instrumentation to their advantage with the performances both
compassionate and warm. The Record and Cover (in shrinkwrap) are in great (Mint-) condition...$20.00
Michael Nesmith / Live At The Palais
Pacific Arts Records PAC 7-118 (1978)(US) Standard issue Record. A majority of the tracks here are compositions from one of Nesmith's most
fertile creative periods in the late '60s, just prior to leaving the Monkees. "Calico Girlfriend," "Propinquity," "Some of Shelly's Blues,"
"Crippled Lion," and "Listen to the Band" are all tunes Nesmith recorded as both a Monkee and solo artist. On "Live at Palais", Nesmith's
folk-tinged originals are replaced by electric and decidedly more emotive renderings.
The Record and Cover (in shrinkwrap with title sticker) are in great (Mint-) condition...$20.00
Michael Nesmith / Infinite Rider On The Big Dogma
Pacific Arts Records PAC 7-130 (1979)(US) Standard issue Record. The cryptically titled "Infinite Rider on the Big Dogma" was "Papa Nez"'s
ninth post-Monkees solo studio effort in as many years. The ten tracks here cover a lot of ground and Michael Nesmith's variety of styles
on the album aptly demonstrates his maturity as a composer. It is also a more accurate reflection of the versatility in his work.
The Record and Cover are in great (Very Good++ to Mint-) condition...$15.00
