7A Records are proud to announce the 50th Anniversary Edition of Michael Nesmith’s “Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash” album. Released on CD & Vinyl on April 7, the album includes a bonus track, extensive liner notes and session details by Andrew Sandoval, as well as lyrics to all of the songs.
Nesmith’s time with the Monkees was well and truly in the rear-view mirror and he needed a new place to live and work. He caught the ear of Jac Holzman, head of Elektra Records, and a path forward miraculously appeared. Realising that most of the record companies at the time didn’t understand Country Rock, Nesmith convinced Holzman to start a new label, Countryside. Nesmith would run the label, put together a ‘house band’ and produce albums by various up and coming country artists. Unfortunately, most of the new label’s releases didn’t make much of an impression and Nesmith soon started to contemplate his own music again. Aided by the power of his Countryside house band, he quickly crafted Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash, a full and final RCA album. Despite its commercial sheen, Ranch Stash wasn’t a success sales-wise and it became the closing remark to a heavy chapter in Nesmith’s life, a final “adios” to Monkee Mike, to the cosmic cowboy, and to his family, as he moved further on up the trail.
Included on our 50th Anniversary Edition is the 1973 alternate version of “Marie’s Theme”. The Vinyl version is in a gatefold sleeve and printed on 180g grey vinyl and includes extensive liner notes and session info by Andrew Sandoval.
