About this release

As a member of the first-ever manufactured group, Michael Nesmith needs little introduction. Aside from his ground-breaking projects in the field of music video and film production, he has enjoyed a solo career since he left the Monkees that has encompassed many styles of music, but has always been supported by his wonderful songwriting.

The albums were originally released on Nesmith’s own Pacific Arts’ label in 1977, 1979 and 1992, and have been digitally remastered by Nesmith from the original multi-track tapes. The booklet features extensive and revealing annotation by Nez himself.

Amongst the many stand-out songs featured across the four albums are the Top 30 UK hit “Rio”, “Magic”, “Laugh Kills Lonesome” and fabulous live versions of “Different Drum, “Silver Moon”, “Papa Gene’s Blues”, “Propinquity”, “Some Of Shelly’s Blues” and “Joanne”. The five promo videos on the bonus DVD appeared in the Grammy™ Award-winning “Elephant Parts”, although the film for “Rio” was originally made to promote the UK single release.
