Editors’ Notes

After leaving The Monkees, Michael Nesmith spent much of the '70s making cunningly quirky country-rock albums. In the '80s he mostly eschewed music-making for other interests, but when he released 1992's Tropical Campfires—his first album in 13 years—he embarked on a tour whose final date is captured here. The set offers an excellent overview of Nesmith's initial run as a solo artist and marks his last performance with a crucial collaborator, pedal steel guitarist Red Rhodes, who died two months later. Nesmith's often complex, poetic lyrics pretty much guaranteed he'd never achieve the mainstream success of his former band, but the subtle, supple beauty of '70s tunes like "Harmony Constant" and "The Upside of Goodbye" is a rarefied pleasure, especially in a live setting. Of course, a few of Nesmith's more accessible tunes were hits for others ("Different Drum" for Linda Ronstadt and "Some of Shelley's Blues" for The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band); those are here too, alongside some of the less rootsy, rather jazzier tunes that turned up on Tropical Campfires.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant At The Britt!!!!

I Can't How Understand Why Neil Young Gets So Much Credit He Doesn't Deserve. Michael Nesmith Is A Far Superior Musician And The True Father Of Country Rock Before Any Of Them. This Concert Just Proves How Much He Deserves And Doesn't Get. Thanks Papa Nez For All The Great Music And Memories.

Great recording and set!

As any Mike Nesmith fan knows, he doesn't have concerts very often. When he does, they are wonderful! This is a great recording of a great Nesmith concert. You also get to hear more of his wit and humor between songs! I love this album, you get most of the Nesmith favorites!

why cant you buy the album

The songs look and soung great but why can't I buy it as an album instead of individual songs.

The comparatively level-headed member of '60s teen sensation the Monkees, Michael Nesmith was the most proficient instrumentalist in the group and wrote their best in-house songs, rootsy pop numbers like "Papa Gene's Blues," "You Told Me," "You Just May Be the One," and "Tapioca Tundra." In fact, he had written many songs before even joining the group, and one of his compositions, "Different Drum," was a hit for Linda Ronstadt and the Stone Poneys in 1968. After he left the Monkees one year later,...
