Packaging: LP

180g "Electric Blue" Vinyl version. Recorded at
McCabe's in Santa Monica, CA, on August 18th,
1973, "Cosmic Partners The McCabe's Tapes" is a
rare and previously unreleased concert recording
featuring Nesmith and a small coterie of fellow
musicians, including long time recording partner and
pedal steel player Red Rhodes. This recording is from
a mini concert tour that was in support of what was to
be Nesmith's final record on the RCA label, Pretty
Much Your Standard Ranch Stash. Consisting of a
rhythm section featuring Danny Lane on drums and
Colin Cameron on bass, and the legendary O.J. "Red"
Rhodes on pedal steel, this would be the last
performance of its kind and the beginning of an
almost Homeric journey for Nesmith. On the heels of
an inordinately successful Monkees TV show, the
hangover from overnight celebrity, and the
disappointments that so often follow such ascents,
this forgotten and almost lost board mix in all its
unvarnished glory (remastered here by Christian
Nesmith, Michael's oldest son) stands as a ready
witness to the spirit of a man full of heartache, a
performer bruised by the claws of the star-maker machine, and an artist whose songs have become
touchstones for our lives. What you hear is exactly as it happened with no overdubs or audio mumbo
jumbo. The perfection you hear is totally for real. Featuring liner notes by Michael Nesmith.
