Rural Rock From 1970 California On Red Vinyl LP!

Michael Nesmith's sophomore solo release, Loose Salute, continues on the country-rock road of Magnetic South, rocking even harder in places, while adding a tinge of Latin rhythm. Taped from April through July of 1970, the album catches Nesmith in his transition from honky-tonk hitmaker to studio born perfectionist.

Featuring ten songs, Nesmith revisits songs from his days in The Monkees, explores proto-outlaw attitude, and the album opens with his second hit single, "Silver Moon" a winning and upbeat follow-up to "Joanne."

Loose Salute is notably the first fully-produced album by Michael Nesmith since his 1968 experimental instrumental project on Dot, The Wichita Train Whistle Sings. Released in October 1970, hot on the heels of their debut, Loose Salute earned a rave review from Rolling Stone (who called it, "one of the hippest country rock albums in some time, certainly the most listenable").

Never reissued in its original form, it is available again on Red Vinyl from Sundazed for the first time since the 1970's.

"...This trilogy from 1970-71 forms a magnificent whole...These LPs are stellar on every level: musicians of the highest order, including pedal steel maven Red Rhodes and pianist Glen D Hardin, and songs that deserve hit status: 'Joanne', 'Listen To the Band' and 'Silver Moon'. Even the few covers are inspired...So don't miss these this time around - OK?" - Ken Kessler,, Yearbook 2018, Rated 95/100 Sound Quality!
