And The Hits Just Keep On Comin'
Released: Aug 1972
Label: Video Ranch
In 1972, Nesmith's First National Band had basically ditched him because of poor record sales, and RCA wanted a record RIGHT NOW. So he called up pedal steel maestro Orville "Red" Rhodes, the only guy in the FNB still willing to play with him, and made quite possibly the best record of his long, productive career. On And the Hits Just Keep On Comin' the duo of Nesmith and Rhodes don't commit exquisite country-pop to tape so much as paint it on canvas like a spacious rural landscape.
