NESMITH, MICHAEL & THE FIRST NATIONAL BAND Loose Salute  RED vinyl reissue SEALED, NEW
Release date: 6/22/2018
Limited red vinyl LP pressing. Loose Salute is the second solo album by American singer-songwriter Michael Nesmith during his post-Monkees career. Released by RCA Records in 1970 and dedicated to Tony Richland, it peaked at #159 on the Billboard Pop Albums charts. The version of "Listen to the Band" featured on the album is the song's third version; previous versions appeared on 331⁄3 Revolutions Per Monkee (featuring The Monkees' final performance of the 1960s with Peter Tork) and as a late-1969 single by The Monkees. The album featured a quasi-instrumental number, "First National Dance," which was recorded for the album but replaced at the last minute by "Silver Moon", which was released as a single in Australia and did quite well there, reaching #14 on the charts.
