Once his years as a TV Monkee were behind him, Michael Nesmith fully emerged as a gifted singer/songwriter with a distinctive country-rock bent. 1971's Loose Salute was one of his best-realized efforts. Recorded with his First National Band, the album lets Nesmith roam across a Western sonic landscape without forgetting his pop-rock impulses. Except for a lovingly rendered cover of Patsy Cline's "I Fall to Pieces," the tracks feature Nesmith's own lyrical wit and flair for finely-contoured melodies. "Silver Moon" simmers with Caribbean seasoning, "Dedicated Friend" rocks with propulsive energy, "Tengo Amore" basks in sultry Spanish tones, and "Lady of the Valley" glows with gentle romance. Nesmith even reinvents his Monkees favorite "Listen to the Band" as a countrified showpiece. Among his bandmates, Red Rhodes especially shines on pedal steel guitar. Filled with unexpected musical twists and rendered with a winning sincerity, Loose Salute is a neglected country-rock classic.
