A fine marzo la Edsel pubblicherà “Songs”, un box da 12 CD con gli album in solo di Michael Nesmith

Michael Nesmith è diventato famoso come membro dei Monkees, la band americana (di risposta ai Beatles) degli anni 60; dopo lo scioglimento del gruppo, nel 1968, ha proseguito una brillante carriera solista (che ha alternato con quella di produttore cinematografico e televisivo).

“Songs” parte da “Magnetic South”, del 1970, e contiene tutti i dischi pubblicati dalla RCA fino al 1975 e dalla sua etichetta Pacific Arts fino al 1994 (The Garden). Tre dischi del periodo RCA contengono inoltre bonus track.
