Last week, the Live Almanac covered the January 22 performance by Michael Nesmith and pedal steel extraordinaire Pete Finney at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, California. Michael and Pete performed a series of shows this month that highlighted the 1972 album And The Hits Just Keep On Comin' that was recorded by Nesmith and Red Rhodes.

Thank you very much to Kevin Barry for sharing his photos and videos from Michael Nesmith and Pete Finney's performance last evening at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, California. Nez and Pete will conclude this current round of shows highlighting the 1972 Nesmith album And The Hits Just Keep On Comin' in Mill Valley, California tomorrow night at the sold-out Sweetwater Music Hall.
The set list in San Juan Capistrano was the same as Tuesday night's show at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood. Notably, both Micky Dolenz and Chip Douglas were in attendance at the Troubadour.
This past November, the 50th anniversary of Head was commemorated at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and featured special guests Micky Dolenz and Michael Nesmith. Monkees archivist and producer Andrew Sandoval hosted a Q&A session with Micky and Michael after the sold-out screening, which also included a slideshow created by Andrew that showcased photographs taken by legendary rock photographer Henry Diltz. The slideshow revealed many never before seen photos from The Monkees' appearance at Valley Music Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah while filming the "Circle Sky" sequence for the movie Head, screenshots which can be seen below. (The slideshow can be viewed in its entirety at Michael Nesmith's Videoranch Facebook page.)
