Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash is American singer-songwriter Michael Nesmith's sixth album of his post-Monkees career. Released in September 1973, it did not chart.
"Some of Shelly's Blues" was written by Nesmith as a potential Monkees’ release during his ’68 Nashville sessions. That version remained unissued until the ‘90s. "Some of Shelly's Blues" was also recorded previously by both the Stone Poneys and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on its 1967 self-titled debut.
The song "Winonah" marks the first time Nesmith co-wrote a song with collaborating songwriters since the Monkees song, "The Kind of Girl I Could Love" (featured on the album More of the Monkees).
On the cover of the album, in small print, are the words, "buy this record." On the CD, the words have been altered to "buy this compact disc."
