"Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash" is American singer-songwriter Michael Nesmith's seventh album, released in 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’s 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").

"Pretty Much Your Standard Ranch Stash" was Nesmith's final album for RCA Records. The album, however, was, re-released on the Pacific Arts label and subsequently on CD by multiple labels. It was reissued with "And the Hits Just Keep on Comin'" by BMG International in 2000.
