Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mickey Newbury's music has been a big part of my life for almost 40 years. Like many others in the UK of my vintage, I first heard Mickey on the radio singing An American Trilogy back in 1971. I remember discussing the song one day with the late Joe Butler of Liverpool's Hillsiders, a good friend at that time. The Hillies were really enthusing about the song, and Joe told me they'd assumed at first that Mickey was black because he sang with so much impassioned soul. I picked up a copy of the 'Frisco Mabel Joy album the next day.

Some years later I had the good fortune to interview Mickey for a country music magazine at Wembley in 1977. Amongst other things, I remember him saying that although naturally he was pleased when Elvis covered An American Trilogy - it became his Vegas show-stopper - the patriotic, military drum sound had given a different feel to the song than he'd intended. Mickey had seen the Trilogy as a love song, his love song to the American people - the North, the South, the Native and African-American. Sadly, even then Mickey was not in the best of health, and the people with him cut short our interview so that he could rest. I still have the tape somewhere, on which the strains of Emmylou and her Hot Band, running through a sound-check in the main auditorium, can be heard in the background.

Of course, Mickey went out on stage later to give a masterly performance.

But preferably buy it. Mickey Newbury is inexplicably a lost treasure.
The people he influenced have all been re-evaluated and praised; people like Kristofferson and Prine, and yet the originator still remains sadly overlooked; 'til now.
A truly splendid collection, and some of the most emotionally charged songs and performances ever committed to tape..-
