Best thing I've heard all year...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An American Trilogy (4xCD) (Audio CD)
This box set is superb. There is music here equal to if not better than other "hip cats" from the late sixties/early seventies, such as Tim Buckley's 'Happy/Sad' and David Crosby's 'If I Could Only Remember My Name...'.
Mickey Newbury's music is extremely well-crafted, packed with beautiful and haunting melodies that will creep into your head whilst you're going about your day. The song 'Heaven Help The Child' may reduce you to tears.
This is simply the best thing I've bought/heard this year. If you like this I also recommend Mr. Newbury's 'Winter Winds', another work of haunting beauty: Winter Winds
