||PRAISE THE LORD AND PASS THE BLUE BELL. Over ten years ago, Dave Franklin, gave me a demo of Mickey Newbury's cd Long Road Home. I've been looking for that sucker for 4+years. Suzette Moore was cleaning the house ( sure I was helping ... ok maybe not.) Anyway she found it! It was in a different cd container, actually, I don't think it was ever in a solid container.
The last time we saw Mickey, at Mamie's house, before his passing, Mickey was telling me about his new upcoming cd and somewhere along the conversation I slipped and Mickey figured it out that, I already had a demo of it. I stood there like a deer looking into the headlights. Man, the look he gave me. Whoo! Out of fear of my life, I told him that Dave gave it to me. I think I remember emailing Dave ( think he was seeing Mickey that night or next day.) and I told him," Man I sure would hate to be you, the next time you see Mickey."
Anyway, a fortune has been found. Thank you Suzette.
