Message:  I sent a copy of Blue To This Day to my brother in prison.
He has been there a long time and will be there a longer time still. I won`t explain why he is there because it is of no relevance.
He loves music but is only allowed original CDs, no copies. He asked me to send him some of Mickey`s music if I find anything cheap in Austin, not knowing that you don`t find any of Mickey`s music in Austin,let alone going cheap.

I had an extra copy of Blue To This Day (thanks to Mountain Retreat) so I sent him that explaining that it was a posthum CD and different to his early stuff.
Here is what he wrote back....

"Hello Jackie,
Thank you so much for your letter and the Mickey Newbury CD. It`s a really lovely album and I think I shall be playing it quite a lot over the coming months. The song Remember The Good was a big hit for Roy Orbison,as you may know. Roy was a fan of Mickey Newbury and I have five or six Roy Orbison "covers" in my CD collection."



It is comforting for me to know that my brother is finding some solace in listening to Mickey.


THEY CALL YOU THE MAN OF SORROW
THEY CALL YOU THE PRECIOUS SOUL
BUT I CALL YOU YOUR MOTHER´S TREASURE
AND SHE CALLS YOU YOUR FATHER´S GOLD
