|Message:||You folks are such a wealth of information! I am amazed that some of you actually knew Mickey Newbury!
I am wondering what Mickey thought of Elvis's version of An American Trilogy?
Mickey's version was very personal. When I first heard it, and I still hear it that way now, it is a Civil War Southerner singing, then a Northern soldier, then, maybe, a slave. Very personal.
For Elvis, it was an anthem. Also very great, very moving.
But I don't think that is what Mickey had in mind when he put it together.
