|Message:||Live at Montezuma Hall was my introduction to Mr. Mickey Newbury. One Man, One Voice, One Guitar.
No backup, No tricks, No fancy production.
I was 17 and I knew right then and there that was my goal. He was one of a kind and there will likely never be another. I still love him after all these years. Eva Cassidy came the closest I've ever heard, but she never recorded an original song. She did have a wonderful way of making other writers songs her own, as did Mr. Newbury once in a while.
"I came to hear the music". I am not a songwriter, but that was my theme song for 30+ years. Mickey put great words in my mouth. ( I thought he wrote that song just for me. ) actually I felt that way about all his songs.
If only he could have given everyone the ears to hear,His Masters voice.RCA: Royal Celestial Audio.
