I cannot think of a better tribute to explain or categorise Mickey Newbury, the man, and his music.

The sunshine......a look towards the future and all it's promises.
the rain..........a look back to the past with all it's regrets and sorrows.

Intertwine these two concepts with the sound of a train.......the 'whistle' and the 'click-clack' of the steel wheels.....from a distance [the past].....ever slowly becoming louder, subtlety bringing the past to clash into [the present]......then the sound quickly disappears over the horizon into [the future]
Mickey had an ingenious way of capturing three dimensional 'time' into one beautiful melodious sequence.

his music, quietly becomes, ......unforgettable.
