Subject:  "New" Mickey on Youtube
Message:  Just a heads up to let everyone know that Mickey's very fine performance on the BBC is now available to view on YouTube.
Old Grey Whistle Test. Season 2. Episode 3. Broadcast Oct.17,1972. This is the entire episode. To view Mickey's segment, here's a guide...
16:12 Introduction by Bob Harris
16:52 An American Trilogy
20:30 How Many Times (Must The Piper Be Paid For His Song)
25:19 – 28:00 Interview
Here's the link:

A some of you may know, I've created accurate tablature (indicating both hands) detailing precisely how Mickey performed these two songs as they were broadcast on the BBC. I've now finished other tabs as well. For example,the LP guitar introduction (which is quite different from this BBC performance) for "Piper". I've also completed three "Montezuma Hall" tablatures: 1. Heaven Help The Child 2. An American Trilogy (which has some major differences from the BBC version) and 3.San Francisco Mabel Joy (which was my most recent project). There will be more to follow! Mickey's guitar playing, in the early 70s, was much more involved that it was in his later years. Fortunately, through Joe's kindness, and a few others, I've had access to these rare early videos. Without them, these tablatures would not have been possible. I've sent copies, for most of these, to Brian Highley and Joe Ziemer...each tablature runs many pages (needless to say!). I hope everyone enjoys the BBC video...it's a treasure!
