||Although a long time fan and admirer of Mickey's music, I recently purchased "A Long Road Home", which inspired me to read "Crystal & Stone". While I always appreciated Mickey and his music, I am now just in love with both. Until reading the book, I did not know what a magnificent human being he was, and have shed belated tears over his untimely passing. I am 69 years old and have been a music fanatic my entire life, with a collection of about 5000 albums. "Long Road Home" is the most beautiful thing I have ever heard. I will now collect everything he has ever recorded, that I don't already have.
