Artist: NEWBURY, MICKEY
Title: An American Trilogy
Format: 4 CD Box Set
Label: Drag City
Country: USA
Price: $34.00
"The release of Mickey Newburys An American Trilogy 4xCD box in May of this year was a moment for a serious reconsideration of one of Americas finest lost songwriters. The late Mickey Newburys heyday in the late 1960s and 1970s seems long ago now, but his music is a continued vital force, as was proven by the quick selling through of a limited edition deluxe version of the box-set. Now that this has gone, there are still more who want to and need to know about this music. With this in mind, we are presenting an unlimited edition version with a few less bells and whistles, but all the great music and a still-fat-and-informative version of the accompanying booklet. The albums that constitute An American Trilogy - Looks Like Rain, Frisco Mabel Joy and Heaven Help the Child - were recorded between 1969 and 1973 at a home studio in Madison, Tennessee. Cinderella Sound was a converted two-car garage adjacent to the house of guitarist and engineer Wayne Moss - but you would never know this based on the magisterial sound of these albums, which are regarded as prime works in Mickeys recorded canon. The set is released in a custom-made digipak folder produced in association with Grammy winning designer Susan Archie, who designed the Albert Ayler Holy Ghost and Charlie Patton Screamin and Hollerin the Blues box sets. The package includes a fourth CD of rarities, alternate versions and a 1970 radio session recorded for Los Angeles DJ Skip Weshner. The 28-page booklet features rare photos from the Newbury family archives and extensive liner notes. If you havent already been, An American Trilogy provides a rich and compelling trip to the deep space of Mickey Newbury, one of the most extraordinary and unique artists in American popular music." - Drag City.
