Newbury, Mickey - Looks Like Rain Looks Like Rain
Pop Used - LP SR 61236 Mercury
1969 Original In Shrink, COH. "Aided By Co-Producers Bob Beckham And Guitarist Jerry Kennedy, Newbury Created An Album So Haunting, So Elegant, So Full Of Melancholy And Mystery, It Sounds Out Of Time, Out Of Space. It Is A Sound That Seemingly Comes From Inside The Mind Of The Listener Than From The Speakers On The Stereo. When The Sound Of Thunder And Rain Appears At The Beginning Of "She Even Woke Me Up To Say Goodbye," You Are Hardly Surprised. Newbury's Stories Are Movies; All The Settings Are In Place Before The Story Begins. He Can Move Back And Forth In Time While Changing Images To Suit The Evolving Narrative. "San Francisco Mable Joy" Is A Long Tale Of Dispossession, Dislocation, Failure, And Death, But So Poetically Beautiful It Can't Help But Be Heard, Then Echoed, Deep In The Heart Of The Listener. The Thunderstorm Is In Full Flood Now, Running Through Each Track, From Speaker To Speaker In One Long Line, Sheets Of Rain Pouring Down Around The Place The Singer Emotes From. Suddenly A Gunshot Cuts Just Loudly Enough To Jar Us From The Reverie. At Six-Minutes-And-Forty-Three Seconds, There Is Plenty Of Room For The Song's Drama To Create A Tension So Mournful It Becomes Nearly Unbearable. And Even Though You Know What's Coming As The Story Winds Down, The Song's Ending Is Totally Devastating. It Looks Like Rain Is So Fine, So Mysterious In Its Pace, Dimension, Quark Strangeness And Charm, It Defies Any Attempt At Strict Categorization Or Criticism; A Rare Work Of Genius." - AMG. Gorgeous Sound On This Rarity.... more details

Newbury, Mickey - His Eye Is On The Sparrow His Eye Is On The Sparrow
Country New - LP HA 44011 ABC
Sealed 1978 Original With MCA Embossed Catalog Number On Jacket. “His Eye Is On The Sparrow Is One Of Mickey Newbury's Prettiest Records. It's Intimate In A Way That None Of His Others Are; It's A Lonely But Not World-Weary Set. The Songs Are Fraught With A More Fragile And Tender Beauty, And Are Underscored By His Production Team's Subtle Nuances And Textures. The Album Shows A Return To The Sound Effects (Particularly The Rainstorm) Of His Earliest Sides. "Westphalia Texas Waltz" Is A Country Waltz Showcasing A Beautiful Chamber String Section Set Against Charlie Mccoy's Harmonica And The Endless Sound Of Rain Falling. Newbury's Version Of The Title Track — Arranged Here By Film Score Producer Alan Moore — Is An American Classic In The Public Domain. It's A Gospel Song That Isn't Gospel, A Sacred Song That Is Secular Enough To Include The Sounds Of Gulls (And, One Supposes, Sparrows). "The Dragon And The Mouse"'S Deep Metaphorical Narrative Is Missed Because Of The Deceptive Simplicity Of The Arrangement And Instrumentation. Another Pleasant Weirdness Is The Brief "St. Cecelia," With Its Church Bell And Stacked Choirs Courtesy Once Again Of The Nashphilharmonic. It's A Country Hymn To Everything That Has Passed Away Except For The Burden Of Inspiration To Do What's Right. The Disc Closes With A Reprise (Of Sorts) Of Its Opener. But "Juble Lee's Revival Shout" Is No Gospel Song; It's A Small, Bleak Testament To The Most Intimate Kind Of Loneliness — The Kind Found In The Mirror At The End Of The Day. It's A Chilling Way To End A Record That Began So Tenderly, So Simply, If Not Optimistically. But That's Newbury. The Most Horrible Truths Are The Ones That Are Gorgeously Told To Us By Sages And Well-Meaning Hucksters, And He's Both. It Is A Truly Awesome And Off-Putting Finish.” – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details
 
Newbury, Mickey - Sailor Sailor
Country New - LP HB 44017 ABC
Sealed 1979 Original With MCA Embossed Catalog Number On Jacket. “Who Would Have Thought That Mickey Newbury Would Issue A 100%, Crackling Fresh Country-Pop Record In 1979? Produced By Ronnie Gant With (Massive) String Arrangements By Alan Moore At Cowboy Jack Clement's Studio, The Sail Reveals That Newbury Knew What It Took All The Time, But By The Time He Let His Muse Follow Him Down The Commercial Country Rabbit Hole, It Was Too Late. The First Track, "Blue Sky Shinin'," Is A Country Love Song Arranged And Exquisitely Performed As If Written For Patsy Cline. Next, "Let's Have A Party" Is Perhaps Newbury's Anthem, Not Because Of Its Title, But Because It's One Of The Most Beautiful Confessional Songs He's Ever Written. The Production By Gant Is Straightforward And Newbury's Voice Is Clearly In The Foreground. The Sound Effects Are Replaced With Layers Of Instrumentation And Backing Vocals. Newbury's Relaxed Delivery Offers The Listener A Way To See Just How Sincere These Songs Are. While There Are No Weak Cuts, The Aforementioned Stand Out. So Does "Let It Go," Done In 2/4 Time, Beginning As A Country Song And Ending By Transforming Itself Inside Out Into A Gospel Shouter. The Sailor, Once Again, Refused To Sell, Perhaps Because It Was Too Late, Perhaps Because It Was Too Early — Merle Haggard And George Jones Made Records That Sounded Exactly Like This Only Three Years Later And Scored Big. As Great As This Record Is, And As Good As Newbury Knew It Was, It Was The Same Old Story. Nashville's Radio Machine Wasn't Having It, And Therefore The Public Never Got The Chance To Make Up Its Mind. In Fact, The Way Newbury's Entire Career Was Handled By Nashville Is Evidence Enough To Raze The Entire Town And Start Over. – Thom Jurek, All Music Guide... more details
