Mickey Newbury – Triad Studio Sessions

This…..this my friends is something very special. Mickey Newbury….probably the saddest, most soul cleansing, underrated and unknown songwriter this side of Townes Van Zandt. You know his songs….unless you live under a rock and have never seen the movie The Big Lebowski (…wait a minute…..everyone HAS seen Big Lebowski right?). You see Mickey Newbury is the guy who wrote the iconic “Just Dropped In To See What Condition My Condition Was In”….made famous by Kenny Rogers and The First Edition in the late 60’s, then again by the famous scene in the previously mentioned Big Lebowski. There is a version of “Just Dropped In” on this thing that is just a total deconstruction of the song and just completely takes it to a whole new level….to epic proportions. Watch this video below and see:

That’s definitely the highlight, but this is just a damn damn good collection. Culled from some studio sessions he did in 1991, these songs are all sparse and completely to the point….they will hit you like a blunt instrument to the head. Newbury has had his songs covered by Elvis, Willie Nelson, Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Waylon….that’s just to name a few. You know the song “Luchenbach, Texas” about Willie, and Waylon, and the boys…..Hank Williams pain songs…..Newbury’s train songs.  That’s this Mickey Newbury.

This thing has absolutely perfect sound quality and I urge to listen to it with a bottle of your finest slow sippin’ whiskey, and your total concentration. These are all mostly covers, but Newbury makes them his own and brings out the sadness in even the most simple of songs. He has to have one of the most soul filled, emotionally charged voices in music,  and that haunting whistle…..

    Wow! Didn’t know who he was other than the Luckenbach line. Thanks for introducing him to me! On another note, I was wondering if you could do a feature on talented musicians outside the US.

    That is pretty tortured, totally different sense from the Kenny Rogers take. Thanks.
