Mickey Newbury 'Stories From The Silver Moon Cafe'

£7.99

Stories from the Silver Moon Café, originally released in 2000, was the second album of original songs issued by Mountain Retreat.  Also very much in Newbury’s in characteristic, understated, sensitive  style and recorded with the same Nashville players, alongside twelve previously-unreleased Newbury originals, the album features a new recording of Newbury’s classic “Why You Been Gone So Long”.

The song originally appeared on 1973’s Heaven Help The Child and has been covered by Jerry Lee Lewis, Jessi Colter and David Allan Coe, among others. Of the new songs, Susan Newbury, Mickey’s wife for over forty years, considers “A Storm Is Comin’” to be one of his finest: “the song he wrote when he realised he was dying."
