"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Bonjour Chaton.
  Wed. 5/25/11 7:34am JA:

andrew, i love mickey newbury too much to give you an objective answer, but it is my honest opinion that if you don't buy the new mickey newbury boxset "an american trilogy" on drag city before it goes out of print forever then the gap in your songersongwriter knowhow will be so wide you might as well jump.
  Wed. 5/25/11 7:36am Andrea on the M62:

God this is depressing
  Wed. 5/25/11 7:38am annie:
