2011 release. With the limited edition 4 CD box set now sold out (and no longer licensed to Drag City in the US), Saint Cecilia Knows now release a less expensive version of the acclaimed 4 CD set, housed in a deluxe 5 panel fold out digipack with a 26 page book-let. An American Trilogy collects three seminal early albums by hugely-influential song-writer and performer Mickey Newbury: Looks Like Rain, Frisco Mabel Joy and Heaven Help The Child. All re-mastered from the original master tapes. The fourth CD includes a hoard of never-before-heard songs, alternate versions and demos from the same period. Imagine the artistry of Hank Williams, the voice of Roy Orbison and the intensity and intimacy of Townes Van Zandt all combined in one man. That's Mickey Newbury.
