my last time in the city of my dreams i sat w/mr robicheaux in molly's. we took turns buying each other shots of tequila for several hours. he talked about fess & booker & earl king & cosimo. he invited me to lunch(someone else was buying)but i declined, knowing that i was headed for a tequila-induced nap.
sitting there w/mr wu the cat as our only audience & the decatur st morning slowly unfolding outside the large open street window of molly's, i simply listened to coco spin out a non-stop monologue about everything i love.
what a gift.

there's not much out there of mickey video-wise & i just stumbled onto this gorgeous piece at the no depression website. it covers all of the bases, as far as his appeal to me goes: voice, lyrics, & emotive delivery w/quiet grace & power. o, & he's doing it live too.

this is black dub.
that's daniel lanois, brady blade, & daryl johnson laying down an incredible groove for trixie whitley to slip & slide along w/jaw-dropping intensity. there's quite a story behind these folks working together(it has a lot to do w/ms. whitley's father, the late, much & deservedly lamented, chris whitley). i'm just going to let this beauty speak for itself.
