    You must seek out the recording "Nights When I Am Sane" from 1994. It is the only pure, unadulterated record of Mickey Newbury ever made. A straight representation of who he was in concert on the most pure and personal level. Just him and Jack Williams, both on guitar. There's no overbearing string orchestra to be heard. With nothing but six strings, a powerful whistle, and his voice, he takes you on a dark, dark journey. You can see the exact same live recording on DVD with "Live at the Hermitage".
