Just Dropped In

From an unreleased June 3, 1991 demo session. I love hearing a songwriter with a guitar or piano singing the song the way they hear it in their own mind. Often songwriters cannot really sing and I forgive this. Mickey Newbury needs no forgiveness.  This, particularly the first cut, is just stunning - Newbury his guitar, a little whistling, and someone throwing in a little cello now and then. Kenny Rogers version was good too, but in my opinion this is the best version. This is goin' out to The Dude.
