MP3 @ 192kbps.

This fan collection includes two shows: from 1996, and 1998 where he is joined by Jack Williams on second guitar. He opens this show as he opened the Lulled by the Moonlight album with Three Bells For Stephen. Newbury sings: “Do you remember me, dear hearts and gentle people? I pray I haven’t stayed away too long.” and then proceeds to sing his story songs about lonely people, the ordinary man and his early pop hit, Just Dropped In. Newbury’s voice is now deep with experience and he makes all these songs sound inconsolably sad.
In an interview conducted shortly before his death in 2002 MN said, “How many people have listened to my songs and thought, ‘He must have a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a pistol in the other’. Well, I don’t. I write my sadness.”
