Subject:  Mickey's material
Message:  Dear Susan,

I'd like to know if there is any other material you will be releasing on Mickey? I have an old video of Mickey on Church Street Station performing America The Beautiful. I'd like to know if that is available as well or if there is a recorded version of the song I can purchase.

Just a suggestion. I'd like to see a dvd of all the Ralph Emery shows Mickey was on. He performed some material on those shows that I can't find anywhere else.

In closing, I'd like to state that Mickey was the greatest. Period. Being a musican and my first influence being The Beatles, I felt Mickey's music was a country version of the more advanced music the Beatles would record in the later part of their career. I've played his music to stone rock music that sit there in awe and make statements like, "These are the Abbey Roads and Sgt. Pepper's of country music." This is so true.

Personally, losing Mickey was like losing some friend I'd never met. His music made me feel like someone out there understood me. In fact, when I've become involved in relationships and my girlfriend's want to understand me, I'll usually hand them a copy of Frisco Mabel Joy, Looks Like Rain or After All These Years and tell them if they listen to these albums and understand those songs, they'll understand me.

At any rate, If you could respond to my questions I'd appreciate it.

Thank you for your time.
