Bill Callahan - 'Heaven Help The Child'

A decent Mickey Newbury cover

A 1973 ballad by Under Appreciated Genius Mickey Newbury gets a single release as part of an ongoing reissue campaign. The cover on the B-side comes courtesy of Smog’s Bill Callahan, who makes a decent fist of giving Newbury’s soft country chops cause for further celebration.
