The Night You Wrote That Song – AllMusic review

Thom Jurek of AllMusic has published a review of The Night You Wrote That Song: The Songs of Mickey Newbury. Here’s an excerpt:

Peters delivers gorgeous versions of classics such as “She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye,” “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition What My Condition Was In),” “Heaven Help the Child,” “Frisco Depot,” and “San Francisco Mabel Joy.” Newbury’s tunes are often steeped in pathos: emotional, spiritual, and historical, yet steely in their unflinching honesty and in their revelations of vulnerability. Peters shines throughout, delivering them with an authority central to her own experience as a woman and as a songwriter. Her readings of lesser-known tunes such “The Sailor,” register as unearthed fables from the mists of time.
