Excellent CD... great harmonica... relaxing...
Had to have this CD after hearing "If I Only Had a Brain/Over the Rainbow" on Mickey's website.

I wish the CD liner had the song keys and harmonicas used even though I can usually figure them out, but sometimes different positions or alternate tunings can throw me off...

I've always been a big fan of Mickey Raphael and his harmonica expertise, especially on Willie Nelson's music. I really enjoy Mickey's solo's and his other solo album, Red River Valley (probably hard to find these days!). I look forward to hearing more solo work from Mickey !

Thanks for the music Mickey !

The song "The Search" is worth the price of this CD...
Heard "The Search" from this CD while living in California in the late 80's...how often can a song make a grown man cry and spirit soar at the same time at the sheer beauty of such a song! An excellent CD from a master instrumentalist of a very small instrument that can fit in the palm of your hand--the harmonica. Bravo!

Hand To Mouth
My observation after listening to Mickey Raphael for many years with Willie Nelson and on this C/D:is,He is and I believe I am correct, The finest Harmonica and Harp player in the World, Beyond any question!!
I have had the personal honor to tell him personally at a Willie show in Calgary Alberta in July of 1995
He truely lifts the spirit and gives one chills down your spine at the absolute beauty of his gift.
God has blessed you with a very special gift Mickey. May God continue to bless you !!

I liked most cuts
Most cuts from this CD were generally what I expected of the artist.

Absolutely Wonderful
This is a lyrical, wonderful, heart and soul-soothing work of artistry. Just an amazing and beautiful CD. I have loved listening to Mr. Raphael all these years, but i was just blown away by his solo performances here. I LOVE THIS CD, and would like to see more of Mickey's work offered for us lucky ducks to buy. I play it for my friends and then send them the link to this page. :)
