"Heaven Help The Child" that listens to Drag City music! It's rebellion sound for those bent on twisting the paths from right to wrong and back again, devils be saved. Mickey Newbury loved day trips on that spindly road, and Bill Callahan keeps his dune buggy hidden in a shack underneath the litter of its dusty shoulder. Ergo, it makes tonal sense for Bill to've done covered Mickey's tune, "Heaven Help The Chid," and for us to put it on a 7" single, sided opposite Mickey's original. Bill rarely covers anyone's music other than his own, making this a "must" for the Calla-completist, and anytime Mickey's music appears on any recorded format it makes the best kind of love to your stereo - this time in hi-fi, quick-spinning 45rpm! What better way to treat yourself or your spring-fling? Get one while they be! Officially coming March 27th, 2012, you can preorder yours here!
