Frisco Mable Joy is the 1971 concept album by singer-songwriter Mickey Newbury. This was the second of three albums Newbury recorded at Cinderella Sound. The album includes the original version of "An American Trilogy", which Elvis Presley later performed in his Las Vegas shows with much success. How Many Times (Must The Piper Be Paid For His Song)" is a dramatically re-imagined version of a song first released on Harlequin Melodies, Newbury's RCA debut.
Mabel Joy. Catherine (7"). Hummingbird Records (13). It was actually recorded by the band called Palace of Light; but by the time the band got around to self-releasing it, they had changed names to Mabel Joy, so the single was released as a Mabel Joy song instead of Palace of Light. It has been re-issued on Spring Records as Spring2, with the band name restored to Palace of Light.

Frisco Mabel Joy, his 1971 debut for Elektra, is his masterpiece: an ambitious, orchestrated concept album, a commanding vision of the American soul. Rather than picking and choosing from his vast output, this tribute addresses Newbury's neglect by matching a mostly younger generation of singer-songwriters and alternative-country troubadours with that great Newbury album. Mickey Newbury was a genius singer-songwriter always underappreciated and obscure by the general public. I get excited any time I hear someone is doing a Newbury song and was anxious to hear this tribute.
