WATERS “Mickey Mantle”

For Slivers of Maranville, who pointed out recently…“I either have to wait for an article mentioning Mantle to crop up, wait for the conversation in a thread I am monitoring to shift to Mantle, or find some unrelated Mantle story.”

The closer, “Mickey Mantle,” is the clincher. It’s a beautifully crafted solo acoustic number with light keys, late blooming percussion and female vocal harmonies.

The song will resonate even more with you if you’ve been belittled by Mickey Mantle after asking for an autograph. But enough of my emotional scars.
