RICHIE FURAY
TODAY SHARES LIVE PERFORMANCE VIDEO OF
POCO CLASSIC “C’MON”
AHEAD OF APRIL 2 RELEASE OF DOUBLE LIVE ALBUM + DVD
‘50TH ANNIVERSARY RETURN TO THE TROUBADOUR’
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee RICHIE FURAY–one of the chief architects of the country rock genre as a member of Buffalo Springfield, Poco and the Souther-Hillman- Furay Band–today (2/26) shared a live performance video of Poco’s in-concert favorite “C’mon” from their classic 1971 live album DeLIVErin.’ The video and single are taken from FURAY’s upcoming 50TH ANNIVERSARY RETURN TO THE TROUBADOUR–a double CD and download as well as a single DVD concert film on DSDK Productions, distributed by MRI Entertainment—out April 2. Watch the video here and listen to the single here. The video was premiered yesterday via Relix. Pre-save and pre-add the album here.

Recorded with The Richie Furay Band at the iconic Los Angeles venue in November 2018, the double album is comprised of two powerful sets: “Still DeLIVErin,’ which encompasses Buffalo Springfield songs, favored Poco tunes and some of FURAY’s finest solo work, and “DeLIVErin’ Again,” a front-to-back performance of Poco’s DeLIVErin’ plus their 1972 signature song “A Good Feelin’ To Know” with Timothy B. Schmit (who joined Poco in 1969 on vocals and bass) singing his parts. The audio for the CD and concert film was mixed and produced by multi-Grammy Award-winning audio engineer Ross Hogarth.

The FURAY-penned “C’mon” is emblematic of Poco’s soaring feel-good songs, one that galvanized its loyal fanbase at headlining shows at venues like New York’s Carnegie Hall and Fillmore East. “’C’mon’ was a song that certainly captured the heart of Poco’s audiences,” says FURAY. “It was a concert closer for our set for quite a few years having that upbeat tempo that just drew our audiences in.”

Lyrically, “C’mon” is a relationship song and one about peace, too, with lines like “I believe that you and I as friends/Should love one and another/Satisfied, have a peace of mind/ Love your neighbor as your brother.” Explains FURAY: “The song broadened out in the third verse to a message of hope for a world that was struggling with war. Either way, I wrote the song hoping it would convey a universal, positive message–that no matter how life looked, there was hope.”

The Troubadour show was truly a magical evening in many ways. The sold-out concert marked FURAY’s 50th anniversary return to the venue where Poco (originally as Pogo) performed their very first shows in 1968. The evening was marked by Timothy B. Schmit joining FURAY on the Schmit-penned “Hear That Music” from DeLIVErin’ and the above-mentioned “A Good Feelin’ To Know.” Timothy also introduced FURAY onstage

after reading a congratulatory note from Cameron Crowe (who intended being at the Troubadour in person but could not make it at the last minute). Timothy then introduced the esteemed artist and producer Peter Asher (Peter & Gordon), who presented FURAY with a commemorative award for his 50th anniversary return to the Troubadour. Also on hand at the show and backstage was Randy Meisner, Poco’s first bass player before Schmit replaced him.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee RICHIE FURAY (Buffalo Springfield, Poco, The Souther Hillman Furay Band)–one of the chief architects of the country rock genre–has today (1/15) announced the April 2 release of the live concert album 50TH ANNIVERSARY RETURN TO THE TROUBADOUR (*see his quotes below from the liner notes). It will be released as a double CD and download as well as a single DVD concert film on DSDK Productions, distributed by MRI Entertainment. Pre-save and pre-add the album here.

Recorded with The Richie Furay Band at the iconic Los Angeles venue in November 2018, it is comprised of two powerful sets: “Still DeLIVErin,’ which encompasses Buffalo Springfield songs, favored Poco tunes and some of his finest solo work, and “DeLIVErin’ Again,” a front-to-back performance of Poco’s classic 1971 live album DeLIVErin’ plus their 1972 signature song “A Good Feelin’ To Know” with Timothy B. Schmit (who joined Poco in 1969) on vocals.

Notably, the classic DeLIVErin’ album was released 50 years ago this week. In honor of it, FURAY—noted for his unmistakable soulful voice, evocative songwriting, and hard driving guitar playing–has shared the Troubadour performance of the album’s “Kind Woman,” FURAY’s Buffalo Springfield song, Watch it here and listen to it here.

The Troubadour show was truly a magical evening in many ways. The sold-out concert marked FURAY’s 50th anniversary return to the venue where Poco (originally as Pogo) performed their very first shows in 1968. The evening was marked by Timothy B. Schmit joining FURAY on the Schmit-penned “Hear That Music” from DeLIVErin’ and the above-mentioned “A Good Feelin’ To Know.” Timothy also introduced FURAY onstage

after reading a congratulatory note from Cameron Crowe (who intended being at the Troubadour in person but could not make it at the last minute). Timothy then introduced the esteemed artist and producer Peter Asher (Peter & Gordon), who presented FURAY with a commemorative award for his 50th anniversary return to the Troubadour. Also on hand at the show and backstage was Randy Meisner, Poco’s first bass player before Schmit replaced him.

Here are RICHIE FURAY’s quotes from the liner notes:

“Poco released their first “live” album in 1971, it was called DeLIVErin’; here we are 50+ years later and I have re-recorded this iconic album with my “live” band – RFB!  I don’t know of any other group that has ever re-recorded a live album from their past catalogue and truthfully, I wasn’t sure it could be done either; but, I took on the challenge and now you get to hear it for yourself. In many respects it was a labor of love because I knew how important the ‘original album was to Poco fans and if RFB didn’t meet the standard, it would be a disappointment.  I do not believe you are going to be disappointed.  From my viewpoint, we have met and exceeded any expectations.  Listen for yourself, but I believe we have captured the heart and soul of the music; even Timothy B. got on board to sing one of his originals.  So, I hope you enjoy listening to this recreation – “DeLIVErin’ Again”.  Shut your eyes, pretend you’re one of the wall to wall people at the The Troubadour in Los Angeles, California that November evening and turn it up loud.”
