Welcome Back: Richie Furay
Former Buffalo Springfield/Poco man returns with “heartfelt” solo LP, and he's ready for the road
“For a long time I didn’t think I’d ever make another album,” says Richie Furay. “Let’s face it, I’m an old-timer and who knows what the cards have in store.”
Now 71, Furay has earned the right to take his time about his music. Nine years since his last solo album, The Heartbeat Of Love, the former Buffalo Springfield and Poco singer-guitarist has always opted for quality over quantity. As evidenced by his new album, Hand In Hand: a wonderfully heartfelt mix of the kind of blues- and folk-inflected country rock that these days gets called Americana.
