That's Our Richie! / 5
It is hard to express in words what this CD means to me. It touches my heart in so many places. I graduated from high school in 1967. Music from 1966-1974 is an integral part of my mental and emotional make-up. Richie Furay, along with Neil Young, James Taylor, and Jackson Browne were my favorites in these turbulent and formative years. In 1977, The Lord Jesus saved me out of drug addiction, and kept my marriage to a genuine "Kind Woman" from falling apart. Praise Him, we are about to celebrate 26 years.
I have a son Sam who is 22 and with whom I am very close. Our taste in music is remarkably similar. I told him that in a magazine article, and on the web site for Richie's church, it was mentioned that so many people who Richie played with in the 60s and 70s became famous and big stars, while Richie really did not. Sam responded by saying that was "Not the case in this house".
Anyway, listening to the CD in my truck with Sam, everything came together for me. The Richie Furay voice and musical style brought me all the way back to "Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing". But the absolute non-comprimising Gospel lyrics in every song (you don't become a pastor of a Calvary Chapel by being a slouch) touched me where I live. All of a sudden I started yelling "That's our Richie Sam! That's our Richie!
I love the entire work, but tracks 4 & 5 "Wake Up My Soul", and "We have come to Worship You" are incredible. I don't know if artists read these reviews, but if they do, I want to say, "Brother Richie, you are something special".
Song "High Flying Bird"
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player
You wore a little cross of gold around your neck
I saw it as you flew between my reason
Like a raven in the night time when you left
I wear a chain upon my wrist that bears no name
You touched it and you wore it
And you kept it in your pillow all the same
My high-flying bird has flown from out my arms
I thought myself her keeper
She thought I meant her harm
She thought I was the archer
A weather man of words
But I could never shoot down
My high-flying bird
The white walls of your dressing room are stained in scarlet red
You bled upon the cold stone like a young man
In the foreign field of death
Wouldn't it be wonderful is all I heard you say
You never closed your eyes at night and learned to love daylight
Instead you moved away
