“A Good Feelin’ To Know”

The Ohio-born Richie Furay has a resume’ that’s kind of staggering. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee was not only a co-founder of Buffalo Springfield, he was also a co-founder of Poco and he was in the Au Go Go Singers, the Souther Hillman Furay band and he fronts the Richie Furay band as well. Although Buffalo Springfield wasn’t around that long, the band reformed in 2010 and Furay found himself playing everywhere from the Bridge School Benefit to Bonnaroo. A singer whose phrasing is as graceful as they come and a guitar player who is both thoughtful and dynamic, Furay is not only one of the greats, he’s one of the main architects of the country rock sound that later influenced bands I grew up listening to like Green on Red or Uncle Tupelo. Furay was set to retire from the road in 2020 but the pandemic thwarted those plans, so his farewell tour had to be put off. Dates are being rescheduled, but in the meantime, the singer songwriter has just put out a double live album called 50th Anniversary Return To The Troubadour, a riveting set of classics that showcases Furay’s depth as a musician. That depth can also be seen in the upcoming Cameron Crowe narrated Richie Furay documentary Through It All: The Life and Influence of Richie Furay.
