DSDK ProductionsFounding Buffalo Springfield and Poco singer/guitarist Richie Furay has just released his new live album, 50th Anniversary Return to the Troubadour, via digital platforms.
The album documents a special show that Furay played with his solo band in November 2018 at Los Angeles' famed Troubadour venue and that featured a full performance of Poco's 1971 live album, DeLIVErin'. 50th Anniversary Return to the Troubadour also will be released as a two-CD set and on DVD on April 23; signed copies can be pre-ordered at RichieFuray.com.
The concert featured two sets, with the first — dubbed "Still DeLIVErin'" — offering a mix of Buffalo Springfield tunes, Poco gems and songs from Furay's solo catalog. The second set, titled "DeLIVErin' Again," showcased the DeLIVErin' performance, plus an encore rendition of Poco's enduring 1972 song "A Good Feelin' to Know."
Longtime Eagles and former Poco bassist Timothy Schmit, who played on DeLIVErin', joined Furay at the 2018 concert for two songs — "Hear That Music" and the aforementioned "A Good Feelin' to Know."
In a new Q&A, Furay admits he initially was apprehensive about playing a concert featuring the entire DeLIVErin' album.
"I had been doing a few of the songs in my live performances for some time, but the thought of actually trying to capture the moment and excitement of doing all of those songs 'live' was going to be a challenge," he explains. "I do believe that my group, at that time, was the only 'representation' of Poco that could attempt it and I believe the final product speaks for itself — it was a challenge, and we met the challenge."
