Richie Furay at the Troubadour concert

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Richie Furay, one of the architects of the country rock genre as a member of Buffalo Springfield, Poco, and later with the Southern Hillman Furay Band, has announced the April 2, 2021, release of the live concert album 50th Anniversary Return to the Troubadour. It will be released as a double CD as well as a single DVD concert film via DSDK Productions, distributed by MRI Entertainment. Watch several of the performances below.

Recorded at the iconic Los Angeles venue in November 2018, the album is comprised of two 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.” Furay’s Poco bandmate Timothy B. Schmit joined for two of the songs.

Poco’s classic live album, DeLIVErin’, was released 50 years ago on Jan. 13, 1971.

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 Schmit joining Furay on the Schmit-penned “Hear That Music” from DeLIVErin’ and “A Good Feelin’ to Know.” (Poco’s first bass player, Randy Meisner, was at the show backstage but did not perform.)

The Richie Furay Band also includes Jesse Furay Lynch (tambourine and vocals), Scott Sellen (guitars, banjo and vocals), Jack Jeckot (keyboards, harmonica, guitar and vocals), Aaron Sellen (bass guitar and vocals),
Alan Lemke (drums), plus Dave Pearlman (pedal steel guitar and dobro).

The performance of “C’mon” was shared in advance of the album’s release. “[It] was a song that certainly captured the heart of Poco’s audiences,” says Fray. “It was a concert closer for our set for quite a few years having that upbeat tempo that just drew our audiences in.”
