A Consistently Excellent Mixed Bag - from the Man who looked cool wearing socks with sandals!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mixed Bag (Audio CD)
Revisiting Richie's work a lot since his passing last year, and this first "official" album from 1967 is a terrific showcase for his distinctively rich baritone voice, his guitar work, and the subtle jazz rhythms which work so well on tracks like "High Flyin' Bird" and "Sandy". Though Richie became known for his soulful interpretations of Beatles and Dylan songs, represented here by "Eleanor Rigby" and "Just Like a Woman", it's his impassioned, self-penned anti-war song "Handsome Johnny" (his Woodstock opener) which still has the power to move all these years on, that is the true testament to the man.
