Release Date:05/26/2017;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing including digital download that features bonus material. 2017 album from the veteran singer/songwriter and frontman for The Bongos. Richard Barone's Sorrows & Promises: Greenwich Village In The 1960s casts new light on the songs that sprang from the singer/songwriters in and around Greenwich Village during that pivotal decade. While Top 40 hit songs were being churned out uptown in the Brill Building and at 1650 Broadway, the downtown writers were weaving folk, blues, R&B and rock into songs that five decades later still sound fresh and inventive. Richard's choices cover a broad range of writers, from Buddy Holly, who was living and demoing songs in his Greenwich Village apartment just before he died, to up-and-comers like Paul Simon, John Sebastian (of the Lovin' Spoonful) and James Taylor (of The Flying Machine), to the artists redefining folk music - Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Tim Hardin, Fred Neil - for a new generation. Sorrows and Promises revisits and re-imagines these songs that were a vital contribution to the American Songbook, treating them like the modern standards they are. The album features an all-star line-up of guest musicians and vocalists including John Sebastian, Dion, Allison Moorer, Nellie McKay, David Amram, Jenni Muldaur, and The Kennedys. The album was produced by Steve Addabbo, who has a strong creative connection to the music being revisited on the project.;Track List:1. Learning the Game (Buddy Holly);2.
