Thoughts from author, John Nichols, on WATER

I have really enjoyed “WATER”.  I really like the driving rock of the first song, “Call Me Back”.  I think “Man About Town” is wonderful also, and “Pirate Kitty” made me laugh.  “Water” is really cool, but my two favorites are “Old Friends” and “Fields Where They Lay”.  Both songs are incredibly moving.  The piano is wonderful, and evocative, such a sweet poignant bluesy emotional mood, really exquisite.  Richie, you sure can tickle those ivories!  The entire album is really original, unique, very touching.  Congratulations to all of you who put it together.  I will listen to it often, and marvel at all the different moods it lays down.
