Dan Fogelberg's Tribute Album

Postby larrypocofan » Wed Nov 15, 2017 8:32 pm

Dan Fogelberg's Tribute album is finally getting released this Friday. There are lots of interesting and very good covers of Dan's songs. I've listened to the entire album and for the most part I'm liking what I am hearing. It's really great to hear Fools Gold again and great to hear Richie Furay singing with Jeff Hanna of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Garth does a kick ass version of Phoenix. Lots of good music to listen to here. There are lots of favorite songs and artists missing from the album. I hope Jean Fogelberg decides to follow up this album with another album of Dan's covers.

At the Colorado Music Hall of Fame concert this past August, Richie's vocal on "Run For The Roses" was immaculate! Dan's version was of course great, but Richie's version gave it a spiritual soulfulness that only Richie could.

Sad to see that some of the artists who contributed the album have since passed away! (Donna Summer, Glenn Frey, Dobie Gray).

Can't wait to get the CD!

Thanks for the heads up. He still hasn't had a tribute concert like the one for Nicolette Larson with the same compatriots, and that he participated in with Part Of The Plan.  Thanks to his widow, Jean, for making it happen. Excellent album.  What a great singer-writer-musician.  

Song list:
1. Phoenix - Garth Brooks
2. Nether Lands - Donna Summer (with the original music)
3. Better Change - Michael McDonald
4. Longer - Amy Grant, Vince Gill
5. Same Old Lang Syne - Train
6. Don’t Lose Heart - Dobie Gray
7. Old Tennessee - Fool’s Gold's Denny Henson and Tom Kelly
8. As The Raven Flies - Casey James
9. Sutters Mill - Randy Owen
10. Run For The Roses - The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with Richie Furay
11. Hard to Say - Boz Scaggs
12. Part of the Plan - The Eagles
13. There’s A Place In The World For A Gambler - Jimmy Buffett
14. Leader Of The Band - Zac Brown Band

I would have liked to have heard from more of his peers, like Jackson Browne, Emmylou, Chris Hillman, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King, James Taylor, CSN, etc, and Don Henley sing Part Of The Plan instead of Joe Walsh.  Vince Gill sounds amazingly like Fogelberg on Longer.  Beautiful.  Yeah, Donna Summer's (RIP) stellar on Nether Lands with Fogelberg's wonderful orchestration.  Title song to one of my favorite albums of his, along with Phoenix.
