LISTEN: Richie Furay, “Lonesome Town” (Ricky Nelson Cover)

In Their Words: “Ricky Nelson was an idol and musical hero of mine. This song (or any) by Ricky had to be included on this record because of his influence on me. I remember watching and waiting for him to play on the old Ozzie and Harriet TV show. One such performance was the one that prompted me — I want to do this; I want to be a musician.

It was a moment in time that will always be dear to my heart.
