Richie Furay was a founding member of Buffalo Springfield with Neil Young in the ‘60s, near enough invented country rock (ahead of the Eagles) in the ‘70s with his band Poco before becoming a Christian and releasing a number of solo albums. This one is from 1978 and typifies the country flavoured smooth pop rock that he’s famous for. Gifted with a distinctive voice and strong songwriting talents, Richie managed to take his new found faith and write mainstream albums that mixed love songs and faith songs and keep his audience. This welcome CD re-release shows that ‘Dance A Little Light’ isn’t as accomplished as the earlier ‘I’ve Got A Reason’ or as spiritually impacting as the later ‘Seasons Of Change’ but it has all the trademark production, songwriting and instrumental elements that Furay fans have come to expect. A workmanlike effort but it doesn’t set my heart on fire.
