In November 2018, the Richie Furay Band took the stage at the historic Troubadour in West Hollywood, 40 years after Poco made its live debut in the same concert hall. The performance included two sets from Furay and his band: Still DeLIVErin, which featured solo songs, Poco favorites and Buffalo Springfield gems, while the second set, DeLIVErin’ Again, was highlighted by a full-album performance of Poco’s 1971 live album and “A Good Feelin’ To Know,” for which Timothy B. Schmit joined Furay and the band on vocals.

Here’s a preview in the form of “Kind Woman,” taken from the DVD release:

50th Anniversary Return to the Troubadour will be made available digitally, as a two-CD set and on DVD.

Said Furay in a statement, per a news release:

“Poco released their first “live” album in 1971, it was called DeLIVErin’; here we are 50+ years later and I have re-recorded this iconic album with my “live” band – RFB!  I don’t know of any other group that has ever re-recorded a live album from their past catalogue and truthfully, I wasn’t sure it could be done either; but, I took on the challenge and now you get to hear it for yourself. In many respects it was a labor of love because I knew how important the ‘original album was to Poco fans and if RFB didn’t meet the standard, it would be a disappointment.  I do not believe you are going to be disappointed.  From my viewpoint, we have met and exceeded any expectations.  Listen for yourself, but I believe we have captured the heart and soul of the music; even Timothy B. got on board to sing one of his originals.  So, I hope you enjoy listening to this recreation – “DeLIVErin’ Again”.  Shut your eyes, pretend you’re one of the wall to wall people at the The Troubadour in Los Angeles, California that November evening and turn it up loud.”
