RICHRATH Project 3:13 – L.A. Is Mine (2021)

Lead guitarist and songwriter for REO Speedwagon from 1970 until 1989, when Gary Richrath left the band he formed his own group RICHRATH releasing their debut CD ‘Only the Strong Survive’ in 1992. RICHRATH featured the songwriting partnership of Gary and vocalist Michael Jahnz, and they toured together for over a decade playing the album songs plus the ones Gary had written for REO Speedwagon.
Early in this new Century, Gary and Jahnz went separate ways but still friends and with the idea of reforming RICHRATH the band again in the future. So many ans have been waiting and wanting “new” RICHRATH music but since the unfortunate passing of Gary in 2015 they have almost lost hope.
The perfect storm has finally happened this 2021… Jahnz has gathered himself a phenomenal group of talented musicians, dusted off a few never heard before RICHRATH recordings and is releasing “L.A. Is Mine“, now under the moniker RICHRATH Project 3:13.
Not only will you be hearing new Richrath music but, Gary’s magical guitar work is here a again with 3 previously unreleased songs recorded back in the day.
The rest are new originals written by Jahnz, of course, with that ’80s feel & sound in the vein of REO Speedwagon, Tyketto, and more…

REO SPEEDWAGON – The Second Decade of Rock & Roll 1981-1991

As requested, here’s REO SPEEDWAGONThe Second Decade of Rock & Roll 1981-1991“, covering some of the best ’80s rocking material from the band. However it isn’t a Greatest Hits compilation; while there’s some of the band’s studio hits from the second half of the Eighties, most are live recordings showcasing how good REO sounded at the time.
On many songs we have the great Dave Amato delivering hot guitar licks – on stage the man fly on the fretboard – and this is the only REO collection to include their ’82 hit “Keep the Fire Burnin'” preformed live.
The album also includes the rare ’89 Reggae Version’ of “Keep on Loving You” and standout live captures of “Take It on the Run,” “Roll with the Changes,” “Can’t Fight This Feeling,” and “I Do’wanna Know”.
Highly Recommended
