My father always spoke of Memphis as a "Golden City." An electric, soulful center of the musical universe: Blues, Jazz, Rock n' Roll, Gospel, Rockabilly, Country, you name it... Memphis had it all. There the nightlife was vibrant and the music never stopped. There you could see and be seen by the hottest new acts in the business. And there was one place where one man, Sam Phillips, was single-handedly changing the music scene forever, launching superstar after superstar, helping them to hone their own special style and create musical magic called Rock n' Roll. He very much wanted to be part of that and Sam made that dream come true.
The Phillips and Rich families have shared a deep and genuine friendship that was woven over half a century. It is a thrill for me to be a part of a project featuring my father's songs alongside the next generation(s) of Phillips. It is fitting that our families have come full circle to celebrate my father's songs in such a creative and wonderful way.
While many know my father from his fame as a country crooner, there have always been the die-hard Charlie Rich fans that knew his early stuff, some would say the cooler, more soulful, and more personal stuff... the real Charlie Rich.
Feel Like Going Home: The Songs of Charlie Rich features songs written and performed during Charlie's most prolific years as a songwriter, session player, and SUN Records recording artist.
Here is a unique collection of some of today's most soulful artists, handpicked in the tradition of Sam Phillips, to pay homage to Charlie Rich's personal experiences... These, the songs that represented his life and his story. - Charlie Rich Jr.
