Power of Love on CD

Power Of Love was the last Arlo Guthrie recording to be released by Warner Brothers. The cover photograph had been taken a few months earlier in Haleiwa, Hawaii where Arlo and John Pilla we hanging out on the beach trying to come up with ideas for a new record. There are a few highlights on this recording - One of which is the duet with Arlo and Phil Everly on the title song 'Power Of Love' written by T Bone Burnett. The other is the great song by Jimmy Webb, 'Oklahoma Nights' which everyone thought would be the next hit following 'The City Of New Orleans.' It didn't work out that way - There just wasn't enough support for these kinds of songs from the record company or the general public. While they were in the studio recording, Ricki Lee Jones wandered in. Arlo and Ricki Lee started singing some tunes together and ended up recording 'Jamaica Farewell' on the spur of the moment. One little gem 'Slow Boat' is still sung at many of Arlo's concerts. He says it's maybe the best song he's written. He usually says that when he's depressed about something, which thankfully is not all of the time. Produced by Lenny Waronker and John Pilla with AG standing over their shoulders 'Power Of Love' was the last collaboration between these guys. After fifteen years and having done some incredible work it was time to call it quits and move on. This recording was a very fine way to say farewell...
