Album Notes
You can feel the passion Larry Mages has for music in his deep raspy voice. Just sit back and close your eyes and live the songs line for line. Feel the pain of suffering a lifetime in a wheelchair as in the song "Now I Can Dance" that Larry wrote for his wheelchair bound uncle's funeral. Thousands have found solace and hope in his beautiful words. The song is especially a favorite of people that have lost a loved one that suffered a long hard death. No one I know has listened to the song without getting teary eyed. Larry's country background and keen observation of life has enabled him to relate to people's joys and trials. In "Forever With You" Larry has a unique sense of the guilt we all feel in our lives. Somehow he has such a simple way of putting it into words.
Larry grew up in a family of 16 children on a dairy and grain farm in southern Minnesota. Everyone of Larry's brothers and sisters played an instrument and Larry has passed that tradition down to his children. The Mages Family Band has the beautiful harmonizing voices of Larry and Maggie's three daughters, Theresa, Amanda, and Emily. You'll hear Amanda's sweet vocals singing lead on "One Day At A Time". Son's Matt, and Joe pound out the toe tapping rhythms.
In a poll of fans at a Mages concert, Larry's slow rock rendition of "The Lords Prayer" was the crowd favorite. You may have heard "The Lord's Prayer" before, but never like this, you're sure to love it.
Pop songs "I Believe" and "These Are The Days" are the heart and soul of this CD. Both show the positive attitude Larry has toward life. "Like A Rock" should only be played on 'wide open' so you can absorb the range of this big man. Larry throws his Minnesota country flavor into old standards like "I Can't Stop Loving You", "There Goes My Heart" and the gospel sound of "Just A Closer Walk With Thee". Even though they cross several genres of music Larry and the Mages Family Band will have you playing this simple, but 'so true to life' CD of songs over and over.

Thank you for writing such a beautiful, comforting song. My son just passed away last week. "Now I Can Dance" was played at his funeral. The song fit him so perfectly.....its as though you wrote it just for him. As my daughter, Cheryl Kohls said in the previous review, it allowed us some solace along with our sadness. Thank you for the beautiful words and harmony. Thank you for saying so beautifully what we could not.


Amazing and uplifting music
The CD has songs that are amazing and uplifting. I like to listen to this CD when I have been having a rotten day. After listening, I find I have a smile on my face.

Now I can Dance
My brother passed on last week at the age of 53. He has been disabled since birth and wheel chair bound in his adult life. He hated the chair. He hated being dependent on others. We played this song at his funeral and everyone there understood that Jerry is now in a better, happier place. It allowed us some solace along with our sadness. Thank you for the words. Thank you for the beautiful harmony. Thank you for saying so beautifully what we could not.


These are songs you can embrace when you need it most
I love the words to Now I Can Dance. Even though it's about a person that couldn't walk and now he can in heaven, it helped us through my Mom's long battle with cancer. I feel that after all her suffering, she's also in heaven dancing.
