Album Notes
"The Road That I Must Take" is my fourth full-length album, and my third of all original songs. The title comes from the fourth track, "I Believe", from a section that reads, "now I see the road that I must take 'cause I see a difference I can make." While the album isn't a true concept album in that only two of the songs were written after plans for the album started taking shape, the album does have a loose theme relating to purpose and paths through life and love. This theme emerged, at least partly, due to various crossroads I have recently encountered in my own path, some of which I am still facing.

The general philsophy behind the album is that all the decisions we make along the road of life, and all the developments that arise from those decisions, lead to where we are today. Sometimes developments that seem very negative at the time they are encountered end up being necessary for growth and to allow for even better things to come. Of course, we may only understand this in hindsight, but in the presence of hard times and difficult decisions, we can at least keep the faith that this will be true.

On the musical front, whereas my most recent prior album, "In and Out of Love Again", went in a fairly heavily keyboard-centric pop direction, this album is much more electric guitar-oriented, going in a more rock-oriented direction. Seven of the recordings had been released as singles prior to starting this album project, but six of those have been remixed here to bring the recordings up to my current production standards. One song was newly recorded for this album but released earlier this year as a single. The other four, all of which were recorded for this album, have not previously been released.

Songs include:

On My Way to You (Rick Paul) - Sometimes it takes having gone down the wrong roads, with plenty of wrong turns along the way, to lead to where we're meant to be in life and love.

Find My Way (Rick Paul) - If the most convenient path through life doesn't lead to fulfillment, it's time to step out of the comfort zone and find a path that does.

I Didn't Think (Mary Lou Sudkamp, Rick Paul) - Important words left unsaid won't be heard and may not be assumed.

I Believe (2019 Remix) (Rick Paul) - When we've lost our bearings it's time to listen to that still small voice within and take the road that leads to making a difference.

What Are We (2019 Remix) (Rick Paul) - Is it just friendship, or is it destined to be more?

Seasons (Derry Jones, Rick Paul) - There is a time for everything in life and love.

Wishing You Well (Rick Paul) - When things go in a polar opposite direction from how you'd intended, and you're left tongue-tied...

Stories (Rick Paul) - Our reality is based on the stories we tell ourselves to justify our actions. Pain emerges when those stories differ markedly from those of loved ones.

Undertow (2019 Remix) (Mary Lou Sudkamp, Rick Paul) - You can try to avoid it, but the undertow of love will sweep you away when you least expect it.

Like a Lover Would (2019 Remix) (Rick Paul) - When logic tells you she's wrong for you, but your heart says otherwise...

You Make Life Easier (2019 Remix) (Rick Paul) - The right person can make this crazy world at least somewhat more sane.

Sweet, Sweet Color of Love (2019 Remix) (Rick Paul) - Mature love seeks the the intuitive vibe of a soul mate rather than the outward signs of romance.
