ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The new 2018 Robert Larrabee cd "High Water" is here, enjoy this tribute to Classic Country, Pop, Rock & Roll, and Gospel. The single High Water was written as a tribute to the late great Glen campbell, the song tells Glens story and you can hear the Glen Campbell sound in this beautiful Nashville recorded tune. Glen was quoted as saying " When I got to L.A and started playing with those studio musicians I was floating on High Water. Larrabee knew that had to be the hook and wrote the song in literally a few hours.

Other songs such as "Bible in His Hand" came from a story Robert heard Marty Stewart tell, about how Johnny Cash was buried with a bible in his hand, but would probably be remembered more for his young rebellious years. In this song you'll hear the low base and guitar sounds that will take you back to the Johnny Cash era, while you listen to Larrabee sing you the story of the man in black.

The Old Place is a Garth Brooks inspired tune that tells the story of a farmer as he takes his last ride around the old homestead before it is torn down. An emotional story that rings true in this new age of commercial farming, and one that will tug at your heart strings as the old farmer watches as the wrecking ball takes the last of his past from him.

Days of Rock & Roll is a nostalgic look back at the 1950's when Elvis was just tearing it up and Rock & Roll was brand new. This tune with it's modern yet still classic sound features Larrabee's voice at it's smoothest with just little bit of that Elvis like snarl in the right places. This tune just makes you want to get up dance that is if you know how to sock hop.

The pop tune Alone Anymore is relateable to anyone that has been through the loss of a partner and then the emergence of a new one. In this song the woman is a young widow and the new man trying to court her is understandable at a loss as to how he can make her smile again. Hence the line in the song "I Don't Know What to do, I don't know what to say, but I can tell you one thing for sure, You don't have to be alone anymore" Written in the style of Bruno Mars. This song proves that Larrabee can not only write in any style but also sing in any style, as delivers raw emotion on this tune as only he could.

The song Gonna Be Alright was written as Larrabee sat in a laundry mat in Las Vegas watching his wife folding cloths "I'm just sitting here in the Laundromat watching the cloths spinning dry, looking at you folding things, makes me smile and I don't no why, and then the rest just flowed from there I wrote the tune in about 20 minutes." The chorus reminding us, "through all the ups and downs and some words that cut like a knife I'm just glad somehow we knew, everything is gonna be alright" written in a modern country easy listening to style it's sure to make you smile.

Country Boy Like Me, is a song about a country boys who spends the summer with a city girl who is on spring vacation she tells him she'll be back, but that never happens. Every spring he goes the small town bus depot and watches all the college kids getting off the bus but the girl is never one of them. The song writing here is beautiful "I seek your face in every crowd, at the bus stop every spring, drown my sorrows in cheap whiskey get drunk enough that I can't see,the picture in my head of you, painted on the ceiling of my mind, that only I can ever see of a girl like you with a country boy like me" one of the best Larrabee written tunes yet.

The tune Made My Baby Cry! Larrabee freely admits he wrote for Conway Twitty " Man in my show I still do some Conway songs and people still love them, and I love singing them. So I thought man wouldn't it be great to hear a new Conway song, so one day my wife and I had an argument and she sat down on the stairs and started crying. Well I knew I had to sorry and make it up to her, and that's when this song just starts pouring out of me" The tune with it's classic country sound is sure to be a favorite for anyone that loves classic country.

Like a lot of country singers, Larrabee has a strong spiritual side.This part of his musical personality is expressed via “Thy Will Be Done.” A beautiful country gospel song that you might think you've heard in a church somewhere. The vocal is just inspiring, and the Nashville instrumentation is exquisite, for believers or none believers it's definitely a relaxing and beautiful song.
With many more strongly written and superbly performed songs on this album it shows Larrabee can not only perform in any style he likes but can also write in any style as well.
