Critics have already weighed in on a few of the singles on the "Down Memory Lane" CD:
*Music Row''s Robert Oermann reviews "Wichita": "—Dramatic sounding. The descending chords, chiming guitars and stately tempo set up a resonant, throaty baritone who can really deliver the goods. Everything I have heard by this man has been top notch. Surely one of you big labels could use a talent like this."
*It’s very easy to get lost in a Richie Fields song. From the first time the man sings the comparisons to classic stylists likes Ronnie Milsap and Conway Twitty are unavoidable. The comparison to Twitty is particularly strong here on this single as Richie passionately pleads to the woman in his life about how much he wants to make things works. Written by Wynn Varble and Gerald Smith, “Losing You” is a cleverly written song which uses “I’m afraid I’m Losing You” in the verses to play out a conversation on a broken-down cell phone. It’s a new twist on an old theme and when added with Richie Fields’ vocals, the song works. - Matt Bjorke, ROUGHSTOCK
“Richie delivers songs that touch your emotions. His voice is deep and mellow and has a strong maturity to it which translates into believability.” - Cathy Anne, GONE COUNTRY
“He''s an incredible (NO EXAGGERATION) vocalist ... truly an "undiscovered" talent...but what I ENVY (YES - I''m turning green here) is Richie''s vocal range. I swear he sings his way through two-and-a-half octaves and that is ASTONISHING!” - John Lewis, RODEO ATTITUDE
"The crisp riffs and melodic harmonies throughout ''Losing You'' flow magnificently, and Richie''s emotion is pouring through his vocals. The guy has a great voice. This is a top-notch track, one that SHOULD be playing at radio everywhere." - STEELTOWN ROCK
Written by Chip Martin and Jan Linville, "When You Love Someone That Much" features a progressive rhythm section and the production quality is immediately evident as the crack session band provides Richie with a groove from which to sing the inspirational lyric about the true power of love, be it a mother, a father or God. It''s a theme that has proven to be popular with audiences and with J. Gary Smith''s steady hand guiding the production, this single certainly fits right in within what is currently played on country radio. In fact, Richie''s emotive baritone vocal really shines and there''s no reason that he couldn''t get this song to rise up the charts the same way that other indie stars have recently. - Matt Bjorke, ROUGHSTOCK
