This glorious pop album, originally released in 1970, makes its long-overdue CD debut here. Named after the mysterious duo of Richard Atkins and Richard Manning, its beautifully crafted songs and glorious melodies have assured it an ever-growing cult reputation. The sleeve tells us these two songwriters are “as different as the sun and the moon in their daily lives, and yet who can sing songs that go directly to the heart of the matter, with a seemingly single mind and voice.” Featuring top-notch backing from musicians such as Drake Levin (Paul Revere & the Raiders), Larry Knechtel (Bread), Mark Tulin (The Electric Prunes) and Rusty Young (Poco), it’s bound to appeal to all fans of high-quality early ‘70s U.S. pop-rock….~


Richard Twice isn’t the name of one man; it’s the title of a 1970 album recorded by two men named Richard. (That’d be Richard Atkins and Richard Manning.) Fans of classic folk-rock duos with sunny harmonies, like Brewer & Shipley or Simon & Garfunkel, will find a comforting familiarity with Richard Twice. But what sets this album apart is that Atkins and Manning were backed by the legendary Los Angeles A-list session group The Wrecking Crew. Richard Twice proves to be one of the better 21st-century reissues. It opens with “Generation ‘70,” where Atkins and Manning sing congruously over the simmering buzz of psychedelic fuzz guitar and groovy Hammond organ. The band really locks in on the following “My Love Bathes in Silence” and especially with “What Makes Me Love You Like I Do,” where a buoyant horn section segues from a peripheral presence to an upfront one without upstaging the duo. The lilting “If I Knew You Were the One” is the album’s standout, sounding like a string-swept sibling to Linda Perhacs’ similarly dreamy recordings….~

“This is a virtually perfect pop album, the kind of thing that would have ruled the charts if the wind had been blowing the right way that month” – The Acid Archives
