Morning Song – Love Is Alive

August 3, 2016

What was Gary Wright thinking? It’s pretty simple, really. He was thinking all these new keyboard synthesizers are really cool.

And he wasn’t wrong. (Infatuated perhaps, but not wrong.) In the mid-1970s there was an explosion of new musical sounds across all sorts of genres as musicians and producers tried to figure out what they had with these new toys they could play with.

With the exception of Jim Keltner’s drumming, “Love Is Alive”—like the rest of Wright’s Dreamweaver album—is all synths. That—plus Wright’s immersion in Indian religious traditions via his longstanding friendship with George Harrison—was enough to take the song to #2 in the summer of 1976.
