    I bought the album round Christmas time and it's amazed me. Tony Rich was frickin brilliant. Such an innovative sound, a lot of his stuff is like nothing I've heard before. The album's a bloody classic with Nobody knows, Missin you, Hey Blue, Grass is Green, Ghost, Leavin... shits off the hook. The craziest thing that it's all done by Tony Rich...Album booklet says "produced, written, arranged and performed by Tony Rich." "All instruments, vocals and programming performed by Tony Rich." How'd this cat ever fade away when he does it all himself?

    Nobody Knows has always been my favorite, though for a while I thought it was actually babyface. Anyone have Tony Rich's later albums? They tight too?

    After hearing Words, I had made it my favorite album. Then I bought Birdseye and said to hell with it, I'll just say Tony Rich is my favorite artist. So I def agree with you there man, this cat's a genius and way too slept on. Some of these tracks are unbelievable. And to think he wrote, produced and did it all.

    The babyface version did you download that too? I downloaded it awhile ago. Somebody labeled it wrong cuz they also thought it was babyface.

    No, it is just a he, it's Tony Rich. And the song was never actually done by Babyface, it's just a common misconception as the sound and style of the song were very similar to that of babyface. So if you downloaded a version that said babyface, it was just labeled wrong.

    If you're interested in checking out more of his stuff, some of his best tracks IMHO are:

    Grass is Green (Words)
    Missin you (Words)
    No Time Soon (Birdseye)
    If You're An Angel (Birdseye)
    My Stomach Hurts (Birdseye)
    Don't Call Me (Ressurected)
    Travelin Alone (Ressurected)

    As for Pictures, I still haven't had the chance to sit down and listen to it. One day...
