“Max Reif's newest release, Love's River, is a well of many waters and a caravan of seemingly countless tales. It tells of the soul's journey through longing, desperation, inquisition, and into fleeting glances of ecstasy on the path to the Beloved.” – from a review by Doug Stalker
Love's River is a collection of original songs by Max with one stunning cover of a Leonard Cohen song, If It Be Your Will. The folk art style of Max's painting on the front cover perfectly mirrors the feel of the music – elemental and strong; full of feeling and innocence.
Beautifully produced by Cliff Hackford with the accompaniment of John Ware on electric and acoustic guitar; Tim Oakes on keyboards; Al Payson on bass; Abigail Albaugh on fiddle and violin; Cliff himself on percussion, and Max on harmonica, guitar and vocals.
