Concept: "The River" atakes the listener on a journey through various aspects of life on the river. "Ol' Man River" pays homage to the working man while "Sweet Georgia Brown" lets the audience party with the nightlife in a river town. "Shall We Gather at the River" is a more spiritual take on the river experience that leads to the the closer "I'll Fly Away".
