The Way It Is is Bruce Hornsby and the Range's debut album, released by RCA Records in 1986. Led by its hit title track, the album went on to achieve multi-platinum status and helped the group to win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Other hits from the album include "Mandolin Rain" and "Every Little Kiss". Huey Lewis features on harmonica and vocals on "Down the Road Tonight". Lewis also co-produced the song, along with the tracks "The Long Race" and "The River Runs Low".

Hornsby signed with RCA because they offered him creative freedom. They were rewarded when this song and the album became huge hits. The conservative radio host Sean Hannity used an instrumental portion of this song as his show's theme for many years. Hornsby, a liberal democrat, had vastly different political views, but there was nothing he could do about Hannity using the song as long as royalties were paid. Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 7th, 1986 'The Way It Is" by Bruce Hornsby and the Range peaked at (for 1 week) on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; it had entered the chart on Sept. It also reached (for 2 weeks) on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart and was (again for 2 weeks) on the Canadian RPM Top singles chart. Paul Marlo from Perth, Australia, -Beautiful, timeless, an old high school reminder.

Said, hey little boy you can't go where the others go 'Cause you don't look like they do Said, hey old man how can you stand To think that way, did you really think about it Before you made the rules? He said, "Son, that's just the way it is Some things will never change That's just the way it is Ah but don't you believe them"

1887 The Way of Salvation in The Lutheran Church by Rev G H Gerberding. Prairieland Antiques. Measures 9 by 12 inches; has 56 very clean, crisp pages with no writing. Covers do have surface wear but no tears. Songs with lyrics and music included: On The Western Skyline Every Little Kiss Mandolin Rain The Long Race The Way It Is Down The Road Tonight The Wild Frontier The River Runs Low The Red Plains. Great vintage music collectible and fabulous find for musicians who play vintage rock. If you were the pending.

On the contrary, the record sounds like the culmination of a band's efforts over many years. The group has a distinct sound of its own, often led by Hornsby's bright piano chords and elastic tenor, with cohesive and evocative arrangements; there is new age music here, as well as jazz and country, and the mixture is presented naturally by musicians who seem to have been playing with each other for some time. Similarly, the songwriting has its own flavor. Hornsby was no teenage neophyte when he made it, having kicked around the music business and gotten into his thirties, and the band includes such veterans as David Mansfield, who may be remembered as a member of Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder troupe and the Alpha Band, as well as being a film composer.

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). The Way It Is. "Please retry". Bruce Hornsby is now best known for his stints playing keyboards with the Grateful Dead and for his involvement in such post-Dead projects as the Further Festival.
