    Thanks, many great songs posted here, I have some listening to do.
    Thought I'd contribute another one from the Legacy album.

    It's slick, very 80's, written by Richard Marx, and the working title was probably "Take it to the limit pt. II".
    But I still can't help liking it. And it's Randy, which kind of makes the song even more sad to hear.

    Just because it got some radio play and was easy ( easier) to play, my first band , Sunset ( college Erie, PA 1979) actually played the song " Legend" from the album Legend.

    it had a cool muscular hook ( in E) and I sang harmony on the chorus.

    We SO wanted to to be a country‐rock/Southern‐rock band, so we covered Poco, PPL, America, Eagles, Allmans, Marshall Tucker...
    But we were very basic- just learning how to really play, but it was fun! ( but we also did Stairway To Heaven, Ha!)

    ** Very cool to have a Poco thread, bringing back memories of youth, learning to play, and great music.

    - we also did the Poco version of JJ Cale's " Magnolia" - just remembered!

    Amazed nobody has mentioned "Cantamos" which is their best album IMO.

    First song Sagebrush Serenade kicks a$$. Rusty rips it up. Harmonies sharp as a knife.
