I think you will dig this. I did:
I did. Never heard or remember Paul Cotton. THis must be before or after Rusty Young?
thats Rusty on the slide & steel. he was with Poco from start to what is the effective finish of the band. Cotton replaced Jim Massina in about 1970, somewhere after Deliverin' came out (it was very confusing for us Poco fans). they were still good & I liked some songs but it wasn't the same. in the day I looked just like Ritchie except a bit younger. well... thats what people said anyway
After Jimmy Messina, yes THAT Jimmy Messina! And before Richie Furay finally left.
Excellent video! Thanks for posting.
As @dogmeat said, Cotton replaced Jim Messina and Poco was different. But pretty great still. Check out the first Poco record with Cotton, called From The Inside. Outstanding Poco.
Great band regardless of all the different musicians that came and went throughout the years.
Though they still remained popular, I “left” when Jim Messina did.
The guitar playing level of the band suffered mightily with JM’s departure.
I think Paul Cotton was in a duo called Illinois Speed Press before Poco.
that "Beat Club" theme song might find its way into the setlist for my boogaloo band
This is OK, but the live version from Deliverin' LP ( still with Jim Messina in the band) smokes this!
This sounds a little clunky during the break.
Great vocals by these guys!
Two POCO threads in one week!
I just ordered Poco's 1st (2) albums
( Pickin' Up The Pieces and Poco) on a special two-fer CD package offer at Amazon
Thanks to these threads, what the heck!
I was into Poco back in the day for sure.
Amazing how all those players mixed into bands like Poco, The Byrds, The Eagles, CSN&Y, Stone Pony's and more!
Quiet Tim Schmidt (Eagles bassist) had a great voice when he sang:
Great season for Country Rock!
The Poco Crazy Eyes album is really good it got air play in the mid-70s the title track with Richie Furay and Flying Solo are fantastic songs
Also the song sitting on a fence
Love the original lineup. Randy Meisner was an original member but bailed before the release of the 1st album.
That may be the only white GIbson ES-355 I have ever seen. Personal opinion, but I don’t care for some of the licks that Young hits on that dobro in the first cut above.
The shot at 2:11 in the video someone put together for this song would have me going back home to give that anoTher try, too!
I think Alex Lifeson of Rush rocked a white 355, too.
I agree they ain’t common!
Man, if I could just get my Tele to sound like that...
I have Fender OV's in a Tele and have been thinking about putting together another Telecaster. Wonder what Fender made pickups would get close to this sound?
So he did, Bill! Thanks for jogging my memory. I have set 9ne of the A. Lifeson Cs 355 guitars, unlike Furay’s guitar, which does not have a volume as far as I can tell, Lifeson’s did...and so does the RI of his guitar. The one I saw had the volume almost beh8nd the first fret area....way too far down the neck for a proper volume, ime.
Back to the program.....
