    hekawi,

    Agree all the way on Good Feelin' to Know. I love all the Poco albums, but Good Feelin' and From the Inside are my favorites.

    Big fan. I got into them via The Buffalo Springfield so naturally I went for the first record Pickin' Up The Pieces. It still has that '60s sound to it, very much connected to Furay's Springfield work like Kind Woman and Child's Claim To Fame. That's my favorite.

    I had the 2fer CD of Good Feeling To Know and From The Inside. Two great albums for sure.

    I saw them in a small club in Michigan in 1970. I was and still am a big Buffalo Springfield fan and always liked Richie Furay.

    I think their best album was Rose of Cimmaron. Liked their earlier music better.

    Definately one of the best bands ever. I've been a fan since way back in the day. Just recently picked up (On Amazon) Poco Live at Columbia Studios, Hollywood 9/30/71. Recorded live at Columbia Studios, this features Paul Cotton and a lot of the material is the stuff fm the DeLIVErin' album but it also features a fair amt of stuff fm their 'From The Inside' LP which was new att. It's really great and highly recommended if you're a Poco fan. Why these guys weren't huge is a mystery to me, and everyone else I know..

    I thought I as the only one who'd vote for Rose of Cimarron, not many people ever mention that one.

    I've also been listening a lot to the newer stuff like "The Wildwood Sessions" and "Bareback at Big Sky". There's a lot to be said for the more "mature" playing of the old songs. Do something for 40 years, and you get pretty darn good at it.

    One of my all-time favourite bands!!

    I wore out my copy of their live album "Deliverin'"(still looking for a digital version) -- regretfully, I never got to see them live...

    I picked up a clean copy of Deliverin in the $1 bin at my favorite used record store a few months ago. Man, what a great album. I never got into them before, but now I know!

    Love Poco. They morphed with different personnel over the years. I still think they are one of the very best bands both musically and vocally ever. Saw them in the 90's with Rusty Young but would have preferred the "early days"
