Just a little more Poco...

Poco is one of those bands I've always loved. That country-rock thing that started with Gram Parsons and the Flying Burrito Brothers, Buffalo Springfield and, to an extent, the Lovin' Spoonful, found its perfection with Paul, Richie, George, Rusty and Tim (IMHO). Rose of Cimmaron was released in '76, just after their switch from Epic to ABC, and it was the launching ground for two of their best records ever, Indian Summer and Legend. (Trivia: "Legend" was the last Lp released on ABC Records prior to their absorption by MCA, and "Heart Of The Night" has the distinction of being the first single released on MCA from any ABC Lp.)

This is a fantastic record with some really great Timothy B. Schmitt songs. It holds up well after all this time... Worth seeking out.
