    Schmidt replaced Randy Meisner in both Poco and The Eagles.

    There's just something about Poco's albums that I like. I find that for Prog, I need to do active listening, but for working around the house and stuff, and wanting some background music, I reach for Poco a lot.

    Spun Good Feelin' to Know again last night inspired by this thread. What an excellent album. Duff cover, but excellent tunes.

    I saw 'em second billed to Yes in '73. (Albert Hammond opened.) Can't remember much of anything about their set, I'm afraid. I think they're one of those bands I can appreciate more in retrospect than I did at the time.

    I saw them in the 70s at Carnegie Hall without Messina. People were standing up the whole time. I opened for them in the mid 80s
    at The San Jose Cabaret and saw them a year or two ago with Messina and Furay. Great band!

    On Bicentennial Day I crossed the border to Niagara Falls NY for a Stills Young concert. Going there I had no idea who the opener would be but I was thinking that Poco would be good. Ta daa, it turned out to be Poco. Too bad the cavernous convention centre was a brutal venue.

    It's a casino now...probably still brutal but now it's brutal to gamblers.

    i thought they were good but for some reason i just didn't like richie furay. don't know why and still don't like them i did like their couple of hits they had but thats as far as it got for me. the Eagles were for me just country enough but without being too "real" country wise.That worked for me so i liked Eagles bettern Poco back in the day considering they, the eagles, were session players who worked together on a linda ronsadt album. they were like the country folk version of Toto. lol

    I was never a big fan but a couple years ago we had POCO do the New Hope-Lambertville Winterfest Concert. Rusty was the front man and totally amazed me with his playing and showmanship. If you get a chance to see him live with or without POCO, do so.

    I loved the Buffalo Springfield during their brief stint, and still enjoy the psychedelic country-folk rock that they gave us, and the later off-shoots from them, whether bands or solos. I forget, but sometime in the early 70's, maybe 1971, Poco opened a show at The Long Beach Arena in California. I forgot who the headline band was, but won't ever forget how kiss-ass Poco were. It was the original band, with Furey and Messina, and besides playing their own music, they even threw in a few Springfield songs. I still see it in my head. A thrilling show and fond memories.

    Not a fan of country rock/bluegrass but for some reason, I really like Rocky Mountain Breakdown. Aside from Good Feeling To Know, another really nice song is Rose of Cimarron.

    I thought poqueto was Spanish for little? Anyways, I found Legend from Poco in the discount bin at Best Buy. I know it's probably not their best album, but I got it because two of the three Poco songs(Crazy Love and Legend) are on there. A Good Feeling To Know would be the other Poco song that I know. I listen to a station called 95.5 KLOS, and a former of theirs(Jim Ladd) used to play the song Legend on his late night show. Btw, did you all know that the late, great Phil Hartman designed the cover for Legend? Prog connection:Poco's bassist at the time, Charlie Harrison, used to be in Judas Jump. From what I've read, Legend is only a Poco album by name(it was supposed to be released as a Cotton-Young album). Btw, I really love me some Crazy Love.

    Poco means little. Poquito is the diminutive form of poco, meaning "very little."

    Hartman also did the covers for Poco's Seven and Cantamos as well as many other rock-related stuff including America's Greatest Hits and the CSN logo. The 'running horse' image has been used on a number of Poco albums.

    I am currently enjoying some Crazy Love on headphones, and the vocal harmonies are truly sublime.
