Re: Official Poco Thread
Like I said, great thread. Thanks!
For all you Poco fans.................
They are working on a new album (which I believe will be titled "All Fired Up") to be released sometime this year (2012)
Rusty Young giving a taste of a new song "Roses and Regrets"
the 4 seconds or so that was played sounded like the usual good ol' Poco to me Do you know what the line up will be, Magic?
I am not sure, Eberg. Their website gives a lineup list from 2010, and I am assuming it will be:
Jack Sundrud -
Rusty Young -
Mike Webb -
George Lawrence -
In the website store they are selling an image of "current lineup" which is the above listed members.

MP, yeah one of the best 'country rock/soft rock' bands out of California in the 70's, they actually got there just ahead of the Eagles and they made some great albums, I have three I think - Head Over Heels, Rose of Cimarron, and Crazy Eyes.
Timothy B Schmidt of the Eagles was with them before he joined the Eagles.
I think 'Rose of Cimarron' would probably be my favourite Poco song, one of those truly great infectious summer songs that sound amazing on the car radio/CD player on a hot day with the roof wide open - as a kid in England I recall the great John Peel on BBC Radio 1 used to play 'RoC' all the time and he was a huge fan of Poco, which I always thought was a bit odd as most of the other stuff he loved back in those days was punk and new wave stuff, and a lot of reggae as I recall, but here it is...love this video too ...
