Pickin' Up The Pieces album for sale by Poco was released Jul 18, 1995 on the Legacy label. PICKIN' UP THE PIECES is the bridge between early country-rock hybrids and the more commercially successful sound of the Eagles and their mellow ilk. Pickin' Up The Pieces CD music Formed by ex-Buffalo Springfielders Richie Furay and Jim Messina with steel guitarist Rusty Young and drummer George Grantham, Poco didn't have the ego squabbles and differing artistic visions that sank Springfield or the Byrds. As a result, PICKIN' UP THE PIECES is a far more cohesive and self-assured blend of folk, country, bluegrass, Beatlesque pop, and rock than those more explosive bands could ever manage. Pickin' Up The Pieces CD music contains a single disc with 14 songs. ...See Full Description

||Proud of those pieces|
I was on some stupid church retreat when I discovered Poco. There were four of us packed into a small motel room. I had been talked into bringing my record player for sanities sake. On the first day a partner in crime and myself skipped classes and headed out into the world. Coming up on a hole in the wall record shop. At the time we were all about Nazz and Traffic. I was raised on Buffalo Springfield and was well aware of RIchie Furay and Jim Messina. Country Rock mutally exclusive? Turns out no way. From "It's a Good Morning" to "Tommorrow". This delicate little lp just stole my heart. Rusty Young my lord no other steel player has come close to his accomplishments. Get this CD get their 2nd simply titled Poco and be sure to give a listen to DeLIVErin'. You won't be disappointed unless you can't smile and listen to rock at the same time.

Richie Furay and Jim Messina pick up the pieces of Buffalo Springfield and help usher in the era of country rock (somewhat in advance of The Eagles and others given such credit.) This was a case of "hippies" doing country better than the country guys were. And it still sounds great!

||Pick this one up!|
A wonderful debut from the band that many credit with pioneering country rock. The foreword, sung solely by Richie Furay, sets the tone for this collection. "What A Day" is a bouncy, catchy number; it will inevitably improve your mood. Other strong numbers are the psychedelic-country "Calico Lady," the simple acoustic beauty of "First Love," the enthusiasm of the title track, which sums up what Poco is all about, and the instrumental virtuosity displayed by Rusty Young and Jimmy Messina on "Grand Junction." Messina's "Oh Yeah" has a deliciously lazy feel, while "Just In Case It Happens, Yes Indeed" and "Consequently So Long" feature the trademark high harmonies for which this band is so well known. Great musicianship, writing, and singing abounds. I highly recommend that you pick up "Pickin' Up The Pieces"!
