More info

The album title refers to the breakup of Buffalo Springfield: the Buffalo’s last album, Last Time Around, released after the band’s breakup and largely a compilation of individually-recorded pieces, features a fledgling Poco on one of Richie Furay’s tracks. Curiously, the new group pursued a rather different (though groundbreaking) direction with their country-tinged rock, and would only return to making Springfield-like music three years later. Anyhow, this first album by Richie Furay and Poco sees the group stretching their wings and already playing (and capturing the spirit of the American West’s countryside) in a way that, as far as I can tell, no one did before, or has since. Poco is a joyful group, and that joy & brightness shines through every note, even in the sad songs. There is a whole lot that’s deeply satisfying about Poco’s particular blend of country and rock: Rusty Young’s steel guitar, George Grantham’s speedy drumming, Richie’s lead vocals and the untouchable harmonies provided by the rest of the band, and above all Richie’s songwriting. Aside from Rusty’s triumphant instrumental Grand Junction, Richie is the sole or primary songwriter in all the other thirteen songs. Some are better than others, but that’s only a matter of some being great and others downright phenomenal. The title track has one of the best melodies anyone has ever penned, and most of the other songs are also very, very strong. Poco would only get better with time, but most bands would kill for a debut this great.
