This totally brings out the Poco-Moody connection. I can hear both groups doing many of each other’s songs and doing them well. Imagine Poco doing See-Saw and the Moodies doing Rose Of Cimarron...

Fred, I'm sure your comments are not lies. It's just that as we age, our brains are SO full of the incredible amount of knowledge we have accumulated there's sometimes just not room for it all in the same place! Laughing

Growing up in Rochester NY we had a couple local stations, but WKBW in Buffalo was preferred. At night, I could get Big 10 WCFL from Chicago which was somehow superior to other stations, or so it seemed. Of course these were rock stations. I seem to remember occasionally listening to CKLW but it was not a regular for me.

After Pinder left they did the album LONG DISTANCE VOYAGER. The song IN MY WORLD had pedal steel prominently featured. BJ Cole played very close to Sneaky Pete in style on it. https://youtu.be/o1yCRF16wwk

In the early seventies in England there were quite a few bands that made County-Rock. Starry Eyed And Laughing, Moonrider and Unicorn and many more. BJ often played on their records.

Dave, your comment “The commonalities with the Moody Blues were great melodies, great harmony singing, tight instrumentation” I believe is that “something”. We’re talking about really well-crafted songs and delivery. I still am blown away by the composition and instrumental skill on the first album. Richie and Jimmy really hit the nail on the head (if only the mix was a little beefier).
Hate to rub it in for those of you who never saw Poco, but the first time I saw them was at Filmore West on Jimmy’s last night with them. Stellar vocals and playing! Such energy and joy! Last song was El Tonto..... with Rusty ending up with his steel tipped on end at the edge of the stage and a full band frenzy. Sad to find the great Procol Harum could hardly follow them.
Cat’s out of the bag.... I love these guys.

Joachim, thanks for mentioning these other bands.... I never knew. Starry Eyed and Laughing really impressed me. Poole does a convincing McGuinn, and McGeeny very Clarence White. I love discovering gems like this!

Thanks Mike for checking out Starry Eyed And Laughing. The other band I was mentioning, Unicorn, was supported financially by David Gilmour who also produced this track:

They were great live. I saw them in Boston, at the Music Hall, when they were recording Deliverin'. Everything was very tight musically, but still with a high energy level.
