Poco youTube with Timothy B Schmit

Poco – Rose of Cimarron with Eagles bass player

Poco was a band that had some brilliant musicians over the years.  If you look closely at the bass player in this youtube video you’ll notice it’s none other than the Eagles bass player Timothy B Schmit, not only a bass player but has always sung tremendous harmony.  Some of you may be familiar with Poco, if not think ‘musical legends’.  Rusty Young, Richie Furay, Randy Meisner,  Jim Messina from Loggins and Messina, Paul Cotton all passed through Poco.  Mi favourite albums were  Head Over Heels and Blue and Gray.  I guess many people have wondered why they never had the same status as Crosby Stills Nash and Young, , Eagles or America in the seventies, their contribution was equal to any of the other acoustic country rock bands.  They get my vote.

NOTE:  As one kind reader pointed out, Paul Cotton and Rusty Young are still performing with Poco.

    Wow!!! That was fantastic. Thanks. Just saw Timothy a few weeks ago here in NJ with the Eagles. He still is adorable.

    David

    The guitar vocals is Paul Cotton.

    The album came out in 1976, unfortunately I can’t date the performance.

    My favourite Poco album is Head Over Heels.
    I’m surprised that this band was not more successful

    This group was overlooked during their time and that’s a shame. Timothy’s voice is one of the best and most recognizable in music today. RW

    Regarding, “Poco was a band that had some brilliant musicians over the years”. Poco *is* a band, and Cotton and Young have not “passed through” Poco. They are still there.
