Wow, really cool! Thank you, super-sleuth Delilah!

I wonder who Richie Walker is/was. EDIT: apparently he was a singer in The Knickerbockers (1967-70)

Interesting that Alan Brackett worked with Stu Phillips on movie music in the late 60s, as did Randy and The Poor.

Yes! I noted the Stu Phillips connection too. Also interesting is the Peanut Butter Conspiracy played Hoot Night at The Troubadour. I recall that review of Poco I posted in the Randy at The Troubadour thread mentioned the PBC. I'll have to re-post it some time since Photobucket nixed it. I wonder if Randy or Alan remembered that. Also, Richie Walker was on the "Breakaway" track with Jeff Pocaro, who later wrote "Walk of Life" which Randy recorded. Small world!

EDIT: actually it was Jeff's brother Steve who wrote "Walk of Life"

Sorry, you lost me with the "Breakaway" reference - who did that song?

Sorry, NMB, I don't remember the details of "Breakaway"; it was played during the podcast and there were different acts being mentioned--Barbara Robison, The Ashes, Young Swingers, etc not to mention the different songs played. I just happen to catch the part about Richie Walker and Jeff Porcaro.

Oh OK, one of the Brackett-related acts. I didn't listen after the Randy part, though I did like the music. PBC reminded me a bit of the Mamas & Papas at times.

While it's not my favorite album that he's done, I like it. I can see the objections to "It Hurts to Be in Love" but I enjoy his version.

My three favorites: "Daughter of the Sky", "Lonesome Cowgirl", and "Heartsong."

Me too! When I heard Barbara Robison's voice, I thought she sounded like Mama Cass Elliot.

I love all of those. I think he could have had a hit single if the label had supported him more. "I Really Want You Here Tonight" sounds like it had hit potential, it was very radio-friendly to my ears. Just the sort of mellow, romantic thing that was popular in '78.

I think he could've had a hit single if someone competent would've produced the album. Flat production really hurts potential radio play. Now, if whomever was responsible for ONE MORE TIME produced the first album, that would've been great!
