The Poco concert was out of this world! They played all the hits and favorites, like Crazy Love, Rose Of Cimarron, Keep On Tryin', etc. Heart of the Night was AMAZING! They put an interesting twist on the studio version, and Jack Sundrud sang it just as good as Paul Cotton. Keep On Tryin' wasn't really the same without Timothy, but it sounded pretty darn good. I especially liked Pickin' Up the Pieces, because the end of the song went right into Grand Junction, which came as a very pleasant surprise to me. Grand Junction, for anyone who's not familiar with it, is an instrumental "jam" song. It's really cool with the acoustics and slide.

Rusty Young was even better than I had imagined he'd be. His dobro, lap slide, etc. skills blew me away. I've always admired his musical aptitude, so it was great to see him perform live! He is also a funny guy... He was cracking jokes the whole concert, and lots of jokes were about the Eagles. He talked about Timothy quite a bit actually! Before they started playing one of the songs, Rusty said, "This was recorded when Timothy B. Schmit was with Poco. Now he's in some other band..."

Firefall played after Poco, and they were very good too. I'm not too familiar with their music, but I know a few of their songs. I'm very happy to say that in their encore, they played Rocky Mountain Way!

Sounds like a good time, EF. Rose of Cimarron is my very favorite Poco song. I'm sure I'd enjoy it live, although I can't imagine loving it as much as the Paul Cotton and Timothy version.

Bumping up the only Poco thread I could find...
I need y'all's opinion...on the best Poco compilation (best of/GH)...I was at the used CD/book store today and had The Essential Poco in my hand, all set to purchase, but talked myself out of it due to the absence of "Rose of Cimarron"...help!!!!
