GS - The ultimate collection has RoC, Heart of the night, and Indian Summer on it. http://tinyurl.com/ccyjnft

Those three songs (plus 'Keep on tryin'') are on The Essential collection 1975-1982. http://tinyurl.com/cf98aru

Which is not to be confused with the similarly-titled album 'Essential Poco'. http://tinyurl.com/ctu99xm
You might find it helpful to read the review (probably the first one shown) by Arthur D. O'Brien for this album.

I meant Gold. I apologise. I saw the cover of Legend, thought it looked like Gold, & posted. Gold is the one I have. OOPS.

@ Zelda - Of course you had to have it - it's got quite a lot of 'Tim' songs on there.

@FP - Wow! Now I know why you posted what at first seemed a totally random album choice. You really need to check the writing on those albums.

Thanks, y'all...I know what to look for at my favorite CD store (or eventually order from Amazon )

But see, look at the artwork for Legend and Gold...and Legacy to a point (close-up of the horse)...very easy to get the titles mixed up there!
And BTW...the artist that created that iconic horse logo...none other than comedian Phil Hartman, in his pre-SNL career as a graphic artist

Well, yes. I made a mistake & I said so. I would also say however, not to excuse myself, but the title 'Legend' to me does sound as if it could denote a compilation. Gold & Legend have basically the same artwork & I didn't check further. Also I looked at Amazon when I should have looked at my own CD.

I'm sorry, FP. I didn't express myself very well when I said

By 'you' I meant anyone who was thinking of buying the album(s), not 'you' in particular. (Perhaps 'people' would have been a better word to have written.) Though I would have thought the

would have implied that I wasn't surprised that you'd made a mistake, and therefore wasn't criticising you.

It's a bit like Barry Manilow albums - there are several imaginatively titled either Barry Manilow or Manilow and you have to look at the covers or the songs to know which one people mean!

Help me out here--- did Ultimate Collection come out on vinyl? I have quite a few Poco albums and I know one is a vinyl of a Poco compilation that's a 2 album set, gatefold and seems like a kind of plain brown cover. I'd go out in the garage and go through the albums but it's to freaking cold and I'm barefoot right now.

I do have the Essential on cd also.
