CD Reviews

Some of Poco's all-time best pop/rock songs
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Ghost town" title song is one of rock's true unknown classics; a mighty song. The rest of the album is nice soft rock; not Poco at its best, but still very enjoyable. "Inamorata" probably shocked some Poco fans. It has little common with "old" country-rock Poco sound. Instead, it's a brave dive into modern pop music. The songs are as good as always; a very underrated album very much wort listening!"
Paul Cotton becomes an artist

"What listeners failed to realize at the time these albums were released (what few that paid attention) is that Paul Cotton, as a songwriter and recording artist, was outgrowing the oppressive country-rock leanings of Poco. It's on these tracks that he really became a truly great artist of the rock era.Cotton's songwriting reflects a male's romantic heart better than anyone I have ever heard (I'm a musician and recording artist myself, albeit not close to Mr. Cotton's stature). His odes to love on tunes such as "Days Gone By" (incredible arrangement here) are so obviously heartfelt that they leave the realm of pop music and become true art, professionally crafted but always earnest and emotionally riveting.I wholeheartedly recommend the "Inamorata" portion of this CD (though "Ghost Town" is fine as well), and also Cotton's only released solo CD to date, "Changing Horses" on the Sisapa label (extremely hard to find). This is some of Poco's finest work, and if you can stand songs of sorrow, lust, and yearning instead of hoedowns, you owe it to our self to check the tracks out ... cheap at THREE TIMES the price.And one more point: Rusty Young isn't in the Guitar Player Hall of Fame for nothing!"
POCO Purists May Not Like It
C. Kuschel-Toerber | Frankfurt, Hessen | 04/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Two complete (and sadly overlooked) albums on CD - this great POCO release is well worth checking out. Recorded in 1982 and 1984 these two albums highlight the craftmenship of POCO's original members Rusty Young and Paul Cotton.While singer/songwriter and steel guitar player Rusty Young shines on some wonderful ballads ("This Old Flame" is great and "When Worlds Collide" should have been a huge hit), singer & guitarist Paul Cotton heads into rockier waters here. The bitter track "Days Gone by" will just blow your ears out, it's THAT good. Not all of the 20 tracks are in the same league (Brenda X is plainly awful and two or three other songs don't go anywhere), but that leaves you with at least 17 Counrtry/Rock masterpieces.POCO purists will probably hate both original albums and snub at this CD, but anybody looking for some great music should not hesitate to order this bargain!"
