+ 1/2 Stars...Another Solid Album From Furay & Co.

"On this 1972 release of eight originals and one cover tune (an arguably superior version of the Buffalo Springfield's "Go and Say Goodye" written by Stephen Stills), Poco put together one of its best albums. Band members Richie Furay, Paul Cotton and Timothy B Schmit each contribute excellent songs. Highlights include Cotton's lovely "Ride the Country" and Schmit's achingly beautiful "I Can See Everything." But it's still Furay who steals the show with the rollicking "And Settlin' Down," the gorgeous "Sweet Lovin'" and what should have been a monster hit, "A Good Feelin' to Know." Why Poco never had the kind of commercial success of the Eagles (whose debut was released just months before A Good Feelin' to Know) is a mystery. Fans of country-rock will want to add this to their collection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
Prismatic harmonies , glistening guitars, no nonsense rock

"As an adolescent in '72/'73, this album forced me to re-think my musical preferences. I had been a "Deep Purple - Humble Pie" head (still am to some degree), but all this changed with "AGFTK". For those of you who believe this album was under-promoted/under acclaimed, you are correct. For those of you who believe this album strayed from the typically languid California rock blue-print of the time, again you are right, and therein lies the album's lack of critical mass and ultimately its lack of mass appeal. It confused many of the band's traditional fandom who moved on to the Eagles/Rondstadt. I remain as equally enthralled with this music today as I was back in the Spring of '73 when I first heard it. The vocals are breathtaking, the song writing is inspired and the guitars pick up where the Byrds should have gone. Special mentions - the powerful & exuberant opening track: "And settling down", the wrenching, moody and restrained "Restrain", the Byrd-like "Ride the Country", the impossibly catchy re-make of the Stills classic "Go and say Goodbye" and of course the title track, which you can still hear occasionally as a lost classic on your local classic rock station. This is the one album to which most classic rock stations do not devote sufficient airplay. Hey K-Rock, lose the Born in the USA and start playing some real music. This CD is a strong buy."

"A GOOD FEELIN' TO KNOW is Poco's best album ever. Most of the songs are great, and the singing and instrumental work is phenomenal. This album proves that there was more to California country-rock in 1972 than the Eagles. It's a shame that this album didn't sell more copies when it was first released."
