Poco ~ Soaring Like Eagles, 2007 original CDr, Limited Edition / Not For Sale

2007 original New Braunfels Historical Records #037 Limited Edition CDr pressing, Numbered #1 of only 2 copies made.  Recorded live at Princeton University, Princeton, New Jersey (USA), May 5, 1972.  This concert came after the release of their 4th album "From The Inside" (Sept. 1971).  Jim Messina had left the band in 1970 (to form Loggins & Messina with Kenny Loggins) and had been replaced by Paul Cotton (from The Illinois Speed Press).   The title of this live set comes from the fact that Poco (since their formation in 1968) "were the blueprint" for the later band The Eagles!

Richie Furay ~ I Still Have Dreams, 1979 original promotional use only Asylum LP, $25 + S / H

1979 original promotional use only Asylum Records LP pressing #6E 231, cover VG++, NO seam or spine splits, NO cut-out markings,NO ring-wear, some shelf wear on back, promo sticker on front, original printed lyrics inner sleeve VG+, some seams busted, vinyl M-, NO scratches, plays excellent. Richie begins side 1 with a Disco-flavored tune that is actually not bad, but it was a surprise, but such were the times as mentioned before on this site. Thankfully it is the only Disco tune on the album, the old '60s soul pop hit "Lonely Too Long" is next, and again, not a bad take. A couple of songs do have the "Poco flavor" to them, which is good. Overall not his best effort, but certainly enjoyable & listenable.
