Entertainment Reviews:

Q - 4/00, p.112
3 stars out of 5 - "...mixes a cocktail of '60s pop, bluegrass and country and shapes heir own brand of sift rock....still carries a quiet charge today and points to what might have been."
Uncut - 3/00, p.91
4 stars out of 5 - "...At their best they were magnificent, and almost everyone who passed through the band was a fine songwriter..."
Mojo (Publisher) - 4/00, p.117
"...Focuses on their early days and misses a few cues but when on form...Poco's energetic country-rock was a perfect tonic for the tired, dispirited souls of dark Vietnam war days."

Product Description:

Poco: Rusty Young, Jim Messina, Richie Furay, Paul Cotton, Timothy Schmit, George Grantham.
Producers: Poco, Jim Messina, Steve Cropper, Jack Richardson, Jim Mason.
Compilation producer: Bob Irwin.
Recorded between January 16, 1969 and August 29, 1974.
Digitally remastered by Vic Anesini (Sony Music Studios, New York, New York).
VERY BEST OF POCO is a fine set with a generous track list (it was originally a two-record package) which includes the group's most well-known cuts. Though they existed in the shadow of the Eagles, and were plagued by constant personnel changes, Poco stood as one of the finest country rock bands of the 1970s, a claim supported by the excellent material on VERY BEST OF.
Since the set was released in 1975, it provides a substantial cross-section of the band's early work, particularly the line-up featuring Richie Furay and Jim Messina. Characterized by a driving sound, high, sweet group harmonies, and a fair bit of twang, Poco are the missing link between the Byrds' SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO and the Eagles' sleek, mainstream sound.
