Poco Pickin' Up The Pieces on Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid SACD from Audio Fidelity
The Hybrid SACD is Finally Back at Audio Fidelity: Marking the Label's First Releases on the Format in 10 Years!
Mastered for SACD by Steve Hoffman at Stephen Marsh Mastering
When Neil Young and Stephen Stills decided to call it quits and leave Buffalo Springfield all was not lost. From the ashes arose not only CSN and CSN&Y but also Poco, one of the first and most accomplished practitioners of what would become known as Country-Rock. Pickin' Up The Pieces, released in 1969, is Poco's debut album.
From Buffalo Springfield came the talented duo of Jim Messina and Richie Furay. The other original members were steel guitarist Rusty Young (whose playing is a standout feature of this recording), singer-drummer George Grantham and bass player-singer Randy Meisner.
Furay and Messina literally picked up the pieces of their former band and created a landmark in the history of music for prior to Pickin' Up The Pieces others had ventured into similar territory, but nobody had ever really created a full-length album of rock music infused with the elements of country music.
More than any other Poco album, Furay took center stage as the #1 songwriter, contributing to almost all of the tunes. "Just In Case It Happens," "Yes Indeed," "Grand Junction" and "Consequently So Long" are all Poco classics.
This Hybrid SACD edition of Poco Pickin' Up The Pieces also includes the bonus track "Do You Feel It Too" and is compatible with all SACD and CD players.
