When they first met, Jimmy Messina was already a well-established success story, having produced and played with the legendary band Buffalo Springfield and later with the country-rock pioneers Poco. Kenny Loggins, meanwhile, was a young singer-songwriter with far less experience, but with talent to burn as evidenced by early compositions like "House At Pooh Corner" and "Danny's Song."
Then Sittin' In (1971), originally envisioned as a one-off joint release intended to introduce Loggins as part of a Messina six-album production deal with Columbia Records, became a major smash hit. So, by public demand, this accidental duo was created. In the next few years, a series of albums would follow in rapid order – 1972's Loggins & Messina, 1973's Full Sail, 1974's double-live On Stage, the same year's Mother Lode, 1975's cover song set So Fine and 1976's Native Sons.
Their first Greatest Hits package, Best of Friends followed later in 1976 and put a bow on their studio work, gathering such beloved hits as "Angry Eyes," "House At Pooh Corner," "Danny's Song" and "Your Mama Don't Dance." Gatefold, colored 180g vinyl pressing from Friday Music, mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music and Capitol Mastering. Also includes new liners from Kenny and Jim and a 24" x 24" poster.
