4.0 out of 5 stars Always under-rated, 22 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Essential Collection [1975-1982] (Audio CD)
Somehow, Poco never got the recognition their music deserved. The material, musicianship and production values were beyond reproach, but whilst their peers went astro, Poco remained almost a word-of-mouth band. It was if they were never on the right label. (Probably would have been better on Elektra/Asylum or Warners).
This compilation also sums up Poco's problems. The first 4 tracks (from Head Over Heels) have been taken from a damaged tape; the LH channel is partially erased and the RH one has magnetic noise all over it, because the tape has been played on a poorly maintained, non-demagged machine.
So the dubbing engineer was a) not listening or b) CBA'd to find an alternative copy master and c) the record company released it anyway. Couldn't give a toss!
On the other hand, I now know how much I liked this stuff and will set about buying the proper CDs.
