Poco’s “From the Inside” Reissued
While Poco had only two major hits (“Crazy Love” and “Heart of the Night” in 1979) well after Schmit’s time with the band, its influence has been a lasting one, particularly as a part of the country-rock continuum that begins with Buffalo Springfield — former members Jim Messina and Richie Furay founded Poco.
A remastered version of the band’s third studio album, From the Inside, is now available, revealing a band at the peak of its early powers, with Schmit responsible for the 1971 record’s title track. The remastering also gives the record a sound the band never felt it achieved with producer Steve Cropper.
This version of the record, from Iconoclassic Records also features two previously unreleased bonus tracks — “C’mon” and “A Man Like Me” recorded with producer Richie Podolor, as well as an essay about the band with new interviews.
