iTunes Editors’ Notes

Musical commitment, a loyal fan base, and sheer tenacity have kept Poco going for nearly 40 years. Bareback at Big Sky captures them in vital form at a 2005 concert in Bozeman, Montana where long-time band mates Rusty Young and Paul Cotton receive able support from bassist Jack Sundrud and percussionist George Lawrence throughout this acoustic-oriented set. From Poco’s earlier days come such favorites as the Latin-inflected “Too Many Nights Too Long” and the galloping “Under the Gun.” More recent compositions like “Nothing Less Than Love” and “Bareback” rekindle the yearning romanticism of the band’s best work. “Barbados” simmers to a gentle island groove, while their treatment of J.J. Cale’s “Cajun Mood” adds a funky undercurrent. An unexpected cover of Neil Young’s Buffalo Springfield-era tune “On the Way Home” shows off the group’s impeccable harmonies. Poco deserves credit for influencing everyone from the Eagles to Restless Heart and Lonestar. On their own, they’re still capable of delivering aching ballads and spirited rockers with a Western twist, as Bareback at Big Sky shows.

Customer Reviews

Bareback at Big Sky

Awesome unplugged set from the most underated band still out there today.Great new cuts and very nice live acoustic versions of some of their great songs rarely captured live. What a pleasant surprise. Cajun Moon is smokin'! On the way Home is one of my favorites and I finally have a great copy of it. Great Rusty Young version of TBS' Find out in Time. Other highlights are Save a Corner, Bareback, Too Many Nights. Hell, every song is great. It's now my favorite poco record... and I have them ALL. These guys just keep getting better! Yeah! Baby!!!!!

The boys are back with a bang!

One of the first and longest-lasting country-rock groups, Poco had their roots in the dying embers of Buffalo Springfield. After Neil Young and Stephen Stills, the co-founders of that group, exited in the spring of 1968, only guitarist/singer Richie Furay and bassist Jim Messina remained to complete the group's swan song, Last Time Around. The final Springfield track, "Kind Woman," included only Furay and Messina, with a guest appearance on steel guitar by Rusty Young — at the time, he was...
