Golden Ribbon Redux


It's time to pull "Golden Ribbons" out of the box again. History repeats itself, just on the other side of the world. Will we ever learn? Still a great album all around!!



The first time I ever saw Loggins & Messina was at the San Francisco recording for this album. I had never heard of either one of them, and 'till this day, I have never forgotten that great performance. I haven't seen Jimmy Messina perform live since & I've proceeded to see Kenny Loggins at least 6 times over the years. Nothing ever came close to the perfection they made that night. That being said... I am not a fan of 'live' CD's. But 'On Stage' is the exception to the rule. Teenage memories aside, they were flawless... and they got it on tape. Vahevala, Angry Eyes.... This is the one to own! Trust me. It doesn't get any better than this!

About Loggins & Messina

Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina were the most successful pop/rock duo of the first half of the '70s. Loggins was a staff songwriter who had recently enjoyed success with a group of songs recorded by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band when he came to the attention of Messina, a record producer and former member of Buffalo Springfield and Poco. Messina agreed to produce Loggins' first album, but somewhere along the way it became a duo effort that was released in 1972 under the title Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina Sittin' In. The album was a gold-seller that stayed in the charts more than two years.

In the next four years, Loggins & Messina released a series of gold or platinum albums, most of which hit the Top Ten. They were all played in a buoyant country-rock style with an accomplished band. Loggins & Messina (1972) featured the retro-rock hit "Your Mama Don't Dance." Full Sail (1973), On Stage (a double live album, 1974), and Mother Lode (1974) all hit the Top Ten. So Fine was an album of '50s cover songs. The pair's last new studio album, Native Sons, came out at the start of 1976.

Loggins & Messina split for two solo careers by the end of that year, their early catalog completed by a greatest-hits album, Best of Friends, and a live record, Finale. The duo reunited in 2005 and hit the road for a summer tour while the compilation The Best: Sittin' in Again was arriving in stores. The tour itself was documented on Live: Sittin' in Again at Santa Barbara Bowl, which appeared late in the year. ~ William Ruhlmann
