Editors’ Notes

This 1972 self-titled second album by singer/songwriters Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina finds the duo coming into their own as a song-driven hit machine. Loggins (who enjoyed a big solo career in the '80s) and Messina (who was a driving force in both Poco and Buffalo Springfield) each brought specific sounds to the table. Loggins’ funky “Long Tailed Cat” (dig the countrypolitan violin solo) and “Good Friend” (with its oddly appealing minor-key brass break) nicely contrast Messina’s folk-poppy “Golden Ribbons” (with its languid flute) and “Whiskey” (a cockeyed tribute to West Hollywood’s legendary club Whiskey a Go-Go***). The album’s two best songs are the cowrites “Angry Eyes” and “Your Mama Don’t Dance.” (The latter hit the American Top 20 twice, the second time in 1988 with a cover by the pop-metal band Poison.) This is a singer/songwriter album that boasts not one but two good singers and writers. And it’s a beautiful hallmark of the early-’70s California sound.

Customer Reviews

Loggins & Messina is 70's Rock at it's Best

They didn't frequent the pop charts, but their music is some of the very best of 70's rock-n-roll. Their musical diversity and tight vocal harmonies are legendary. The blend of their voices very special indeed. Their concerts sold out regularly and often there were more people attending them and present 2-hours prior to show time than America, The Eagles, CSN or any of the rest at the peak of the show. You never left a Loggins & Messina concert without the feeling that you had watched and listened to something very special. They are simply the best and this album is an important part of any lover of quality 70's music. Every song is a classic; none disappoint.

awesome album

perfect combo of songs...

House at Pooh Corner

This song practically brings tears to my eyes whenever I hear it. I never heard another original song as genuine and sweet as this-it's magical. The innocence and simplicity of youth and days gone by forever....Winkin, Blinkin and Nod by Doobies is very similar in mood.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '00s, '10s

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...
