Recorded at RCA studios in Hollywood and released in 1974 ‘Seven’ is the sixth studio album by Poco and seventh overall when including their live album Deliverin’. It is their first album released after the departure of founding member Richie Furay. The front cover was designed by Phil Hartman, brother of Poco’s manager John Hartmann, who as a graphic artist also designed covers for the band America.
Jim Messina makes an appearance playing mandolin on ‘Rocky Mountain Breakdown’. Burton Cummings appears on piano and Bobbye Hall adds congas. Do you know how many songs she has appeared on that reached the top ten? That would be twenty-two with six of those reaching number one. What a musician what a career!
This album was not the commercial monster Poco would have hoped for. They would have to wait until 1978 with the release of ‘Legend’ to achieve their career zenith. Enjoy CB
