Poco Poco is the band that blazed the path for the Eagles and other "country rockers.” Poco, founded in 1968 by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Richie Furay (inducted 1997 with Buffalo Springfield), virtually invented the "Country rock" genre commercially popularized by the Eagles through a long string of early-to mid-'70s hits like "Take It Easy." Poco's 1969 debut, "Pickin' Up the Pieces," received the rare 5-star designation in Dave Marsh's "Rolling Stone Record Guide." They have released 23 other albums including the 2006 release of “The Wildwood Sessions.”
