Poco is one of the first groups to pioneer country-rock music with harmonies and instruments of country mixed with rock 'n' roll rhythms. Their influence runs deep in both country and pop music. Poco has paved the way for supergroups ranging from Crosby, Stills & Nash and the Eagles to Loggins & Messina and Fleetwood Mac. Mississippi-born singer-songwriter, Steve Forbert, initially made his mark in New York City in the late 1970s, a time when genre lines were not so cleanly drawn, and artists could straddle a line between the world of the folk, singer-songwriter, and the nascent punk scene. Forbert sings in an intimate, soulful rasp, like a whispering Rod Stewart, and he writes richly melodic and densely lyrical songs that combine rock, folk, soul and country. His second album, Jack Rabbit Slim, featuring the single "Romeo's Tune," was a big hit in '79. Appropriate for all ages.
