Poco - Cowboys & Englishmen (1982)

Released in 1982 as a last album in MCA. Filled with very nice songs including: "Cajun Moon" written by J.J. Cale (I like this song, especially this version of Poco); I recommend listening to a sample); "Sea of Heartbreak" (written by Hal David & Paul Hampton); and "There Goes My Heart" (written by Paul Cotton). After Timothy B. Schmit left, the group had two Englishmen as new members, and a ratio of original songs in an album decreased. But they showed their appealingness nonetheless and made more hits than before. This album gives an impression of being more adult-oriented, less country-flavored, but very enchanting as ever. It's definitely on a line of Poco.
