Shortly after Rusty passed, I ordered and received a new Poco T-Shirt to honor Rusty and the band this summer.

I was surprised and delighted to also receive a CD as and a guitar pick.

I love the CD, but it didn’t come with a title or song titles.

I labeled it “Poco Final” in my library.

Does anyone have a song list of this CD?

Sorry to Mary for the loss of Rusty. I never met either Mary or Rusty though I attended many many shows starting in Boston on the Common when the band formed and extending to my last concert in Rockport MA about 2 years ago. Had tickets for the upcoming show in Lynn MA. We've lost a great one and a great person and musician. His music and writing simply kept getting better culminating with Waiting for the Sun. I'll continue to listen to Rusty and Poco every Sunday morning because there is simply no better way to start the day and the week.. He will be missed deeply but thankfully the music lives on and on.

Hi Mary,
I hope you’re hanging in there as I know what you’re going through and I completely understand. Anyways I just wanted to ask on the hats with the horses on them. Do any of them come with blue stitching of the horse?
I just wanted to ask and yes I did receive some of my stuff today thank you so much for that as I know that had to be hard to do. I could tell you I know Rusty Super proud of you you’re such an amazing woman. My husbands in a musician also so I can’t even imagine what you’re going through. I sent you angel hugs and butterfly kisses

Just wanted to drop in and say, I can’t hear Crazy Love without the smell of ocean breeze air taking back to a concert I went to in the late 70s or early 80s where you guys opened for Boston! I loved Poco more than Boston!— fun times!

J just wanted to tell you that I've loved your music since my early 20s. I'm now in my early 60s. I especially like Rose of Cimarron! I just listened to it and it is so heavenly! I especially love the voice of the beautiful gentleman with the long brown hair
His voice is angelic !

My condolences to Rusty's wife and family. I was a huge fan and followed his whole career, and saw him (Poco) in concert several times throughout the years. I remember when Poco was the opening act for a new band called the Eagles in the St. Paul Civic Center. Key Poco members left over the years and I always worried how they would be able to survive. Somehow Rusty's talent and leadership was so spectacular, he kept the band together, bringing in new members without skipping a beat.
The band and their music just kept getting better, musically and vocally.
Your music was an inspiration to me when I was performing with bands in the late 60's and 70's. Needless to say, we were mostly playing country-rock at a time when most bands weren't. Thanks for giving me so much enjoyment.
Last, but not least, I could tell by Rusty's energy and personality on stage, that he was a great person also.
God Bless You Rusty !!!

Was in the fall of '69 or spring of '70 when I first saw Poco in Buffalo NY. My future wife was in the same crowd, tho we didn't meet for another 3 years. When we did get together we found that we had duplicates of many rock albums; but the groups we each had the most of was Poco and Buffalo Springfield. You have been a big part of our lives ever since. Clubs and venues small and bigger - the JCC in Westchester; Jones Beach; Patchoque, Daryl's House in Pawling where I saw you and then in Denver 4 days later when she and our daughter saw you in Aurora Co, when Richey sat in. Will miss your kind smile.
The sun is a little less bright; the mountain breeze a little chillier; all because you're not here to sing about it for and with us.

So sad to hear of Rusty's passing. He and his band POCO were an inspiration to me in times of great stress; their songs will continue to bring me great pleasure and happiness, as I recall the joy in seeing them in concert. My sincere condolences to Mary and the family. RIP Rusty...see you down the road.

Mary and Family, My condolences on your loss. May Rusty lay in peace and may his memory be a blessing. I started seeing Poco in New Jersey in late 60s, early 70s....on Boardwalk in Asbury Park, at a minor league ballpark in Jersey City. Rusty was a wildman back then. I was in band at the time and I'd never seen a steel pedal playing through a Leslie Tone Cabinet.
I got to meet Richie a few times at a place called Nissi's and got to cross that off my bucket list. But I was waiting to see Rusty in Arvada this fall. He'll always be in my mind and heart.
