Plainsong was a short-lived English band of the early '70s featuring Ian Mathews, the former lead singer of Fairport Convention.



Plainsong - "The Goodnight Loving Trail" (1973)

Yes, the song title sounds like a porno, but it was actually a cattle trail of the 1870s, named after cattlemen Charles Goodnight and Oliver Loving.

Good post and nice stuff. I got hooked with Sweetheart of the Rodeo and naturally followed the merge of CSN/CCSNY and Buffalo Springfield into Poco. They remain a favorite and were superb live with a lot of energy and were tremendous musicians and versatile.

Here are four tracks. Two from a live album Delivering
LINK This is a very up tempo medley of songs from previous albums and highlights musicianship, vocals and harmonies and their incredible drummer George Grantham, imo the best all round rock/country/pop drummer of all time. At about 4:35 in this track you get a sense of his use of a single bass drum pedal and control of his high hat to create backbeats and counter beats at high speed. Precision and endurance. Incredible. Not too bad lyrics either.
With a goodnight yawn,
the heartache's gone,
yes indeed.


LINKThis is another live medley of early Poco and some Buffalo Springfield. Happy toe tapping stuff.
Somebody yelled at me, (hey!)
country music and company,
kind of makes it
on a Sunday afternoon.
picnic lunches of yesterday,
should still have a place in your heart today.
Think it over,
cause we'll all be going home so soon.



And two(three actually) from their second album simply titled Poco.
LINK
LINK The first track here is notable for Rusty Young's use of his pedal steel guitar being played through a Hammond leslie cabinet with a rapidly whirling speaker cone giving it the sound of a Hammond B3 organ with which the speaker was most often paired (the late Jimmy Smith as a jazz example). The song is also unusual because of the complex latin and jazz fusion and vocal harmonies. Most remarkable, to me anyway, is that they did this song live for their encore at the Warehouse in New Orleans. I have played music professionally and I can testify they didn't miss a note or a beat. More fine drum work and it almost goes without saying that Tim Schmidt is clearly the finest bassists plying his craft. It seems with the Eagles he was maybe less challenged than when he was with Poco. When they did this an encore they appended a track called Don't Let It Pass By which melded seamlessly on the album into Nobody's Fool/El Tonto de Nadie/Regressa

LINK
The second track from the album Poco is odd insofar as it is a very good blues piece called Anyway, Bye, Bye.

I realize this old shite is not everyone's cup of tea, but I liked the group you posted and their tracks and country rock in general.

Great thread fellas.......

Love this type of music, and as this thread indicates, there's a ton of it out there, and a lot of it's unheard.
