"Country Rock" or.....

Postby StevenT » Sun Nov 12, 2017 10:10 pm

How about "Hard Country"?

As we've all heard, the All Fired Up studio version

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eF0LeaH44Yg),

as well as the current live version, of this Jack Sundrud classic initiates with an opening acoustic guitar, and slowly/methodically adds mandolin, keyboards, bass, drums, and a soaring electric slide guitar.

This song brilliantly symbolizes societal evolution from pastoral, simple existence into fast-paced, technology-centered, complicated life.

The in-concert arrangement of "Hard Country" is a show-stopper. It might not be the best known Poco song or the most covered Poco song, but without doubt it is the best song they play live now.

Well done, Jack, well done.
