Rest In Peace Buddy.
We had the first NROTPS album and listened to it over and over. For all that, I don't seem to remember it much, could have been the atmosphere I suppose...
Being from Fresno, where Country WAS Top 40, I liked them right away. Was into Flying Burrito Brothers and Poco too.
I dug all those groups NRTOPS, Poco, Flying Burrito Brothers also. I bought their albums, of all of those groups, I can't say a better compliment than plunking the cash down on the record store counter. That is the highest compliment I can give any performer.
