    Default Randy's discography

    I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could gather some less well-known gems from Randy's varied musical career. It doesn't necessarily have to be YouTube clips; all info and contributions are welcome.

    One of Randy's pre-Eagles bands, The Poor, contributed vocals for "Study in Motion #1" on the soundtrack of the 1967 Jack Nicholson movie Hells Angels on Wheels:

    Full (hopefully) discog of The Poor here with a YouTube link to She's Got the Changes*:

    *"She's Got the Changes" was written by Tom Shipley, later of Brewer & Shipley ("One Toke Over the Line") fame

    Randy singing Neil Young's Heart Of Gold and a relatively recent re-recording of Take It To The Limit with Juice Newton;

    I do like their rendition of Heart of Gold, they sing well together. Unusually, Ms. Newton let her duet partners choose what song they wanted to sing, so maybe Randy is a Neil Young fan.

    Credits found online vary widely for Dan Fogelberg's 1974 album Souvenirs, but Mr. Meisner allegedly sang back-up on "There's a Place in this World for a Gambler"

    I can't discern his voice on that one, but I do think I hear him on "(Someone's Been) Telling You Stories," which definitely features Henley 'n Frey on backing vocals. It's also safe to say that Joe Walsh produced the record.

    If memory serves me, I was reading one of my Fogelberg CD's and Randy was back up on a couple tunes. I loved Dan's music, so missed

    Thanks, D.J. I'll probably end up buying an old vinyl copy of that album because the internet sources for credits are so unreliable. Or if you have the time/inclination, would you check your CD again and report back which songs Randy sings on? Thank you.

    While we're waiting, let's enjoy a baby-faced Mr. Meisner in striped trousers and a fringey cape (hey it was 1969!), backing up Rick Nelson on "She Belongs to Me" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UqYxTg-0aTo

    Randy contributes vocals to this very pretty song by Rick Roberts - later of Firefall and much later of the Roberts-Meisner Band - called "Deliver Me"
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HSwiauWPx0

    Randy's part comes near the end, over 3 minutes into the song.

    Here's the Roberts-Meisner Band on Nashville Now in 1988:

    He sang backup on the Souvenirs Album. Joe played guitar and Don and Glenn sang back up as well. And actually it says Joe produced the album and played on 10 0f the tracks.
