    Nice harmonies indeed, NMB.

    I'll be posting a Timothy pic, LT, I think you'll enjoy (if Photobucket cooperates ).

    EDIT: it's not working, I'm getting a "3rd Party Hosting" message. I guess I'll have to start using something else.

    Know of any good alternatives to Pukebucket (I'm mad at them)? Maybe I should find out what this Pinterest thing is that the young people are talking about

    I hear that Imgur works well, but the hubs moved all his photos to Fotki, which he tells me is only $20.00 per year.

    Love the photo, D. Richard Marx is a good example of someone who worked with both RM and TBS. (Of course, we've talked about this before.)

    From the 1971 album In California this is "Honeysuckle" by Compton & Batteau. Randy is credited with playing bass per the uploader (Randy is on the album credits along with John London for bass).

    Very cool discovery, D.! So funky. I see Jim Messina is on this too.

    P.S. do we know if this is the only song on the album that Randy played on? This here site lets you stream the whole album:

    After a cursory search I wasn't able to find which tracks Randy played bass on. It may be the same situation as The Millenium recordings. I did see that Rusty Young also played on some songs.

    Thanks for the link.

    ETA: I wonder if Randy and Jim recorded their parts together and how that went down, considering the Poco fall-out.

    Oh my gosh, you're right! I hadn't even thought of that. I was just so gobsmacked that somehow you'd been able to find out about this "new" (to us) Randy recording.

    Ok, I found another track Randy played bass on, "Homesick Kid." It was mentioned in a 2009 interview of the songwriter, John Compton. Mr. Compton was asked who got Randy, Pat Shanahan, Jim Messina and Rusty Young involved in the album. Although he gave an answer about how Poco was recording across the hall in the same studio, he didn't say how Randy and Pat got involved...they were both with Rick Nelson at the time. But Randy and Pat played on "Homesick Kid" and it was a dream come true for him.

    (the interviewer gave a copyright notice about reproducing any of the text and I didn't feel like contacting him to ask permission about a brief paragraph so that's why I'm not directly quoting).

    Here's the link to the interview; the part about Randy is the 17th question:

    And here's the song, "Homesick Kid."
