    You’re welcome, FF, I’m glad you liked the song.

    Happy 16th Anniversary to Love Me or Leave Me Alone!!

    A few days late here but Randy’s last album release warrants some recognition. So many questions about this one and so few answers. Anyway, here is one track that I truly believe would have been a hit with some editing and clean-up and a proper release. Based on the vocals it sounds like it was recorded in the mid to late 80s (compare to how he sounds on Poco’s Legacy album).

    “One Less Fool” (songwriter: R. Meisner) -

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME ALONE!!!

    I am late with this, but I just realized I had the release date for this album entered wrong on the board calendar. It was a week later, but I corrected it now. Thanks for the video, Delilah. Randy is rockin' it.

    I'm very late reading and responding but just wanted to pipe in as to what a fantastic album I think Love me or Leave me alone is. I also agree the production is awful, but the wonderful songs sung by the incomparable Randy more than make up for it. I listen to it all the time, it's so interesting that it covers such a big period of time, I can literally hear the changes in Randy's voice for example, he sounds more raspy on Midnight Rain so I assume that's one of the later recordings. I love every song but my favorites (besides his Eagles songs included) are Long Time Blue, Love me or Leave me alone, Salt in my Tears, When the Dam breaks and One Less Fool. I can't stop singing OLF, it's that catchy and good. Yes the abrupt cut off is jarring but I expect it now and it doesn't diminish the brilliance of his performance. I wish it has been released earlier and had a chance to shine but so grateful to enjoy it now. Randy is literally one of my all time favorite singers! What a voice

    Happy 17th Anniversary to Love Me or Leave Me Alone!

    This is an album that really showcases some great Randy vocals, catchy tunes and unfortunately, some missed opportunities. Under the right circumstances, some of these tracks could have been put together to make up a really cool pop/rock album.

    The album is available to stream for anyone who hasn’t heard it or just wants to re-visit it.

    Here’s Randy’s cover of “Salt in My Tears” - not sure when it was recorded but had it been released as a single before Martin Briley’s, I bet it would have been a nice hit for Randy! (it’s irksome that it says “Sat” instead of “Salt” - that was a major editing goof when this went to print)
