Pickin' Up the Pieces is the debut album by country rock band Poco, released in 1969. It was one of the earliest examples of the emerging genre of country rock. Several of the songs here date back to Richie Furay's days in Buffalo Springfield. An early version of What a Day was included on the Springfield's eponymous box set in 2001. Bassist Randy Meisner appears on the album but quit the band shortly before the record was released. Meisner's exit was the result of his anger from being excluded. Pickin' Up The Pieces - Poco.

The only hint of the turmoil behind the scenes came on the cover, where Meisner had been erased from the cover painting and replaced with a dog the music itself was as smooth, sunny, and harmony-laden as anything a fan of the emerging Laurel Canyon sound could ask for. Unfortunately, record buyers proved harder to attract than critics, and although Pieces sold respectably enough to convince label to foot the bill for a follow-up, it wasn't exactly. Off their debut album of the same name 1969. Well there's just a little bit of magic In the country music we're singin' So let's begin We're bringin' in album Poco - Pickin Up The Pieces 1969.

Pickin' Up the Pieces is all the more amazing when one considers that Jim Messina and George Grantham were both covering for the departed Meisner in hastily learned capacities on bass and vocals, respectively. The title track is practically an anthem for the virtues of country-rock, with the kind of sweet harmonizing and tight interplay between the guitars that the Byrds, the Burritos, and others had to work awhile to achieve.
