Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Heart of the Night”

Poco – Juice Newton

Two country-rock hits today. (Well, hits from country-rock acts.)

The first is from Poco and their biggest album. 1978’s Legend. This album found Poce moving away from their country roots after Timothy B. Schmit left to join the Eagles. The song is by founding member Paul Cotton.

Four years after Poco’s Legend, Juice Newton is even more MOR and less country with her own “Heart of the Night” song. Nevertheless, this song made the country charts. Warning: lots of eighties hair!
