Blue And Gray is the fifteenth album by the Country rock band Poco. The album is a theme-based record, similar to Desperado by The Eagles, only the theme on this record is the American Civil War. The band scores minor chart success with "Widowmaker," but the album is now Poco's rarest. The colors in the title refer to United States Army and Confederate States Army uniforms of the period, respectively.
