Poco Live is the tenth album, and second live album, by the country rock band Poco. The material for this album had been recorded for Epic Records shortly after the Cantamos album, but it was not released until over a year later, after Poco's switch to ABC Records and success with the Head over Heels album. The release of this album (April 1976, Epic) produced confusion in the marketplace over whether this or Rose of Cimarron (May 1976, ABC Records) was Poco's newest album, helping sales of Poco Live and hurting sales of Rose of Cimarron. It contains excellent performances of "Bad Weather" and "Angel". This album is truly a forgotten gem in country-rock history. It is a more coherent album then "The Last Roundup" (recorded in 1977 but released in 2004.)
