POCO Nostalgia

While I was cleaning out my garage this past weekend, I came upon a box with no label. As I started to go through it I recognized my old high school stuff, pictures, newspapers, all sort of stuff. At the bottom of the box I noticed a piece of paper, roughly 5” x 5” square. As I unfolded the paper I couldn’t believe what I was staring at. It was a small poster of the very first concert I ever attend. It was POCO and Shawn Phillips at the Boston Commons, Tuesday, August 31st. But what year? I had to look that up on line. The year 1974. This small poster is in excellent shape and sure did bring back memories.

I attached the picture. Thanks for reading. I hope this message brings back memories of your first POCO concert.

Very cool...kinda like when I found a "Head over Heels" full page ad from Rolling Stone that I had tucked away...found it just last year when going through a bunch of my stuff !

According to the Poco Concert Database, the Concert on Boston Common w/Shawn Phillips was in 1971, not 1974. That is consistent with the actual calendar for 1971, when August 31st fell on a Tuesday. The newspaper ad isn't dated, so until there is documentation to the contrary, I think this show is from 1971. That's my recollection as well.
