Jim Messina's first solo album from 1979 Track List: New and Different Way Do You Want To Dance Seeing You (For The First Time) Free To Be Me Talk To M. .

Loggins and Messina is the second album by singer/songwriters Loggins and Messina, released in 1972. Following on the success of their first album, this album built on the strengths of their debut outing. It also became the true introduction of the team, Loggins and Messina, not as singles playing together, but rather as a team that played as one. It featured two songs that charted, with "Your Mama Don't Dance" reaching its peak at their highest charting single

Jim Messina was initially a recording engineer on Buffalo Springfield's second album. During the course of the production of their third album, he was asked to produce the band. Shortly thereafter, he became their bass player and toured and recorded with the band up until completion and release of the record. After they split up, he and fellow Buffalo Springfield member, Richie Furay, formed Poco in 1968. He left two years later and entered into a partnership with a young singer/songwriter called Kenny Loggins.

It began as a solo album by Kenny Loggins; Jim Messina was with Columbia Records, serving as an independent producer when he met Loggins. In the course of producing Loggins' work, Messina provided backing vocals and guitar, leading to the album's full title, Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina Sittin' In. MFSL released an audiophile version of Sittin' In on the label's silver disc series in 1989. I. Lovin' Me (Messina, Murray MacLeod) (lead singer: Jim Messina). II.

Jim Messina and His Jesters. When he was 16 years old, he recorded an LP with "His Jesters" titled The Dragsters, which was released in November 1964. In 1983, Messina released his third solo album with Warner Bros. The album leaned more toward rock, and Messina used a number of young and upcoming studio musicians as his rhythm section. The album also featured Edie Laymen and Pauline Wilson singing background and harmony parts. On the song "The Island", he shows his influence of slack key, a Hawaiian style of playing the guitar. In 1993, Brooks and Dunn recorded "Mexican Minutes" written by Jim Messina and co-authored with Kent Robbins in Nashville.

Loggins & Messina, Poco, Buffalo Springfield; these are just a few of the monumental musical groups that itarist Jim Messina has been involved with. As an artist his resume speaks for itself, with a string of hits including Your Mama Don’t Dance, Angry Eyes, Peace of Mind, among others. The year 2016 finds Messina active and creative as ever, with a new live album In the Groove. The album was made in anticipation of the fact that I changed booking agents to the Roots Agency, says Messina. Messina knew that a key component to the tour would be a new album.
