Album Notes
To whom it may interest,

Watching The River Run “Revisited” is a collection of my favorite songs that I still enjoy performing. Songs that I have either written, produced or engineered.

Originally the reason for making this album was because inevitably, whenever a promoter and/or a radio station needed to create an ad for a Jim Messina Concert, they would choose the original recordings from The Buffalo Springfield, Poco and Loggins and Messina.

The problem with this for me was the original recordings of "Peace of Mind" "Watching the River Run" "Kind Woman" and "Child's Claim To Fame" all contain Kenny or Richie as the featured vocalist. Whenever I heard the over the radio, I felt, they misrepresented what my audience would hear when they came to see me in concert.

So, I booked studio time in Nashville using the four musicians/singers I was performing with at the time and we proceeded to record my entire set list. Which by the way, turned out to be fun stuff to do!

Upon completion, I selected the songs from the master recordings to create the CD. My expectation to produce a comprehensive source for Radio stations and promoters to create their ads from was met.

But what I didn’t expect and much to my surprise was that my fans would respond with such appreciation and thereby making it much more special to me now than my original reason and purpose for creating it. That is why Watching The River Run is now being “Revisited.”

For your enjoyment,

Jim Messina

Good To Hear From Jim Again
Being from Santa Barbara, you had to be a Jim Messina fan. I had much of his music on cassette tapes but they got old and worn out. This CD is a nice compilation. Thank goodness many are re-dos - especially the over-played "Mama Don't Dance." The sound quality on this CD is excellent, Jim's voice is smooth, and his guitar playing is superb.

Watching The River Run "Revisited"
I've been searching a long time for this album, I knew it was around, but it was hardly available in Holland; Europe.
I've been a long time fan of Jim Messina; This collection does justice to the craftsmanship of Jim Messina & is a real joy to listen to.
