Good Medicine Presents: Jim Messina!

Few musi­cal artists résumés list mem­ber­ship in a band induct­ed into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame; few­er still can lay claim to being a found­ing mem­ber of the sem­i­nal band cred­it­ed with cre­at­ing Coun­try Rock; and only one artist can include all the above in addi­tion to being one-half of the most suc­cess­ful duos of the 1970s. A supreme­ly tal­ent­ed gui­tarist, Jim Messi­na began work­ing with the leg­endary band Buf­fa­lo Spring­field in 1966 as a record­ing engi­neer on their sec­ond album Buf­fa­lo Spring­field Again. In 1967, at the request of the group and Atlantic Records founder and pres­i­dent Ahmet Erte­gun, Messi­na was asked to pro­duce the band’s third and final album. Short­ly there­after, he replaced Bruce Palmer, the bass play­er, tour­ing and record­ing with the band up until the com­ple­tion and release of their album Last Time Around.
