Loggins & Messina

Buffalo Springfield
(1971 - 1976)

In November of 1970, I interviewed a singer songwriter who was signed to ABC Dunhill, by the name of Kenny Loggins. We recorded several of Kenny's songs in the living room of my home. By January of 1971, I had sorted out most of his material and began to prepare an album for him. At that time, I was signed to Columbia Records as an Independent Producer.I spent many weeks forming, auditioning, rehearsing and recording demos for Kenny, who was finally signed to Columbia Records. Managers, attorneys and an array of other business relationships needed to be established before Kenny could formally begin his recording and performing career.

The first album was entitled "Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina Sittin' In." It was my intention to use my name and experience to launch Loggins, by introducing him to the audiences that I had performed to during the time spent with Buffalo Springfield and Poco . The title "Sittin' In" was appropriate, for Loggins and I intended to record only one album together as artists. However, the album was so well received that Kenny and I both chose to create a new entity entitled "Loggins & Messina."
