They’re Havin’ A Good Time: Loggins & Messina

Jerry Gilbert, Sounds, Spring 1972

THE KENNY Loggins/Jim Messina band is the best thing to emerge from LA in years. Their recent Stateside tour with Delaney & Bonnie took audiences by storm, and in four months they have built up a huge following in America.

Later this month they visit Britain for the CBS Convention, and after sampling the mild hysteria which is already greeting their shows in America, JERRY GILBERT takes a look at the effect this latest phenomenon could have on audiences in Britain.
