A funny thing happened to Kenny Loggins after he was signed to the Columbia Label as a solo artist. He ran into Jim Messina who had played with The Buffalo Springfield and Poco. A duo would be formed and between 1972-1976, they would sell millions of albums and place 10 singles on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
Their highest charting single was “Your Mama Don’t Dance,” which was released during late 1972 and peaked at number four on the BILLBOARD Singles Chart. It was just about a perfect rock/pop song with impeccable harmonies. It remains a highlight of their career.
After spliiting with Messina during 1972, Loggin swould go on to a successful solo career, highlighted by his huge number one hit, “Footloose.”
