Amongst the songs is "Call it love" that Rick Lanow & Ronnie Guilbeau wrote for Poco but there are two songs written by Gib Guilbeau. "Louisiana" & "Feels like a heartache" co-written with son Ronnie.
However the biggest surprise is that Gib sings lead vocals on "Louisiana" and plays fiddle and shares lead vocals on "Christine's Tune (Devil in disguise)".
