5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant Country Rock CD Filled with Memorable Tunes August 22, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Great, great album, about 7 or maybe 8 of the songs could have been big hits if the record company had given them the kind of a push the Eagles got. I recall so clearly the first time I bought this as a vinyl album when it first came out (I think that was about '75 or '76), and I played it at a rather high volume in my parents' living room in La Verne, California, and then "Kansas City Southern" came on. My Dad came rushing in from the back yard with an ear-to-ear smile and his eyes opened as wide as manhole covers and yelled "Whoo-whoo, who are those guys?" Every time the pedal steel player plucked out that railroad train horn sound, my Dad smiles broadly and yells out "Whoo-whoo, whoo-whoo." He was so incredibly happy; he'd been a signal maintainer for about 15 years on the Boston & Albany and after that on the New York Central railroad back in New England, and that tune struck a very resonant note in his memory. He had previously not been too impressed with the kind of rock n' roll I liked, but from that point on we got a lot closer on a lot of music. That day we sat down together and listened to this entire album and were stunned by its awesome combination of beautiful original ballads ("The Runner") and great up-tempo tunes ("Two-Lane Highway" and "Pickin' to Beat the Devil") and funny songs ("I'll Fix Your Flat Tire, Meryl") and sneaky shuffles ("Kentucky Moonshine"). We marvelled at the splendid musicianship (matchless harmony lead guitars and harmonies between lead guitar and pedal steel), the great lead voices (George Ed Powell, Michael Reilly, Larry Goshorn), and always the sweet high lonesome harmony vocals. I think we listened to "Kansas City Southern" at least 10 times that day. No matter what the "in vogue" recording medium might be, I'll always possess and love this album. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A DEFINING MOMENT IN COUNTRY ROCK ; A CLASSIC September 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1975 , the country rock movement was at something of a crossroads. The Eagles soared with One Of These Nights, but later in the year would drastically change their sound and personnel.The New Riders Of The Purple Sage were, in essence, finished.The Byrds had already disbanded.The Flying Burrito Brothers had again reorganized and were clearly on the downside of their career.Poco again was dealing with personnel changes and was struggling to recapture what they had established in the early 70's.

Pure Prairie League was also at a crossroads. Craig Fuller had been gone for a few years, the band's first two LP's, despite some terrific music, failed to generate the enthusiasm it so richly deserved.RCA did a miserable effort promoting them and dropped them when Fuller left.The band, just resigned by RCA, had toured for two years without a contract and built up a strong fan base. New lead guitarist ,singer/songwriter Larry Goshorn was added to the band joining George Ed Powell , John David Call, Mike Reilly ,Mike Connor and Billy Hinds, all of whom had been together for years and were well aware of Goshorn ,who had the reputation of being the premier guitarist in Cincinnati and surrounding areas. He previously recorded with THE SACRED MUSHROOM.

On TWO LANE HIGHWAY , the band draws heavily on it's diversified musical roots: rock ,country, bluegrass and the blues,all superbly fused into one exciting and invigorating sound. PPL's tight , rich harmonies are always present. The musicianship is exceptional on all levels.In addition to Goshorn , George Ed Powell emerges here as a extremely crafty and gifted singer/songwriter after being in Fuller's shadow the first two LP's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drivers love Two Lane Highway December 25, 1999
Format:Audio CD
I have worn out 4 or 5 cassettes of this album over the last 25 years of long haul trucking. Everyone I have turned on to this loves it. Got a ticket once for 87 in a 65 while listening to KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN. I am buying it now on CD as my new Kenworth has a CD player in it. We have a lot of time to think on the road and this album enhances that lonely time. Buy it, put on your driving shoes,(real truckers wear tennis shoes), find a long stretch of highway, and crank it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars 2LANEHWY QUALITY LISTENING April 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This CD is high quality recording - at its best. The quality sounds 2000 not 70's. I had the LP many years ago and wondered if memory made it better than it really was. Not so. The piece with Emmy Lou Harris singing "Just Can't Believe It" is beautiful. The slide guitar and orchestrations is masterful. Its the type of music where you appreciate the art and talent but it is down to earth, tap your feet and sing-along, FUN kind of music. A must for any music lover and collector.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Country-Rock must have March 16, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a very overlooked and underrated album. If your a country-rock fan you have to have this one in your collection. Many people think Craig Fuller was PPL. Larry Goshorn and George Ed Powell prove here that they were capable of carrying on without Fuller. If you like Poco,Gene Clark,Rick Roberts,the early Eagles (before they [stunk]) you'll love this one.

I fell hat over boot-heels in love with Pure Prairie League when I heard “Amie” on the Southern Fried Rock LP, circa 1980. I did not think music could get any better than that song, so I rushed out and bought the Bustin’ Out album — this time, on cassette — and realized Amie wasn’t even the best song on the album. When I bought the Two Lane Highway album, I realized Bustin’ Out wasn’t even their best album!

In the 30 years since (ouch!), there’s a not a single album of any musical genre I have enjoyed as much as Two Lane Highway. From the rocking, raucous title song to the kinetic Kansas City Southern, from the heavenly harmonies with Emmylou on Just Can’t Believe It to the light-hearted I'll Change Your Flat Tire, Merle, the album is unforgettable. The enigmatic Sister’s Keeper, however, remains my all time favorite PPL song. I could, and do, listen to it over and over.

I’ve got all their albums, including the bland later years (sorry Vince) and this one — despite my best efforts to overplay it — never fails to move me. It’s subversive country alt with a metaphysical twist … and a slide guitar.
