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 ›

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.

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!

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.

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.

THIS ALBUM HAS ABOUT THE BEST YOU CAN GET FROM PPL, LARRY AND TIM GOSHORN WHO WROTE AND PERFORMED MOST OF THIS ALBUM ARE STILL AT IT, PLAYING IN THEIR HOMETOWN OF CINCINNATI, AS THE GOSHORN BRO'S. THEY HAVE HAD SEVERAL CD RELEASES UNDER THIS NAME, AND ALSO HAVE A WEBSITE. IF YOU EVER ENJOYED PPL, CHECK OUT THE GOSHORN BRO'S ALSO. AS IT HAS BEEN SAID BEFORE, THESE GUYS SHOULD HAVE BEEN CHART-TOPPERS IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY. I WOULD NOT COMPARE THIS ALBUM WITH ANYTHING FOR GREAT SOUTHERN ROCK.
