Format: Audio CD
Following the country-rock trail blazed by the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Poco and the Flying Burrito Brothers, Pure Prairie League threw its hat into the ring with its self-titled debut in March of 1972. It was full of wonderful songs like the steel guitar-driven "Tears" and the aching "It's All on Me." Despite positive critical praise, the album (and the single "Woman") failed to chart.
Three months later the Eagles release their debut and chart no fewer than three singles. Convinced that the band is on the right track, co-founders Craig Fuller and George Powell would return to the studio with a revamped Pure Prairie League and turn out the best album of their career, Bustin' Out, seven months after their debut. [All but one song, "Leave My Heart Alone," are included here.] In addition to their signature song, "Amie," the album contained "Jazzman," "Early Morning Riser," "Boulder Skies" and "Call Me, Tell Me." Even though the album's songs were as good as anything by the Eagles and the album reached No. 34 on the charts, Pure Prairie Leage continued to remain in relative obscurity. If talent had anything to do with hit singles, these guys would have been as big as the Eagles. Instead, by early 1973 they were dropped by RCA. [Ironically, "Amie" became an FM radio hit in 1975 and eventually reached No. 27 on the pop charts, resulting in RCA's re-signing the band.]
When their third album, Two Lane Highway, was released, Fuller was out and new lead guitarist-singer Larry Goshorn was at the helm. His "Two Lane Highway" is probably the best track from that album.

Format: Audio CD
Let's face it: The Pure Prairie league released only
two good albums, their first two.
But the second of those was a true corker: "Bustin'
Out". The not-so-secret weapon that elevated those first albums
was singer/writer Craig Fuller. Once Fuller departed, following
the second album, Pure Prairie releases were dull and pedestrian
countrified bar-band stuff.
This compilation wiseley draws primarily from those first
two worthwhile efforts and, as it includes all but a single
lackluster track from "Bustin' Out", basically replaces that
album as the must-own in the Pure Prairie League catalogue.
Along with almost all of "Bustin' Out" you get a the best
tracks from the first album, a pleasant non-LP b-side from the
same era, and a few tracks from later RCA albums that prove
to any doubters that it was all over once Craig Fuller left.
Most anyone can start and end their Pure Prairie League
collection with this album...

The sound quality is the worst of any post-70's CD in my collection. I have CD's recorded in the forties that sound better than this! Either the master tape has been lost or someone won't part with it long enough for a digital transfer to be made. This sounds like a copy of a copy of a copy of the master, and made on poor equipment to boot. This, however, is our reality, like it or not, and if you're like me and you must own it "for better or worse", then you'll pull out your wallet and be happy with it because the individual CD's that this is culled from don't sound any better. (sigh)

Let's try a fresh approach--an unbiased , accurate review of PPL's musical history and the contents of this CD.

Did you ever hear of a Greatest Hits CD that virtually ignores a groups most successful years , fails to recognize the music which the overwhelming majority of the band's fan base supported or includes a song never previously released on any LP ( SHE DARKED THE SUN ) , while leaving out the only top ten hit they had ( LET ME LOVE YOU TONIGHT ) as well as numerous other songs which hit both rock and country charts ? I didn't think so.That is exactly the case here.

In the 70's many country rock bands came and went.PPL, however, not only benefitted from personnel changes, they actually thrived on it.PPL was a national presence on the music scene from the mid 70's into the 80's,well received by fans and media,establishing a tremendous legacy of excellent country rock which still stands tall today.

The music on this CD is terrific, taken almost solely from PPL's first two releases in 1972. It features the brilliance of singer/songwriter Craig Fuller as well as the peerless pedal steel of John David Call, although not nearly to the extent he deserves.He's one of the steel legends, arguably the best.He is deserving of far more exposure than we get here.Tracks 5-12 , from the classic Bustin' Out ( see my Bustin' Out review for more details)showcase why Fuller is known as one of the best in the business. The first 4 tracks from PPL's incredible debut LP are led by Tears and You're Between Me, two exceptional songs which showcase the Fuller/Call connection.Track 13, She Darked The Sun, is a great one which RCA failed to include on the 8 song debut LP.Yet it is here on a greatest hits ! That's RCA for you.
