Back in 1972-73 the DJ’s were calling
Pure Prairie League “Prairie Music.” I became
well-aquainted with them in 1975-76, when
they receved a lot of airplay on FM pop and
rock radio stations. They also do a more straight
country rock & a more familiar, pop sound, too.
Well, we’re having a “Pure Prairie League revival”!

MIX: Pure Prairie League
Early Morning Riser

Back in 1972-73 the DJ’s were calling
Pure Prairie League “Prairie Music”
but they also do a more
straight country rock & a more
familiar, pop sound, too.

The Daily Walk with Love (Link to Home page and blog), updated May 7, 2020, by Paul Evans, video is Pure Prairie League – Early Morning Riser (playlist). I thought today I’d have a “Pure Prairie League revival” and give my younger readers a real treat.

I didn’t much become aware of Pure Prairie League and their clean, crisp, wistful or mournful music until mid-1975 when I went to college. The song “Early Morning Riser” is a particular favorite of mine and has been since the mid-seventies. Pure Prairie league got a LOT of FM airplay even on rock stations and I loved their music. Really, if I’m honest, I was drawn to buy my first Pure Prairie League album as a sort of “shot in the dark” based only on the name of the group and the cowboy on the cover. I have been glad I took a chance ever since. Listening to it again brings back the glory days of my first few years of college. See what you think of Pure Prairie League, give them a chance and you won’t be sorry.

The first Pure Prairie League album came in 1972 and was called “Bustin Out” (Amazon, my favorite of theirs), and this was followed the next year by another really good one, in their early “prairie music” incarnation, “Two Lane Highway” (also the Amazon.com purchase page — The links point to Amazon.com downloads of those mp3 albums.) Two Lane Highway is more of a country-rock” sound. Then, to many people’s sadness, or at least mine, they went mainstream pop and had one or two hit songs along those lines, but never attained to the popular and critical acclaim of those first two albums. However, they are still together and still touring. In their newest “incarnation” they return quite a bit to the old Pure Prairie League sound, so I want soon to investigate new albums by them.

Check out the official Pure Prairie League website. Again, I wouldn’t call the overall sound of the early Pure Prairie League quite “country rock” as Wikipedia does, really they are their own genre which people and DJ’s at the time were actually calling “prairie music,” and yes, the album covers and sound IS a kind of “cowboy music.” Wikipedia does have a very nice succinct summary of Pure Prairie League as follows:

Pure Prairie League is an American country rock band whose roots go back to 1965 and Waverly, Ohio, with Craig Fuller, Tom McGrail, Jim Caughlan, and John David Call. In 1970 McGrail named the band after a fictional 19th century temperance union featured in the 1939 Errol Flynn cowboy film Dodge City. The band had five consecutive Top 40 LPs in the 1970s and added a sixth in the 1980s. The band has had a long run, active from the 1970s through the late 1980s and was revived in the late 1990s for a time, then again in 2004. As of 2016, they are still doing at least 100 shows a year.

Amazon.com has a nice selection of mp3 albums by Pure Prairie League, including a greatest hits album. If you prefer the iTunes format, pick up these great tunes at Apple music. Check out the group on Facebook.

Here is a list (search results) of all Pure Prairie League music on YouTube, where the music is always free. Though there are a lot more ads in the music videos on YouTube than there used to be, I have always joked that YouTube is a “communist plot” because there is so very much free music to listen to there. They say people upload a million videos a day to YouTube. Wow. The folks who run YouTube must be among the good guys on the internet. It must drive the record companies nuts, I know many labels tolerate it, though, as it’s actually good publicity and must lead to a lot of sales. God Bless you folks! “The best things in life, like love, are free.”
