Best of Pure Prairie League (1995)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Aug 08, 1995; Lead Performance: Pure Prairie League; Genre: Country

If you thought that '70s-'80s country rockers Pure Prairie League were memorable only for a couple of hits (''Amie,'' ''Let Me Love You Tonight'') and that faux-Rockwell cowboy on their album covers, well, you were right. Despite the presence of Vince Gill (who fronted them from 1978 to '83), Best of Pure Prairie League is insurance-policy dull, and — this is scary — awfully similar to today's Hot Country. C
