Music Monday: Early Pure Prairie League and Vince Gill

Posted By on January 18, 2021

I’ve always enjoyed the Ohio-founded group called Pure Prairie League and most of their albums, as well as the other groups from their era who blended popular ppllogorock with the country VinceGill1980music sound (including NGDB). For Music Monday this week, I’ll included a couple song with the great Vince Gill just as he was getting his start. He began his early career singing with PPL in 1979, appearing on that band’s album Can’t Hold Back. He was the lead singer on their popular song, "Let Me Love You Tonight." Oh … and who doesn’t love their Norman Rockwell/Saturday Evening Post cover with cowpoke “Sad Luke.”

Of course there are a lot of great Pure Prairie League songs and live video on the Internet so here’s a YouTube clip of their well loved “Amie” (Live) with Vince Gill (below the break) … as well as a remastered audio mp3.
