It's rich history goes back to 1969 in the Southern Ohio area where a group of young musicians initially played cover tunes at local bars. Original member Craig Fuller and early memer George Powell were beginning to stir their songwriting abilities around the time original drummer Tom McGail happened to catch a late night 1939 Errol Flynn flick called Dodge City. The movie's Pure Prairie League was the woman's temperance union attempting to clean up Kansas' most lawless town.
Reunited to treat us to music that sounds as good today as it did when they first performed, PPL is touring and enjoying every minute of it. PPL has been playing true to its original form. "People come to hear the music the way it was played back then," Fuller asserts. "We may have improved upon the fidelity, but when we do a song off one of our records, we do it just like it was recorded."
PPL in the new millennium may be a curious prospect to band members, but the bands longevity is a testament of the timelessness of the music. As they write for a new project,they've returned to their roots-no sax, but peddle steel- and it's no surprise that after all these years their sound is what Country Radio is about, proving good music is good music no matter when it's made or played - and you can go home again.
