The film Almost Famous is set in 1973, a time when rock and roll was about to evolve into a lumbering, arena-conquering dinosaur. Director Cameron Crowe--who was himself a teenage rock journalist for Rolling Stone magazine--has applied his own first-hand knowledge of the 1970s rock scene and co-produced a soundtrack that neatly encapsulates an era in rock and roll history. Contributions from Simon and Garfunkel ("America") and the Beach Boys ("Feel Flows") nod to a gentler musical scene on its way out, while tracks by Lynyrd Skynyrd ("Simple Man"), the Allman Brothers Band ("One Way Out") and Led Zeppelin ("That's The Way") indicate the shape of rock to come. Meanwhile, David Bowie's version of "I'm Waiting for the Man" hints at the glam scene lurking just around the corner, and Clarence Thomas's "Slip Away" provides an example of perfect 1970s soul. Even Almost Famous's fictitious house band, Stillwater, contribute a track: the nicely retro, guitar-rocking "Fever Dog". --Robert Burrow

On the whole this is a good CD, but if you're expecting to hear on it every song that you hear in the film you may be disappointed!
To answer the question. Pete Droge is the name of the singer/guitarist, Elaine Summers is the woman's name. Droge formed a group with U.S. singer-songwriters and guitarists Shawn Mullins and Matthew Sweet in 2003 under the name The Thorns and they released an album called -- The Thorns.
Director Cameron Crowe said the 'Small-Time Blues' performance was a tribute to Gram Parsons who died later in the year that the film is set, 1973. I guess Ms. Summers is meant to be Emmylou Harris.
I was looking for America by Simon And Garfunkel and noticed it on this compilation.
As far as I/m concerned It's up there with Bridge Over Troubled Water as their best ever recording and then Elton John's Tiny Dancer is another wonderful song.
With The Who, Yes, The Beach Boys, The Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynrd, Led Zeppelin, Cat Stevens and Thunderclap Newman all providing less well known stuff, this is a very varied and interesting CD.
