This album focuses mainly on the latter day PPL when Craig Fuller had been replaced as the main singer/songwriter by Larry Goshorn and then Jeff Wilson and Vince Gill. The material then is just what you'd expect from Vince Gill given his solo output - a mixture of good rockin' stuff with some great guitar and quite schmaltzy country. The singing is of great quality throughout with impeccable harmonies. The production is very polished and if you are not really a country-rock fan you could find this album inoffensive but also bland. It certainly lacks the edge of the PPL material on the classic 'Bustin' out' for example. All that said it's a welcome addition to my collection (at a reasonable price) and it compliments the PPL 'Anthology' on Camden very well with only three tracks duplicated, 'Falling in and out of love', 'Two lane highway' and the sublime 'Amie'. Of the later material 'Something in the night', 'I'll be damned' and especially 'Im almost ready' stand out.

HASH(0xa2032d80) out of 5 stars Non-essential From Pioneers of Progressive Country-Rock 3 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Pure Prairie League transcends three periods; with Craig Fuller, without Craig Fuller, and with Vince Gill. With that said, this collection was produced too soon - their first and forth albums weren't even re-released on CD at the time - and is way too heavily based on the later, declining years of the band, after change had altered their musical direction. There are only four songs representing the band's first four albums, which are generally considered far superior. Even though the music is still good, it can't be called an anthology because it isn't comprehensive enough and the "Best Of...." entitlement just doesn't fit. The groups "Best" songs appeared on the exquisite un-represented first album "Pure Prairie League" and its comparatively appealing second effort "Bustin' Out". The hit "Amie" - track 1 - and "Fallin' In And Out Of Love" - track 2 - do appear in this collection, from "Bustin' Out",! but the latter tune, originally the prelude to "Amie", is mis-appropriately placed here. The redeeming value from the remaining 9 songs may be of historical significance since the lead vocal is predominantly Vince Gill. This set probably includes all you need from the latest recordings but do acquire the first four albums; "Pure Prairie League/If The Shoe Fits" (on one CD), "Bustin' Out", and "Two Lane Highway".

HASH(0xa4d176b4) out of 5 stars Who's idea was it to put Amie first and Fallin' after? 8 Jan. 2004
By Misty W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of my alltime favorite albums because I fell in love with PPL just before the Vince Gill era and then I loved them even more as they created two fantastic albums featuring him (ladies, he was sweetly chunky with long beautiful dark brown hair and beautiful green eyes and you would have loved him like you do now anyway - heaven knows I did).
That said, there are only 3 small problems with this album, which honestly folks, do not stop it from being a MUST OWN for every country music fan. Here are the problems...the first one is a crucial mistake to me and should be to all true PPL fans.
1) Helloooooo? The song, "Fallin' In and Out of Love" should come immediately before "Amie" and NOT, no NEVER, after it?!?! Is it possible that the original members of PPL had nothing to do with the release of this compilation? Why in the world did the producers put these songs in the WRONG order when they got it right on every other PPL album?

2) Even though I consider myself a HUGE PPL fan, I have always HATED their version of "That'll Be the Day" so I have to program my CD player to skip it after I program it to play the #1 & #2 tracks in the appropriate order (see 1 above).
3) You cannot call this the best of PPL and leave out "I'll Fix Your Flat Tire Merle". The great song that puts the phenomenal egoed, once-great Merle Haggard gently and humorously in his place is sorely missing from this compilation and other "Greatest Hits" treatments for this band.
Otherwise and ANYWAY, buy this album! Vince Gill never sounded better than on "Still Right Here In My Heart" and "I'll Be Damned" (although Janny Lou is a little embarrassing nowadays since the name Amy Grant doesn't rhyme in the same way). "Amie" and "Two Lane Highway" are still fabulous after all these years and not even retro-vintage fabulous, but just plain fabulous in their own rights.
Finally, let me just say that the wanna be bands out there like Alabama and Lone Star could have learned a thing or two from the obvious joy PPL took in doing what they did so well regardless of whether the money rolled in or not. It is a crying shame for those of us who love PPL and could have truly enjoyed a greater volume of their music that they were poorly handled and marketed when they were at their peak. So, bottom line? Enjoy this stuff folks. It's all there is and it doesn't get any better than this!!

HASH(0xa203b720) out of 5 stars Amie? Really? 3 May 2012
By Disneywld - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Okay, I agree that the producers really screwed up on the order of Amie and Falling In and Out of Love, but that is an easy correction on iTunes and other media players - just switch the tracks. When I listened to these two songs my ear seemed to fail me. Two hours later, and some RCA hookups, I played my vinyl record from the err... time period. Sorry, folks, it just ain't the same as the broadcast version. Sad, because this is the set of songs that I believe made this group so well known. Everybody who was anybody loved the pairing of these two songs.

This CD is not a loser though as there are precious tracks contained within. Vince, you rock, and I loved hearing your outstanding voice on many of the tracks. Well, I'll be dishing out some more cash to get the correct recording of Falling In and Out of Love and Amie.

HASH(0xa4d18dc4) out of 5 stars Always A Fan of the classic oldies... 1 Jun. 2008
By Crafty12player - Published on Amazon.com

Pure Prairie League has always been one of my favorite early "rock" groups though today they would be considered country.Even today their songs are great listening and inspirational.I'm a big listner of Vince Gill and several years ago learned that he had performed and written with the group which made me want to buy this album even more.It brings back great memories of my early rock years.
