Album cover: Bustin' Out (Pure Prairie League)

Pure Prairie League — Bustin’ Out

This album was very pop­u­lar down in Hoptown when I was in high school. Though it was a bit coun­try it was well record­ed with sev­er­al catchy tunes such as “Falling In and Out of Love” and “Amie.”

Recorded in Toronto and strings arranged by Mick Ronson of David Bowie and Bob Dylan fame, it is coun­try with an inter­na­tion­al flair. This will be a real treat for those who have nev­er heard it and will bring back some good feel­ings for those who have. Enjoy.
