PPL’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 member George Powell were beginning to hone their songwriting skills around the time original drummer Tom McGrail happened to catch a late-night Errol Flynn movie called “Dodge City”. The film’s “Pure Prairie League” was a woman’s temperance union attempting to clean up Kansas’ most lawless town.
Reunited to treat us to music that sounds even better today than 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.
PPL in the new millennium may be a curious prospect to some, but the bands longevity is a testament to the timelessness of the music. As they write for a new project, they’ve returned to their roots–no sax, but pedal steel master John David Call returning–and it’s no surprise that after all these years their sound is what Country Radio is all about, proving that good music is good music no matter when it’s made or played–and you can go home again.
