Newgrass Revival LPs are also worth collecting just for the cover art.

Never heard the group. But I've heard OF them. In fact, in the mid-1980s and finding myself between jobs, I answered an ad for someone with writing ability, who was familiar with word processors. This was at a time when not everyone and his pet chicken did practically all of their writing on a computer. I was sort of "cutting edge:"   I had a KayPro II and I was a whiz on WordStar. And I got the job, as a technical writer for the Bonneville Power Administration's residential weatherization program.

The guy who interviewed me and later became my direct boss was named Joe Taffe (rhymes with "waif"). In the course of our getting to know each other, I told him of my folk music background, and he told me that at one time he had sung with a group called "The Pure Prairie League." Unfortunately, we never had a chance to get together with a couple of hot guitars and swap a few licks.

The job came to an end when Ronnie Reagan cut the funding for the program. Thanks a bunch, Ronnie!!

Apparently they changed personnel quite a bit over the years, and I don't find Joe's name listed among the various group members. But he would have been with them pretty early on.

Man, you gotta check 'um out, Don... This band was tight with some fine vocals... Their original lead singer, Craig Fuller, went on to become the lead vocalist for Little Feat... I mean, these kid were real good...

Lead guitar was Vince Gill, I believe.

In the folly of my youth in the late '70's I believe I got lucky one night because of the song "Amy." :)
