"Still Right Here in My Heart" by Pure Prairie League

Song#:  0596
Date:  04/18/1981
Debut:  87
Peak:  28
Weeks:  14
Genre:  Country Rock

Pop Bits:  Their previous album contained their first and only Top 10 hit with "Let Me Love You Tonight" (#10), so hopes were probably high that their next release would build upon that success. This first single did some good business on the chart reaching the Top 30, but it was a far cry from their previous success and their album "Something in the Night" failed to make the Top 50 as well.

ReduxReview:  It sounds like they were moving even closer to that SoCal sound of folks like the Eagles and even Linda Ronstadt. It works fine, but the material is a bit on the bland side. It's a nicely written tune and a pleasant listen, but still nothing that makes me any further interested in the group..

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Band member and co-writer of this tune Jeff Wilson apparently has has a second career in movies. Not as an actor, but behind the scenes doing camera and other electrical work. He also has a very brief cameo in the movie "Knocked Up" in a record store scene where a Pure Prairie League LP is discussed.
