|Singles from Bustin' Out|
Bustin' Out is the second album by American country rock band Pure Prairie League, released by RCA Records in 1972. The album ended up becoming far more popular a couple of years after its release, during the height of the Country Rock, and Southern Rock boom of the mid-1970s. By then, band leader Craig Fuller was no longer in the band due to draft board issues.
"Amie" was released as a single in 1973, and began receiving airplay mostly on college radio stations. "Falling In and Out of Love" ends in a segue to "Amie", which then concludes with the main chorus of "Falling In and Out of Love." Because of this interrelationship, many American classic rock and AOR radio stations play the pair of songs as a single track.
The album features a guest appearance by lead guitarist Mick Ronson on the track "Angel #9".
