Real Gone Music reissue of the Craig Fuller/Eric Kaz release.

Craig Fuller/Eric Kaz: Craig Fuller/Eric Kaz (Expanded Edition). CD



Craig Fuller and Eric Kaz had already teamed up in American Flyer (along with Blood, Sweat & Tears’ Steve Katz and the Velvet Underground’s Doug Yule) before they collaborated on this 1978 album, but their pedigrees went way farther back than that band.

Fuller made his debut with J.D. Blackfoot in 1970 and co-founded Pure Prairie League (for whom he wrote “Amie” among other PPL classics), while Kaz had cut his teeth with Children of Paradise (along with Happy and Artie Traum) before joining Blues Magooes for two records and cutting two solo records for Atlantic.

Liner notes by Ed Osborne featuring quotes from Craig Fuller and Eric Kaz round out the release, which is remastered at Sony’s own Battery Studios. The long out-of print Japanese reissue sells for hundreds, and we mean hundreds of dollars-this one’s a must for anybody into the SoCal country rock scene of the ’70s.
