McGuffey Lane's eponymous debut is a strong, lean country-rock album in the tradition of Pure Prairie League -- heavy on harmonies and melodies, but built upon a country core. Unlike albums by America or the Eagles -- or even records that the group would record later -- McGuffey Lane's debut doesn't make many pop concessions; the sound isn't overly slick, there aren't many keyboards outside of a piano, there are times when the group can lay back and jam, but the focus always remains on the band's crisp, clean sound and sturdy songs. At the time, the band was too country for rock and not pop enough for country -- they came around maybe five years too late to truly be part of the wave of '70s country-rock, although they fit right in sonically -- but the high quality of those songs, delivered straightforwardly and with heart by this likeable group, are the reason why McGuffey Lane has aged well and remains a thoroughly entertaining listen.
