Great country rock in the vein of Poco and Marshall Tucker. Ouray was from the Chicago area. “Too Tall to Boogie” and “100 Years” got a fair amount of airplay on WXRT at the time…~

I present you Ouray. Musically this reminded me at times of The Marshall Tucker Band and The Outlaws, though Ouray is not a copy of those bands. The band members are: Frank Pirrucello (vocals, guitar, piano), Bo Pirrucello (vocals, pedal and Leslie steel guitars, guitar), Tom Peters (vocals, bass), Hap Harriman (vocals, lead guitar) and Ted Rawlings (vocals, drums, percussion). The album was released on Taxi Records and produced by Ouray and Eddie Cherney. Other than this, I know nothing of this band, nor could I find anything on the web. I figure they might be from Colorado… 
The production, I thought, is a little tinny, but the music well pleased me. As in, if you love Southern Rock, you won’t go wrong here. I’ll be posting their second album, “Motor Dream” from 1981,…~

These guys are from Chicago, at least Ted Rawlings is. In my now-incomprehensible youth, I saw this group perform most of “Chrome Dreams” at a bad imitation of a saloon in Evanston, IL in 1977. (Evanston is a suburb of Chicago.) I knew who drummer Ted Rawlings was - he has a rep for being the best drummer on the North Shore for several years - and had seen him play along with a fellow named Waldo Wallish in a two-drummer band that tried (sadly, unsuccessfully) to cover Frank Zappa. This was better, but a bit passe - Ouray was beaten to this punch by Heartsfield some five yeare before….~
