Two time Grammy-award winner John Prine is a singer songwriter who, from his eponymously titled first LP release in 1971, has continued to write and perform songs that have become central to our American musical heritage.

Classics such as "Angel from Montgomery," "Sam Stone," "Paradise," and "Hello in There" speak to the everyday experience of ordinary people with a simple honesty, and an extraordinary ability to get right through to the heart of the listener. This reissue, first released in 1999, features duets with Lucinda Williams, Connie Smith, Iris DeMent, Emmylou Harris, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, Dolores Keane, Melba Montgomery, and Pine's wife, Fiona.

Long considered a "songwriter’s songwriter," Prine is a rare talent whose writing is greatly admired by his peers. Performers who have recorded from his extensive catalog, include Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez, George Strait, Old Crow Medicine Show, Norah Jones, Bette Midler, Miranda Lambert and many others.

With his career spanning more than 40 years Prine continues to perform at sold out shows all over the US, Canada, and Europe. Among the many awards and accolades John has received in recent times include is his 2003 induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, an Americana Lifetime Achievement Award for songwriting and was honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser. Prine has become for many, not just a well loved and appreciated songwriter, but a bonafide American treasure.

Bad pressing

This album contains great music but the pressing is bad. Side A is distorted in many sections and sounds awful while side B is fine. I have heard 2 copies of this same record and they both have the same defects. I will have to listen to my CD version to hear a clear recording.
