Legendary Mr. John Prine Self Titled Album Is 50.

Just Announced:
John Prine Plays John Prine
Limited Edition Box Set

Watching this video here I re fell in love with this album and how hollow it is to have to listen to it knowing Mr. John is gone. I cannot begin to elaborate how many hours I have spent studying this man and his life. His high points and his tragedies as well have solidified him as a true enigma of the music world.

This first album was actually the work of Mr. Kris Kristofferson calling the record label and telling them to straight out sign him, and they did. Many of these songs he played all the way until his death. I myself have watched him play all of these in different shows all through my life.

I spend al lot of time listening to music and studying music, and I spend a lot of time attending shows. My entire home is set up to study music and to display my appreciation of it as well. To say that Mr. John Prine was not a major part of the initial beginning of that would be wrong.
