5th Studio Album Reissued On 180g Vinyl LP!

Storm Windows is the fifth album by American folk singer and songwriter John Prine, released in 1978. Bruised Orange is regarded as one of Prine's strongest collection of songs and received generally positive reviews when it was released. Writing in Rolling Stone in 1978, Jay Cocks proclaimed that "Steve Goodman is likely the best and certainly the most congenial producer Prine has ever had" and added "No matter when you play it, Bruised Orange carries the chill of Midwest autumn beyond autobiography...into a kind of personal pop mythology."

Despite some brilliant songs, Prine's followup albums to his stunning debut were uneven until this, his fifth, produced by his friend Steve Goodman. Here, Prine's always finely-tuned sense of absurdity once again collides with his ability to depict pain sympathetically for a whole album, typified by 'That's the Way That the World Goes 'Round,' a neat statement of his philosophy, and 'Sabu Visits the Twin Cities Alone,' perhaps the best depiction ever written of life on the road in the entertainment business.
