Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 452/500!
This debut album from the 2x Grammy winning artist, John Prine, celebrates its 45th anniversary with a Limited Edition 180g vinyl LP pressing. In 2012, the album was added to Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time ranked at number 452.
Forty-five years into a remarkable career that has drawn effusive praise from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and others who would know, Prine is a smiling, shuffling force for good. He is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member whose classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized as part of the Recording Academy's Grammy Hall of Fame.
"A revelation upon its release, this album is now a collection of standards: "Illegal Smile," "Hello in There," "Sam Stone," "Donald and Lydia," and, of course, "Angel from Montgomery." Prine's music, a mixture of folk, rock, and country, is deceptively simple, like his pointed lyrics, and his easy vocal style adds a humorous edge that makes otherwise funny jokes downright hilarious." - William Ruhlmann, allmusic.com
