    amazing CD

    Love every song on this CD. My brother owned it, and after staying with him and listening to this CD - I was totally hooked and had to get my own copy! I highly recommend it- the songs never get old.

    Am I really the first???

    It is so hard to imagine that I am actually the first person to take the time to write a review on this absolutely excellent CD! Why??? The songs on this disc are all wonderful, so much so that it is hard to narrow it down and comment on just one of the tunes. John Prine singing with such awesome talented women-Icons of the music world...EmmyLou, Lucinda, Iris, Trisha, etc...I truly wonder why more people don't seem to be more familiar with this most talented man/singer/songwriter/entertainer/survivor. He has lived, he has loved, he has hurt, he has felt, all shows through his music. I am looking forward to seeing John for the fourth time on 4/2/04 in Reading, Pa. I have seen him 3 times-all of those shows in Philadelphia, and I always left his shows with a big smile on my face, and great satisfaction about my time spent at his show! Now, he is soon coming to the Sovereign Performing Arts Center in Reading, Pa- much closer to my home town! When I got the notification from Oh Boy Records that he would be performing so close to home, I was totally thrilled! John's lyrics and uplifting music have always had the most positive effect on me, and on anyone who is fortunate enough to experience his great talent, so much that I am sure that all who listen to him or see him will leave his show with a huge smile on their face, and a happy heart-satisfaction guaranteed. This CD, and all of his shows are worth so much more than monetary value-he speaks and feels of real life---you have my word!!!!
