All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rhino's Great Days: The John Prine Anthology is an excellent summary of John Prine's prime period, from his sublime 1971 eponymous debut to 1991's Missing Years. This appropriately draws heavily from his early recordings including the aforementioned debut, but it also does a terrific job of finding songs on uneven albums, while giving weight to such classic albums as Bruised Orange.

    It's John Prines anthology for Christs sake.

    Yeah it's a great album. You could make an album of John Prines worst songs, and most songwriters who heard it would quit the business. Because next to those songs, they'd be a ''whiter shade of pale''.

    Finally, An ESSENTIAL Anthology

    Since I have purchased this recording, it has been in my cd changer. This anthology truly showcases John Prine, one of the greatest songwriters of our time. The selections never get tired, the words continually reveal new levels. Buy this. You won't regret it.
