Absolutely everything about this is class. The lyrics themselves sing enormous praise to the talent Mr. Prine delivered.

The music and vocals deliver those lyrics so perfectly.

There was a period of time in my musical journey when the bands had broken up and I simply played solo gigs in the same places. I played a lot of gigs on the local military base. The money was slim but the crowds generally made it a big party. John Prine was in my set lists. Especially Sam Stone and Paradise. The guys from Kentucky and the vets who'd been to "Nam" liked Sam Stone. Rarely a night went by that I didn't have someone in the crowd calling out pay that song about Kentucky or play that song about the hole in daddy's arm.

I like the tribute you wrote for John. He was certainly a writer who didn't care about the commercial aspect of the industry but still make a permanent mark on so many people's hearts. That's what writing songs is all about anyway. Planting a little piece of yourself into the souls of others.

James - those are some really nice things to hear. Thank you so much...

The first time Janice heard this she teared up immediately. Tribute songs flow when such a luminary passes but we cannot imagine a more moving one than this. The lyric and the arrangement so artfully and passionately capture the spirit of the man. And they also capture the spirit of the man who wrote and produced this song and how John influenced him initially and later in his life.

We already mentioned the arrangement (as have others) but it remarkably captures the essence of so many of his songs with instrumentation...most notably the build.

This truly deserves to be heard and loved by many.

J&B

PS: I (Bud) was 25 and it was 1971 and my group of friends were prone to hang out at the local record store. And it was there I first saw his first album. I don't recall why I bought it but I was hooked from the get go and remain so.

To this day I can't imagine an album with more great songs on it. The bar was raised so high with it.

This is a lovely song Floyd. I'm not familiar enough with John Prine to appreciate all the nuances and nods in your song but I really enjoyed your performance.
Somehow, John Prine is one songwriter that I missed on my trip through music but you and Bob have stoked my interest, and, thanks to Spotify, I have his whole catalogue to explore.
Love your background preamble too.
Cheers,
Mike

FJ,
Passionate and very "in spirit" tribute. Excellent lyrics. Arrangement and performance is top shelf. Liked it! Thank you for sharing.

P.S. I listened to "Summer's End" and it made me think, if he stayed with us, what kind of song he would write about the situation we are in now? I guess, he left it to his followers...

Misha.

Yeah, all the usual "high bars" exceeded once again. If you would like me to elaborate on that; I will gladly. I just have a feeling others will as well.

Amazing song. Chills and tears...no lie.

Thank you for bringing us into a piece of your story!


Caaron - Thanks for the fine comments. It means a lot that folks (like you) think that the song reflects well how I feel about Prine and the influence that he had on me (and others). From all I've ever read he was a fine a human being as he was a songwriter...

Masterfully written, arranged and performed, Floyd. Love the way you built the excitement. Cool story about the radio station's basement treasures.

A flashback to better days. And yes, John Prine's contributions to songwriting have few equals. He reminded me of Tom T.

In another way, I can contrast him with Harlan Howard: very prolific, just gets to the heart of the story and offers stories about the common man that so many can relate to.

This is one of my very favorites from you.The lyric says so much without over-complicating things. The gradual build of the backing tracks ... waiting until the last quarter of the song to introduce the drums. I love songs that start out teasingly soft and, increment by increment add just enough new backing, at the perfect places, to build the tension and interest. In other words, also something new to anticipate and when it arrives, you just gotta say, "Wow, this gets better and better - can't wait to hear the rest of it."

Other than my time with Di, this is the best three minutes I've enjoyed in quite some time. Many thanks for that.

Wishing you and yours the very best. Please stay safe.

Alan

PS: Di and I were tested for COVID 19. Both came back negative.


Alan - if you are ever going to be "negative" that is certainly the best way to do it! Glad to hear that.

Thanks for the very fine review. It is much appreciated!! As I said earlier...John's passing made me sad...

I enjoyed reading your backstory and will take the hint; there`s some JP nuggets there I surely missed.

Robert


I appreciate that, Robert. And to reiterate... Prine's first record is THE essential Prine - all of his best work is in that one album...

I'm a big fan of Mr. Prine and his first album was one, if not his best, album. I think every song on that album is a classic.

This is a fantastic tribute to a fantastic storyteller. You my friend are second to none when it comes to storytelling through a song.

This is super.

Just stellar. Excellent write, among your best. And really fitting tribute to JP. Topped by your usual expert production and you’ve got one outstanding tune. Killer!

Hope all is well in your world,

Your song sounds like it could have come from one of the "Every Which Way But Loose" movie sound tracks.
Really cool vibe brother...


Thanks, Bawb... Had to go look up that soundtrack to see what was on it...that's been a while...late 70' - so the time frame sorta matches...

Thanks, Leon. It is nice to know that "true fans" find this "Prine-like" - as that was intended, of course...
