Excellent.

I was only amazed of one tiny thing: At the time you sing "i left him back some time ago, to find what i thought he didn't know" there was also a mandoline coming in. But only for this line or even less. And it didn't come back. So a very short performance of that instrument. How come? I'm pretty sure you had an idea with that. I guessed that mr Prine did these kind of things too, but that wasn't the case as far as I could hear from several videos on YouTube. So tell me what were your considerations?

Thanks for the song,
Hans


Thanks, Hans. What you are hearing as a mandolin is an acoustic guitar - 3198:Guitar, Acoustic, Soloist PopBalladBrent Ev 065. The short phrase that you refer to is simply an interlude between the end of the first chorus and the opening of the 2nd verse (a time honored tradition). That guitar is, in fact, used again later - leading in to the solo and then as the soloist in the 2nd half of the solo...

Greg - I consider you a great songwriter. So this review is especially pleasing. smile And here's hoping you live a VERY long time - if I'll only have a few months to write that tribute!!

Thanks, TM. Love that you remember the number. A classic, for sure...

Hi Floyd,

Late as ever to this one! Normally I'd be teaching for two days each week, so I thought
I'd have lots more spare time during lock-down, but somehow it hasn't worked out that way.

Anyway, here now and I have to thank you for introducing me to John Prine - I must confess that
I'd never heard his name, or one of his songs, until now. So, to put matters right I Googled him,
read his wiki, checked out some of his back catalogue and became a fan.

And your song is an excellent tribute. Great choice of RTs and nice arrangement which builds almost
imperceptibly behind the harmony vocal. Beautifully sung as ever. Faultless mix.

Nice solo....

Stay safe.
ROG.

That's a fine tribute to your mentor, I never knew/heard of John Prine but I did google him and yes , you can hear his style and ways in yourself Floyd.

Another excellent all rounder.

Thanks

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.


Thanks for such nice comments. It is especially nice coming from someone who was a fan from the get-go. That first record has no equal...

Love your background preamble too.
Cheers,
Mike


Thanks, Mike. If I can be a part of someone taking the time to listen to Prine's work, that is go enough for me. As I have said many times through this thread (and through my lifetime) that 1st record is really the one to hear. It is a masterpiece. (The rest of his catalog pales in comparison - anyone's would..)

Thanks, Misha...

As usual, outstanding work here. I'm glad I read your entire notes before I listened to it. Very moving tribute.

So many good lines in this. (It' almost as if you could be a professional songwriter, if you tried.) smile Seriously, great job on this. I agree with HearToLearn's "Leader Of The Band" comparison (another great song).

I don't really know what else to say, you always hit it out of the park. But this one may just be the longest drive yet. (But then, I'm a sucker for the more personal, from deep in the heart kind of songs.)

Thanks for writing this!

Steve

This is super.


Thanks, Mario. I agree that first album was a classic, no question. Thanks for the kind words...

floyd,

I haven't listened to John Prine so I can't compare your songs to his songs.
Apart from that, this song is great as usual.
And once again, I realize that everybody has his predecessor to worship.
I deeply felt your tribute to John Prine, even though I didn't know him.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Thanks, ROG. One of the truly satisfying things about having done a tribute to John Prine is being able to introduce him to a few people who hadn't listened to his music previously... (and as I've said several times...his first record is the one to really key on - above all else...)
