New - Prine, John - German Afternoons - LP
Fittingly for a former mailman, John Prine delivered songs that are both literate and personal. The skilled and compassionate storyteller enjoyed widespread critical acclaim in the wake of his groundbreaking eponymous debut and continued to write and perform songs that became central to our American musical heritage for nearly five decades. Among the English language's premier phrase-turners with music relevant to any age, Prine's 1986 release German Afternoons is available on vinyl from Oh Boy Records for the first time since its original pressings. Revisiting the folkier-sound of his early albums, it features contributions from progressive bluegrass band New Grass Revival and Marty Stuart and includes a re-recordings of his classic cut "Paradise" from his 1971 self-titled debut.
