Rhino's rockin' Start Your Ear Off Right campaign returns with vinyl titles from some of the most celebrated acts in music including: Alice Cooper, Aretha Franklin, Dio, Golden Smog, John Prine, New York Rock And Soul Revue, Richard And Linda Thompson, The Notorious B.I.G., Vangelis, and ZZ Top.
John Prine is a singer songwriter who, from his eponymously titled first LP release in 1971, has continued to write and perform songs that have become central to our American musical heritage. His work speaks to the everyday experience of ordinary people with a simple honesty, and an extraordinary ability to get right through to the heart of the listener.
Back on vinyl for the first time since 1973, Prine's Arif Mardin-produced third album Sweet Revenge is much more rooted in rock 'n' roll than its predecessors and the master storyteller's signature cynicism also takes over for good here. Highlights include "Please Don't Bury Me," "Christmas in Prison," "Dear Abbey," "Blue Umbrella," and "A Good Time."
