John Prine

When I first got involved at the old St. James 'Y' in the mid-1970s I was introduced to John Prine.
For the next decade I collected a lot of his albums (still do) and learned a lot of his songs by heart. We sang on the camp bus, around the camp fire and when we cleaned the high rises at camp.

Here's one of Prine's best-known songs Dear Abby (Just click on 'slow download' for the mp3).

This version was recorded live at Rockefeller's, Houston, Texas on Feb. 6, 1984

If you want the full show drop me an email and fire you the link.

To learn more about Prine here's his bio courtesy of his label Oh Boy Records.

Cheers, Bruce
