Hey Kudzu and WWCD: let us know how the new Prine duets record is. I was so close to picking it up today (just got American Band and Hendrix- Machine Gun), and I decided I'd wait to hear about it. Some of the names turned me off. Love Krauss and Tedeschi, etc. but some of the other names like Lambert and Mattea turned me off. Hey, if it is good it is good.

I haven't listened yet but I read somewhere that the first 20 minutes or so is nothing but Maron. I have never listened to his program but did enjoy hearing him as a guest on Fresh Air a few months back.

I believe he starts all of the episodes solo then does a little intro then starts the interview. He seems to aways get sidetracked and can never stop interrupting his guests though.He only bugged me once on this one....when John Prine is telling the story about working with Steve Cropper and Duck Dunn.....just shut up.
Other than that it was great. I love listening to Prine talk about his dad and their Kentucky roots.

I've only had the chance for one listen so far and I really like it. As I was telling Worldwide Bill the other day, I've been buying so much music in recent months that it's pert near impossible to give albums the multiple plays they deserve. I know, first world problems :lol:

Conversion: CD > EAC(secure) > WAV > SHN
*wav files checked with shntool (no fix needed) and encoded with mkwACT

any song help send to usalai@nycap.rr.com
thanks to peter hedeman for the feed.

original lineage: pre-FM sbd > cassette master > cdr

original notes:

Pre-FM feed from WLIR-FM recording truck
All stage mics wired to air mix soundboard in recording truck to
Maxell XLII cassette (no dolby) on a (then brand spankin' new)
Nakamichi 550 cassette machine.

Note...My cassettes have held up over the years better than the
master reels of these shows.
The master 1/4" reels (recorded on Ampex 456 grand master tape)
would need to be literally "baked" in order to squeeze out one
final play as the oxide flakes off the tape!

notes on the remaster by EN
10.10.2016

JP is turning a milestone 70 on the 10th day of this 10th month, so in honor of that septoccasion I ran this through the machines a bit and tried to free the high end from the compressed, claustrophobic sound it previously featured. Because this appears to be a stage-mic situation, with the vocal mics fed through the board for that singing-up-front type radio concert vibe, the band comes through a little on the muddy side on the ensemble tunes. I smashed it up between a taste of the Graphic EQ and Graphics Dynamics tools in Sound Forge 9, and smoothed out the volume track to track, as it was somewhat this side of all over the place. Additionally, I stripped in, and matched the best I could, the very beginning of Paradise, which was missing from this tape.... I used the Bottom Line, NYC FM broadcast of 2 days before (July 11th) of which I saw a boot CD the other day in Amoeba Berkeley. Now it seems a tad more like the typical, balanced pre-FM fare we all know and love so well. I titled and tagged the files like I always do, made new fingerprints, and I separated the radio intro by (WLIR legend of my youth) Larry Kleinman, so you can get right to the music if you want.

This is captured at the height of John's mythical BRUISED ORANGE tour, and I think I got it into a sonic territory less distinguishable from an official live record and more towards a quality worthy of the exquisite and intimate performance, taped as it was at one of the all-time legendary, long-gone clubs of the fast-passing Golden Age. At least it's an improvement and likely sounds a Maywood acre or two better than the condition I found it in. Anyway, enjoy and a million more fish and whistles to songwriting deity of distinction John Prine, before he is at last seen off to Heaven.

..I hear ya WHCD- loud and clear. Preoccupied with other things going on this busy early autumn, I forgot to check my mail on Saturday. On Sunday, I realized that I had the new Dexateens in my mailbox. All I know is that American Band trumps everything these days when it comes to multiple listens. ;)

I love Kathy Mattea and I think you can do a lot worse than Miranda Lambert, although she did reject my drunken flirting back when I was like 17. First and only time I ever lost a job and been kicked out of an area in one fell swoop.

"Prime Prine" was one of the most listened to records of my youth and was probably the single biggest influence on the type of music I've always gravitated towards. It bridged my love of music and literature. To me, he's in that rare class with Dylan, Kristofferson, Clark and Van Zandt on the Mt. Rushmore of songwriters; I think McMurtry, Hood, Cooley, Snider, Williams, maybe Shires or Isbell are the today's "equivalent".

Sweet Revenge on an old homemade 8-track was my proper introduction to Prine but my first purchase was Prime Prine. This was also around the same time that I was into Steve Goodman, Jerry Jeff Walker, Michael Murphey, Jimmy Buffett, David Allan Coe, Emmylou, Gram/Burritos, Waylon, Willie, etc. Guy Clark came later but I put him into the same category as one of my favorite songwriters, same for Billy Joe Shaver (though I didn't buy any of his records until the 90's). Steve Earle would be another. As for current favorites, that's one I'd have to think on for a spell...

I listened to "Common Sense" a couple times this week and was reminded how cool "Saddle In The Rain" is. Such a neat chord progression and arrangement.
"He Was In Heaven Before He Died" also belongs in the upper tier of Prine songs, but seems to get overlooked.

My girlfriend is on a weekend trip in the Ozark mountains in northern Arkansas. Yesterday afternoon she walked into a little cafe and came face to face with John Prine as he was walking out. He was alone so she asked him if he'd take a pic with her and he obliged. She said he was very pleasant. I lived in Nashville for a few years and he was one of the guys I hoped to bump into but it never happened.
Seeing him alone in a rural town in the mountains of northern Arkansas is a way cooler story anyway.

Unless that friend was on the Guitartown email list, I’m gonna assume this is fake news.
