    I think John is one of the finest lyricists ever...sorta like Towns Van Zandt but with a sense of humor. Kristofferson and Croce's got nothing on him.

    I heard of him first through the " Lost dogs and mixed blessings" album. "Ain't hurtin nobody" and "Same thing happened to me" are still great songs. Bought me a couple of albums. Good stuff.

    "Hello in There" is one of those tunes that just tugs on the old heartstrings. I play that one sometimes and it makes my wife get all choked up.

    It takes a special kind of songwriter that can both crack you up or make you cry at the same show

    God yes.
    John Prine.
    Some mighty solid finger pickin' for a 2-finger style... great song writing, great feel, and delivery, and a natural ability to play with other musicians.
    And showcased some great players on stage and on his recordings.
    I'll probably always love his first three LPs the most-- Dave Bromberg, Steve Goodman, Dave Prine, Leo LeBlanc, Grady Martin....
    Amazing stuff there, on so many levels.
    I got a lotta love for the Sound of Loneliness....
