Mr. Prine deserves his own thread. Appreciate one of the greatest artists of all time. RIP.
With most artists after their death I have a hard time listening to their music bc it just makes me too sad. With John Prine it’s been the exact opposite, his music has always had a special way of soothing the soul and that’s been true now more than ever for me.
I also find it comforting that the two songs below are two of the last songs he did. One being the final track on his final album. The other being the final song he sang on prior to his passing. They both seem very fitting, and both are very Prine.

John Prine’s “I Remember Everything” Debuts At No. 1
Listened to Sweet Revenge for the first time after he passed and got very excited at the lifetime of listening to his stuff I have in front of me.
Great album, one of his best for sure.
After the s/t and Sweet Revenge, what would you put at the top of the heap for him?
Bruised Orange. Absolutely no question. The title track is my favorite song of his.
edit: then go with Diamonds In The Rough
It's based from a true story. One he explains at the beginning of this video:
I think I agree with Bruised Orange next, but for me it would probably be The Missing Years after that, though Diamonds in the Rough is right there as well.
This man had so much wisdom.
This was one of his last collaborations, and it absolutely crushes me every time.
Another Broken Hearts and Dirty Windows album coming soon. Looking forward to it, first one is great.
Lost John a year ago today :(
Having a vodka & ginger ale as soon as I get off work, RIP legend
Does anyone have any recs for 'must watch' JP vids? Like great quality full shows, interesting interviews, etc. I love the House of Strombo one but just watched that last week.
EDIT: Think I'm going to start with this since I've never seen it:
