Editorial Reviews

John Prine "In Person & On Stage" is a collection of 14 songs that Prine's fan base would select themselves if they could have a collective voice. Featuring special collaborations with Emmylou Harris, Josh Ritter, Sara Watkins, Iris Dement and Kane Welch Kaplin, it's a snapshot of the best moments from Prine's recent tours. Clocking in at just over 72 minutes and featuring songs that span his career from his eponymous debut album to his 2005 Grammy Award winning "Fair and Square," this album captures the essence of what Prine fans crave from a live performance.

Customer Reviews

I love the stories he tells before the songs in that special way that only John can.
Maddy T
If you can't get to a show of his, buy this album even if you own most of the songs, then compare the live versions to the studio cuts.
R. Dalton
I saw John in concert in Providence, RI, in 2009, - one of the best concerts I've attending in many years.

I've been listening to John since I was a little girl and have seen him live over a dozen times. There's something so special about seeing and hearing him live, and his live albums capture that feeling perfectly. I love the stories he tells before the songs in that special way that only John can. This may not be the most detailed or eloquent review, and I'm not in any position to flex my music industry knowledge, but I am a faithful fan and can say that anyone who loves John will love this album.

In Person & On Stage is the new live album from singer song-writer John Prine. John has had live albums before. I don't own either the 1988 "John Prine Live" or the 1997 "Live On Tour" albums. I don't know if he is always this conversational when performing live. I, for one, am grateful. I find it fascinating to listen to the thought-process of a song-writer and discover the simple everyday events that are sometimes the foundation of really great songs.

John's music is a mix of folk and country, with wide ranging flashes of many genres including bluegrass, blues and rock. This live performance leans strongly in the country direction both in terms of performance and song selection. His voice sounds great, especially considering he's not more than a few years removed from radiation therapy and recovery.

THE MISSING SONGS

John Prine has written a boat-load of songs. It's interesting that he chose not to include some of his better known songs here. Namely "Hello In There," which was covered by both Bette Midler and Joan Baez, and "Far From Me," which Prine has called his favorite of all his songs. Missing also is "The Twentieth Century Is Almost Over," which was recorded by The Highwaymen. Most surprising perhaps is the omission of "Sam Stone," the famous tale of a Vietnam veteran that was his breakout song. Perhaps the reason for the omission is the generally upbeat nature of this show, but I for one wish we could have had all those songs included here.

I attended both concerts John Prine performed recently at Proviso East High School in Maywood, Ill. John graduated in 1965 and returned home for benefit performances to raise money for the Maywood Fine Arts Association. a non-profit offering instruction in music, dance, gymnastics and drama for children. The dance studios were destroyed in a fire and proceeds from the Prine shows will help them rebuild.

John Prine clearly enjoyed his homecoming and was welcomed to the stage by the high school cheerleading squad. He told stories and sang his songs for more than 4 hours. Both evening's performances were taped and recorded for a future release. I can't wait!

The music critic for the Chicago Sun-Times raved about the Prine concerts in Maywood and called the Thursday evening concert one of the most memorable shows he had seen in 30 years. I'm know the audience agreed. There were too many moments to list but keep a look out for the DVD release of the shows.

Seeing John Prine in-person has always been a treat for fans. This latest disc shows he's still on top of his game! Highly recommended!

I saw John in concert in Providence, RI, in 2009, - one of the best concerts I've attending in many years. His newest CD collection is a terrific success. It's John at his creative best; thoughtfull lyrics sung with real conviction. Even though it's a recording of a live concert, he sounds like he's sitting next to me in an exclusive performance (as stated in the CD title, "In Person..."). His guests add a nice touch and his backup band is second to none. Hey John -- many thanks again from a happy fan.

This wonderful collection of performances steeped from various stops of a recent tour presents Prine at his personal, profound and fun-loving best. There are wonderful stories in (and in-between) these songs and by the end of the disc's final offering, "Paradise," you may just feel as if you've arrived there! With vocal help from the likes of Emmylou Harris and Iris DeMent, John Prine has provided us a souvenir and gift to enjoy again and again. Thank you, John Prine!

In Person & On Stage is a curious patchwork of live recordings that is sure to please the Prine faithful. Indeed, we could endlessly debate the merits of the song choices: Why "Paradise" and not "Far From Me"? "Lake Marie" would sure be nice, as would "Dear Abby." "Mexican Home" is always welcome. "Saddle in the Rain" ... thank you.

But this is not a greatest hits album and I don't think it was intended to be. It's a solid release from a lawn-chair philosopher who has a knack for seeing things we all see but don't know how to put into words. As Prine fans know, he has the ability to make you chuckle and your eyes well up all in the same song. Few artists can achieve this. But John Prine is more than just lyrics. His between-songs banter is cherished as much as the tunes themselves. On that, the album delivers, although John's storytelling voice sounds aged and gruff. Instrumentally, the music is seasoned and pleasant, and John's singing voice belies his age.

On several of the songs, John is backed up by the likes of Iris Dement, Emmylou Harris and others. I, myself, think the accompanying vocals at times sound a little whiny. But, you can be the judge on that.

If you're new to John Prine, don't start here. Get his first album (the one where he's sitting on hay bales) and Sweet Revenge, then John Prine Live (1988).

As for the rest of us, we'll keep following you, John, no matter how humble the distance.
