The Beatles White Album, Jerry Jeff Walker's "Too Old To Change," Tom Waits and Bob Dylan -- mix these together and you have John Prine's "Pink Cadillac." It isn't country, it likes the Rolling Stones and Muddy Waters, it is dense and pleasing and you don't have to like country music or rock to appreciate it -- it sighs and flows and kicks and lives in its own space. I like "Common Sense" the best of Prine's other CD's, but I also love Merle Haggard and The Clash. This CD is brilliant, and the song "Siagon" will take you elsewhere if you let it, and if you are armed. Genius.

John Prine's best album, no doubt. Recorded in the land of The King with Knox, Jerry, and yes, Mr. Sam Phillips. You want to hear the genius of Sam Phillips? Listen to "Saigon", a draaaaaged out track that stopped even Alex Chilton in his tracks. This is pure rockabilly music, the real thing. The Prine fans that hate this album, I dunno, maybe they wanted him to keep singing "Illegal Smile". John has said that this is his favorite album--listen to it with an open mind and you'll see why. "Down By The Side Of The Road" may be Prine's finest moment, and the covers, oh man, from Roly Salleys "Killing The Blues" to a dead on version of "This Cold War With You", this is one of the purest records you'll hear. Brilliant all the way around. One of the best records I own. I hope you'll think so, too.

This album may be a bit of a shock to those listeners who are only familiar with the early, folkier songs of John Prine. On this album, however, he was letting his hair down, stretching out, getting loose, rockin' out and getting down. And doing it loudly. A bit of rockabilly, some bluesy rockers, all played with verve and passion ... but no acoustic ballads. So yeah, this CD may not be the favorite of Prine fans reared on his early records, but it's still well played and I enjoyed it very much. That said, I wouldn't rank it as my favorite John Prine album, nor would I recommend it to anyone who hasn't heard any other albums by this extremely gifted singer-songwriter. But if you ARE a Prine fan, and liked albums such as the magnificent "Bruised Orange," which came out around the same time, you might dig this one too. In my mind, it's all "Prime Prine."

Pink Cadillac sounds like Prine got together a few buddies and a bunch of beer and recorded an album meant to be played loud. For fans looking to expand on their collections, this is a great album to show how serious Prine was about not being pidgeon-holed in one type of music. On the downside, because the recording is of a lower quality and the mixing favors the guitars and drums over the words, listeners have to dig a little deeper to find those tear-jerk gems and nuggets of wit and wisdom. He can still break your heart (how Lucky) and crack you up (the irreverent Chinatown) but most of these tracks are meant to be just plain fun. For those who are looking to round out their collection, this album is about as raw as Prine's music gets. For those who are just starting out, I'd suggest getting some of his earlier albums, or the grammy winning Missing Years, first.
