Synopsis

Amazon.com
"I've been thinking lately 'bout the people I meet," sings Prine at the beginning of "Fish and Whistle." Yes, we all think about those people, but only Prine can relay their (or his own) heartbreaking stories in such a heartwarming fashion. The bulk of this cozy record was recorded at an intimate solo-acoustic show at the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, California, and is augmented by a pair of full-band cuts recorded at Nashville's Cannery plus one duet each with Bonnie Raitt and Steve Goodman. Even longtime Prine collectors will relish these pared-down tender readings for the snug setting calls even more attention to Prine's uncanny eye for detail, his acute empathy for human suffering, and ultimately, his ability to find humor where most only find misery. And try not to crack an "Illegal Smile" when the whole crowd sings along with him. --Marc Greilsamer

"I first heard John Prine one hot August afternoon driving home from work. I had a horrible day at the office and traffic was a mess. Scanning the radio, I heard 'Hello in There' - the final track on this album and it just stopped me in my tracks. I immediately bought this album and loved every song. Ten years later, I still haven't grown tired of it. As a Gen Xer, I recommend that younger people listen to John. I just saw him in concert last week at the Berkely Music School in Boston and he's incredibly dynamic in concert. Thanks for the music, John."

"my girlfriend hates this one, maybe i should get rid of her. me i love the thing. the stories this guy can tell. reminds me of a saturday night when the suds were flowing and your best friend was telling all the wacky stories he had lived or had the nerve to make up. This record sounds like a few friends just hanging out and talking about old times and whats happened since last seeing each other. it's all so intimate and close, you forget he's playing to a few thousand people. i am sure everyone in the audience thought the songs were performed for them and isn't that the whole point of a live album."

"I keep this CD in my car and crank it up like a kid, re-upping my favorite cuts a couple of times each trip.There are wonderful renditions of these classic Prine songs; but the duet with the late Steve Goodman on "Souvenirs" out shines them all, with such intricate, exuberant guitar work it's hard to believe. Check it out.I only wish he'd added his take on Goodman's "My Old Man," which I have a hard time getting through without choking up (give "Tribute to Steve Goodman," a try; it's available through Amazon)."
