The Tree of Forgiveness is John Prine's new album. He hasn't released an album of new material in 13 years and it's outstanding! I'll play the whole thing tonight on the John Prine Edition of the Heart and Soul Radio Program from 6-9 PM PST on Blue Mountain Radio- KQBM 90.7 and 103.7 FM or stream from www.kqbm.org. He's one of the greatest songwriters and storytellers of our lifetime. Bob Dylan says ""Prine's stuff is pure Proustian existentialism. Midwestern mindtrips to the nth degree. And he writes beautiful songs. I remember when Kris Kristofferson first brought him on the scene. All that stuff about Sam Stone the soldier junky daddy and Donald and Lydia, where people make love from ten miles away. Nobody but Prine could write like that." Tune in for three hours of Prine, some of his influences and some he's left his mark on.
