Album of the Day
Crooked Piece of Time
John Prine, who passed away in April, was one of the most celebrated singer-songwriters of his generation and recipient of the 2020 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. Known for his raspy voice and equally admired for his unique songwriting ability, Prine spent nearly five decades creating witty and sincere country-folk music that drew from his Midwestern American roots and incorporated sounds from rockabilly, R&B and rock 'n' roll. Rhino remembers the man that Rolling Stone once called “The Mark Twain of American songwriting” with CROOKED PIECE OF TIME: THE ATLANTIC & ASYLUM ALBUMS (1971-1980). Just released, the newly remastered seven-CD boxed set includes the first seven studio albums of his career in mini-LP replica sleeves along with poster inserts and a 20-page booklet with liner notes by acclaimed music writer David Fricke.
