Chris in Wheaton John Prine & Library of Congress (27) RE: John Prine & Library of Congress 12 Apr 05

I watched ther first half of the Prine video last night - really a wonderful interview. John did a great job of playing Souvenirs - my favority song of his to play. I wish I had a way to copy the video. They took a great close-up picture of how he plays the song. I have been leaving out some of the bass runs.
And who knew that "illegal smile" referred to his dream-states where he got in contact with his Muse? Or was he smoking the good stuff all along?
Also, I recorded this week's Folkscene and they played the new song Humans from the new cd - IMHO, it is a tad on the side of bitter, which he says in the video he tries to avoid by taking his time in writing personal songs, but still a very funny song. Maybe he should have waited some more time before commenting in song on the War. But I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. He has been a breath of fresh air in my life. I haven't been able to listend to Andrew Calhoun's negative Prine song after the second listening.
