Subject: RE: Let talk John Prine
In Spite of Ourselves. great, great song and a superb performance by two superb artistes.

"Unwed Fathers", however is indisputably, incontrovertibly and incontestably, the greatest song ever to come from the pen of J Prine, and I have them all as well.

"Speed of the Sound of Loneliness" is probably my least favourite Prine song. Too clever by half, imo, and doesn't actually say anything very meaningful. Damn catchy tune, though ...
