Subject: RE: Let's talk John Prine
Hi, HiLo-

Nobody, but nobody does "Dear Abby" as effectively as John Prine does. And "In Spite of Ourselves" with Prine and Iris Dement, is just perfect.

You're certainly right about Raitt on "Angel from Montgomery" and Bette Midler on "Hello in There." But on the funny songs, Prine is prime.
