John Prine - Aimless Love
Fittingly for a former mailman, John Prine delivered songs that are both literate and personal. The skilled and compassionate storyteller enjoyed widespread critical acclaim in the wake of his groundbreaking eponymous debut and continued to write and perform songs that became central to our American musical heritage for nearly five decades. Among the English language's premier phrase-turners with music relevant to any age, Prine's 1984 release Aimless Love is available on vinyl from Oh Boy Records for the first time since the original pressings. The spare country-folk affair marked Prine's first release on his own label Oh Boy and is anchored by the heartfelt standouts "Bottomless Lake," "Oldest Baby," "Somewhere" and "Unwed Fathers." Noted fan Bob Dylan even covered "People Puttin' People Down" in concert.
