Notes:

One of the best-sounding John Prine recodings I have, this show might be one of the most star-studded John Prine shows ever. Margo Price, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, My Morning Jacket’s Yim Yames and The Night Sweats’s Nathaniel Rateliff each guested on one song, and (ex) Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters even brought his back vocalists from indie band Lucius for the song “Hello in There”. You can find tons of reviews of this concert online, as well as fan-shot videos on YouTube. John Prine inspired and influenced a lot of today’s best songwriters and this show proves that. As someone puts, “John Prine might not be your favorite songwriter, but he probably is one of your favorite songwriters’ favorite songwriter.”

All guest artists featured on this show paid tribute to John when he passed away – Margo Price and Nathaniel Rateliff performed on NPR’s Tiny Desk John Prine Tribute Concert, Jim James posted a John Prine cover on Instagram, Roger Waters recorded a video sharing his thoughts, and Justin Vernon wrote on his Twitter: “A simple majority of who I am as a person, let alone a musician, is because of John Prine. He is my number 1.”
