  • In the Midwest in the Fifties they had like carnivals. In most carnivals they had this guy called a geek. You know what a geek is?
    A geek is a man who in a side show would eat a live chicken. Bites the head off and eats the rest of it, live. Sweeps the feathers up with a broom. (….)
    anyway the most people who saw him, you know, they’d insult him. Things like that. He didn’t seem to mind though.
    Anyway I was having breakfast one day with the bearded lady and she said that he said that he used to look at other people who paid a quarter to see him as being kind of freaky.
    (….) (before Ballad Of A Thin Man)
  • I was traveling on to Mexico on this train from Durango to San Diego. An about the time we got to Monterey, this woman with a big family, about 15 children.
    They got off this train. But this man with a blanket got on. I saw him in the window as he sat down. (….) I turned, and both his eyes were on fire and there was smoke
    coming out of his nostrils. I know this was the man I wanted to talk to. (before SeÒor (Tales Of Yankee Power))
  • Thank you. I went to the South of France on my birthday. Where they have a gypsy holiday (….) anyway I was (….) I met the king of the gypsies over there.
    A young man with 16 wives and 120 children. And he took me under his wing and let me party with him for a week, As it was my birthday and I’d took my (….).
    It came time to go and he said to me “What would you like?” Well I’d done everything that week. Twice. So I said one more cup of coffee for the road. (….)
    And I walked on down the road.
  • I wanna dedicate this to the first girl I loved. Lives up in the north country. (before Girl From The North Country)
  • Thank you ladies and gentlemen, on the drums tonight, give him a warm hand, Ian Wallace. All right, on bass guitar, Jerry Scheff.
    On the keyboards, from Trinidad, the one and only Alan Pasqua. On the electric lead guitar, the oldest membr of this group, born in 1921, ladies and gentlemen, Billy Cross.
    All right, on electric violin, electric mandolin, sometimes electric lead guitar, the baby of this group, only fifteen years old, been with me now five years.
    Doesn’t smoke dope, drink whiskey or go out with women, all that’s gonna change tonight, yes it is. Ladies and gentlemen, David Mansfield!
    On the rhythm guitar, a man from South America, Bogota. He doesn’t speak any English, but he plays his heart out, doesn’t he? Ladies and gentlemen, Steven Soles.
    He gave up a career as a sports car driver to be in this band. Anyway, on the tenor saxophone, a man who is really a legend in his own time, ladies and gentlemen,
    the phenomenal Steve Douglas. On the backup vocals tonight, as every night, my favourite three ladies. On the right my ex-girlfriend. I like to eat and she doesn’t like to cook.
    Anyway, my ex-girlfriend, Jo Ann Harris. All right, in the middle, my current girlfriend Helena Springs. (….). On the other side my fiancÈe, Carolyn Dennis.
    All right, on the conga drums, from Detroit City. The most amazing Miss Bobbye Hall. We gotta get out of here pretty soon. Thanks a lot for coming.
    We’ll see you next time. (before It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding))
  • Thank you. I’m gonna leave you with this song. I wrote it for one of my babies when he was a baby. He’s not a baby an he’s not here, but I wanna play it anyway. (before Forever Young)

John Prine performed on the ACL show 8 times during his career, and this is his ACL debut. The show was broadcast in 1978, but was actually recorded on 28th August 1977 according to JPShrine.

This short set includes some of the earliest known performances of songs from “Bruised Orange” album, which was not released until a year later. It’s also the first known recording of Prine with bassist Rachel Peer, who would later become John’s wife during the 80’s and inspired the songwriter to write “All the Best” after their divorce. The band here is entirely different from the band on the album.

I have the video of the show somewhere too, but the video is a lossy-sourced mp4 file, so I decided to only share the audio of the show. I don’t think this copy of the show has ever been circulated before. There is some tape hiss throughout the show, but it’s nonetheless a good-sounding recording.

For setlists from this show and a bunch of other John Prine shows, please visit my John Prine setlist page at The setlists of all John Prine live recordings I know will all be posted there, along with a 90-second sample for each recording.
