Roger Bowie's Tribute to John Prine

Pure Prine

Roger Bowie

I’m suspending the normal Eclectic Journey to bring you a special tribute to the late, great John Prine, who passed away on April 7th. It’s called Pure Prine and features songs from all his studio albums from 1971 thru until 2018 (except for A John Prine Christmas, and compilations). 29 songs which reflect the man’s universal appeal, his humility, his humanity and his humour. Starts off with He Was in Heaven Before He Diedand finishes with When I Get To HeavenTwo songs which embody his sense of joy about life and serve equally as epitaphs. Also the song about the “happy enchilada”, and all the greatest hits. Enjoy!!
