|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
John Prine takes his own sweet time dancing with his muse and truly writes what's in his soul. So if it takes him a little longer to write the songs that capture moments and reveal the gently folded human truths that bind people all together, it's always worth the wait.
During John Prine's nine-year interval between albums of original material, fans who hailed his recovery from cancer wondered whether he'd ever return to full creative speed. Here, on Fair & Square, Prine puts doubts to rest with an album that ranks with the finest of an inspired career. At the 48th Grammy Awards, Fair & Square won the Grammy Award for 'Best Contemporary Folk Album'.
Highlights include the big heart of "Glory of True Love", the socially conscious bite of "Some Humans Ain't Human", the reflective grace of "Taking a Walk", and the the wry whimsy of "Crazy as a Loon". The album also reflects Prine's first attempt at producing himself, with the warmth of his rough-hewn vocals finding a comfortable fit among the organic, largely acoustic arrangements.
