Now for something completely different: Prime John Prine

I found this in my email inbox this week, and it was too good not to share:

John Prine TV!?!?

“What is John Prine TV?”

JP TV is a video player that hosts a collection of our favorite videos of John and some of his musical cronies. There is a ton of classic Prine footage on it, and as we find more videos, we’ll be adding them.

“What exactly will I find there?”

On it you’ll find clips of John duetting with Iris Dement and Nanci Griffith, doing “Angel From Montgomery” on the edge of a placid lake (“Lake Marie” maybe?), or sitting around a kitchen table just playin’ for some friends, and a whole lot more. Whether it’s John in front of ten friends or in front of 10,000 strangers, you will find John in some of the intimate settings as well as some of the most grand.  

I have failed in my efforts to embed the video, but this link will take you to a collection of 20 John Prine videos, which just keep playing one after another.

Do yourself a favor and Give it a click.

    As Kris Kristofferson said,

    If God’s got a favorite songwriter, I think it’s John Prine
