One of the best of the wave of singer-songwriters who emerged in the early 1970s, John Prine won friends and admirers with his plainspokenly evocative tales. Prine's rich album catalogue includes biting social commentaries, wryly amusing love songs, and bittersweet stories about the kind of people you know -- or are. Souvenirs collects 15 of Prine's finest songs - including such Prine standards as "Sam Stone," "Donald and Lydia," "Christmas in Prison" and "Please Don't Bury Me" -- in brand-new versions, with an emphasis on material from the artist's early LPs. The resulting album is something like a longtime fan's dream set list, and the warmth and intimacy of the performances (on which Prine is accompanied by longtime cohorts Jason Wilber, Dave Jacques, and Phil Parlapiano) enhance the live feeling. When Prine wrote "Angel from Montgomery" and "Hello in There," stories about the loneliness and lost dreams of old people, he was a young man. Now he's a cancer survivor, a new dad, and a witness to a lot of time gone by, and Prine's well-traveled voice conveys the songs' resonant insights with an immediacy rooted in experience.
