Cut From The Original Analog Master by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio

Two-time Grammy-winner, singer-songwriter John Prine is among the English language's premier phrase-turners. Forty-five years into a remarkable career that has drawn effusive praise from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and others who would know, Prine is a smiling, shuffling force for good. He is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member whose classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized as part of the Recording Academy's Grammy Hall of Fame.

"Prine wrote 'Sweet Revenge' and the album of the same name as a bit of sonic retribution. His label wasn't happy with the commercial reception to his second LP, so he dropped a veritable masterpiece to set them straight and silence them once and for all." - The Bluegrass Situation

"Prine's third album is louder and more jaded than his first efforts, a set of rowdy country-rockers that tear along at a reckless speed. Sympathy takes a back seat to cynicism here, and while that strips the record of some depth, Prine's irreverence is consistently thrilling, making this one of his best. It's not as uniformly brilliant as the debut, but it did steer his music in a new direction -- where that record is often hallmarked for its rich sensitivity, Sweet Revenge established cynicism as Prine's dominant voice once and for all. Although he could still crank out a great ballad when he felt like it, from now on his records largely followed a more conventional rock & roll muse, a choice that eventually gained him more mainstream attention. 'Please Don't Bury Me,' 'Christmas in Prison,' 'Blue Umbrella,' and 'A Good Time' are a few of the jewels on this one." - Jim Smith, AllMusic
