John Prine

Signed to Atlantic with the help of Kris Kristofferson, 25-year-old John Prine released his country-tinged eponymous debut LP in 1971, just as the Vietnam War was peaking.

Prine got stuck with the label “the next Dylan” early on in his career – a label which fitted him uneasily, but at the same time a testament to his immense talent.
