This book is but a snapshot of this man's life, reproducing self-chosen songs along with lyrics, guitar chords, over 100 personal pictures - many never before published - and some commentary from John himself.
There is a picture index at the back of the book, for those that do not know some of the people in the pictures.
You have to look up and research elsewhere, for any biographical information on John Prine (b. Oct 10, 1946), as this book does not provide that source.
His first album was released in 1971 and in 1998 he had major surgery, which removed a piece of his neck and severed a few nerves in his tongue. Took a year of recuperation and speech therapy before he could sing again.
His current tour, Tree of Forgiveness, takes him across the United States, with the closest to Vancouver, B.C., in Eugene OR (Sept 19); Portland OR (Sept 21), and Seattle WA (Sept 22, 2018).
I have seen him many times in the past and was always a fun concert, and often saw him on tour with another fine singer and buddy, Steve Goodman.
