John Prine: The Troubadour, Los Angeles CA
Lester Bangs, Phonograph Record, January 1972
EVERYBODY'D BEEN talking about this guy Prine, how he was Kris Kristofferson's boozin' buddy or something, and since I like Kristofferson's Kerouacian American romanticism I decided to go down to check the dude out and scarf up some free vittles and gin.
It was a bust on all counts.
