John Prine: Sweet Revenge (Atlantic)

Tom Nolan, Rolling Stone, 31 January 1974

SWEET REVENGE is another side of John Prine, a departure from the nearly unrelenting somberness of his earlier work, and an engaging picture of the social being beneath the social conscience. It's a more human work, more mature, and a step forward artistically and toward a wider audience.
