A new John Prine box set, Crooked Piece of Time, is set to arrive on October 23rd.
The 7xCD release will celebrate the late singer-songwriters first seven albums — John Prine (1971), Diamonds in the Rough (1972), Sweet Revenge (1973), Common Sense (1975), Bruised Orange (1978), Pink Cadillac (1979), and Storm Windows (1980).
Each CD will arrive with a replica mini-LP sleeve. A 20-page booklet filled with new liner notes by David Frick will also accompany the release.
The cover of the box set is a painting by Joshua Petker, based on a photo Jim Shea took of Prine.
On June 11th, a live-streamed tribute event celebrating the life and legacy of Prine took place. Picture Show: A Tribute Celebrating John Prine saw a star-studded roster of artists like Sturgill Simpson, Kacey Musgraves, Jason Isbell, and more celebrate the legacy of the beloved country icon.
The family of Prine shared the songwriters final song ‘I Remember Everything’ back in June. Listen to it below.
