John Prine On Mountain Stage
Loading the player ...John Prine
made his third appearance on Mountain Stage
on April 27, 1997. When this episode originally aired, Prine's 10-song set was cut short to fit the radio broadcast, so nearly half of this performance is being heard here for the first time.
Prine was touring in support of his now-famous Live on Tour
album, drawn from a series of shows in the mid-'90s. As such, his set features material from different periods in his career. Prine plays songs from Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings
as well as from The Missing Years
, including "Picture Show" and "Lake Marie." He closes his set with an encore performance of "Paradise," from his first album. In a rare Mountain Stage
twist, Prine is joined on stage by power-pop pioneer Alex Chilton
, who'd appeared earlier in the very same show.
