JOHN PRINE & MAC WISEMAN 'Standard Songs For Average People'

JOHN PRINE & MAC WISEMAN 'Standard Songs For Average People'

  • $13.50


Despite a whole raft of supporting musicians, Prine & Wiseman sound very relaxed and laid back as they alternate verses on 14 songs from different sources, mainly pop (OLD CAPE COD, WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT), gospel (IN THE GARDEN, OLD RUGGED CROSS) and country (BLUE EYED ELAINE , PISTOL PACKIN MAMA, I LOVE YOU BECAUSE, SAGINAW MICHIGAN). Personally, I think the background voices of the Carol Lee Singers (present on 7 of the tracks) detract from the proceedings, but other than that it’s a pleasant project
