John Prine, who passed away in April, was one of the most celebrated singer/songwriters of his generation and recipient of the 2020 Grammy® Lifetime Achievement Award. Considered a true folk-singer, Prine was known for his raspy voice and equally admired for his unique songwriting ability. Rolling Stone once dubbed him “The Mark Twain of American songwriting.” His career spanned over five decades, during which he created witty and sincere country-folk music, that drew from his Midwestern American roots and incorporated sounds from rockabilly, R&B and rock n roll.

The seven-CD set includes the following albums presented in mini-LP replica sleeves and newly-remastered: John Prine (1971), Diamonds In The Rough (1972), Sweet Revenge (1973), Common Sense (1975), Bruised Orange (1978), Pink Cadillac (1979) and Storm Windows (1980). The clamshell box also contains poster inserts and a 20-page booklet with new liner notes written by acclaimed music journalist David Fricke. The cover art, commissioned especially for the set, is a painting by artist Joshua Petker that's based on a photo of Prine taken by Jim Shea.

Crooked Piece Of Time - which takes its name from a song on Bruised Orange - represents an essential and timeless American songbook and includes tracks that have become modern-day folk and country standards like: Hello In There, Sam Stone, Illegal Smile, Angel From Montgomery, Paradise and That's The Way The World Goes Round. The expansive collection also contains favourites like: Far From Me, Dear Abby, Christmas In Prison, Fish and Whistle and Automobile.

In addition to earning the Lifetime Achievement Award this year, Prine also won Grammy® Awards for The Missing Years (1991) and Fair and Square (2005). His songs have been recorded by a long list of well-respected artists, including Joan Baez, Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, George Strait, Norah Jones, John Denver, Miranda Lambert, The Everly Brothers, Bette Midler, Paul Westerberg, Tammy Wynette and Dwight Yoakam.
