Come noto John Prine è morto all'inizio di quest'anno a causa di complicazioni dovute al coronavirus, e ora, un nuovo cofanetto arriva a celebrare i suoi primi anni. Crooked Piece of Time: The Atlantic & Asylum Albums (1971-1980) presenta le versioni rimasterizzate in CD dei suoi primi sette album e sarà disponibile il 23 ottobre grazie alla Rhino Records.

La collezione mette in mostra tutte le qualità che hanno reso Prine così amato. Contiene tutto, dai suoi successi più noti come il classico Angel from Montgomery, a bozzetti comici come Dear Abbey, fino a riflessioni filosofiche come Fish and Whistle.

Crooked Piece of Time prende il nome da uno dei momenti salienti di Bruised Orange (1978). Il box comprende John Prine (1971), Diamonds in the Rough (1972), Sweet Revenge (1973), Common Sense (1975), Pink Cadillac (1979), e Storm Windows (1980).

Ogni CD viene fornito con una copia di una mini-LP sleeve, oltre ad un booklet di 20 pagine con le nuove note di copertina di David Fricke. La copertina è un dipinto di Joshua Petker, a sua volta basato su una foto di Prine di Jim Shea.
