    John Prine's imaginatively titled second live album shows that the years have not diminished the performing or compositional abilities of this seminal singer-songwriter. LIVE ON TOUR covers the span of his 25-year recording career, from early classics like the pot-smoker's anthem, "Illegal Smile," and the Dylanesque "The Late John Garfield Blues" to '90s material like the wry "Quit Hollerin' At Me."
    Backed by a crack band, Prine essays the kind of easy-going charm that has made his blend of country, folk, and rock come across so well for so long. Prine has the gift of simplicity, coupled with the ability to turn a phrase like nobody's business. This combination makes his heartfelt, often humorous songs powerful without being overbearing.

  • Critic Reviews
    NME (Magazine) (5/31/97, p.56) - "...Bittersweet and bruised, bleakly comic but stoic in the face of endless everyday calamity, LIVE ON TOUR is a testament to both Prine's impassioned performances and continuing resilience."
