John Prine's collection of duets is what would be described surely as an 'eclectic mix'. On In Spite Of Ourselves sees Prine dive in to a range of loving country tunes with a stellar lineup of stars.
While John Prine can never boast the sweetest of tenors, his ragged voice carries him through this incredible collection of songs in the company of the likes of Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless and inevitably, Iris DeMent.
As with all of John Prine's recordings, there are no fillers, and every song is approached with sentiment and pathos in equal measures. In Spite Of Ourselves works on the chemistry of the performers, which
is here in abundence.
