Nov 17, 2011Prine is extraordinary, one of the most eloquent artists of modern times and seeing where it all started, in this super CD, really is something very special.
Nov 17, 2011The Singing Mailman Delivers doesn't do much to rewrite Prine's early history, but it confirms he revealed a remarkable talent as soon as he put his mind to writing songs, and it's an entertaining addition to his catalog for longtime fans.
UncutDec 12, 2011Mailman offers an insider's glimpse into his beginnings--a spirited 1970s club set and a priceless disc of stripped-down, gloss-free demos. [Jan 2012, p.96]
Nov 17, 2011It's a fine introduction to a richly imagistic Midwestern everyguy whose languid good nature defied singer-songwriter smugness.
Dec 13, 2011A two-disc set documenting archival demos and an early live recording, The Singing Postman Delivers demonstrates that for the most part, John Prine's musical persona emerged fully formed.
Nov 17, 2011So even if takes here don't quite match up, it's fun to see them coming into form, and to see a young Prine as a performer finding himself on stage, mesmerizing us in the process.
Nov 17, 2011With a stable of effective songs and a healthy dose of good humor, The Singing Mailman Delivers remains a likable, if not terribly compelling, effort.
