4.0 out of 5 stars Great voices - lots of fun 26 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A friend of mine played this for me and I loved it. Great country songs, many with a touch of humour, and the singing is brilliant. The variety of the female voices adds to the enjoyment and as a newcomer to John Prine (and indeed many of the women he duets with) I was very impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prine Time 8 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is easy listening John Prine at his most sweet - songs to make you smile. Some of these old school classics, while all worthwhile in their own right, might not be as affecting as the best of Prine's own work, but that is not the point. Prine brings his own gentle, completely unpretentious style to the songs and this collection is full of his characteristic warmth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not his best work 21 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With an impressive line up of artistes and John Prine's strong, witty performances I expected far more from this album which I chose to buy because I always liked In Spite of Ourselves. It is pretty dull stuff to my ears....Download this one track and go to one of his other albums would be my recommendation

2.0 out of 5 stars Far From His Best 28 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Got this recording close to its release date, played it a half dozen times thinking it would be a grower, and haven't played it since. I am a fan of John Prines work, but as far as this offering is concerned, I am only glad that I was aware of how good he is before listening to this. If you are looking for a fair introduction to the talent that is John Prine, then ignore 'In Spite Of Ourselves' as it will leave the wrong impression entirely. It is not that it is bad, it is simply just not representative of a superb talent, but then I suppose every great artist is entitled to a momentary lapse in reason. Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, Neil Young and even Bob Dylan have all been there, so JP is in good company at least.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Keeper For Sure! 21 Nov 1999
By Vincent E. Vizachero - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a John Prine fan for years, and never considered not buying this CD.
After my first couple play-throughs, I still wasn't sure what to think: this wasn't exactly the John Prine I'd been listening to for years. His voice is certainly a little rough around the edges. And this IS a cover album (but is worth the price for the title track alone), which isn't the normal John Prine speed.
Then I realized that I never really like Prine for his voice, rather for his heart and his wit. And both are here in spades on this album. This is a GREAT collection of songs, sung by a fabulous man and some truly awesome women. There is more quality lurking in this album than many other artists can muster in a lifetime. I can't think of another performer with the real American soul of John Prine, and here he shows us a side of it that many have never seen before. It is a revelation and a blessing.
Buy this CD. After hearing it, you'll never regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dazed and Amazed! 11 Mar 2000
By "kasper3" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Listening to Dolores Keane, the great voice of Ireland, doing her solos and harmonies on "Its A Cheatin' Situation" and "In A Town This Size" is like discovering that there is finally someone who can sing in the slow-motion haunting style that once was soley the property of Pasty Cline. Then along comes Iris Dement's toe-to-toe duets with John, culminating in "In Spite Of Ourselves", in which she does the impossible - she steals the show! Fiona Prine's solo in "Till a Tear Becomes A Rose" makes me daydream of having a woman sing in such a way to me. You can tell she is singing to her husband!...And then there's Lucinda Williams' solo on "Lets Turn Back The Years"! She is worth the price of admission alone! Add to this the solos and harmonies of Trisha Yearwood, Emmylou Harris, Patty Loveless, Connie Smith and Melba Montongomery and you find yourself dazed and amazed at John Prine. This CD fits like a glove and each duet, so sublte and simple, is a homage to the lonliness we have all known, the love we have all longed for, the grand "honky-tonk days" when a few chords and a couple of great voices and uncomplicated lyrics accompanied a cold beer and a few tears. Then, just when we forget its our John Prine that is taking us on this journey, "In Spite Of Ourselves" comes along....and we realize the John we thought we knew is still amongst us!...Touche, ol' buddy....thanks for opening my ears to Iris Dement, Lucinda Williams, Dolores Keane and Fiona Price. Prine singing "country" with "country's best" and an Irish lady reminiscent of Patsy Cline - I'm gonna buy another copy of this CD in case anything happens to the one I have now!...5 stars?...No, how about 9 stars and and five ! for John Prine?....

3.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Charming 28 Sep 2000
By Don Thomason - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was all set to not like this record -- John Prine is hardly the type of singer you'd think anyone could harmonize with (much less for an album of duets), and when I heard "Til A Tear Becomes A Rose" (with wife Fiona Prine) on local public radio, I first thought "clunker." Surprise -- this collection of country standards about relationships is a charmer, and most of Prine's partners -- including Emmylou Harris, Connie Smith, Patty Loveless, Trisha Yearwood, Melba Montgomery, and Lucinda Williams -- find ways to fit their voices with Prine's. Some liasons don't work, most notably with Irish singer Dolores Keane who phrases too straight to fit. Far and away, the best performances are with Iris DeMent; they click on George Jones & Melba Montgomery's "Let's Invite Them Over," the George & Tammy classic "(We're Not) The Jet Set," and the offhandly bawdy title track (the only Prine original). The recording and arrangements are stripped down to show the core of these country gems, and the results are as magnetic as a couple in love that's been together 20 years or more.

5.0 out of 5 stars More "Comfort Music" from our "National Treasure" John Prine 8 Dec 1999
By "smugly" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I discovered John Prine 25 years ago, while living in Hartsville, Tennessee. I heard Prine "wailin' away" from an open window and I knocked on the door of that house to ask who that singer/song writer might be.
Since then, I have spoken of Prine as my favorite singer/song writer ever and as one we should all consider a National Treasure.
Of course "In Spite of Ourselves" is great. It's John, is't it? Once again, he epitomizes the "Americana" we are so rapidly losing. There's only one Prine-written song on the album, and you'll know it when you get to it because you'll find yourself laughing out loud, but each song is selected to define who John is.
Buy this album. It'll cost you almost nothing and last forever and if you're a fan of the style of music Prine invented, there's no doubt that you should own it.
Keep 'em comin' John and thanks for the music buddy.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Girls They did oblige 17 July 2002
By L. Dann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is yet more proof of john Prine's gift for staggering, intoxicating impact of the sweet/rough, not quite serious country sound. He alone can enter into a Soho/w.Va low/high range that simmers as honky tonk high art. This voice that post-cancer surgery came out just right in its gruff contrast to those mighty fine females. You just know, just about any smart lady'll sing with John if he asks- dumb ones too. There's just that quality of modesty and those detours where sorrow and music don't otherwise cavort by the moonlight -and not get called names for being so sentimental- just John's magic for a story and a kick and the greatest wise cracks that he's just not held for suspicion. He's a true to your heart guy. This album is so much fun and in its complete lack of message-political intent and /or attempting to mark a newer and improved John, suits me just fine. Iris Dement is a meteor shower just phenomenal in a voice of light particles and Lucinda Williams sounded like a full-forced virtuoso. The music is hilarious, especially, We're not the Jet Set- and the one about Milwaukee. As they say, it's all good. When I listen it's as if he he never left places those southern places I've never been to, only that's where we are and it's home. -
