Broken Hearts & Dirty Windows: Songs of John Prine (2010) is one of those tribute albums that appeals to me on two levels: the artist being covered and the tribute artists. I had a friend who was trying to get me into John Prine, but this works much better since there are several artists who I like and several that I am curious about, and that adds to the appeal of an album like this. First the artists I already like all come through with worthwhile versions: The Avett Brothers "Spanish Pipedream," My Morning Jacket "All The Best," Justine Vernon (Bon Iver) "Bruised Orange (Chain of Sorrow)," Conor Oberst and the Hidden Valley Band, and "Daddy's Little Pumpkin" by Driveby Truckers. The best of the bands unfamiliar to me were: Lambchop "Six O'Clock News," Old Crow Medicine Show "Angel From Montgomery," and Deer Tick (with Liz Isenberg) "Unwed Fathers." But I don't think there's a weak song on the album with tracks from other like: Josh Ritter, Justin Townes Earl, Sara Watkins, and Those Darlins. So this album inspires me to seek out more by contributors and the artist in which they are paying tribute, because Prine is clearly a gifted songwriter.
