The late great Phil Sinclair used to play this album all the time in his record shop in Portrush, and it was the first time I’d ever heard John Prine. I had no idea at the time that he had a solid back catalogue studded with amazing songs. This one just leapt out at me, and every now and then I put it on and think of old Phil. There are some masterpieces on here – 'Everybody Wants to Feel Like You', 'You Got Gold' and my favourite, the weird and wonderful 'The Sins of Memphisto'. The Sins of Memphisto was the audio template I had in mind when I went into the studio with 'Sailortown'. It may not be everyone’s favourite John Prine album, but it’s the one I come back to most often. In fact, I’m going to go and put it on right now.
