John Prine
The 5th Peg, WFMT Archives, Chicago, IL. 1970






































According to the notes that came with the disc, "This is the oldest surviving John Prine recording. This show was recorded sometime in August 1970. Recording originally sourced from KGNU-FM in Lincoln, NE, labeled 'John Prine Live at the 5th Peg 1970 WFMT Archives'. WFMT in Chicago has no record of this in their library, but they say 'hey that was 34 years ago, so who knows'."

The song, Sam Stone, was banned in $ingapore for a long time. The authorities were concerned it would encourage drug taking.

Thanks to scdegraaf for sharing the tracks.

Tracks 1-11 are studio takes.

Click on the highlighted tracks to download the MP3s (these are high quality, stereo MP3s - sample rate of 192 kibit/s). As far as we can ascertain, these tracks have never been officially released.

Note: We have been requested by Oh Boy Records, home of John Prine albums, to stop offering the John Prine tracks.

I got the files from

It's an excellent set, short but it shows much of what Prine would become.

I saw this John Prine post this morning at work and couldn't wait to get home and hear it. He is one of my favorites.
Alas, when I got home from the job, it was gone. I feel like I've fallen into Prine's bottomless lake.
I'll get over it, but suddenly, I hate my day job.
Thanks again DOC. Sorry I wasn't there for the delivery.
