A new John Prine box set has been announced. The 7xCD release Crooked Piece of Time, out October 23 via Rhino, will gather the late singer-songwriter’s first seven albums, beginning with his 1971 self-title debut and ending with 1980’s Storm Windows, according to Rolling Stone. The boxset, named after a song from 1978’s Bruised Orange, covers Prine’s entire output for Atlantic and Asylum Records. After the release of these albums, he would go on to form Oh Boy Records.
