John Prine & "September 78" LP

In the fall of 1978, singer-songwriter John Prine returned home to Chicago for a concert appearance at the famed Park West club. The show, captured on the limited edition album September 78, features John backed by his rock n’ roll band, ably led by longtime friend Johnny Burns.

Angelo Varias played drums, alongside bassist Tommy ‘Pickles’ Piekarski, while Howard Levy joined on organ, piano and harmonica. Johnny Burns and his signature guitar licks locked the whole thing together.

Prine’s Oh Boy Records is pressing just 2000 individually-numbered LPs of September 78. It will be initially released for Record Store Day on April 18, 2015. The album also features two cover tracks - "Try To Find Another Man," made famous by The Righteous Brothers, as well as "Treat Me Nice," originally sung by Elvis Presley.

September 78 will be released on 180 gram, 12-inch, orange vinyl. Each LP also comes with a digital download of the record's ten tracks.

John Prine hopes that his fans will enjoy this performance from a special period of time in his career.
