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 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. There are loud guitar solos, funky organ playing, and a couple of unreleased covers that will really surprise some folks.

A two-time Grammy-winner, John Prine is among the English language's premier phrase-turners, drawing praise from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and others. A 2019 Rock & Songwriter's Hall of Fame inductee, a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member and a PEN New England Lyrics Award-winner, John Prine is widely cited as one of the most influential songwriters of his generation, known for humorous lyrics about love, life and current events, as well as serious songs with social commentary, or which recollect melancholy tales from his life. He received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2020.
