Back On Vinyl LP For First Time Since 1972!
All-Analog Cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio! Pressed at RTI!
Includes The Non-Hit "The Late John Garfield Blues"!


Diamonds in the Rough was recorded at Atlantic Recording Studios in New York City. The album's sound homed in on the Appalachian "high lonesome" influences evident on Prine's eponymous debut LP and its bluegrass instrumentation reflects Prine's fascination with early American folk and country music. The album was produced by Arif Mardin and features Prine's brother Dave on dobro, banjo, and fiddle while Steve Goodman also contributes on guitar and harmonies. In the Great Days: The John Prine Anthology liner notes, Prine tells David Fricke that the album was recorded in three days at a cost of $7,200, "including beer", and adds "I just wanted to do Diamonds the way I was used to playing music at my house with Dave and Steve. But it's taken me years to figure out how to balance those first two records. About every other record, after making a real studio or rock 'n' roll album, I'd come back and do a Diamonds in the Rough."

Two-time Grammy-winner, singer-songwriter John Prine is among the English language's premier phrase-turners. Forty-five years into a remarkable career that has drawn effusive praise from Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, Bonnie Raitt, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen, and others who would know, Prine is a smiling, shuffling force for good. He is a Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame member whose classic debut album, simply titled John Prine, is recognized as part of the Recording Academy's Grammy Hall of Fame.

"John Prine's second album was a cut below his first, only because the debut was a classic and the followup was merely terrific. 'Sour Grapes' showed Prine's cracked sense of humor and 'Souvenirs' his sentiment. Even if it was the second rank of his writing, Diamonds in the Rough demonstrated that Prine had an enduring talent that wasn't exhausted by one great album." - William Ruhlmann, AllMusic
