Poems, Prayers and Promises 40th Anniversary Edition

We’re excited to team up with the folks at Daytrotter to bring you the 40th Anniversary Edition of Poems, Prayers & Promises. Originally released in 1971, this album introduced John Denver’s iconic songs, “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” and “Sunshine On My Shoulders.”

Poems, Prayers & Promises is the third in a series of vinyl releases from Daytrotter, the only physical products in the site’s six-year history. Daytrotter is a popular website best known for their live sessions recorded at The Horseshack studio in downtown Rock Island, IL, and made available to fans for download or streaming exclusively on the site each day. Each session features an intimate live performance and an illustration of the artist. 

Poems, Prayers & Promises 40th Anniversary Edition will be released on April 3rd, 2012 on limited-edition vinyl with new Daytrotter artwork by Johnnie Cluney, whose ink and marker renderings have become synonymous with the site’s look and charm. Digitally re-mastered from the original recordings, the album will also be available for download at digital retailers worldwide via Sony Legacy.
