“If this record doesn’t sell a million copies, I quit the business, said producer T Bone Burnett while listening to a playback of Peter Case, the classic self-titled solo debut by the Nerves co-founder and leader of the Plimsouls (“A Million Miles Away”). Touring in support of this seminal album, Peter Case hits the road supporting an expanded 30th anniversary reissue edition with bonus tracks of this legendary release.
Helmed by T-Bone Burnett and Mitchell Froom, Peter Case includes 11 originals and a cover of the Pogues’ “Pair of Brown Eyes” — recorded before their version was released, thanks to a tip from Elvis Costello — and features an all-star cast of guests from Mike Campbell (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers), Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) and Rusty Anderson (Paul McCartney), to backing vocals by John Hiatt and Victoria Williams, string arrangement by the incomparable Van Dyke Parks and contributions by session giants Jim Keltner (drums), Jerry Moratta (drums) and Jerry Scheff (Elvis Presley's bassist).
The disc earned Case his first Grammy nomination for the song “Old Blue Car” and topped The New York Times’ list of best albums of the year, with NYT contributor Robert Palmer stating, “Peter Case is the sort of album that is going to be remembered and treasured for years to come.” An auspicious start and essential chapter in Case’s 13-album-catalog, Peter Case is not only revered by everyone who's ever heard it, its sound and feel spearheaded the songwriter movement now known as Americana.
