The Last of the True Believers is singer-songwriter Nanci Griffith's fourth album, and her last with the folk music-oriented Philo Records. The acclaim accorded her from her previous Once in a Very Blue Moon and the current album would gain her a contract with a major recording company after this album. Here, Griffith continues her turn toward a more country-oriented work than her first two albums, which were primarily folk-sounding. It also includes two songs which would later be hits for Kathy.

The album cover shows Nanci Griffith standing outside a Woolworth's, holding a book of poetry-a recurring motif in her album art-while lovers dance behind her. That combination of the most quotidian, small-town details and the most committed but rarely pretentious poetic ambition is the key to Griffith's art.
