Reseña de álbum

In 1987, John Hiatt, clean and sober and looking for an American record deal, was asked by an A&R man at a British label to name his dream band. After a little thought, Hiatt replied that if he had his druthers, he'd cut a record with Ry Cooder on guitar, Nick Lowe on bass, and Jim Keltner on drums. To Hiatt's surprise, he discovered all three were willing to work on his next album; Hiatt and his dream band went into an L.A. studio and knocked off Bring the Family in a mere four days, and the result was the best album of Hiatt's career. The musicians certainly make a difference here, generating a lean, smoky groove that's soulful and satisfying (Ry Cooder's guitar work is especially impressive, leaving no doubt of his singular gifts without ever overstepping its boundaries), but the real triumph here is Hiatt's songwriting. Bring the Family was recorded after a period of great personal turmoil for him, and for the most part the archly witty phrasemaker of his earlier albums was replaced by an wiser and more cautious writer who had a great deal to say about where life and love can take you. Hiatt had never written anything as nakedly confessional as "Tip of My Tongue" or "Learning How to Love You" before, and even straight-ahead R&B-style rockers like "Memphis in the Meantime" and "Thing Called Love" possessed a weight and resonance he never managed before. But Bring the Family isn't an album about tragedy, it's about responsibility and belatedly growing up, and it's appropriate that it was a band of seasoned veterans with their own stories to tell about life who helped Hiatt bring it across; it's a rich and satisfying slice of grown-up rock & roll.

Small subjects. Big insights.

While his contemporaries (Spingsteen, Mellencamp, Petty) go for big statements about broad themes (social insjustices, war, racism) John Hiatt makes the little things (relationships, self-image) matter most. Just like real life. Don't hesitate to buy this whole album as it is packed with devastatingly personal, confessional and tuneful songs written from an adult perspective rarely heard from in popular music.

Best of the best

If you are looking for a songwriter with heart, search no further. This is the best album of one of the best writers of our lifetimes. Whether it's struggling with his alcoholism, berating his own impulsiveness, or wistfully pondering love, Hiatt is honest and poetic. I dare you to say "Lipstick Sunset" is not one the most beautiful songs ever written. I urge anyone who has become a parent to deny the everyday truthfulness of "Your Dad Did." How much has his music touched my soul? My wife and I danced to "Have a Little Faith in Me" when we were married. We're still singing that tune.

An overlooked classic

A deep record. A man being honest with himself. Hiatt is one of the most overlooked singer-songwriters out there, and this is a record that should've been a lot bigger than it was. Had it been bigger, it may have spoiled. At $5.99, this is a steal! This is the kind of record you'd pay $15.99 for.

John Hiatt's sales have never quite matched his reputation. Hiatt's songs were covered successfully by everyone from Bonnie Raitt, Ronnie Milsap, and Dr. Feelgood to Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night, and the Neville Brothers, yet it took him 13 years to reach the charts himself. Of course, it took him nearly that long to find his own style. Hiatt began his solo career in 1974, and over the next decade he ran through a number of different styles, from rock & roll to new wave pop, before he finally settled...
