John Hiatt is a musical lifer: a craftsman so obsessed with his work that he’ll likely make records until he’s no longer physically able. He began recording in the early '70s, and while his commercial peak came in the late '80s and early ‘90s (when he had the push of a major label), his albums have remained consistently strong. This summary of the eight albums he recorded between 2000 and 2012 is as smart and well-selected as one could hope. Fans will find some personal favorites missing, but newcomers trying to figure out if Hiatt is for them will hear a decent cross-section of what he does. “My Old Friend,” “Everybody Went Low,” “Love’s Not Where We Thought We Left It," and “Master of Disaster” feature a mix of careful midtempos tracks and tougher upbeat grooves, all with heartfelt and clever lyrics that resonate long after the songs are over. There’s even a “new” track for the hardcore fans: “Here to Stay,” with guitarist Joe Bonamassa, is a tough, strutting rocker that attests to Hiatt’s staying power.
John Hiatt hasn’t slowed down as he has gotten older. He has been in a real groove over the last 12 years and this collection highlights the best of these albums. It’s two tracks each from his last 8 albums and a new track with Joe Bonamassa. A great place to start, but once your hooked…..you’ll want more.
Let me slide
Anytime you can get the name Rowdy Yates into a song is a good day. Great fast moving song by John Hiatt,and with Sonny Landreth on that killer slide guitar how can you go wrong. Kept my feet tapping the whole time!
A hell of a good comp!
This is a very satisfying compilation of Hiatt's music from 2000-2012, an ace job of cherry-picking the best stuff from his later albums. What a reliable and pleasing craftsman he is! Highly recommended!
