John Hiatt: Slow Turning

John Hiatt’s work has been covered by many artists, including Jewel, Buddy Guy and Roseanne Cash. Riding with the King was the cover tune of an album by Eric Clapton and B.B. King that went double platinum. Here are Drive South, Perfectly Good Guitar and Have a Little Faith. Something Wild vaguely reminds me of Johnny Rivers’ Secret Agent.

Here is a page at Hiatt’s site that links to others on which he is featured.

    I’m a big fan of John Hiatt. He exemplifies the Americana genre of music. The album that includes “Have a Little Faith in Me” was essentially recorded with a supergroup. The disc is _Bring the Family_, and features the talents of Hiatt, Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner. The story is that a record exec asked John to name his dream band members, and they all said yes.

    The group also recorded one disc under the name of Little Village. It wasn’t quite as well-received as _Bring the Family_. Still, I would have given up a prized appendage to have seen one of the shows supporting the album.
