Product Overview

Each era has its great songwriters and without question, John Hiatt is one of this generation's most talented and prolific icons. First coming on the music scene by penning Three Dog Night's "Sure As I'm Sittin' Here" Hiatt has crossed and redefined many musical genres and boundaries much like Randy Newman, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and James Taylor. Having evolved from punk to pop, from country to folk to rock, everything his voice emotes, guitar riffs weave through and pen writes on paper display a sense of wisdom, honesty and humor as he cleverly examines modern Americana. It's all fair game--love, rock musicians, voyeurism, childhood memories, Elvis...and in the end, each song reflects us as lovingly as a Norman Rockwell painting. The artists that have recorded John Hiatt songs are quite impressive...Johnny Adams, Asleep At The Wheel, Rosanne Cash, Eric Clapton, Marshall Crenshaw, Rodney Crowell and more. Included on this 2 CD career overview are Hiatt's own original versions of some of those songs such as "Riding With The King," "The Way We Make A Broken Hear," "Drive South" and, of course, "Thing Called Love," "Memphis In The Meantime," "Tennessee Plates" and "Lipstick Sunset." John Hiatt--Anthology covers every period of his career, from his early Epic albums through his MCA, Geffen, A&M, Capitol and Vanguard releases. Rarities include "Spy Boy," "Don't Think About Her When You're Trying To Drive," "The Way We Make A Broken Heart" and his live version of "Angel Eyes."

While there are a couple of other John Hiatt collections on the market, ANTHOLOGY gets the edge not only because it offers the greatest amount of material (it's the only two-disc set), but because it's the only cross-licensed one. That means it draws from all the labels Hiatt's recorded for and covers the entire length of his career. Consequently, we get his quirky, somewhat Randy Newmanish mid-'70s beginnings ("Hangin' Around the Observatory"), his lean, mean, American Elvis Costello rocker phase ("Slug Line," "Doll Hospital"), and the heartfelt Americana of his critically lauded BRING THE FAMILY album ("Lipstick Sunset," "Have a Little Faith in Me"). Hiatt didn't stop moving after that, though. Disc two gets into his latter-day work, when he'd broken through sufficiently to afford bigger production but still kept an eye on the knockout punch ("Feels Like Rain," "Real Fine Love"). Providing sonic continuity throughout are Hiatt's inimitable sandpaper soul voice and deceptively casual, offhandedly precise songcraft.
