If you haven't heard this before, this is the album that set Hiatt on the charts. dll?p amg&uid 1007&sql A17djvwdva9tk. He'd languished for a while with subpar bands and subpar songs until he struck gold with this one-a document that reflected his emotions after losing his wife to divorce and his brother to suicide. His band on this album included Nick Lowe on bass, Ry Cooder on slide guitar and Jim Keltner on drums. Quite an all-star lineup. Most consider this the best album he ever released
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 . studio and knocked off Bring the Family in a mere four days, and the result was the best album of Hiatt's career. 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.
