5.0 out of 5 stars The evolution of John Hiatt, 26 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mystic Pinball (Audio CD)
I've been listening to John Hiatt since I lived in the US in the late 80's and confess to have been a collector of bargain price deletions and anthologies - both vinyl and CD. Seeing him live in London a couple of months - Under the Bridge - fulfilled a long ambition. I've just bought 'Dirty Jeans' and 'Pinball Wizard' at full price - how I owe that to the guy - I'm greatly enjoying them both before even getting into the second listening of each. Great songwriting, excellent musicianship from the Combo, and that marvellous voice. Highly recommended.

I have been a fan of JH since last year, after a friend recommended 'Dirty Jean's. I am nearly 61, & have been a music buff since the 60's, yet I had never heard of him. 'Dirty Jeans' blew me away, & is now one of my fave albums EVER. I have played 'M P' many times since Tuesday, & although there are some decent tracks on it (We're Alright Now & Blues Can't Even Find Me) both excellent, I can't get into it like the excellent 'Dirty Jeans, Crossing Muddy Waters, The Open Rd & Walk On'. I too saw him live (Newcastle in July), a 400 mile round trip, and he was AMAZING, so it hurts me inside not to fully agree with your good self & others, on his latest offering.

Listen again Bob, and if you don't have the back catalogue, pick up the US Import double Anthology which covers a lot of my old vinyl well. Then listen again. The track which caught me immediately was actually 'I know how to lose you', but the rest s up there with the best too.
Bob (same vintage :))

Hello, Bob here again. Yes I do have Anthology, along with - Live In Texas, Live @ Budokan, Crossing Muddy Waters, Tikki Bar, Walk On, Same Old Man,Open Rd, Dirty Jeans, Live @ the Hiatt & M P of course. All I am saying is although I regard it as a good album, it is not (in my opinion), as good as his more recent stuff. Dirty Jeans is on another level to this. I will keep playing it, no worries on that score. But it is only a 4* review in my opinion.
