John Hiatt: Crossing Muddy Waters

Rocker John Hiatt waited 26 years to go acoustic, and the results are a soulful blend of blues, folk, country and gospel. Hiatt took the acoustic leap after being dropped by his label. He recorded the album in just four days at a home studio outside of Nashville. The songs are classic ruminations on lost love with some hope and humor thrown in for good measure. David Immergluck plays mandolin and electric slide guitar. Davy Faragher holds forth on bass and folding chair.
