John Hiatt - Crossing Muddy Water - New Coloured LP
Format: New LP Label: New West Records Barcode: 607396544615 Released: 20/11/2020
Transparent green/yellow vinyl
Crossing Muddy Waters was originally released in 2000 on Vanguard Records. After being out of print for many years, New West and John Hiatt have made it available again. Crossing Muddy Waters features 11 Hiatt compositions, half of which feel instantly familiar. the rambunctious Lift up Every Stone sounds a little like some of Tom Waits's more accessible recent efforts, while Take it Down is a love-lost lament that's as heavy as a foggy evening. Crossing Muddy Waters was cut in three days and features only two accompanists - the uncommonly sympathetic Davey Faragher and David Immergluck.
