John Hiatt - Crossing Muddy Waters (Yellow Vinyl)
New West Records began working with John Hiatt in 2003, shortly before he began recording ‘Beneath This Gruff Exterior’. Now, nearly 17 years later, New West are proud to celebrate his catalogue by releasing four classic John Hiatt albums on standalone vinyl for the first time.
Crossing Muddy Waterswas 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.
