Ignore the Exit: The Open Road of John Hiatt

I had planned to look at John Hiatt’s 2001 release, The Tiki Bar is Open, but—while reviewing our now-album, 2012’s Mystic Pinball—I became quite fond of Hiatt’s 2010 release, The Open Road.  The Open Road is a bluesy album, perfect for that road trip, a solid album for that long drive on...well...an open road.

Ever Wonder Where Foghat Came From?

My first introduction to Foghat was “Slowride,” overhearing other parts of that album—Fool for the City—at parties and so forth.  It was their live album, though, that really got me interested in them, 1977’s Foghat Live.  Prominent on that album, at track three, the final song on side one of the LP, was a Willie Dixon song, “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” first made famous by Muddy Waters.  It was my favourite tune on that great live album and I decided to look into their back catalogue.

We all know what CPR is and when you add David Crosby’s name some of you may picture something going on at the side of a freeway in LA.  Instead, this is a very positive, wonderful thing—and a story better told elsewhere.  For our purposes, CPR is a group which includes David Crosby and his son, a son he didn’t know he had for some years.  So for others this is a cool news story; for us it is a look at an album by Crosby, Pevar, and Raymond—you can search them up and figure out who they are.

A Pick From Aaron Neville's The Grand Tour

Now that I am listening to it I am not sure why I chose The Grand Tour for the then-album to compare to Aaron Neville’s My True Story.   I know it too well to hear properly again, anew, and there are other albums by him that I have underappreciated and listened to less.  I had The Grand Tour on CD way back then upon its release, when I had a forty-five minute commute.  I just let it play. Over and over.
