Chris from New West emailed me tonight with news that he got the powers that be to release exclusive mp3 for bloggers from the new releases by Dwight Yoakum and John Hiatt. I have already written pretty extensively about Dwight (here) and linked to two other songs from Blame The Vain but one more song can’t hurt.
John Hiatt is someone who hasn’t graced these virtual pages yet and it’s a darn shame. He’ll go down as one of the legendary music makers of the 20th century and he just keeps crankin’ em out. This time with pruducer Jim Dickinson and 2/3 of the band The North Mississippi Allstars (Jim’s sons Cody and Luther). The album is called Master of Disaster and the recent press is proclaiming it one of John’s best (love the cover art).
