TAS Rated 3.5/5 Music, 3.5/5 Sonics in the August 2008 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
Hiatt's first album since 2005's critically acclaimed "Master of Disaster".
Same Old Man was recorded at Highway 61 Recordings and produced by John Hiatt.
Appearing on the album are Kenneth Blevins on drums, Patrick O’Hearn on bass and
Luther Dickinson on guitar, mandolin and national resonator. John’s daughter,
Lilly Hiatt, sings harmony on the songs “Love You Again” and “What Love Can Do.”
John Hiatt’s career has spanned more than 30 years and his songs have been
covered by everyone from Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, and BB King to
Iggy Pop, Three Dog Night and The Neville Brothers.
"The album sounds quite good, with a straightforward, upfront presentation, nice focus on vocals that never seems spotlighted, well-captured acoustic guitars that are warm, woody, and ringing, and a solid sense of weight and tunefulness to bass and drums" - Wayne Carcia, The Absolute Sound, August 2008
