On a creative roll after 's acoustic Crossing Muddy WatersJohn Hiatt returned rejuvenated as well as electric. Old backing band the Goners returned for his 17th -- and best -- album in the 13 years that have passed since the same outfit accompanied him on 's classic Slow Turning.
Unlike its intentionally cheesy tongue-in-cheek title, Tiki Bar is a keenly constructed collection of heartfelt, bluesy tunes that rock -- and One Nite Stand (Of Wolves And Sheep) (Radio Vers.) - Various - Radioplay - Euro Express - 478U - Sep rock hard -- with tremendous soul.
Subtle use of drum loops and the occasional overdub enhances, but doesn't update, Hiatt 's roots approach. Like the Band, whose "The Weight" he evokes on "Hangin' Round Here," these songs seemingly spring from a bottomless well of melodies and hooks, all energized by his raw, throaty vocals.
The famed Goners guitarist, Louisiana's Sonny Landrethpositively burns throughout, especially on slide, and the group consistently coalesces like Crazy Horse on a hot night. They follow their eclectic leader through waltzy ballads, folksy love songs, mid-tempo burners, and even an unusual album-closing ten-minute psychedelic romp, "Farther Stars," that takes the Beatles ' "Tomorrow Never Knows" to the Middle Eastern swamps.
