Not so great
Thursday, December 12, 2019
Don’t be fooled. This is definitely NOT the “definitive” collection of John Hiatt’s albums. If you carefully read the description, it states that “It’s the definitive collection of his albums “ON NEW WEST RECORDS”, not the definitive collection of ALL of his albums! Missing stellar albums include “Bring the Family”, “Stolen Moments”, “Slow Turning”, “Perfectly Good Guitar” “Hiatt Comes Alive at Budokan”, “Riding with the King”, “Walk On” and “Y’all Caught?”. Personally, as I consider myself THE definitive John Hiatt fan, I would rather if I had to choose, own just one of any of these albums, rather than have the box set and NOT have any of the other albums! Final thoughts: Do we REALLY need or even want the “portable vinyl suitcase”?? I thought that all suitcases were portable, but hey, you will look snazzy when you show up to the next slumber party lugging it....
