Review of John Hiatt – Terms Of My Surrender (New West/Warner Music Canada)

John HiattOne of the best songwriters of the last century, John Hiatt’s got the blues on Terms Of My Surrender. Of course, there has always been a bit of a blues slant to Hiatt’s output in the 40 years since his debut so hearing him take somewhat of a deeper dive into the genre isn’t that much of a left turn. An intimate and endearing record, Hiatt has never sounded more vital. Included in the deluxe edition of the album is a DVD featuring Hiatt performing tracks from the record in addition to classics like “Have A Little Faith In Me” and “Thing Called Love.”
