In 1987, John Hiatt, clean and sober and looking for an American record deal, was asked by an A&R man at a British label to name his dream band. After a little thought, Hiatt replied that if he had his druthers, he'd cut a record with Ry Cooder on guitar, Nick Lowe on bass, and Jim Keltner on drums. To Hiatt's surprise, he discovered all three were willing to work on his next album; Hiatt and his dream band went into an . studio and knocked off Bring the Family in a mere four days, and the result was the best album of Hiatt's career.

Hiatt’s breakthrough album, Bring the Family was largely inspired by the real-life blended family he and his wife had assembled, with two young children from previous relationships. From a New York Times feature about Hiatt: On that album Mr. Hiatt sang mostly about his real life and what he called the instant family he had just assembled. A few years before the album’s release, his then-wife, from whom he was separated, committed suicide. That made him a single parent to their infant daughter, Lilly.

The lyrical honesty of Hiatt’s songs and the blurred musical lines between country, soul and rock on the album spoke to us and said stop with your crazy arrangements and weird chords, write some songs that are easy for Leslie to sing and let the band just play. The songs we were writing formed the basis of The Long Acre which cracked the US market for the band. I don’t think it would be the album it became had it not been for our discovery of Bring The Family

The result was Bring the Family, an album that won universal praise for its enthusiastic performances as well as its now-classic and oft-covered compositions. Hiatt was not only back – he was reborn, his previous studio works a distant memory. A&M/UMe has now reissued Bring the Family and its 1988 follow-up, Slow Turning, as vinyl-only releases, which is a smart move. What makes Bring the Family such a rich listening experience is twofold: great songs, great performances. Certainly Hiatt – who wrote all the songs – is responsible for the former, but the latter wouldn't have been possible without three additional musicians
