John Hiatt and The Goners with Sonny Landreth Celebrate Slow Turning's 30th Birthday
John Hiatt & The Goners on July 2, 2018
In our record collections there are many albums that have become old friends. We may not meet that often, but when we do the pleasure is undiminished. For these pals we may even celebrate special anniversaries, of their release or perhaps what was going on when we bought them. One of my greatest old mates is John Hiatt’s Slow Turning, which he released 30 years ago. If I could choose how to mark that milestone I’d ask Hiatt to gather the original band, The Goners, and play the whole record. Sounds fanciful?
