DRIVE SOUTH is generally regarded as the second installment in a trilogy (along with BRING THE FAMILY and STOLEN MOMENTS) of singer-songwriter John Hiatt's late '80s resurgence. While this period was certainly fertile and arguably his artistic peak, calling it a comeback is something of a misnomer. Hiatt, you see, never went away. For more years than he'd probably care to remember, Hiatt's records gained the esteem of critics and musicians while the record buying public remained largely unaware. However, with Bonnie Raitt's wildly successful version of his "Thing Called Love," Hiatt began to see some of the recognition that his better-known peers enjoyed.
One listen to SLOW TURNING and it's easy to see why. His country-tinged songwriting skill is honed to a fine point, allowing a broader melodic side to ride shotgun with a more openly emotional center. From outlaw narratives ("Trudy and Dave," "Tennessee Plates") to joyous stompers ("Slow Turning") and kiss-offs ("Paper Thin"), he goes from strength to strength before finishing off with one his finest ballads ("Feels Like Rain").
