2013 collection. The dawning of the new millennium coincided with a new chapter in the career of John Hiatt. After a quarter century of releasing records on major labels five in all he kicked off an over 13-year run as an independent artist, recording a pair of albums with Vanguard before moving to New West, his label home for more than a decade. These albums contain unflinching reflections on the bad old days, weighed against his latter-day front-porch serenity. The collection features 17 songs, at least 2 from each of the 8 albums released between 2000-2012 & the previosly unreleased song "Here To Stay" ft. Joe Bon.
