5.0 out of 5 stars MADE FOR CRANKING--UP LOUD November 3, 2005
This is a fantastic performance by John Hiatt and the Guilty Dogs. John of course is very loose and kinda goofy acting at times, but the music is anything but goofy. This guy is truely passionate about his music and looks like he having a good time performing. One great aspect of this dvd is the superb audio mixing they accomplished. It means that I can crank to radical levels on my volume control, and the sound remains crystal clear, with no distortion. Now thats what I call a treat !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth getting! November 10, 2005
When I first saw this back then,I was upset for the fact that I didn't record it and now it's available on dvd,and with bonus songs to boot!! You can tell that John Hiatt is having a good time with his mugging and gestures,but that doesn't matter when the songs and the band are so good!! Who cares if he can't dance! Neither could Peter Wolf or Billy's just not the point...I hope Austin City Limits releases more performances on dvd,like the one of K.D.Lang back in the early 80's and a few others.....This is worth getting!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pardon me for raving December 28, 2010

John Hiatt gives a fantastic performance from the first note to the last: fiery, funny, and flat-out fun.

His young band, The Guilty Dogs, matches his energy and virtuosity, especially Michael Ward on guitar, but the endlessly expressive Hiatt is the unquestioned center of this 1993 show. He's completely switched on, goofing and mugging for the audience, whispering, growling, and howling, dancing like a man possessed, playing and singing some of his best songs in a brilliant blend of styles, including folk, country, rock, and funk. You can't take your eyes off him as he rips through 14 great tunes (and the few that weren't hits deserved to be).

Hiatt is well-known for being a songwriter's songwriter, but his delivery puts the seal on the deal. His versions of "Loving a Hurricane," "When You Hold Me Tight," "Memphis In the Meantime," "Something Wild," "Buffalo River Home," "Thing Called Love," "Tennessee Plates," and "Slow Turning" are positively irresistible. He closes with "Perfectly Good Guitar," the title track of the marvelous album that this tour supported. Though he threatens to smash his own guitar, he fortunately changes his mind and ends up rocking it like a baby in his arms.

His dedications are as cockeyed as his lyrics: to Marilyn (a high school crush who never gave him the time of day), to Anita Rodgers Court (late daughter of country music founder Jimmy Rodgers), to Bonnie Raitt (for "keeping tires on the old tour bus"), and even to Barry White (a label-mate who told Hiatt, "If you don't go slow, you got no show.") But he plays only two slow numbers, the soulful opener "Icy Blue Heart" on guitar and "Have a Little Faith in Me" on keyboard, both solo. They're every bit as thrilling as the remaining dozen songs, which are all barn-burners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Live Set from a great American songwriter November 1, 2005
A great set from John Hiatt backed by the always solid Guilty Men..including Elvis's current bass player Davey Faragher...Even though it's from a concert over 10 years ago...still sounds current... A great selection of classic Hiatt songs and the typically great quality video and sound...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Night of Songwriting and Storytelling July 28, 2007
On December 14, 1993 John Hiatt came to Austin City Limits in support of his Perfectly Good Guitar album. With him were the Guilty Dogs: Davey Faragher (bass), Michael Urbano (drums) and Michael Ward (guitars) and for the next ninety minutes the audience was treated to pure Hiatt magic from the sparse Icy Blue Heart and Have A Little Faith In Me to the rocking Slow Turning the show highlighted his catalogue to that point.

This is the entire concert that was edited into the thirty minute television broadcast. Looking back Hiatt comes off a little goofy and the dancing has got to stop but the music is dead on perfect. The disc is worth the price just for the terrific rendition of Buffalo River Home.

I watched with the DTS audio mix and the clarity was very good for an almost 15 year old television show. If the rest of the Austin City Limits videos are this well done this will be a concert DVD series to pay attention to.

If you like Hiatt's music or are just curious this one is well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure For Haitt Fans! April 12, 2013
Simply put, this is one of the finest Austin City Limits shows ever! John Haitt is an American songwriter nonparaleil and here he is with the Guilty Dogs who are totally up to the task and sympathetic to the passion of his musical vision. For a Americana (forI lack of better definition) songwriter Haitt's songs speak simple truths that have a unique power to cut to the bone. What makes the whole affair even better are they rock out with abandon. Sure Haitt mugs it up, but it is all part of his passion and you have got to love it in the end because he delivers. It's hard to not give superlatives to The Guilty Dogs as they are, perhaps, the most perfect 3-piece backing musicians Haitt has ever put together. Add to this the truly excellent audio mixing/recording that has made it to disc on this set with bright and clear video editing that is a textbook example of how a concert can be presented with excitement less edit-nervosa and what you got is the perfect Haitt concert. This is a rare gift and if anyone is a Haitt fan this is an absolute must buy. Kudos to Amazon for keeping it in-stock and available!

The DVD is awesome. It is classic John Hiatt. You will definitely not be disappointed. I only wish there were some more recent concert footage as he just gets better with age.

I get the chills every damn time I put on Icy Blue Heart. I can SEE the entire song and FEEL the lost disconnect of potential lovers. This is a great one from John.

This awesome video is a must for a Hiatt fan like me. With the hot guitar player from Wildflowers (no not Sonny L. this time), these guys rock. Sound and video are great.
