John Hiatt recorded 'Master Of Disaster' with the North Mississippi All Stars as his backing band. With the title track, he addresses the artist's midlife crisis and finds creative renewal in the process, a theme revisited in the country balladry of "Old School." There's a ragtime spirit to 'Wintertime Blues' and 'Back on the Corner', the insistence of a tom-tom's thump on 'Love's Not Where We Thought We Left It' and 'Find You At Last', a slide guitar that slices and dices through 'Ain't Ever Goin' Back'. New West Records is proud to release this amazing album on stand alone color vinyl for the first time ever. This is a limited edition pressing.

When I read that Master of Disaster was a collaboration with the North Mississippi All-Stars, I was intrigued so I bought it. What a masterpiece! I don't understand the reviewer who hates this in comparison with his earlier work. This is surely the best Hiatt I've heard!
Here are my favorites: the plaintive, tuneful title cut; the jaunty Wintertime Blues; the romantic When My Love Crosses Over; the hard-driving quasi-religious Love's Not Where We Thought We Left It; the bleak Cold River; the hard-edged Find You At Last: the emotional Old School; and the down-and-out Back On the Corner.
The collaboration between the North Mississippi All-Stars and John Hiatt is one that should bring them both more fans. The mostly understated music here suits the lyrics and Hiatt's singing style perfectly. They work well together. I am now looking forward to the next Hiatt CD, hopefully featuring these same musicians.
The CD cover is kind of silly, but those who buy it will find a handsome booklet within that contains the lyrics. If you are a John Hiatt fan, go with the majority of the reviewers in this case and get Master of Disaster. You should not be disappointed.

Not this one! I've lost count of the number of times I've been about to hit "eject", only to start singing along, or thinking "no, I like this one......"
For me, this is a very strong set of songs, with great lyrics, a depth of emotional range and a true "grower". John Hiatt seems to have been keen to look back, with nostalgia a key component (Master of Disaster / Thunderbird / Old School / When My Love Crosses Over) - but the standouts for me are the grittier "Love's Not Where We Thought We Left It" and "Cold River". I agree with one of the other reviewers in that it isn't groundbreaking, but as my son said "How does he come up with those lyrics, dad?".
A class album from a class act.
Bei diesem Album löst er sich vom rauen RhythmBlues Sound, den auf den meisten seine Alben mit den Goners, seiner Hausband, kultiviert. Statt dessen leichter, shuffelnder, swingender und federnder Rock im Südstaaten-Stil mit dezentem Schlagzeug und fettem Bass. Die Zusammenarbeit mit Jim Dickinson und seinen Jungs aus Memphis/Tennesee hat dem Album gut getan. Sehr tight, sehr konzentriert, toller Sound und sehr sparsam und gekonnt arrangierte Bläser.
Die Songs wie immer interessant, tolle Texte, witzig wie mein Lieblingslied "Thunderbird" und immer sehr laid back. Da werden nette kleine Geschichten erzählt (Master Of Disaster), die verpasste Jugend besungen (Old School) und im bitteren "Cold River" tingelt das kinderlose Paar nach der Abtreibung neuen Jobs entgegen. Besseres Songwriting auf so gleichbleibend hohem Niveau gibt es aus den USA wohl kaum zu hören.
Und Hiatt klingt und singt anders als sonst entspannt, lässig, ohne Allüren und die manchmal etwas bemüht rauen Kopftöne - eindrucksvoll!
