CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: At this stage, Hiatt is an iconic singer/songwriting veteran. Nearly forty years, and almost as many label affiliations after his 1974 debut, he’s still spinning stories that make you laugh, cry, howl and dance, all with a veteran band featuring guitarist Sonny Landreth cranking out behind him. — HH
