“Bring The Family” is John Hiatt’s first album to chart on the Billboard 200, and featured his first single entry on the mainstream rock chart with “Thank You Girl”. It features Ry Cooder on guitar, Nick Lowe on bass guitar and Jim Keltner on drums.
The four would later reform as “Little Village” and release an album in the 1990s. “Bring the Family” is one of the cornerstones of Hiatt’s career, and not a show goes by without a generous helping of its songs.
