The Forgotten Records - #1

Little Village was a supergroup of sorts, combining the talents of four great musicians on the periphery of the rock mainstream. Released in 1992, the self-titled album put John Hiatt, Nick Lowe, Ry Cooder and Jim Keltner together again after they worked together on Hiatt's 1987 album Bring The Family. Although at times the record sounds like a John Hiatt solo effort, solid songwriting and tight playing are evident throughout. In Chicago, the song Solar Sex Panel got a lot of airplay, but there were several other standout tracks. I liked She Runs Hot because it featured some shared vocals a la the Traveling Wilburys. Definitely intended to be a one-off effort, Little Village was razed after a brief tour.

The song: She Runs Hot

Buy it: Little Village
