Bring the Family is John Hiatt's eighth album. It was his 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 1992

To Hiatt's surprise, he discovered all three were willing to work on his next album; Hiatt and his dream band went into an . studio and knocked off Bring the Family in a mere four days, and the result was the best album of Hiatt's career.

Bring the Family" is his eighth album. In 1987, John Hiatt, clean and sober and looking for an American record deal, was asked by an A&R man at a British label to name his dream band. After a little thought, Hiatt replied that if he had his druthers, he'd cut a record with Ry Cooder on guitar, Nick Lowe on bass, and Jim Keltner on drums

The result was Bring the Family, an album that won universal praise for its enthusiastic performances as well as its now-classic and oft-covered compositions. Hiatt was not only back – he was reborn, his previous studio works a distant memory. What makes Bring the Family such a rich listening experience is twofold: great songs, great performances. Certainly Hiatt – who wrote all the songs – is responsible for the former, but the latter wouldn't have been possible without three additional musicians

Shop Bring the Family. Even John Hiatt's most ardent fans weren't ready for this masterpiece to be dropped in their laps in 1987. Hiatt had spent most of the 1970s and 80s playing pick-a-style, bouncing from southern country rock to Elvis Costello redux and back again. With Family, though, he pared away every bit of excess and delivered his best set of songs with the understated, impossibly tasteful backing of Nick Lowe on bass, Ry Cooder on guitar and Jim Keltner on drums.
