Music You Don't Know You Like Yet


Some Unfinished Business (Volume 1)


Mr. Hyatt was working on this album at the time of his death in 1996. (He was a casualty of a Valu-Jet crash in the Florida Everglades.) His wife, Heidi, worked with many noted musicians to get this album finished, thus the title. This is an exceptional album. Mr. Hyatt puts his rich baritone voice to good use on this piece of modern Americana. Exceptional production can be found here as well as the use of many different stringed instruments, woodwinds, and occasional harmonica. The album starts out strong with "Motor City Man" and continues with the jazzy blues of "Sheik ShBoom" and on to the honky-tonk blues of "Reach for Me". Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
