Lilly Hiatt – Walking Proof
Eight years and four albums into a recording career, Lilly Hiatt has just turned in her latest, “Walking Proof”, and the quick answer is that this album is the highlight in a solid career and will likely be the album that all her future records will likely be judged by.
Across 11 tracks, the Americana/southern rock musician slays it with a mix of sentimental and full-throttle jams that manage to both be highly personal and yet relatable. The record starts off with the slow tempo “Rae,” but just two songs in, on the driving “P-Town,” Hiatt picks up momentum that carries her until the end.
On her previous release, “Trinity Lane”, Hiatt earned praise for taking a big leap forward and diving into more personal issues. That is also the key to the success of this album as her storytelling can really bring you in and is completely relatable.
The biggest difference between this and previous albums is her willingness to balance contrasting sounds, new to Lilly’s sound is an ability to shapeshift from country to rock, sometimes in the same song, like “Brightest Star,” with it’s slide guitar laying down alongside a barrage of thick guitar distortion. And while there are plenty of standout moments on the record, “Never Play Guitar,” is certainly one of the best and features her father; legendary song writer, John Hiatt.
With a fantastically eye catching album cover, “Walking Proof”, is well worth a listen and will have the listener back again and again.
So take care out there, and when it’s time to get supplies make a stop at the Vinyl Underground and grab this and other great albums out right now to fight the boredom and the blues.

Here’s where we talk about the virus. We are all freaked out. We are all nervous and anxious. We are still open. 7th Heaven has been deemed essential by the Kansas City MO City Manager due to the products we sell in the rest of the store, not in the music department. If you have questions, ask. In the mean time if you want to come shop in person, we will say hello, give you a virtual high five- a virtual hug if we know you that well- and we will keep our distance. We love all of our customers and are glad to keep this little bit of normalcy in these crazy times. With that being said, we will also offer various other ways to get your vinyl fix. We have always shipped music and we will continue to do so. We also offer curbside pick up. Call us, pay, call us when you are outside and we will deliver your freshly sanitized purchase to your car. Starting this week we will also deliver within a 10 mile radius of our shop. There is a $5 fee and we will make deliveries on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Call the store if you have any questions.
Thanks for reading this week’s Joni Mitchell New Vinyl Thursday post! Mention that you did before you check out and we will take 20% off of ANY one item in the store! Offer good through 4/08/20.
Enjoy the music and we will see you soon. Your loving Vinyl Underground at 7th Heaven staff:
Sherman, Shawn, Dave, Gordon, Heather, Cat, Dylan, Daniel, Doyle, and Max
