Slow Turning was singer-songwriter John Hiatt's ninth album, released in 1988. It provided Hiatt's only significant radio hit with the title track, which features the memorable line "I'm yelling at the kids in the back, 'cause they're banging like Charlie Watts". The single "Slow Turning" was also featured in the 2002 motion picture drama The Rookie which starred Dennis Quaid. "Feels Like Rain" was later covered by Buddy Guy. Emmylou Harris covered the song "Icy Blue Heart" on her Bluebird album.

"Stylistically, it's not a million miles removed from its predecessor [Bring The Family]. There's a slightly more layered sound, which may owe more than anything to the fact that a few more musicians besides the 'Goners' core help out. Session musician James Hooker contributes Hammond organ, former Eagles guitarist Bernie Leadon shows up on guitar, mandolin, banjo and mandocello, and Dennis Locorriere (of Dr. Hook) and Ashley Cleveland add backing vocals. But despite the additional firepower, Hiatt still keeps things relatively simple and focused... these new vinyl reissues – with no digital downloads or bonus tracks, it should be stressed – are a wonderful reminder of a time when Hiatt pulled himself out of a creative and commercial rut and began a very long string of truly inspired music that continues to this day. It's a ride well worth taking." - Chris Ingalls, Pop Matters
