    A testament to the admiration Hiatt receives from other recording artists is Rhino's various artists tribute album Love Gets Strange: The Songs of John Hiatt. Released in 1993 (and now unfortunately hard to find), the album contains 18 Hiatt compositions performed by artists from various genres, including country (Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Kelly Willis), r&b (Neville Brothers, Johnny Adams) and rock (Nick Lowe, Dave Edmunds, Marshall Crenshaw).

    Although the album noticeably does not contain Bonnie Raitt's hit version of "Thing Called Love", it does include Jeff Healey's "Angel Eyes", which was a Top 5 single in 1989. Although all of the songs were written by Hiatt, 7 of the 18 songs on Love Gets Strange have never appeared on a Hiatt recording; those songs are marked with an asterisk (*) above. Love Gets Strange is a worthy tribute to a great songwriter.
