                                Bikini Club, Barcelona, Spain October 28th, 2010

 "Have a Little Faith in Me" is a song written and performed by John Hiatt that appears on his 1987 album Bring the Family. His version of the song has also appeared on the soundtracks of the movies Look Who’s Talking Now (1993), Benny & Joon (1993), The Theory of Flight (1998), Cake (2005), My Best Friend’s Girl (2008), Love Happens (2009), and Father Figures (2017). Live versions were included on 1994’s Hiatt Comes Alive at Budokan? and 2005’s Live from Austin, TX. The song has been included in all of his greatest hits collections, including 1998’s The Best of John Hiatt (as a new, rerecorded version) and Greatest Hits — The A&M Years ’87-’94, 2001’s Anthology, 2003’s 20th Century Masters, and the 2005 box set Chronicles.(Wikipedia)

 Thanks  to the taper!!

 The song was the first song written by Hiatt following his sobriety from drugs and alcohol, which had already contributed to his marriage breakdown and his being released by former record labels. Hiatt's original attempt at recording the song took place at a friend's studio and included a larger instrument accompaniment. However, the recording was plagued by technical issues. The morning after, Hiatt was informed that his estranged wife had committed suicide. Hiatt attributes the technical problems with the original recording as a sign that the song was not meant to be heard that way, and he eventually released the song with a much simpler piano accompaniment(Wikipedia)

 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. "Thing Called Love" later became a hit for Bonnie Raitt, and "Have A Little Faith In Me" is among Hiatt's most popular songs, although it wasn't released as a single in America.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Wild Thing (1967-05-11 Théatre d'Issy les Moulineaux, Paris)

The Jimi Hendrix Experience was an American-English rock band that formed in Westminster, London, in September 1966. Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jimi Hendrix, bassist Noel Redding, and drummer Mitch Mitchell comprised the group, which was active until June 1969. During this time, they released three studio albums and became one of the most popular acts in rock. In April 1970, Hendrix, Mitchell, and bassist Billy Cox performed and recorded until Hendrix's death on September 18, 1970. This later trio was sometimes billed as the "Jimi Hendrix Experience", but the title was never formalized.

"Wild Thing" is a song written by American songwriter Chip Taylor and popularized by the English rock band the Troggs. The Troggs' single reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK Singles Chart in 1966
