Party of One finds our hero signed by A&R legend Lenny Waronker to Warner Brothers Records. The personnel were drawn from Nicks bandmates on 1987s John Hiatt masterpiece, Bring the Family (Lowe on bass, Jim Keltner on drums and Ry Cooder on guitar) combined with the twin heads of the band The Moonlighters (Austin DeLone-- ex of Eggs Over Easy and Bill Kirchen-- Original Lost Planet Airman and twang kingpin). Nick brought in Dave Edmunds to produce and play even more guitar. They rip through a fantastic batch of original songs highlighted by All Men Are Liars and Whats Shakin on the Hill which are still staples of Nicks live show. This strong effort led into the Little Village project and can be considered the final chapter in the first half of Nicks career.
