Lucky no. 13

Walt is sending us a note to tell about his new solo album, ominously-titled "Well....Let's Look at Your Track Record, Shall We?", release date Nov. 5, 2010. It is available to listen to, you can read about it (and even to buy physical CD or download tracks) here: Downloads are available, also, at all the usual places, and you can also listen to the entire opening track here: (click on "Summer Calls the Shots").

The cover shows Old Scratch himself, behind a big oak desk with law books and a framed picture of the Titanic sinking in the background, evaluating the new recruit in Hell and piercing the layers to get at the Truth so as to better assign the proper level. Dante would be proud.

Being the 13th solo album since 1989, Walt feels he really hit upon a lucky number for 2010. I think you'll find this album has a bit more of a jazzy feel in places, but there's also some shark guitar so hopefully it all balances out. Walt hopes you enjoy what you hear, and buy copies for your aged auntie, beloved clergy, and just generally all friends and family of delicate and frail disposition......if you're in their will, of course.

On a side-note Walt also adds that since last Summer, he's been playing lead guitar and talking drum with a 10-piece West African ensemble called "Aciable". It's lead by singer/dancer Jean-Claude Lessou, from the Ivory Coast. They have been gigging heavily around Austin, and hope to get into the studio early in the new year.
