CD Release - Face the Music (Live) [Europe Only]

Oct 1, 1999

CD release in Europe only on 31 January 2000. It will be his last release on the Provogue label. CD PRD 7121 2
(A live album will be released in the USA on the Ruf label in May/June 2000)

The title is Face the Music (live on tour)

1. Got a broken heart
2. Hard time blues
3. The reason I'm gone
4. Come home
5. Marie's mood
6. Soodo slide
7. Obstacles in my way
8. Tired of sleeping alone
9. On the rise

Total 52.72

The first two cuts are unbelievable... especially Hard Time Blues... I cannot sit still to that one.
Then he goes into a very emotionally charged slow blues (The Reason I'm Gone).
Then a shuffle.... raw and unchained as Walter can do them with Come Home.
Then again a very emotional explanation about Marie's Mood....Walter talks about how the song was written while his wife was expecting their second son..... and then he gets wild again with Soodo Slide. An instrumental fireball, that sounds like he is doing slide work... but he is not... just showing off his skills with his hands.
Obstacles is a great change of pace. Starting very simple with just guitar and vocals and growing into a frenzy of sound.
Then again a slow blues (Tired Of Sleeping Alone...) a song about hating the"road" and missing his baby (made up I believe on stage....). Again a very deep felt blues cut... and then all out blasting on "On The Rise" - a very energetic way to end the show....(CD).
