Recorded throughout 2013, the album contains ten of Walter’s meditations on life and mortality following his diagnosis. Two more songs are included as well: one written by Trout’s former collaborator John Mayall for the album, and a cover of a J.B. Lenoir tune.
The album’s release coincides with the upcoming release of Trout’s biography. Written by Henry Yates, the book follows Trout’s career as a hard-working, hard-living bluesman and sideman to John Mayall before finding his big break in 1989 and striking out on his own for a successful solo career.
Currently, Walter Trout is in the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles awaiting a liver transplant. His family have set up a page to collect donations to help cover Walter’s medical expenses, and we strongly urge that anyone who can donate does so.
