Walter Trout’s latest release, Survivor’s Blues is no ordinary album. From the day he conceived the project to the moment he counted off the first song in the studio, he had a bolder plan for this release. Trout shares, “I’m riding in my car sometimes, and I’ve got a blues station on – and here’s another band doing Got My Mojo Workin’ – and there’s a little voice in me that says, “Does the World need another version of that song?” So I came up with the idea. I didn’t want to do Stormy Monday or Messin’ With The Kid. I didn’t want to do the Blues greatest hits. I wanted to do old, obscure songs that have hardly been covered. And that’s how Survivor Blues started…”
Long-standing fans have given up trying to second-guess Trout’s next move. The tracklisting of Survivor Blues is a window into the 67-year old’s fast-moving backstory, chronicling a five-decade career whose one constant is his deep love of the Blues. The track “Nature’s Disappearing” nods to his celebrated ‘80’s tenure in John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers. You’ll find cherished favorites from a lifetime’s listening, with songs that caught Trout’s ear at key junctures in his journey, from backing up John Lee Hooker in the ‘70’s, to bringing the groove to Canned Heat in the ‘80’s or breaking through as a solo artist in the 90’s.
Note: There will be no intermission.
