After a wonderful 'We're All In This Together' in 2017 (see here), 'Walter Trout' returns with his three friends and two guests including the former Doors guitarist 'Robby Krieger' releasing a new album 'Survivor Blues' where he choiced12 tracks that are not necessarily some standards but which sweat all an authentic blues and this obviously with a master's touch because, when it's not his guitar that transports us, it is his voice that affect us : from the beginning, we find ourselves on a small cloud with 'Me, My Guitar And the Blues' which, just with the few words of its title, sums up well the universe of 'Walter Trout' and who embarks us from the first chords. It would be necessary to quote all the titles but it’s useless to heap up even morebecause the best is still to press the play button and to be carried by this good blues which is at the origin of many styles of modern music. In summary, with this latest album, 'Walter Trout' and his companions show us once again that despite all the health problems they have all gone through (hence the name 'Survivor Blues'), they always have the fishing to offer us these magical and timeless moments ...
