2014 is a very special year for Walter Trout. The acclaimed blues rock guitarist celebrates his 25th Anniversary as a solo artist. Following many years playing in Canned Heat and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers, 1989 was the year he struck out on his own and never looked back.
For a man whose previous lifestyle and former addictions made him a candidate for early self-destruction, he has since matured into one of the world’s premier exponents of blues rock.
In joyful celebration Provogue Records will be releasing ten of Walter’s back catalogue albums as Limited Edition Deluxe Vinyl Series. Being released throughout 2014, the high quality 180g vinyl editions will be limited to 2,000 copies per album (worldwide). The albums will have a maximum of 20 minutes of music per side for enhanced sound quality.
“To have some of the best parts of my earlier recordings re-released and celebrated in high-quality audio, is a thrill of the highest order,” says Trout. “I hope my friends and fans will enjoy this commemorative series as much as I will. There is something about re-hearing the music on vinyl. The warmth and the expansiveness of the sound takes me right back to the day it was recorded.”
