Walter Trout Announces 25th Anniversary Vinyl Series
The blues rock legend will reissue 10 LPs this year.
2014 marks 25 years since Walter Trout began his solo career, following many years playing in Canned Heat and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
To celebrate, the guitarist is reissuing 10 albums from his back catalogue on high quality 180g vinyl. The records will be limited to 2,000 copies per album worldwide and 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," said 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."
