Spacecase Records is happy to release the latest single by Walter Daniels, formerly of JACK 'O FIRE, '68 COMEBACK and BIG FOOT CHESTER. A Side "Almost Hit by a Truck" features Kid Congo Powers (GUN CLUB, CRAMPS, BAD SEEDS) on guitar. Bill Anderson, Billy Steve Korpl, Kevin Cutin and Ralph White contribute on the B Side. Front and back cover art by the legendary Art Chantry. Limited to 300 copies.
Perhaps you've heard Walter Daniels' 2014 acoustic collaboration with John Schooley, 'Dead Mall Blues'? Maybe you've basked in the majesty of his recordings and performances with world class ensembles including but not limited to The Revelatory, The Oblivians, '68 Comeback, Big Foot Chester, Texacala Jones & Her T.J. Hookers, Jack O'Fire...need I go on?
OK, I will. Walter's new 7" on Spacecase features his vocal & harmonica stylings on a cover of Daniel Johnston's "Almost Got Hit By A Car" backed with "My Mind Got Bad" (as popularized by Sonny Boy Williamson). The accompanying musicians include such luminaries as Kid Congo Powers, Ralph White, the Crack Pipes' Billy Steve Korpi, Bill Anderson and Kevin Curtin. PAY FOR IT NOW.
Roots from Big Walter himself, covering D. Johnston on the A-Side turning the accordion pumper into what could have been an old blues standard - Walter is on vox here, accompanied by none other than Kid Congo on guitar for a deep echo time traveller with percussion by "tambourine duct-taped to foot"! "My Mind Got Bad" on the flip is an actual blues/country oldie from Yank Rachell with Walter on harmonica/vox and a three piece of mandolin, fiddle, banjo and guitar behind him for one of those love gone bad haunters.Shoulda put this one on a 78. Scum stats: 300 copies.
