'Cornbread'By Cornbread

Walter Trout – Deep TroutWalter Trout – Deep Trout
{2005 | Ruf Records}

Walter Trout and his band The Radicals play blues rock to rock on this compilation that spans his earlier years. While Trout is not Stevie Ray Vaughan, he is a master of the six-strings and at home in the blues and rock with more weight goin’ to the rock side.

Walter Trout - Guitar|Harmonica|Vocals
Oliver Leiber - Rhythm Guitar
Frank Cotinola - Drums
Marty Walsh - Rhythm Guitar
Michael Jochum – Percussion/Drums
Martin Gerschwitz - Keyboards
Mark T. Jordan - Hammond Organ & Electric Piano

1. How Much Do You Want – kind of loud at times.
2. To Begin Again – good vocal, drum, guitar mix.
3. Put It Right Back – a classic rock tune.
4. Under My Skin – almost gospel-like.
5. Victor the Cajun – killer guitar solos.
6. Kill the Monkey – I liked the keys, song was fair.
7. Running in Place – nice poppish’ ballad.
8. Fast Moving Traffic – reminded me of classic 70’s rock.
9. Earrings on the Table – easy goin’ slow rock, kind of reminded me of Styx.
10. Motivation of Love – excellent guitar.
11. If You Just Try [Live] – psychedelic guitar and bluesy vocals.
12. Tribute to Muddy Waters – solid bass, good track.
13. Life in the Jungle – excellent acoustic version.
14. Big Chain – Cornbread’s pick for best song.
15. So Sad to Be Lonely [Live] – an extremely well done electric guitar piece.

A decent album, far from the bluesy roots I’ve come to expect. That being said, it’s a pretty good rock guitar CD.


Ciao’ for now, peace.
