Don Walker releases a brand new live album, recorded at Melbourne’s Caravan Club, featuring songs from the acclaimed album ‘Hully Gully’ and the vast Don Walker catalogue.
Walker has few peers, if any, in illuminating the darker underbelly of the Australian psyche, whether he’s performing with Cold Chisel, Tex, Don and Charlie or solo. Angry women, luck-chasers, heartbroken prodigals who don’t smell good and anyone who just wants to throw the afternoon away on a game of pool – they’re all still there recorded live.
Featuring the warm neighbourly sound of his band The Suave Fucks, who happen to be some of the country’s finest musicians, including Glen Hannah, Roy Payne, Garrett Costigan, Michael Vidale, Hamish Stuart and special guest Dave Blight, this album will place you front row at any one of Don’s live shows. From dreams of the Landsborough Highway to the greasiest rockabilly, Don tells the tales and his wholesome friends paint the horizon behind.
Recorded by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation at the Caravan Music Club in Oakleigh in July 2012, the album was mixed by Chris Thompson at ABC Studios, Melbourne.
This rare live album will only be available for digital download via Don Walker’s website and Bandcamp. And for those music nuts out there that appreciate a high quality sound recording it’s available as 96K 24bit wav files for your listening pleasure.
‘Live at the Caravan’ available via Digital Download Via Bandcamp
