Feel Like Going Home: Cover Albums

We are beyond thrilled to announce the December 2nd, 2016 release of a new retrospective box set of Walkabouts cover albums and related live recordings, Feel Like Going Home: The Covers.

This 3 LP + 4 CD box set contains our 1993 covers album Satisfied Mind featuring folk and country versions of an eclectic mix of our musical heroes from Patti Smith and Lenny Kaye to Charlie Rich and Robert Forster (to name but a few), and our companion album Train Leaves at Eight covering only European music from artists such as Jacques Brel and Neu! that was released in 2001.

As a bonus and a special gift to our friends and fans this box includes a third double LP, the live album Gone To Hell, Back By Eight. This album includes recordings of two concerts from the Satisfied Mind and Train Leaves at Eight eras.

Congratulations to our friends Transmissionary Six!

For the first time ever, the music of the Transmissionary Six (Terri & Paul from The Walkabouts) will be available on vinyl. June 10th will see the release of “Selected Songs / 2002-2012.” The band turned to longtime Walks cohort Chris Eckman to choose which ten favorites would make the album. Those are the songs that appear, right down to the running order Chris proposed for each side. Walkabout Mike Bass (aka Michael Wells) makes a small cameo appearance as well on harmonica. Having been warmly remastered and optimized especially for vinyl, this album sounds simply wonderful.

Folks who live in Europe can learn more about the album HERE.

Goodbye Joe

With deep sadness we mourn the passing of Joe "Bass" Skyward. Joe was our friend and bass player for the band during the "Ended Up a Stranger" and "Train Leaves At Eight" album and tour cycles. The courage with which he fought his cancer was beyond inspiring.

Dear friend, you will be missed.
