This album playing at around 1.2 hours, containing fifteen tracks, including a brilliant booklet covering Walter's career so far plus some great photos. Excellent so far, but what about the music, what about the blues in this release. I've been a fan of this man's music for some years, and how he's not packing huge arenas is beyond me,he truly is one of the greatest guitarists there are, has a fantastic voice, a band who take some beating in any level of music. Walter is without any doubt the best blues guitarist there is, and there are some pretty good ones out there, honed his craft with Canned Heat then as a member of John Mayall's Bluesbreakers before getting going as a solo performer in his own right.OK to this album, simply the best blues album you'll hear anywhere this year likely next year as well, its an artist and band at the very peak of their creative powers. This should go down as an absolute classic, an album to treaure and play over and over again, in fact get a couple of copies as you could wear the first one out it's truly that good. All the songs are new,are self composed and there's not a weak song among the entire collection.Walter's made some very fine albums over recent years, but in depth,quality and sheer enjoyment this just about tops the lot. The opening 'Saw My Mama Crying' could have been by it's title a sad song,but it's about mother's life, sometimes good other times not so, but at over five minutes this song builds, with some storming guitar and is an absolute stunner to kick off the set with. A mix of all kinds of blues, over it's fifteen tracks, that really does what it says on the cover 'Blues For The Modern Daze', what a title but what an absolute gem of an album.Please I mean please do not miss getting your copy of what could be the best overall blues album for several years, yes it is that good. Walter Trout, thank you so much this is just an amazing set.
