Product Description

although I do prefer the down home sounds in blues, I must admit that Walter's new record is an excellent example of how a heavy contemporary blues/rock album should be. Great songs, good craftmanship, superb sound (produced by Jim Gaines in Memphis). Powerful, and intelligent. Respect. He loves the way Hollywood Fats used to play, by the way ...

5.0 out of 5 stars 16 different songs 13 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
That doesn't happen a lot, when an artist makes an record that consits of 16 different kinds or types of songs. Recorded in Mephis with producer extraordinary Jim Gaines PBS is an extraordinary album. Medium-slow bluesrock opener 'Got a broken heart' followed by accoustic and electric slow blues 'Obstacles in my way' followed by angry, mean uptempo(with his most excellent rhythmguitar parts) blues 'One Way Street' followed by softly and tender electric countrybluesstyle 'Tender Heart', the album shows many styles. Other outstanding tracks: rough raw rocky 'Hard time blues' with very well controled solo, beautiful soulsinging style and dedicated to his brother 'song for a wanderer' (first you will laugh when you here Trout'singing on this track, suddenly you will realize it's not so easy to sing like that) and the straight to your heart 'Let me be the one' with Trout on excellent vocals, only backed by piano. And two instrumentals: beautiful bandplaying on Marie's Mood (written during his wife Marie's difficult pregnancy) and the it gives you a tremendous sweet feeling (almost just like Peter Green's Albatross) albumcloser(but doesn't play it live, sadly enhough) 'Boo' (with only Trout on guitar). From all his record, to my opinion his most various and outstanding one. One of my favourite records

5.0 out of 5 stars A "must have" album! 16 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought this, having had it recommended by Walter himself.
"Maries Mood" would have been enough reason for me to have bought it, but not one of the tracks (rockers, slow blues, stompers or ballads) are short of excellent. Walter's songwriting and delivery are stunning, even without a guitar in his hand, he can touch you with his words and vocals ("Let me be the one" is what I'm referring to)
This is not a guitar album aimed at guitarists... it's a fine album for anyone who enjoys good music written and played with feeling. Quite simply, you have to buy this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Less flash, more subdued: very well done! 20 Aug 2012
By Koos
Format:Audio CD
When Walter Trout released this record in 1997 it was a surprise for me. Having him seeing playing live a few times, having his previous records I was ready for action-jackson-bluesrock. But "positively Beale street" took me by surprise.

At first, I could not give the record a right place. The record doesn't contain a lot of the powerful bluesrock like on his previous records. The most heavy one, the rocky, faster 'hard time blues' was an instant favorite. But I noticed that the guitarsolo in this song was something I had not heard before by Walter Trout. Later I started to listen to this record more closely. I noticed the lyrics in the modern Delta Blues 'Obstacles in my way' ("... and all the obstacles, they are in my way, trying to get the best of me, each and every day", with the nice break in the line "all these frustra - ted situations". I noticed the excellent groove and riff in 'One way street'. I noticed the sweet lovesong 'Tender Heart'. I noticed the powerfull 'Temptation', with it change to a slow speed in the middle of the song. I noticed the bandplaying in the instrumental 'Jules Well'. Walter Trout recorded "Positively Beale St." at Beale Recording Studios, Memphis, Tennessee, USA. Echoes of the Memphis Blues, Elvis Presley (Don't worry about it) and Roy Orbinson (the beautiful falsetto, dedicated to his brother 'Song for a wanderer') are to be heard. Finally, I am a huge fan of Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Their instrumental 'Albatros' is one of my all time favorites, an incredible piece of beautiful music. Oh well. Walter Trout his 'Boo' comes very close to 'Abatross'. The song is a most beautiful ending of "Positively Beale St.
