The Ghost of Hypnos Past
Lies I Can Believe
Notes: I wish there was more of this! Studio outtakes from Walters solo album. He ain't no Sinatra or even a Donald Fagen, but I really like his grovelly voice. One of the Highlights of the '96 tour was hearing him sing Jack of Speed. Medical Science is just a great tune with some of the of the greatest lyrics. There are just a few imperfections, there is some hiss present throughout, 2 secs of silence in The Ghost of Hipness Past at 5:41. It sounds like it might be LP sourced. I did a sample de-hiss and it sounded a little better but I have left the files intact so you can do with them what you like.
Rumor has it, that there is a copy of a solo show he did in 'Frisco in '94. It's my holy grail of Dandom, so if someone has it or knows about it I'd appreciate any info you could give me.
"And all the jiveasses and the true believers
The bullshit givers and receivers
Here today tomorrow gone
To the triage tent in the great beyond
Wherein the angel tangoes with the infidel"
