Uncle Walt’s Band Anthology: Those Boys From Carolina, They Sure Could Sing…
Release Date: March 9, 2018
Uncle Walt's Band, from Spartanburg, South Carolina, was an eclectic music trio that moved to Nashville in 1972 and shortly thereafter to Austin at the urging of Willis Alan Ramsey. An attempt at an album proved unsuccessful, so the band headed back to Spartanburg in 1974 where they recorded their own debut LP, Blame It On The Bossa Nova. “Walter Hyatt, David Ball and Champ Hood have been an inspiration to me ever since the first time I heard Uncle Walt’s Band,” said Lyle Lovett. This long overdue collection attempts to right missed opportunities of the past and finally gain Uncle Walt's Band the recognition they deserve.
