CD cover Face The Music (Ruf, 2000)
"The songs for Face The Music were taken from various European concerts during 1999. The benefit of this is that the best performance of each song could be included, resulting in a 'cream of the crop' set list. And an impressive set list it is... Face The Music contains some of his most inspired performances." -- Electric Blue

CD cover Livin' Every Day (Platinum Distribution, 1999)
The band is now renamed from the Walter Trout Band to Walter Trout & the Free Radicals and the label is Ruf Records of Germany. "Livin` Every Day" introduces Paul Kallestad on the keyboards. -- Blues Internet

CD cover Walter Trout (Ruf, 1998)
"Trout made his name with Canned Heat and John Mayall and is a major talent in Europe, but he's strictly his own man on his homecoming debut. Trout's voice and guitar do justice to 12 blues, rock and soul songs." -- Blues Access

CD cover Positively Beale Street (Provogue, 1997)
The "Positively Beal Street" and "Walter Trout" CDs contain the same tracks with different packaging. -- Blues Internet

CD cover Breaking The Rules (Provogue, 1995)
I was recently introduced to Walter Troutís album Breaking the Rules. There is little doubt that this great guitarist emits infectious waves of bliss every time he strums the great Strat. Deep, poetic and totally engaging, I have rarely listened to an album that has moved me in such proportions. -- Atomic Chaser guestbook entry

CD cover Tellin' Stories (Silvertone, 1994) ...Trout's only disc on the Silvertone lable
"'ll be taken to the edges of the blues by each of their [Silvertone's] artists -- these are the quills. I happen to like being jostled, as it shows me the blues has somewhere to go." -- Barry Silverberg, NY CD Blues

CD cover Live: No More Fish Jokes (Provogue, 1992)
Recorded live at the Skanderborg Festival, Denmark and De Hanehof, The Netherlands. This disc kicks off with a great cover of Robert Johnsons' "Dust My Broom". -- Blues Internet

CD cover Transition (Provogue, 1992)
"Transition is a more pop/rock oriented album. The rocker "Kill The Monkey" is great. A song about pollution with a killer guitar solo. Another great song is "Fast Moving Traffic". Again a song with fabulous guitar work!" -- Blues Rockers

CD cover Prisoner of a Dream (Provogue, 1991)
Prisoner Of A Dream features Swedish drummer Klas Anderhell and for the first time a horn section. It includes covers of Robert Johnson's "Love In Vain" and Bob Dylan's "Girl From The North County". 11 songs, including the bonus track "Tribute To Muddy Waters". -- Blues Internet

CD cover Life in the Jungle (Provogue, 1990)
"His first recording, Life In The Jungle, is a mix between live and studio recordings. [Trout] is doing a live version of Jimi Hendrix' Red House. I love the way he starts off that song. The live tracks are recorded at the great Midtfyns Festival in Denmark."
-- Blues Rockers
