Walter Tore video on youtube

Postby watertore » Fri Sep 08, 2006 3:47 pm

last summer, at my mother in laws funeral party, I was video digital-taped, and got a cd copy of it. It is a bit long, but I didn't know how to edit it. It is a solo harp number, and one with my 1940 national and harp.

This was an emotional day. My wife and I had been caretaking her and her husband on and off, for about 6 years. Three weeks later, we did it all again, when her father died. Judy's mother and family are WWII surviors, and Jewish. Many spent time in camps, and many were killed/died in them. You can see them all in the video. I have another clip, with them talking about thier days there inbetween songs, but it is 30 odd minutes long, and youtube only allows 10 minutes.

The quality is not the greatest, but you get the gist of it. Enjoy. Walter

Thanks Walter. I like your control on your vibrato/bends. Reminds me of Mike Stevens.
But most of all when you broke out the National and started singing about religion, heaven, etc. Now THAT was some real blues...........Brian

Yer a true bluesman,Walter! You bring that real traditional flavor with ya' every time you start servin' it up, and the video on my screen was nice and dark and almost grainy lookin', so it looked like something done for the archives. It wuz wonderful!

thanks bubba. I appreciate your support. Like I said, the blues harp player community never let me in. If you don't do it just like they do it, you are out. I never did want in for those reasons, but it hurt to watch so many go right by me with notariety, all the while sounding basically like all the other established players. Oh, well, I am still here, and in the near future, or so, most of these guys will more than likely have passed, and maybe I will be "discovered" :D :D Either way, life is good, and I am very thankful for places like this! Thanks. Walter

Walter: you've paid the price for your decision to go "Spontobeat",but you've had the reward that many of us never get: you had the satisfaction of staying true to yourself and finding out what would happen if......; you're a true national treasure. Stick to your guns.

I think Walter's just happy to see young people carrying on the blues.

I am, too.
