The Walkabouts have always supported the non-commercial recording and trading of our concerts. In that spirit, we are very excited about the existence of "The Walkabouts Archives" and thankful to all those involved in setting it up. ~ The Walkabouts
Chris & Carla – A compilation of coversongs
13 coverversions recorded live between 1998 and 2008. Setlist and artwork included in the download.
At John and Paisley's
A rainy late February Sunday in Seattle. A gathering of souls for friendship and mostly acoustic music - featuring the epic Interstellar Observatory, Terry Lee Hale (with harmonica!), and a never heard original song and cover from the Walkabouts. Magic from 1988.
The Walkabouts - 1990-05-25 Waldkirch, Germany
This is a special request for one of the first shows The Walkabouts played in Germany in a real small venue. Surely not the best sound, but of great historical value. I`m sure Carla has some memories of that, she used to live in Freiburg in another lifetime. Enjoy!
