We're All Fans of Uncle Walt's Band (and Walter Hyatt)

   It was 20 years ago this month (May 11, 1996) that Walter Hyatt died in a plane crash.  Hyatt was the founding member of Uncle Walt's Band in the 70s and 80s, then went on to a solo career in the 1990s. All three of his solo albums, including the posthumously released Some Unfinished Business, are still available, but both of his Uncle Walt's Band cd releases are out of print, so I thought I'd right that wrong and post them here tonight.  I should also mention just how sublime his first solo release King Tears is - still one of my top ten albums from the 90s.

Aussie Rob,

I think it's just an issue with Zippyshare - I downloaded a different file and got a virus message. Just ignore it and close down, then re-open Google Chrome once it's finished downloading.
