|BULL-BAT TIME - Walter Forbes CD
Americana roots music from a veteran folksinger
Down home, Bull-bat is our name for the Common Night Hawk. They fly late every summer afternoon , catching insects until full dark. "Come over around bull-bat time" is an invitation to sit down at the end of the day and relax --- to enjoy the sunset, a drink, and a little music. At my age, I find myself metaphorically in Bull-bat time, but in no hurry, so come have a visit with me at this special time of day. The drink is up to you.

Further notes from Walter:
is my fifth album, two for RCA Victor (1961 & 62), one for Walt
Disney (Nashville Coyote, 1973) and one for Jack Music (1993). Since
it apparently takes me twenty years to work up an album I think we can
safely say that Bull-Bat Time will be my last. I've had an incredible
life! Musically I played with the "Third Marine Division Poor Boys
Hillbilly Band" in 1957 & 58, The "Lonesome Travelers" with Norman
Blake and Bob Johnson 1959-1967,I was a regular guest on the Grand Ole
Opry from 1961 to 1973, an RCA recording artist 1961-62, and I was the
lead human in the Walt Disney for TV Movie "The Nashville Coyote" (the
coyote got top billing and roast beef for lunch). I was blessed with my
fifty year friendship with Jack "Cowboy" Clement who kept my
professional musical interest alive even while I was running a textile
business in Chattanooga. Jack was my publisher as well as my mentor so
in 1993 I began what I thought would be a demonstration recording of
some songs I wrote. We started having fun, though, so we finished "Tried
and True" as an album with Mark Howard as producer and Jack as
co-producer. Bull-Bat Time is special to me too because all of the
session musicians are people I've know and played music with for years.
As if that weren't enough my wife and best friend of fifty two years,
Kitty, our daughter Kate Forbes Dallimore (a successful actress in her
own right) and my dear friend of many years Marshall Chapman sang the
harmonies with me. The album cover art and design are by my grandson
Avery Robinson. So this is my album of heart. I also think is is the
best of the lot!
