Description

The self-titled album containing all Sammys own material - considered by many to be his best release - is very Dylan-esque. The second album Blue Ridge Mountain Skyline includes songs written by Walker with the exception of Waitin For A Train (Jimmie Rodgers) and Dust Storm Disaster (Woody Guthrie). Musicians include Bill C. Graham, who accompanied Glen Campbell and many other country stars on fiddle and Lyle Ritz, on bass, who went on to greater fame as a ukulele player. The great James Burton, Elviss guitar player for many years, also appears playing dobro on Sammy Walker; his standout solo on Days I Left Behind is something special. Both albums were recorded in Hollywood with Producer Nik Venet who had worked with Linda Ronstadt and John Stewart.
