Album Notes
I had some medical adventures in 2012 and it took a while before I was well enough to attempt an album. I figured BullBat Time (That time between sunset and full dark) would be my final album. My old friend David Ferguson (Ferg) produced the album in 2013 and brought together some of the best pickers in Nashville to play on the sessions. Just about every one on the album are friends that I have known and played music with, some for more that forty years. The songs I selected are a mixed bag, some traditional, some contemporary, but all are songs that I love to sing.

Five Stars- A Truly Superb Americana Album!
I've known Walter Forbes for over thirty years and have always been in awe of his vocal and musical talent and his unique ability to capture audiences large and small and entertain them. This new album is truly outstanding, from Walter's spot on vocals and banjo to the all star cast of Nashville musicians, our mutual pal Fletcher Bright on old time fiddle and "Miss Kitty" Forbes, Kate Forbes Dallimore and Marshall Chapman on harmony vocals. The arrangements and production are tight and flawless. On A Cold Wintry Night is my favorite along with Bristle Cone Pine, East Virginia Blues and The L & N Don't Stop Here Anymore. Do yourself a musical favor and buy this superb Americana album!


Good Stuff!
Walter and his musician friends and family have produced a pleasing and interesting piece of music here. He's been "fooling around with music" for most of his life and it shows off in this fine recording. The lyrics are fun and interesting, the vocals are pleasing and bring us back to a time when life was slow-paced and simple. Stuff that you would love to hear coming out of your kitchen or parlor on a warm summer day, sipping lemonade, with an overhead fan circling. Well done Walter!

Great Americana Folk Music
This album is true and fresh in every way. Has wonderful songs and great musicianship from everyone in the band. Each song paints a special picture in my mind of what the lyrics are all about. Great job Walter.
