Ft. Walton Wake-Up Call

Last Updated on August 26, 2022

James McMurtry’s The Horses and the Hounds is coming out this Friday. It is also his first album since 2015’s Complicated Game and first album for his new label New West Records.

I’ve only listened to the album once and it is great. I’m really loving Ft. Walton Wake-Up Call.

McMurtry recorded the new album with legendary producer Ross Hogarth (Ozzy Osbourne, John Fogerty, Van Halen, Keb’ Mo’) at Jackson Browne’s Groovemaster’s in Santa Monica, California. Hogarth recorded McMurtry’s first two albums, Too Long in the Wasteland and Candyland and later mixed McMurtry’s first self-produced album, Saint Mary of the Woods
