Image of Walter Hyatt


Born and raised in Spartanburg, South Carolina, but associated with the Texas music scene, Walter Hyatt was a songwriter and guitarist whose music could not be corralled into any one pen. This was always an aspect of his musical life, dating from his early listening as a child -- digging into R&B and rock & roll, the latter style transforming into a maelstrom of styles all in itself in ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Texas jazz/country September 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It's really hard to describe the late Walter Hyatt. He reminds you of such legendary Texans as Willie Nelson, Guy Glark, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Lyle Lovett (who produced this album), though as a vocalist, he has as much in common with Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Mel Torme in their younger years. This record has been more or less ignored because it lacked a radio-friendly single, but if you like any of the folks I've mentioned above, give it a try. I guarantee you it's a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Heaven January 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Walter Played a brand of music that is outside of any category. King Tears is as beautiful and soulful an album as you will ever listen to. I was fortunate enough to buy this album back in 1992 and I was so impressed, I sent it to all my friends for Christmas. I saw Walter the night before the crash at my bar in Key West.He and his band had just taken their first sail on the water, and had to perform their show with a bit of sunburn. Thanks for the music, Walter and Happy Sailing.

This cd will transport you to another place.I saw Walter Hyatt on Austin City Limits and bought this cd the next day thinking that it couldn't possibly be as good as his performance. I was wrong.This cd has such a wonderful beauty to it. Our loss is heaven's gain!

5.0 out of 5 stars special September 20, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Walter is truely missed by all who met him. This recording was great before his death but somehow takes on a new importance in my collection in more recent times. Well written, well produced, well played, and well sung. What more can a CD offer?

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful November 11, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The ValuJet crash that took Walter Hyatt's life was a true musical tragedy. "King Tears" showcases his ability to mix folk, jazz, country, and Texas swing into his own style of music. The songs skip along so well that you may easily miss the lyrical depth. For example, on "Outside Looking In" the narrator goes from feeling isolated being on the outside to understanding how nice it is to be on the outside too. "Aloha" is Jimmy Buffet without the kitsch. The musical accompaniment is impeccable. Matt Rollings' deceivingly simple piano fills on "Situe" are the perfect compliment. As far as the movation behind the re-release of King Tears mentioned by Ms. Winters above, from what I've read, MCA re-released it at producer Lyle Lovett's request. Thanks Lyle.
