Walking Papers – WP2 (2017)

Jem of Jemtunes, born in 1959, turned 59 this year. So ‘The ’59’ has celebrated 59 years of cracking tunes with a few albums from each year – 1959 through 2018. Today, as we near the end of this year-long series, we reach the last entry of the 59th year – 2017. Tomorrow, and for the last three days, we’ll delve into year 60 – 2018.

WP2 was the second album from Walking Papers, released at the back end of 2017 in the UK and on January 19, 2018 in the US.

Classic Rock Magazine called the album

…a heady and timeless cocktail of dusty blues, atmospheric grunge and classic rock’n’roll that has the history of their home town Seattle and decades of road-worn experience woven deep into its fibres.
