Americana Highways brings you this song premiere of Uncle Walt’s Band’s “You Touched My Heart,” from upcoming album An American in Texas.
An American in Texas was originally released in 1980 and now, 39 years later, Omnivore Records is rereleasing it on vinyl, CD, and digitally. The original 12-track album is supplemented by a 25-track CD which includes eight tracks from Six • Twenty Six • Seventy Nine, which was originally available only on cassette, plus five never-before-released live and studio tracks.
Take a listen to crystal clear, late ’70s folk by Uncle Walt’s Band and get hooked on its timelessness. “You Touched My Heart” is both gentle and motivating acoustic gem.
This is a great recording. Hearing this song reminded me of all of Walter’s powers. Great guitarist, great singer, great writer. It’s spellbinding. — Dave Ball
