Publicity Europe, Peter
Walter Rootsie and his Blue Connection –
Dark Water (Wraf Records ©
should have been the second regular band album became a
long music project influenced with life events of the band members.
Walter was not the only one who experienced health problems. Their original bass
player Pete Bergman had to be replaced
for the recording sessions due to a serious illness and guitarist Parska Saharinen fell down from
a high stage and broke his shoulder and had to be replaced temporarily during
the recording sessions too. In the end it made “Darkwater” a better album because
all this setbacks were translated into the music so “Darkwater” is also about
setbacks in life and how to overcome them.
Many Finnish musicians played their musical part in the 5by5 studio in Helsinki and after his
recovery Parska added his part later in the recording studio in Helsinki,
Finland. The second phase began at the Stable Studio at Arnhem, Holland. There all
the additional music parts from Dutch
musicians were added to the master tape. The mixing and mastering was done by
Roel Toering, a sound engineer who specializes in making vintage instruments
sound just right
instruments where used to give each arrangement
its own unique “Darkwater” soundtrack.
Dark Water is a metaphor for fear. Fear for the unknown. The kind of
fear that wakes you up in the middle of the night all sweaty and distressed and
let you ask that question “Will I survive? Will I Overcome?” In 14 different stories this tale is told. And every time you listen to
these personal songs they reveal a new secret that lay buried
under the Darkwater that everybody knows so well.
