about

Emotional Rescue begins the first in a series of reissues looking at the music of guitarist Carl Weingarten and his Multiphase Records label, starting at his highly sought after collaborate album with Walter Whitney, Dreaming In Colors.

With an early interest in photography and Super 8 film leading to a degree in cinema production, Weingarten’s other, self-taught, love was the slide guitar. Taking its blues roots and merging them with his visual arts background created a unique “painting in sound” style of playing.

While looking to break into the film industry he began writing and recording his own film scores and other music for modern dance companies. From this, he founded Multiphase Records in St Louis in 1980. By the time of Dreaming In Colors, the label had released a series of cassettes and vinyl albums offering abstract, experimental, jazz-fusion, new wave and increasingly, new age compositions.

Throughout this period the work of engineer, keyboardist and programmer, Walter Whitney was often present and by the 1985 release of Dreaming In Colors the duo had collaborated for a number of years and released several projects together, most notably as members of the Delay Tactics band.

Recorded during off days from the Delay Tactics sessions, the album came together at Whitney’s Subterranean Sound studio with a focus away from the bands guitar driven instrumentals to explore a multilayered approach to synthesis, blending textures with Whitney’s original samples and sound design, while Weingarten’s guitar moved from shining solo moments to complimenting the overall oeuvre, all with heavy washes of delay.

This ecumenical approach led to the creation of this compelling album. A masterful conceptual whole that is linked by rich melodies and a concise playing style, heavy on substance while never forgoing the uplifting vibrations.
