Drugi studyjny album liderów The Walkabouts, wydany w 1998 roku.
Second studio album by the guiding lights in The Walkabouts. This time around Chris & Carla are credited for playing a variety of instruments: guitars, upright piano, Swinger 500 organ, Wurlitzer electric piano, percussion, synthesizer, loops, programming & assorted noises. They share the chores with fellow Walkabouts members past and present (from Grant Eckman to Christine Gunn) as well as assorted guests including steel-player David Immergluck on loan from John Hiatt, trumpet player Oscar Williams, the ex-Thin White Rope bassman John Von Feldt and current Seattle resident Danny Barnes of Bad Livers fame.
Just like the main band, the Chris & Carla duo is steadily developing and refining their sound. As diverse as the last four Walkabouts albums have been (from "Satisfied Mind" to "Setting The Woods On Fire" to "Devil´s Road" to "Nighttown"), "Swinger 500" marks a departure from "Life Full Of Holes". Listen to the instrumental "Bingo Catastrophe" or Oscar Williams´ trumpet playing on "Blue Winter Snow" for proof.
