As yet another mind blowing installment int the extensive Johnny Winter Live Bootleg Series on Friday Music, Mr. Winter himself went back to his 40+ year archives, and has developed one of the finest collections of blues and rock music fit for a king.
Nine incredible selections including the defintive versions of Looking For Trouble, Shake Your Money Maker, the stunning Blue Mood, as well as a very rare bonus track of the acoustic version of Muddy Waters' Rollin' and Tumblin'
Features rare artwork hand picked from the Johnny Winter archives, as well as new liner notes from Vintage Guitar's TOm Guerra.
Remastered by Joe Reagoso (Johnny Winter, Deep Purple, Freddie King), this fourth installment is something to truly cheer about...ROCK ON!
This CD is typical of what we have come to expect from Johnny Winter-a great selection of (mainly 12-bar blues) songs; strong, gritty vocals, and smoking hot guitar.
Johnny is equally skilled at slide and non-slide playing. In fact, there aren't many people who can match him on the slide guitar. Listen to "Serious as a Heart Attack," and you'll hear what I mean.
Other than "Just Like a Woman," the songs are mostly in the traditional urban blues form, but played with a hard edge. These tracks are very close to what Johnny did on his trendsetting "Progressive Blues Experiment" LP back in the late '60s. It's Chicago blues spiced with a dose of rock and roll.
This CD will be appreciated by anyone who appreciates expert guitar playing. If you are a rock fan but haven't listened to much blues, I encourage you to listen to Johnny Winter to see what you've been missing.
