Johnny Winter
Voted one of the top 100 guitarists of all time in Rolling Stone Magazine Johnny Winter is a guitar hero without equal. Signing with Columbia Records in 1969, he immediately laid out the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues with a powerful combination of authentic Texas funk and his own high energy interpretation for the legions of fans just discovering the blues via ...

Format: Audio CD
How could I be the first to review this shattering album, still outstanding after nearly 40 years - released in 1967/8 amid the confusion of Johnny's jet propelled rise to fame after a long struggle through his youth, this album does not have a dud track, along with Second Winter it is still my favourite, Johnny at his roaring best, young, full of vigour and energy and his guitar playing all new, every note meant and deeply felt, fresh and wild. Plus Uncle John "Red" Turner on drums and Tommy Shannon on bass - how could it fail - they were truly the rhythm section to beat. I would love to have heard him perform "I got love if you want it" live, it has such an uplifting rhythym - to cut a long story short it is a marvellous album and if you like the blues you will love this.

By Mr. C. Todd on 28 Aug. 2009
Format: Audio CD
Recorded in the Vulcan Gas Company nightclub in Austin by two blues lovers before JW signed with Columbia, this album has a stunning live feel to it with some of the best blues guitar ever recorded, a bit like a blue print for later high energy white Texan blues players like SRV and Smokin' Joe Kubek. I love Johnny Winter's rough voice and frenetic guitar playing, although some people like my old house mate didn't get it, still even he couldn't get over the surprise Dobro versions of "Broke Down Engine" and "Bad Luck and Trouble". Try this out.

Highly Recommended!!!!!!! 16 Jun. 2006
By guitar19 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Any guitar/blues fan will appreciate this Progressive Blues Experiment remastered for the very first time. Johnny Winter's riffs are raw and dirty on this masterpiece. Tommy Shannon (former member of SRV and double trouble) lays down the bass, while Red Turner lays down the beat. From the very opening song Rollin' and Tumblin' to the very last notes of Forty-Four Johnny Winter shows his pure talent as a blues guitarist. This was the first album that brought Johnny Winter recognition as a guitarist in america. This is a true classic that is HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!

A must have blues album 5 Jan. 2008
By Richard Harrold - Published on
Format: Audio CD
From the opening riffs of "Rollin' and Tumblin'" you know right away that this is a blues album you want to keep. Johnny Winter made his name primarily with blues rock, with his name getting wide recognition through his Columbia releases. But this album is a quintessential title for any blues collection. It gets dirtier with the second song, "Tribute to Muddy," and Johnny Winter would go on to have a few collaborations with Muddy Waters. One of my favorite cuts is "Mean Town Blues," which appears elsewhere on his Woodstock appearance (and not a really good example either) and a few other albums, although his other recorded live performances of this song didn't capture the rawness of the title from this album. And that is what makes this album such a classic; it's rawness, the dirty sound, like it's all one take and there it is, take it or leave it. But after listening to it, you won't want to leave it.

The walls are "Rollin' & Tumblin" with this Winter gem. 27 July 2007
By Craig Fenton - Published on
Format: Audio CD
As the author of the Jefferson Airplane book "Take Me To A Circus Tent" and a former radio disc-jockey, I am often asked to write and or discuss various music supplies and recordings from the 60's and 70's.

You've heard the story before. An artist makes it big and there is a mad scramble to find anything prior to their rise to fame. Often the product may be interesting but isn't at the level the consumer demands. "The Progressive Blues Experiment" is not the typical archival find. Over the years there have been at least ten different labels that have had the rights to this because of the music and not only the name.

Originally recorded in 1967 the ten tracks are a tremendous treat as we travel down a Winter road. Any doubts of the validity of this release are erased the second Muddy Water's "Rollin' & Tumblin" booms from the speakers. The version is one of the finest covers of the tune. The guitar is a sonic blast of energy played with exquisite taste. Johnny penned the next song "Tribute To Muddy." The blues shred anything in its path. A perfect follow up to the opening number. "Bad Luck & Trouble" has Winter's guitar crying the blues. If you don't sincerely pay homage the blues will spit you out like yesterday's supper. Johnny with six string in his hand seems to relish the role. The Dixon/Williamson tune "Help Me" comes at you with volcanic ashes. Nothing is left standing. Chester Burnett's "Forty-Four" is a perfect close to the festivities. Winter plays a classic blues/rock riff with gusto. The power of the band (Remember it was guitar ,bass, and drums) will leave you shell shocked.

Although even the remastered versions don't increase the ten tracks, the original configuration is all you need to appreciate a blues legend. While Johnny's music is normally thought of as part of the Columbia Records catalog, there once was a label called Imperial. You know the story, now enjoy the blues!

Enjoy the music and be well,

THIS is Johnny Winter!!! 9 Aug. 2005
By G. Kier - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Hadn't heard this for many years until recently.

Wow!! What an awesome bluesman JW was and is. If you have liked ANY of his stuff, get this (and the recently released Super Session "Lost" album in which he and Mike Bloomfield reach heights very few dream of.

Winter is as great as Stevie Ray, Clapton, or any of the second generation blues guitarists.

God Bless him!
