Johnny Winter
Voted one of the top 100 guitarists of all time in Rolling Stone Magazine Johnny Winter is a guitar hero without equal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw Blues Guitar Hero 9 Mar 2005
By Simon Loxham VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow! This is my first CD by Johnny Winter.I have 4 albums on vinyl and a tape of the brilliant "Captured Live" album. Bolstered by the re-mastering,extra tracks and bonus "Live in 1970" CD I am so glad I bought this.The sound is awesome for the age of the release (1969)and rather than single out individual tracks,if you love blues rock like Rory or Allmans,Hendrix,etc,you will love this.Actually Johnny has a great voice too but the guitar is fierce.
After I played the studio album I put the bonus live disc on.Pardon me but I defy you not to launch across the room into an air guitar solo when the first track starts.Buy this now!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incomparable Winter 12 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
I completely missed this album, and Johnny Winter for that matter, in the 70s, and now I'm kicking myself. Winter is just the master of blues guitar, but with heavy rock overtones. In addition to well-chosen covers, there are great self-penned tracks too.
The band includes brother Edgar, who has led bands in his own right, and Tommy Shannon on bass, who latter played with Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The (studio) first CD is marginally the stronger of the two, but there's some good live tracks on the second. I'm not a fan of Tobacco Road by anyone, and you probably don't need two versions of Johnny B Goode. But don't let that put you off, the majority of the tracks are oustanding and the weaker ones are excellent by anyone else's standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Sick 27 April 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The main album itself is amazing, I just wanted to point how good the bonus disc is. Johnny is in brilliant form and plays one of the best live blues sets ive ever heard, even better than whats on the album. Amazing

Having seen Johnny Winter live at the 1970 Bath Blues and Folk festival, this CD replaced an old LP so it was great to relive old memories. Great.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Winter of Discontent Here! 10 Dec 2012
By John
Format:Audio CD
This album blew me away in 1970 and 42 years later it still sounds brilliant.
As the 60's ended and the blessed Mr. Hendrix was riding on the crest of a wave of brilliance, JW comes along and throws his Stetson into the ring. Not as big or as commercial (Hendrix - commercial?) but with all the talent and charisma that this young whippersnapper could muster.
As with all great albums all the tracks are different, there are no two tracks the same. Some tracks are stronger than others, but even the weakest track is so damn good. This album is a classic (probably his best) that everyone should own. His solos, particularly on Miss Ann and Hustled Down in Texas are amazing, enjoy.
Oh yeah, the live disc is also a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Electric Guitarist EVER 18 April 2010
Format:MP3 Download
After I had bought Johnny Winter's album "Johnny Winter" I thought things couldn't get better; I was wrong! This was, and still is, the greatest rock guitar album I've ever heard. Jimi Hendrix could do things with a guitar that people thought were impossible but for pure musical ability Winter just gets the nod. The covers of Johnny B. Goods and Highway 61 Revisited are superb but Memory Pain and The Good Love are fantastic. However, he really goes through his paces in Fast Life Rider where he throws down the gauntlet to anyone who may think they can play the electric guitar better. No one can!

As a an oddity the vinyl version was a double album with one side blank!? He explained in the sleeve notes that he wanted the album to be the best it could be and to do this it had to be three sides only. A gimmick or genuine reason? Who knows and to be frank who cares? It a largely undiscovered classic.
