.. I'm in the process of trying to replace my album collection on cd, and then selling off the records . I was so pleased to find this gem had been issued. It's not easy to find everything so I shall record to cd those that I cannot get, but it ain't the same is it ? This one ticks off one more , and is a classic live album to boot. The introduction of Johnny , back from a drug enforced sojourn , always makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up ! Brilliant !!

Peels the paint off the walls 10 Feb. 2006
By George Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard this album in the early 70's in high school. Now I've turned my own kids (21, 20, 16, 16 and 13) onto it. They can't believe that you could once go into a club and hear bands like this LIVE. They only listen to classic stuff I give them now; there's nothing on the radio that remotely comes close to the gut-wrenching energy of great musicians playing live at full throttle. If you only know Edgar Winter from his "Frankenstein" and "Free Ride" days, you've got an eye-opening experience ahead of you. Listen in particular to Edgar's 18 second full-throated stratospheric sustained vocal in Tobacco Road. You could refinish furniture by putting it in front of the speakers with this song turned up. An absolute MUST HAVE CD.

"People keep askin' me - where's your brother?" 22 Nov. 2005
By R. A. Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's truly a shame that more people aren't familiar with this album. Simply put, Roadwork has got to be one of the greatest live albums ever recorded. From the gospel-tinged "Save the Planet" to the raw blues of "Tobacco Road," this recording just grabs you right from the first song and just won't let go. In addition to being an amazing keyboard and saxophone player, Edgar Winter is an incredible vocalist. When you add the incendiary Jerry La Croix, an equally amazing vocalist, the result sends chills down your spine. For you guys who are air guitar specialists, I recommend that you check out Rick Derringer's rendition of Chuck Berry's "Back in the USA." Derringer proves beyond a doubt why he's a legend on the six string. But it's not enough just to have Rick Derringer on the scene. Edgar introduces his brother Johnny for a fiery version of "Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo."There are so many highlights on this recording that it's hard to select just one as a favorite. Certainly one of the highlights is "Tobacco Road." After you've heard Edgar Winter's White Trash work out on this cut, it's just like there's nothing more to be said. If I had to pick just one cut to represent the genius and passion of this album, I'd go with the old rhythm and blues classic "Turn on Your Love Light." Listen as the horns blast out that classic riff and then let Jerry La Croix take you on a trip where the soul of man never dies. This is rock n roll with a vengeance! Or, as Jerry exhorts the crowd at the Apollo: "If you feel like lettin' it out, hot damn, let it out."

WHITE HOT WINTER! 12 Oct. 2005
By Jukebox Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
EDGAR WINTER/WHITE TRASH-ROADWORK: Recorded live at legendary venues the Apollo Theater and the Whiskey a Go-Go, ROADWORK is a raw, blistering, white hot collection of rock/R&B/jazz/gospel barnburners as only the horn-heavy Edgar Winter's White Trash could administer it. Sax/keys soulman Winter trades screamin' call and response with co-vocalist Jerry La Croix, while ace axeman Rick Derringer conjures up riff after righteous riff. Unbelievably, the party gets even better when Edgar utters the immortal line, "People keep askin' me...where's your brother?" That signals the entrance of Johnny Winter, the whitest man to ever play the blooze, and a ballsy rip through ROCK AND ROLL HOOCHIE KOO. Other tone-kool covers include a particularly maniacal BACK IN THE USA, on which Derringer erases umpteen other versions from memory with the flick of a pick, and Jerry La Croix out-Otis-ing Otis Redding himself on the frantic CAN'T TURN YOU LOOSE. But the real wopper-bopper-show-stopper is Edgar's 17 minute scat-fest annihilation of TOBACCO ROAD, a sweat-soaked showpiece from his early days working in Johnny's band. The highlights are rewarding and constant on ROADWORK...the only time the fun stops is during the the brief spaces between tracks!

The Winters brothers are "Still Alive and Well" on this CD! 23 Aug. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is live Rock and Roll at it's finest! Edgar Winter at the keyboard, Rick Derringer on guitar, and Jerry LaCroix on saxaphone combine to rattle the walls of the Apollo Theater and the Whiskey A' Go Go on this 1972 Epic collection.
Original recordings start gently with the gospel-flavored "Save the Planet" and then ratchet up through the raucous "Jive, Jive, Jive" before covering Otis Redding/Steve Cropper's "I Can't Turn You Loose."
All of this music is tasty and lively. Tracks five, six, and seven, though, anchor this album for me. After a wild rendition of Chuck Berry's "Back in the USA," Edgar introduces his brother, Johnny, to scorch through a little "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo." But buckle up after that for the sparkling "Tobacco Road." Nothing beats opening the sunroof and cranking the volume on a hot summer night to listen to the amazing twists and turns of these multi-talented, full-of-life musicians.
"Do Yourself a Favor" and give this CD a ride.

Terrific album from an all too short-lived band 9 May 2001
By John W. Butler, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gospel, soul, r&b, jazz, blues, rock and roll - this record features it all. A live experience not too be missed, it showcases many fine musicians, whether it's Jerry LaCroix enticing the Apollo audience to dance, or Edgar Winter's banshee screams, or Rick Derringer's guitar playing, or Jon Smith's brilliant saxophone leading the horn section's punchy arrangements - this record has everything. Starting strong with Jerry's "Save the Planet", it keeps the tempo up with his self-penned "Jive, Jive, Jive", and continues with Jerry offering a rousing vocal on "I Can't Turn You Loose". Rick Derringer comes in for a rocking "Still Alive and Well" and "Back in the U.S.A.". Johnny Winter does a turn with Rick's "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo", and brother Edgar arrests everyone with an incredible 17-minute "Tobacco Road". The last three cuts were recorded at New York's Apollo, where these guys show they can hold their own. Edgar gets funky with "Cool Fool" and "Do Yourself a Favor". Jerry wraps it all up with a get-down version of "Turn on Your Lovelight". This is a simply excellent album well deserving of its platinum sales status. If we could only get a complete concert's worth!
