My first blues album. I bought it on original release on the strength of curiosity, and a review in NME ( and we know how subjective they can be, right kids?).
Seriously though, Johnny Winter truely pays homage to The Blues here, and if you want a starting point in your education, here it is.
Winter, on the surface, appears to be the antithesis of a Blues artist, but it's a measure of his sincerity that you find the great Muddy Waters (Walkin' Thru The Park) joining in. There's a growl (Tired of Tryin'), a heartfelt tremor (TV Mama) to the Winter composed songs that make this a joy. Production values appear to be high; and these show off the range of emotions that The Blues portray.
I believe that this was Winter's first all out Blues album; I may be wrong, but if you're interested enough, go and buy it. It opened me up to The Blues, and thirty-one years later, I'm still listening, seeing, and buying Blues' albums.

"Oh yeah Oh yeah" as Muddy would shout. This is not Texas blues. This is raw, in your face, supercharged high energy urban blues straight out of Chicago. Marvellous!!!. But what can you expect when you have the great maestro Muddy Waters and most of his band powering you along.

It very much reminds me of the classic Otis Rush recordings where Otis Rush is backed by the supercharged Ike Turner band.

So sit back in your favourite armchair; turn your player up loud; close your eyes and take yourself back to the late 1960s Southside Chicago. "Oh yeah"

Really good stuff, raunchy in all the right places, strong guitar work, and sticks to what he does best. I wish Joe Bonamassa could follow the same lead. Great blues man that will be missed.

Very good collection of blues songs with some humour (TV Mama - track 2) from one of the best bluesmen you could find. All 9 tracks are excellent, as to be expected from such a brilliant exponent of the craft.
