DERRINGER AND WINTER-FULL ON GUITAR BATTLE!,
This review is from: Live (Audio CD)
This is one helluva live album, never in the history of rock (or what little of it i've heard)have i heard two guitarist fight it out so brilliant. Just listen to the guitars fight it out on the opener 'good morning little schoolgirl' and outdoing the stones on 'jumping jack flash'. Johnny's slide player is to the fore on 'help me' but its the call and answer on 'it's my own fault' that is outstanding. Great cover and pretty good production, only i could of done without the 'rocknroll medley' as good as it is. Now for the beef about this-why no extra tracks? two concerts were recorded, so the tapes must be lying around somewhere or have CBS the idea of doing a 'second winter' and releasing it again somewhere down the line? There are precious few live recordings of And even unofficially-so i think the record buyer deserves more. The other example of this attitude of not giving any extras is with the live James Gang album which could of included more stuf(or even remastered). It really is annoying waiting around for stuff in the vaults to be reissued. This was Johnny at his peak and Derringer is no slouch either. They never bettered this-shame it never lasted long.
