Reading a book on the blues, I came across Johnny Winter, who is regarded as one of the greatest slide guitar players that has ever lived. Never having heard him before, I bought a copy of this CD on the strength of that comment. Awesome is the best word to describe Johnny's playing, whether on electric or acoustic guitar, and this album shows him at his best. I cant even begin to dream of being able to play guitar like he does on "Dallas", an awesome example of slide on his steel National. How many fingers does this man have? Vocals is not Johnny's strongest suit, and may be an acquired taste, but his guitar playing outweighs this flaw. Being first released in the late 60s on vinyl, the only down side is the comparatively short playing time (45 mins or so).

Texas blues-rocker Johnny Winter recorded perhaps the "purest" blues album of his career back in 1969 with this self-titled set of songs.
He is backed by some very authentic blues stars, legendary composer/arranger/bass player Willie Dixon among them, and harp duties is handled by none other than "Big" Walter Horton. Also, some of the bass playing is handled by none other than a very young Tommy Shannon - later of Stevie Ray Vaughan's backing band Double Trouble.
What you think of this will probably depend a little bit on how you feel about Johnny Winter's "strangled" vocal style...he's not as bad as Black Oak Arkansas' Jim Dandy Mangrum, but he is certainly not a smooth singer either.
The music, however, is great, particularly the acoustic "Dallas" and "When You Got A Good Friend", which showcases Winter's masterful slide playing, the ballad "I'll Drown In My Own Tears", the groovy, electric "Mean Mistreater", and Winter's take on B.B. King's "Be Careful With A Fool".

Sometimes when I hear an album that I first heard as a teenager (many, many years ago in my case) and raved about, I find myself cringing and wondering what on earth I was thinking way back then. I bought 'Johnny Winter' way back in 1969, when it was first released. There was no very good reason for the purchase other than that the album was in the 'Blues' rack and the guy on the cover looked 'interesting'. It was the first time I had heard slide guitar played blues-style (although Hawaiian guitar was quite popular then), and it 'blew my mind', to use the parlance of the era; Johnny Winter's exuberant guitar and rasping voice brought joy into my world.

Just recently I found a song from the album, 'Good Morning Little Schoolgirl' was going through my head, I don't know why, I hadn't heard the song for decades. It kept coming back until I decided that I needed to hear that album again, so it was off to the Amazon website to find Johnny Winter. I recognised the album cover immediately - a simple three-quarter portrait, backlit white hair against a black background - and put in my order.

The CD arrived a few days later. Here goes, would this be a cringe-maker or a classic? In fact I found the album even better than remembered; my musical knowledge now is rather better than it was 40+ years ago, and I could appreciate the artistry and raw talent even more. This really is one of the all time great albums, a treasure from the past.

Genius is used all too often but in Johnny Winter it's only too clear that it's the correct word to use. I bought this album when I was 16 and the opening riff to Be Careful with a Fool still makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. It's electric; if you pardon the pun. It's Blues Guitar at it's best and played by a true master.
