1991s "Let Me In" features thirteen primarily electric songs, a good, sympathetic little band, and guest appearances by harpist Billy Branch and R&B-veteran Dr John. The good doctor plays piano on several tracks, getting off a particularly terrific solo on "Sugaree", and Billy Branch's amplified harp duets with Johnny Winter's gritty slide guitar on the WInter-penned slow blues "If You got a Good Woman", and plays tasteful fills on a fine cover of Jimmy Reed's "Shame Shame Shame".

"Let Me In" is certainly one of Winters' better latter-day efforts. It featuring some magnificent, blazing guitar playing (of course it does), and a number of really good performances, including the energetic opener, "Illustrated Man", the bubbling, funky swagger of "Medicine Man", and the magnificent acoustic title track, a Son House-like slide guitar blues right out of the Delta. Johnny Winter is one of the best white musicians I have ever heard play the acoustic slide guitar, and this song brings back memories of his masterful playing on Muddy Waters' "Hard Again" album.

And the goodies keep coming. The aforementioned "If you Got a Good Woman" channels the late, great Elmore James, Winter plays a smouldering electric solo on the soulful, if uncharacteristic, ballad "Life Is Hard", and he and Mac Rebennack show off their chops on the Dr John-penned blues-rocker "You Lie Too Much". Oh, and don't forget to notice the jazzy throwback "Blue Mood", a slow, smoky number penned by 50s songwriter Jessie Mae Robinson.

This is IMO the greatest album that Johnny Winter has ever recorded. It literally bristles with energy and the musicianship is nothing short of mind-blowing. From racy high-octane rockers to slower, more contemplative pieces this album hits the spot each and every time. There are no awkward moments or tracks that shouldn't be here, it is just stunning. If you want to hear an album of unbelievably powerful, passionate yet thoughtful guitar playing then this is for you. If you want an album with lots of smooth edges and safe playing, this is definitely not for you. I defy anyone to not want to take a breather after hearing "Hey You" or "Sugaree" and the delight that is "Blue Mood" has to be heard to be believed. A great album.

Sometimes an artist locked into a genre like say SOUL or BLUES produces so many albums across a staggeringly long career - they can get overlooked - or even ignored. Winter's "Let Me In" is a case in point. Because the only word to describe this album of non-stop Boogie and Blues is `blistering'.

It starts out fast with "Illustrated Man" (lyrics above) - slows down on occasion to Blues up your living room ("Life Is Hard") - then continues rattling your speakers with fabulous rocking stuff like the 2:43 minutes of "Hey You" until they beg for mercy come the end.

First released on Virgin's Pointblank label imprint in August 1991 on LP, MC and CD (Voiceprint VPB 5) - it's top heavy with covers - but versions that satisfy. There's Robert Parker's "Barefootin'", Rusty Lee's "Sugaree" [written by Marty Robbins], Jimmy Reed's "Shame Shame Shame", Dr. John's "You Lie Too Much" and acoustic blues on Jesse Mae Robinson's "Blue Mood".

The band features the heavy Harmonica warbling of Billy Branch on three - "Hey You", "Shame Shame Shame" and "If You Got A Good Woman" - while Dr. John tinkers the ivories on three others - ""You Lie Too Much", "Barefootin'" and "Life Is Hard".

The menace in "Medicine Man" is fantastic too. But if you really want to hear how good Johnny Winter can be with a sympathetic band backing him - go to YouTube and seek out a video someone has posted of "If You Got A Good Woman" - one of the two originals on here. It features both Ken Saydek (Rounder Records) and Dr. John on piano with Billy Branch on Harmonica and Winter ripping up and down the frets. Holy crap! And Wow!

Bluesman - boogie merchant - call him what you want. Muddy Waters once called him the best Blues Guitarist in the world. That's praise I could live with.

Get this fab little CD in your life folks...

This album is an absolute must for any true blues fan and in my opinion is the best release from master guitarist Johnny Winter. It has a bit of everything that the blues is and should be. For those looking for the perfect introduction to Johnny Winter this album is an excellent place to start and will probably stay in your CD player for some considerable time.

I just love this album. I've had on cassette for YEARS and thought I'd better get it on CD before the tape finally wears out......or breaks!!
