Johnny Winter
Voted one of the top 100 guitarists of all time in Rolling Stone Magazine Johnny Winter is a guitar hero without equal. Signing with Columbia Records in 1969, he immediately laid out the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues with a powerful combination of authentic Texas funk and his own high energy interpretation for the legions of fans just discovering the blues via ...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Johnny's best.... March 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
No one can ever accuse Johnny Winter of being dull. Since the late sixties, Johnny's been blowing away rock and blues audiences with his growling voice and flamboyant guitar playing. An albino with an impressive mane of shoulder length white hair, Johnny Winter brings new meaning to the term "White Blues." In addition to his considerable musical gifts, Johnny Winter has always had a distinctive sense of style. Back in the seventies he was fond of capes and outrageous bell-bottoms. In the eighties and nineties, he began favoring black sleeveless shirts that showed off his extensive tattoo collection; some publicity shots showed him shirtless, revealing the huge multicolored dragon's head tattooed on his chest. Guitar slingers come and go, but Johnny Winter has established himself as an unforgettable persona in the annals of blues and rock music.
Like his music and stage persona, Johnny Winter's career has also been anything but nondescript. Believing they had discovered rock and roll's next guitar-god, Columbia Records offered Johnny a record-breaking advance back in 1969. Johnny and his band went from sleeping on floors to living in mansions virtually over night. Unfortunately, the rock and roll lifestyle took its toll on Johnny Winter; in the early seventies he was hospitalized due to a combination of substance abuse and clinical depression. After cleaning up his act, Johnny released the aptly titled "Still Alive and Well" and continued to play rock and roll throughout the mid seventies. In the late seventies, Johnny returned to his blues roots by teaming up with his idol Muddy Waters. Winter produced and played on such landmark Muddy Waters albums as "Hard Again" and "I'm Ready.

5.0 out of 5 stars JOHNNY IS KING!!! August 22, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Of the 3 Alligator releases this is the best one in my opinion. It has everything. Slow blues, fast blues, acoustic blues, rockin electric blues, overall just a good selection of songs on this album. The title track is one of the most intense slow blues I've ever heard, the ABSOLUTE best version of that song ever recorded!! Mojo Boogie shows why Johnny is considered one of the best slide players ever. If you never heard Johnny Winter, and you like blues, then get this and be blown away.

5.0 out of 5 stars rapid fire blues! August 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Everything about this gem from Johnny Winter is utterly superb!
Firstly, the cover is magnificent. It says it ALL. The music contained is beyond comparison, you gain the sense of commoraderie amongst the musicians and they really seem to be enthusiastically involved . Every track is blindingly good.There's an updated version of "Broke & Lonely", a song which he first did way back in the very early '60s. Winters version of Eddie Boyds "Third Degree" is the best version ever done. "Mojo Boogie" blazes from start to finish. Johnny is supported by a tour-de-force band which includes Dr. John on piano. The slow blues songs on here really burn with intensity-- Thankfully by 1984 Johnny had quit using the annoying "phaser'sound that he employed on many of his recordings although he did still use the device on live concerts. The guitar tone for this c.d. is pure and clear.
Some of you may not like extended guitar solos...but not me, especially when it's Johnny Winter. As far as i'm concerned he can make the solos last all day long.
Buy this one. You will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars This little puppy cooks July 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In a seems like never ending swamp of poular music that catches us wading through the Blowfishes and the Matchboxes and tripping on an occassional master such as Eric Clapton it is so very nice to go back and hear a true ole' master such as Johnny. This man is so underrated that it actually brings tears to the eyes. Well, a true bluesman dies unheard of anyway...I guess. I, for one, will never forget how this man can "smoke" a guitar bridge if it is acustic, electric or steel and hold his own with anyone whether dead or alive. It is no wonder that Mr. Winter's dedication to the heart throbbing musicianship that belongs to those married to the blues catapulted a young bassist like Tommy Shannon (plays here) into Double Trouble and bumming around with the late great Stevie Ray. After listening to this recording there will leave little doubt that Johnny Winter can reign supreme with anyone mentioned in the list of "greats". Play on Johnny....

Seasoned Texas bluesman Johnny Winter has really given us blues fans (and JW fans) a real gift with his 1986 album 3rd Degree. This album is pure blues, from start to finish, in various blues styles and settings. Johnny was 42 years old when this album was released, and he sounds as good or better than he ever has.

The first song, Mojo Boogie, is electric slide guitar boogie and sounds perfect. Love, Life And Money is minor key slow blues with Johnny's blazing guitar and world-weary vocals. This stuff is authentic blues, people. Mr. Winter is not just a student of the blues, the man lives it and you can hear the proof right here in these songs. He goes acoustic, playing his National steel guitar (including slide) on Evil On My Mind and Bad Girl Blues, and acoustic blues has never sounded better than this! See See Baby, I'm Good, and Broke And Lonely are all faster uptempo blues, sounding almost like the rock n' roll Johnny used to play in the early 1970s with his band, Johnny Winter And. Shake Your Money Maker features more electric slide guitar. The title track is down and dirty slow blues, and like every other song on this superb album, it is awesome.

This is the real thing from a master bluesman in a variety of settings. Friends like Dr. John stop by to help out, too. If you like the blues, this is Blues 101 with Johnny Winter teaching the course!
