A year later, I saw Johnny Winter And touring on this record at the old KRNT theatre in Des Moines. Unbelievable! As the previous reviewer suggested of the show he saw at the Fillmore: maximum decibels delivering maximum pleasure. Winter and Rick Derringer live was a wonder to behold. I bought this record just before the concert and, over the next year, I listened to it constantly. Still do.
Now, 35 years later, all the great things said before remain true. And the only addition I can make to the insights that my predecessors have made is that the vocal work on this record is a magnificent time capsule of a style of singing unique to rock recordings at the beginning of the '70s. "Am I Here" and, even more so, "Out On A Limb" showcase this style. It is a lost art but anyone who lived through the period knows it as organic when they hear it.
Johnny Winter has made great music all of his professional life and guitar fans know him to be one of the true masters. This record is essential for so many reasons, not the least of which is that you know how he got here from there.
Seriously, you'll be heartbroken if you buy this expecting a good time. Johnny's seminal works deserve much better treatment than this sorry mess!
The last track, 'Funky Music', contains some of the most inventive guitar work ever. It's such a shame the track was faded out because the relentless guitar battle between Winter and Rick Derringer can be heard going into oblivion. Some awesome string bending on this track. There was once Duane Allman & Dicky Betts and there was also Winter & Derringer. Everything about this recording was superb, even the cover art, which when it was an l.p. stood out quite vividly.Read more ›
