Editorial Reviews

1970 album from Columbia by the great blues/rock guitarist Winter with Rick Derringer, Randy Hobbs & Randy Z. Contains all 11 original tracks including the hit 'Rock & Roll, Hoochie Koo', & the original cover art. For over 30 years, Johnny Winter has been a guitar hero without equal. Signing to Columbia records in 1969, Johnny immediately laid out the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues a prime combination for the legions of fans just discovering the blues via the likes of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. Constantly shifting between simple country blues in the vein of Robert Johnson, to all-out electric slide guitar blues-rock, - Johnny has always been one of the most respected singers and guitar players in rock and the clear link between British blues-rock and American Southern rock (a la the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd.) Throughout the '70s and '80s, Johnny was the unofficial torch-bearer for the blues, championing and aiding the careers of his idols like Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker. Sony.

The only Johnny Winter album with no blues tunes, it was cut on a single day. The rapport between Derringer and Winter is incredible! I love the funk of "Ain't That A Kindness", and the soulful vocal on "No Time To Live". But my two favorite tracks are probably "Nothing Left" and "Prodigal Son", two Winter originals that show he could write heavy tunes with the best of them. Some real Hendrix influences on several tracks. A fantastic record, but the CD is not as clear as it should be.

The preceding reviewers have perfectly assembled the essential greatness of this record. Buy it. Buy it now! Johnny Winter is simply one of the best guitarists of all time! I first saw him in 1969 at the Denver Pop Festival...an incredible bonus to my pilgrimage to see Jimi. Johnny was a blues purist yet to be fully amped up which, at 16, I could not yet appreciate. But from a steady diet of Hendrix, supplemented with licks from Cream and morsels from Zappa, I had a pretty good idea of what great guitarists were all about. Johnny Winter had it all.

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.

"And" doesn't sound like the rest of Johnny Winter's blues releases. The album opens with the psychedelic, hard driving "Guess I'll Go Away" which has flanging similar to the Nazz's "Open My Eyes". Things slow down with the Traffic cover "No Time to Live" and "Am I Here?" written by drummer Randy Z (Derringer's brother). I always preferred this version of "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" since it was released first. Derringer's and Winter's guitar styles mesh together in the same way that Duane Allman and Dickey Betts complimented each other. Distortion is present on the original master tapes, but it doesn't ruin the great music on this CD. I recommend the remastered version by Steve Hoffman.

If you love Johnny Winter and love guitar jams you will love this--the sound,however, is not as great as the LP-this should be remastered--hopefully the domestic version will be remastered when it is released. Rick Derringer and Winter go thru some nice guitar battles on this CD--the tunes are great-well written--Funky Music is a 6 minute guitar battle that fades out at the end (why is this? Should have kept going)I saw Johnny Winter And at the Fillmore when this LP came out-it was great-2 hr set -2 sets-my ears were wrecked-could hardly hear for two days after---so loud---GET THIS CD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After not hearing this album since my days in high school i was looking forward to checking it out once again. Much to my surprise i was shocked at the crummy sound quality on this disc. The drums and bass are mixed down too low and there seems to be a continual hiss or "scratchy" sound thru out the cd. At first i had thought it was put out by some other independent label other than Columbia but upon inspection the disc does say "Columbia" on it so...why the crummy sound? It also stated that the cd was an "import" so maybe that had something to do with it. This cd does have its moments however with such great songs as "Prodigal Son","On the Limb" and of course "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo" plus the twin guitars of both Johnny Winter and Rick Derringer. I can only hope that Columbia will put this back out one day with the proper re-mastered sound it deserves.But for now,be forewarned about the lousy sound on this one.

This 1993 version is absolutely one of the worst sounding "remasters" I've ever heard! And I've heard TONS of them. STAY AWAY until they either make more of the 2010 remastered editions or finally give us a proper Legacy edition that's done right with all the extras.

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!

Just can't believe that this recording is now over 37 yrs old! At the time of this record Jimi Hendrix hadn't been long dead. People were looking for a suitable guitarist to fill the void. Johnny Winter was the man for the job! From start to finish this recording is full of blistering, lightning fast guitar work. I remember when the single Rock 'n'roll Hootchie Koo got released in England. I was around 13 yrs old and the song blew me away.I had never heard such an attack displayed on six strings and this experience of mine has never been repeated since. I rushed out and bought the l.p. within days of hearing the single. At that same time Johnny Winter was on a tour of England. I had to see him live. When I play the c.d today it still sounds inspirational. True to say that this not a pure blues c.d as such, but the overall tone of the songs are still very blues based. 'Prodigal Son' and 'Look Up' for instance are essentially 12 bar blues songs given a rock feel. Johnnys voice is superb, especially on the Stevie Winwood poignant ballad No Time To Live. Its an extremely emotional song and fittingly hints at Winters frail health profile at the time. 'Nothing Left' is almost a tune that could've been written by Hendrix. The guitar solo is truly magnificent, similar to the solo on 'Guess I'll Go Away' psychedelically phased.
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.
