Editorial Reviews

Review

Not many musicians can handle the combination of chunky funkiness and agile lyricism that characterizes Freddy King's style but Winter pulls it off. Winter marries King's style with the rhythms of Muddy Waters' Chicago sound. The effect is both jarring and thrilling. -- Living Blues

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Effort From a Master. March 30, 2001
By RJ
Format:Audio CD
A short while ago, I had the great pleasure of seeing the white wonder perform at the Roxy in Los Angeles. When he was assisted onto the stage, I had some doubt as to whether he would be able to play at all as he appeared to be heavily medicated. However, once the bass player helped adjust his guitar, he played like a true master. The songs he played were not only off of this CD, but were played exceptionally well. After the concert, I went right out and purchased this CD. Several months later, I still have it in my player in regular rotation.
There is no doubt that the man has aged, and coupled with a debilitating form of anxiety which requires medication, has slowed down a tad from his years with aligator records. However, that in no way should distract one from purchasing this CD. Most players would be proud to perform at a level of half the talent of Winter.
Every song on this CD is nothing short of sensational. Ignore the review that pans this CD and buy it today.

Containing no hits but a number of fan favorites and cover songs, "Live In NY '97" was assembled with the assistance of Johnny Winter's fanclub, offering excellent versions of blues and R&B numbers, several instrumentals, and some of Winter's best guitar playing since the early 70s.

Most of these songs, and the instrumental numbers as well, are relatively low key, and that's when Johnny Winter's prowess as a guitar player is most apparent. He barely ever resorts to "shredding" or generic rock n' roll riffing; instead he plays one economical yet soulful solo after another, like on his version of Freddie King's "Hideaway", and a superb slide guitar intro to "The Sky Is Crying".

Those two tracks, along with "The Sun Is Shining" and "Got My Mojo Working", are among the highlights here, but there are really no "lowlights"...Winter's vocals may not have the power of, say Elmore James' or Muddy Waters', but he fares alright, and this album features some of his best blues playing of the 90s. And even the less than original "Johnny Guitar" sounds pretty good, as does the swaggering R&B of "Just A Little Bit".
Only the predictable and repetitive "She Likes To Boogie Real Low" is a let-down; everything else is good, or even great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Johnny Winter - Get connected July 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a terrific album. Great recording, great sound, great song selections (blues classics played by the best - "live"). Johnny's quitar sounds great on this one. There's not a bad track on the thing. Yea, he has slowed down, misses a few notes, sings a little weaker and I if I could play the this CD 7 days a week and not go to work I would. It's not about the notes its about the person and the feeling. I actually feel connected to him spiritually when I listen to this disc. PS. The back-up band ain't to shabby either.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Johnny..... August 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Then this is a killer CD. Johnny and his band simply rip it up here. Johnny shows that he's one of the best on this recording. Sadly, he's one of the "forgotten" guitar greats when it comes to naming some of the best. But players KNOW Johnny, like Rory Gallagher, is one of the players they listen to when wanting to hear the best stuff out there.

I don't know what the negative reviewers here are listening to this on but, the CD thunders through my sound system ( Klipsch ) relentlessly. It never lets up. Johnny was "on" for this recording and I, for one, am thrilled!

If you play guitar, LISTEN to this CD. Learn from one of the great legends. I saw Johnny play twice. I am thankful that I did.

I hope this day never comes but, when Johnny passes on, people will "rediscover" this great performer again. And just like Rory Gallagher, I will say "I've always listened to him!!"

This recording makes me feel like I am in a smoke filled bar with my mouth open in awe the whole time. I'm betting that everyone stayed right in their seats for this whole show.

Thanks Johnny for keeping the blues alive! Go Johnny Go!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Recording! May 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The stories of Johnny Winter's tragedies of life are well documented. But despite battles with heroin addiction and ultimately being dropped from various labels due to low record sales and personality conflicts, Winter has risen from the ashes to produce one of his finest albums in many years. As a tribute to his many fans, Johnny allowed his supporters to request over the internet particular covers that they would like to see performed. The result is Live in NYC '97. The guitar playing is simply outstanding on all tracks and in particular "sen-sa-sun" and "hideaway". Also, you couldn't ask for a better cover of "the sky is crying" in a manner that does justice to the SRV version. I also believe that Johnny's vocals are as good as ever and sound matured in comparison to past CD's rather than "weedy" as described above. This CD is absolutely top notch and a must buy for blues/rock fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Reviewers Have Unfairly Trashed This Album July 20, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Several previous reviewers have trashed this album. One says, for example, that Winter's performance here is not up the quality of Winter's earlier material.

I disagree; I think this a really good live set which is well worth the attention of Johnny Winter fans and anyone who likes electric blues guitar. Winter may have slowed down a bit but he's still a great blues guitarist.

Having said that, I have to admit that I went to a Johnny Winter concert in 2001 and was really disappointed. Apparently Johnny had broken his hip about a year before and had developed some pretty serious health problems following the injury. Winter was really frail at that time. His manager had to help him onto the stage, sit him on a stool and even had to strap his guitar around his neck. It was a really sad sight to see.

That night Winter's health problems really seemed to impede his playing. He was still better than most guitar players but that old Johnny Winter guitar wizardry and those lightning fast runs familiar to long time Winter fans were clearly absent. Like I said earlier, it was really sad to see a great player look and sound so obviously past his prime.

So having seen Johnny Winter in concert at less than his stellar best, I can say that this album, recorded four years before the disappointing Winter concert that I saw in 2001, still has much of the old Johnny Winter brilliance.

If you like top notch electric blues guitar, this CD is still worth a place in your collection.

The recording itself, sonically, is ok but nothing special. If it was, I think I would have enjoyed it more. The performance is lackluster.
