Any guitar/blues fan will appreciate this Progressive Blues Experiment remastered for the very first time. Johnny Winter's riffs are raw and dirty on this masterpiece. Tommy Shannon (former member of SRV and double trouble) lays down the bass, while Red Turner lays down the beat. From the very opening song Rollin' and Tumblin' to the very last notes of Forty-Four Johnny Winter shows his pure talent as a blues guitarist. This was the first album that brought Johnny Winter recognition as a guitarist in america. This is a true classic that is HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!

From the opening riffs of "Rollin' and Tumblin'" you know right away that this is a blues album you want to keep. Johnny Winter made his name primarily with blues rock, with his name getting wide recognition through his Columbia releases. But this album is a quintessential title for any blues collection. It gets dirtier with the second song, "Tribute to Muddy," and Johnny Winter would go on to have a few collaborations with Muddy Waters. One of my favorite cuts is "Mean Town Blues," which appears elsewhere on his Woodstock appearance (and not a really good example either) and a few other albums, although his other recorded live performances of this song didn't capture the rawness of the title from this album. And that is what makes this album such a classic; it's rawness, the dirty sound, like it's all one take and there it is, take it or leave it. But after listening to it, you won't want to leave it.

I'm just now delving more in to the blues and this is an excellent cd. Great guitar, bass, throaty singing, blues personified. Excellent remastered sound as well. Get it.

As the author of the Jefferson Airplane book "Take Me To A Circus Tent" and a former radio disc-jockey, I am often asked to write and or discuss various music supplies and recordings from the 60's and 70's.

You've heard the story before. An artist makes it big and there is a mad scramble to find anything prior to their rise to fame. Often the product may be interesting but isn't at the level the consumer demands. "The Progressive Blues Experiment" is not the typical archival find. Over the years there have been at least ten different labels that have had the rights to this because of the music and not only the name.

Originally recorded in 1967 the ten tracks are a tremendous treat as we travel down a Winter road. Any doubts of the validity of this release are erased the second Muddy Water's "Rollin' & Tumblin" booms from the speakers. The version is one of the finest covers of the tune. The guitar is a sonic blast of energy played with exquisite taste. Johnny penned the next song "Tribute To Muddy." The blues shred anything in its path. A perfect follow up to the opening number. "Bad Luck & Trouble" has Winter's guitar crying the blues. If you don't sincerely pay homage the blues will spit you out like yesterday's supper. Johnny with six string in his hand seems to relish the role. The Dixon/Williamson tune "Help Me" comes at you with volcanic ashes. Nothing is left standing. Chester Burnett's "Forty-Four" is a perfect close to the festivities. Winter plays a classic blues/rock riff with gusto. The power of the band (Remember it was guitar ,bass, and drums) will leave you shell shocked.

Although even the remastered versions don't increase the ten tracks, the original configuration is all you need to appreciate a blues legend.

Hadn't heard this for many years until recently.

Wow!! What an awesome bluesman JW was and is. If you have liked ANY of his stuff, get this (and the recently released Super Session "Lost" album in which he and Mike Bloomfield reach heights very few dream of.

Winter is as great as Stevie Ray, Clapton, or any of the second generation blues guitarists.

God Bless him!

Before Winter's early Columbia records brought him fame and fortune, this modest little album came out on Imperial.
The title, "The Progressive Blues Experiment", sounds a little ominous, but there is absolutely nothing "progressive" about this record; Johnny Winter, bassist Tommy Shannon, and drummer John "Red" Turner tear through ten genuine blues tunes without applying so much as a smear of rock commercialism.

The trio lay down a furious "Rollin' And Tumblin'" and an aggressive take on "Mean Town Blues", and if I am to complain a little, Winter's take on "Rollin' And Tumblin'" in particular is parhaps a little bit too furious, sacrificing groove for high-octane propulsion.

But most of what is here is excellent. I'm particularly fond of the two acoustic numbers, "Broke Down Engine" and "Bad Luck And Trouble", genuine Delta blues which feature Winter's National steel guitar, and also see him playing harp and mandolin.
But there is something here for everyone, and Johnny Winter's renditions of B.B. King's slow blues "It's My Own Fault", and Howlin' Wolf's ominous "Forty-Four" are among his best blues covers. His playing is excellent and varied all the way through, and the lean arrangements are virtually perfect.

A very good early effort, and one of Winter's best blues records (right up there with "Nothin' But The Blues", "Johnny Winter", and the phenomenal "White, Hot & Blue").
Definitely recommended.
