Image of Edgar Winter


Although he's often skirted the edges of blues music, at heart, saxophonist, keyboardist and composer Edgar Winter is a blues musician. Raised in Beaumont, TX, the younger brother of ukulele player and guitarist Johnny Winter, Edgar Winter has always pushed himself in new directions, synthesizing the rock, blues and jazz melodies he hears in his head. As a consequence, his fan base may not ... Read more in Amazon's Edgar Winter Store

Extraordinary: this is the band that spawned Ronnie Montrose, Rick Derringer and Dan Hartman. And then there's the extraordinary Edgar Winter himself, younger brother of bluesman Johnny, and also an albino.
The single of the classic jazz/rock track 'Frankenstein' made it to the top of the US charts in 73, but it was pallid in comparison to the LP version here. The Winter Group played the tune for British TV at the time -- on the 'Old Grey Whistle Test' -- and it was a virtuoso, multi-instrumental performance, with Winter dashing between saxophone, timbales and ARP synth.
The two other great reasons for buying this album are the well-crafted 'Undercover Man' and 'Rock'N'Roll Boogie Woogie Blues'. The guitar work throughout this album is superb, but with both Montrose and Derringer present, what else could you expect?

5.0 out of 5 stars THE HOTTEST WINTER ON RECORD October 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
THE EDGAR WINTER GROUP-THEY ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT: The Edgar Winter Group amounted to a "supergroup", even though no one knew it at the time. Multi-instrumentalist Winter had previously led the horn-accentuated RNB outfit White Trash, notably on the concert jamfest ROADWORK. Guitarist Ronnie Montrose was soon to form popular hard rock act Montrose with future star Sammy Hagar. Producer/axeman/former McCoys member Rick Derringer had also tenured with both Edgar and Johnny Winter in various bands. Bassist/co-lead vocalist Dan Hartman went on to enjoy solo smashes INSTANT REPLAY and I CAN DREAM ABOUT YOU, as well as creating James Brown's 80s comeback LIVING IN AMERICA. With all that talent in one lineup, it's hardly a shock that THEY ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT netted the catchy cult classic HANGIN' AROUND...slick blue eyed soul smash FREE RIDE, sung and composed by Hartman...and the million selling monster instumental hit FRANKENSTEIN, so christened due to its much edited/"stitched together" properties. These genre-hoppin' cats also knew their way around a Latin-tinged tune like ALTA MIRA, the country twang of ROUND AND ROUND, and rock and roll boogie woogie blues, naming one ditty exactly that. Winter's soulful blooze-on-fire wail of a voice, searing sax, and inventive, visceral, synth riffs fused smartly with Hartman's pop sensibilities and Rick and Ronnie's guitar hero antics, making NIGHT nearly impossible to top. None of them, alone or together, ever did.

4.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- Younger Winter's pop coming-out August 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Edgar Winter's fourth solo album, originally released in 1972, turned in a more pop-crafted direction than the blues/R&B work of his releases with White Trash. No doubt having Dan Hartman in the band, playing bass and writing songs (not to mention Rick Derringer producing), helped edge Winter along, but it's both Hartman and Winters' songs that climbed the charts. Winter's instrumental synthesizer rocker "Frankenstein" drew the most attention, but Hartman's rock-funk "Free Ride" added the punctuation mark.

This is a fine summer album, with enough energy in the guitars to keep it from turning into bubblegum, but enough melody and harmony singing to make it excellent sing-along radio-fare. In addition to the hits, there's the nothing-to-do sunshine harmonies of "Hangin' Around," the South-of-the-border flavored "Alta Mira," the countrified "Round & Round," and the bluesy party-time "We All Had a Real Good Time." Taken together they make a classic early '70s pop-rock album that's held up nicely. 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings.

5.0 out of 5 stars LeSabre Days August 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I was a youngin' in the early 80's, my dad and I would cruise around in our boats--the '77 LeSabre, and the '84 Grand Marquis. I remember him playing me a ton of so-called "stoner rock"; everything from Cream to Steppenwolf to our favourite albino maestro.

The album starts strong with "Hanging Around," gets poppy with "Alta Mira," and by the halfway point, you're ready for "Free Ride," which is probably one of the best rock songs ever. The album cruises on a wave of bluesy rock with a tinge of Southern country, and at the end, it explodes in the intrumental masterpiece known as "Frankenstein."

I remember the look of absolute glee when my dad first played that song for me, and saw my jaw drop as the feedback made otheworldly beeps and wops at this glorious bridge, till the electrics would kick back in and rock you to a conclusion that is worthy of not only the best of "stoner rock," but transcends genres, reminds you of the best rock operas of everybody from Bowie to Spacehog, and just jams you home with a growling, howling lick that would make Ozzy Osbourne stutter "that's the most bloody f****ing amazing album ever, Sharon," even today.

This is a masterpiece. It has some flaws and lulls, no doubt, but this is 70's rock at its very, very best, too.

Pick it up.

Get over yourself and your worries about technical or lyrical perfection or historical impact.

And just get caught up in it all and rock out, man, rock out. Because nobody does it better than The Edgar Winter Group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkable! Exciting and Yet Oddly Charming July 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I had really ever only known about Edgar Winter from their occasional spots on classic rock radio, with their tunes Frankenstein and Free Ride, never really thinking about what other type of music they made and shrugged them off as no more than a one-hit wonder.

But one I picked up the album about six months back and have listened to it probably fifty times through. It is very hard for myself to start playing it and switch to something out on my playlist without listening to it in its entirety. While none of the songs in my mind (except for Frankenstein) truly stick out (which is possibly why it is not more well known,) the album gels together as a whole so well that few albums match it in terms of pure consistency.

While many of the songs seem simple in appearance, the instrumentation, the dynamics, and the full-blown singing of the more uptempo songs give a level of sophistication, yet remarkable, fun sound to each and every song, all the while staying unique from every other. Added to this, is the even more surprising fact that the two love songs, Round and Round, and Autumn, are two of the most beautiful songs to ever come out of a rock album, let alone a hard rock one.

Hanging Around is one of the best openers one could ever hope to have for an album, infectious, fun, spirited, truly awesome.

When It Comes is possibly the raunchiest sounding Edgar ever sounded (if that's really him singing, I'm not really sure since it sounds as if there are nine different voices singing each of the songs with lyrics), other great, fun sounding song.

Alta Mira is very quirky, yet charming song that you can't help but sing along to. Has an almost Jamaician sound that makes it all the more infectious.
