Editorial Reviews

Johnny Winter and his three piece band live on Germany's famous Rockpalast TV show in 1979. Straight up blues like only Johnny can deliver, lean and mean. Johnny blazes through some killer covers like the Rolling Stones' "Jumping Jack Flash" and "Suzie Q."

5.0 out of 5 stars The Texas Guitar Wizard! February 26, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A great chance to see Johnny Winter at peak performance. If you're a fan or have a casual interest in the man and/or this style of music, this is a fantastic set too behold! Good camera angles (considering the era) and the sound is good too. For me, it's a pleasure to see the effortless flow of music that seems to never stop emanating from Johnny's fingers and brain! A great movie to watch, especially after finishing his biography (which I can also recommend!).This was a free viewing since I have Amazon Prime, but the video is now on my Wish List and I will hope to soon add it to my collection. A performance that bears multiple viewings!

4.0 out of 5 stars great blues-rock May 4, 2012

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Johnny's playing is excellent.Excellent tone,smooth fluid playing.Some sf the tunes seem to go on too long and wear out their welcome at the half-way point.Johnny seems frustrated that the audience is not fully embracing his return to blues after being a rock and roll guitar god throughout the seventies.All in all,a worthy performance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not A Bad Winter..... March 8, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to say up front that the quality of the DVD and audio is pretty good for a show from that era. I am a Johnny Winter fan to say the least, but I found this performance just ok. Johnny seemed pumped up for the show, but at the same time disappointed the crowd was not getting into the blues he was playing. As a previous reviewer stated, some of the songs did drag on. On a technical note about the dvd, it seems the chapters didn't line up with the beginnings of songs. For example, I would select next on the remote and it would jump to the middle of a song. Just a small annoyance. I also purchased the cd that was released for this show. Once again an ok performance. Catch it when it's on sale.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go get it now! June 24, 2013
You like the blues? No? Know who Johnny Winter is? No? Well, let's do a deserved introduction to his life and career up to the point of this 1979 concert. Then you'll be saying yes to both questions after you watch this concert.

John Dawson "Johnny" Winter III (born February 23, 1944) is an American blues guitarist, singer, and producer. Best known for his late 1960s and 1970s high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances. In 1988, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and in 2003, he was ranked 74th in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".

Winter caught his biggest break in December 1968, when Mike Bloomfield, whom he met and jammed with in Chicago, invited him to sing and play a song during a Bloomfield and Al Kooper concert at the Fillmore East in New York. As it happened, representatives of Columbia Records (which had released the Top Ten Bloomfield/Kooper Super Session album) were at the concert. Winter played and sang B.B. King's "It's My Own Fault" to loud applause and, within a few days, was signed to reportedly what was then the largest advance in the history of the recording industry-$600,000.

Winter's momentum was throttled when he sank into heroin addiction during the Johnny Winter And days. After he sought treatment for and recovered from the addiction, manager Steve Paul courageously put Winter in front of the music press to discuss the addiction candidly. By 1973, he returned to the music scene with Still Alive and Well, a basic blend between blues and hard rock, whose title track was written by Rick Derringer. The follow-up album, Saints & Sinners, continued the same direction; this was followed by another concert set, Captured Live!

3.0 out of 5 stars Yes and no March 6, 2014

There are some things to like about this video. Good video quality for the seventies, and the first half mostly rocks, tho Johnny's been better. But you should turn it off almost exactly at the midway point, because it goes seriously down hill. And not only musically. In the second half Johnny was not hiding his annoyance with the audience, who were actually quite appreciative, but apparently not enough for him. He must have said some rude things too, because the people up front looked seriously unhappy with him. Apparently they were requesting rock and roll hits, which he took to mean they were philistines who didn't get the blues. He mocked them for wanting "volume, not quality," and he even appeared to be raising his hand and giving the finger toward the end when he waded up to the front rows, and in one of the choruses of the night's last tune, he sang "Jumpin Jack Flash, it's a drag." This despite the fact that overall he was getting a warm reception, even after the tunes past the midway mark, when he played a couple of never-ending,self indulgent and repetitive blues tunes. Sure, it's authentic blues, but 20 minutes of basically one lick over and over? And yet they still applauded enthusiastically (tho not those in the front rows, who looked like they wanted to kill him.) He didn't try to hide his disgust with the audience, and it wasn't very graceful or professional.
