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."

Customer Reviews

Now as far as picture and audio quality goes, you get a mixed bag.
William D Wolford
The last song, Jumping Jack Flash, is powerful and gives Johnny a chance to mock the crowd's yearning for rock star guitar heroism.
Mark
At that time most kids my age believed anyone over the age of 30 should die, and the world would be a better place.

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.

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!

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.

Johnny Winter shreds in this performance, but he also shows how much he loves the blues. A medley of “Stones in My Passway” (Robert Johnson), “Leaving Blues” (Leadbelly) and “Rollin’ and Tumblin" is a wonderful highlight, though the German crowd just can't seem to get into the blues. They want him to shred, loudly. Winter almost single-handedly resurrected the careers of Muddy Waters and James Cotton when he released an album with them doing one of the great, classic blues albums of all time. Waters and Cotton were rediscovered and went on to perform to sold out crowds. When Johnny sits down to play slide, it's like sitting on the porch in Mississippi. He loved the genre and while his fiery rock songs tear up the amps, it's when he plays the blues that you feel as if every note is a respectful yet passionate homage to the great artists of the past. The show's production isn't perfect, the mix not the best, but the performance demonstrates why Winter was one of the great ones. The last song, Jumping Jack Flash, is powerful and gives Johnny a chance to mock the crowd's yearning for rock star guitar heroism. It's a bit sad, perhaps, but a fitting ending for this killer performance.

I don't want to pick a fight with anyone, so don't bother rating my review. I won't be reading it anyway. I'm just about as old as Johnny Winter. We are both old fossils now. When I first saw Johnny on the TV show "Rock Concert", I thought if god plays the guitar, (Now don't get all offended. I used god with a little g.) he must sound like that. He is the reason I fell in love with the blues. Eric Clapton is ok too, I guess. This album is a recording of a show in Germany back in 1974, or was it 1975, oh well it doesn't really matter, and his playing is superb. At that time most kids my age believed anyone over the age of 30 should die, and the world would be a better place. Then I reached 30 myself and changed my mind on that. I'm glad that young people don't talk idiotic like that anymore, and can appreciate a guitar master like Johnny Winter. Now if only I could play the guitar like him.

Johnny Winter - what else would I have to say. A great study in technique and tone. I highly recommend it.
