I saw Johnny Winter in Brockville on September 11, 2010 and was lucky enough to purchase this dvd at the show. Johnny played an excellent show but this review is for the dvd so I'll get to that. First this dvd is an excellent companion to Johnny Winter Live through the seventies. I highly recommend both dvd's. Second, Amazon has the wrong running time. The dvd is actually close to 2 hours long not 60 minutes. The dvd starts out with 4 songs from Massey Hall in Toronto from 1983 including Sweet Papa John and It's all over now which is a show stopper for Johnny to this day. Then there are several songs from a festival in Denmark from 1984 including Johnny's great cover of the stones classic Jumping Jack Flash and Dylan's Highway 61 and Chuck Berry's Johnny B Goode. There is an amusing moment at the end of Johnny B Goode but I won't ruin it for you by revealing what happens. There are other live performances from the Capital Theatre in Passaic New Jersey, Bromma Sweden and Pistoia Italy. The great thing about this dvd is getting a chance on many of the songs to see Johnny's fingers up close playing his guitar. He truly is a master and a living legend. There is also a video from Johnny's Guitar Slinger album and a couple of short interviews from that period. I used to think that all music made in the 1980's sucked but Johhny proves that if you stick with a proven formula like playing the blues then the music was / is timeless. If you like the blues or Johnny Winter then don't hesitate to buy this dvd, it's a lot of fun watching Johnny do what he does best. Long live Johnny 'Big Daddy' Winter. I hope I will be lucky enough to see many more Johnny Winter shows in the future. I give this dvd a 5 star rating.

I really enjoyed the "Live Through the 70's" dvd, and I like this one even more. It has a total running time of 114 minutes. Again, like the 70's DVD, the 80's DVD is a compilation of performances by Johnny Winter.

The performances are as follows:

Canada '83: 1. Unseen Eye 2.Stanger 3.Sweet Papa John 4.It's All Over Now.

Denmark '84: 5.Jumpin Jack Flash 6.Boot Hill 7.Highway 61 8.Johnny B.Goode

NJ '84: 9.Mad Dog 10.When You've Got a Good Friend

NH '84: 11.Lights Out 12.Please Come Home For Chrismas

Alligator Records Promos '84: 13. Don't Take Advantage of Me (Music Video) This is a great video!!! 14. Don't Take Advantage of Me.

Sweden '87: 15. Swedish TV Intro 16. Sound the Bell 17. Mojo Boogie

Italy '88: 18. Early in the Morning 19.Serious as a Heart Attack

Overall, these are some more great Johnny Winter performances.

Unlike many J.W. fans, I like his 80s work best of all. Winter gave up the R&R of the 70s and went back to his roots (and his strong suit) - the blues. Excellent DVD and highly recommended for all Winter fans and blues fans in general. This guy can play like no other.

I was introduced to Johnny Winter's music in the very early 1970's and have been a fan ever since. I own albums of his that were recorded live, but I have never seen him in concert so I was looking forward to seeing this DVD. It contains excerpts from several live concerts recorded across the world in the 1980's when Johnny was really in his prime. The concert video footage is very raw with dismal recording quality. Even worse, the sound quality is mono and some of the worst fidelity I have heard in any recording on 78, LP, CD, mp3, or DVD. Granted, live recording was not great in the 80's but it was not this bad. The video looks like something you would see on a bootleg recording from an old video camera. Winter was a victim of repeated bootleg recordings, and this certainly makes me suspect this is one of them. Think of the lowest quality mp3 recording and then try to envision sound just a little worse and you will get the sense of how bad the audio is on this DVD. It's like something recorded on someone's cellphone, and Winter's guitar sounds like he is playing in a metal barrel. On the disc I received the last song ends abruptly about midway. Everything else on the disc is such poor quality that I honestly don't know if I got a defective disc or if the creator of this collection just made it that way. It is truly pathetic and a sad presentation of recordings from such a brilliant and talented blues guitarist who is one of the best to ever play a guitar.

The song selection on this DVD is very good, and if you can get past the horrid video and sound quality you will see and hear some truly great live guitar playing.

Pretty good selection of concert performances. Was a little disappointed when Johnny walked offstage in the middle of one number but I can't blame him for doing so. That particular audience started throwing things onstage and almost hit him so he walked off. And he had been playing great but he just didn't want to put up with that rude behavior from the audience..

I saw many performances of Johnny Winter through the 80's. They did a great job of capturing his fire on the guitar. Brought back a lot of memories. I wish they had videos like this of his brother as well.
