    ^^^^^Great album:grinthumb

    ...& if you don't have this great album & are thinking about buying it I'd highly recommend getting this Album:

    [​IMG]

    It's a 2 disc set & disc 1 is this S/T Johnny Winter album that Sox just mentioned. The Woodstock CD is an unbelievable show & features Edgar on 3 songs (They do a killer 10 minute version of Tobacco Road similar to the Edgar Winter Roadwork album but I like this version better). You can't go wrong with 2 albums here in one package.

    I really like Johnny's band w/Tommy Shannon & Uncle John Turner but he was convinced by management that he needed a different backing band which is when he was hooked up with the McCoys which eventually became Johnny Winter AND whom I also liked a lot. Management felt in order for him to make it he had to be more hard rock

    I don't have any Johnny Winter albums in the collection...:peek

    I can't explain why, I know he is a legend and respected in the blues guitar fraternity but I am not a huge blues guitarist fan generally speaking.

    However given the brain trust of knowledgeable fans in here, if you can come to consensus on his absolutely, positively, head and shoulders best record he ever made, then I will check it out.:D

    I love and own many of his albums but I have to say Captured Live .
    Definitely a must for any hard rock fans collection.

    Magic is a devoted blues guitarist fanatic, but for me I never really got into them over the years.

    I will check around and see if that one is available, thanks for the recommendation DKW.:)

    Johnny plays traditional blues but he also plays a really rip roaring ,electric, gritty edged, hard rocking, lead fest style of hard rock/blues .
    He is a master at both.
