The Johnny Winter Story

Johnny Winter Woodstock Experience

Johnny Winter's The Winter Scene

The Woodstock Experience

Because of bad weather and scheduling snafus, Johnny Winter only had the opportunity to perform eight songs at the Woodstock Festival, his set comprised of a couple of original songs and the rest inspired covers, with only "Leland Mississippi Blues" included from the debut album. The band kicks off the festivities with a smokin' version of J.B. Lenoir's "Mama, Talk To Your Daughter," Winter's raw vocals matched by his slash-and-burn guitar. Winter's original "Mean Town Blues" showcases his Texas-bred bottleneck blues guitar style, the sound jumping off the stage and grabbing listeners by the ears.

Brother Edgar Winter joined the band on the Woodstock stage for a rollicking cover of Bo Diddley's "I Can't Stand It," the song's early-rock roots augmented by a sultry R&B groove. The rough-edged, white-trash anthem "Tobacco Road" would become best known as performed by Edgar Winter, and the two brothers crank out a soulful, dirty take of it here, with great staccato vocals, fluid keyboard-bashing, and subtle but powerful slashes of guitar. Winter's cover of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" would become one of his audiences favorites in the years to follow, here it's a runaway freight-train of flying notes, crashing drumbeats, and jackhammer bass lines.

This two CD-set released on the Sony Legacy label in 2009, contains two CD's. Disc 1 is the first Johnny Winter CBS album aka the Black album. Disc 2 are the previously unreleased track of Johnny Winter at the 1969 Woodstock concert.
