Johnny Winter's Dervish Blues

Johnny Winter Dervish Blues

Tuff Bites TB 94.1007, time 45:49 1975

Sound quality: excellent Soundboard - problably from a Radio Show LP date: late September 1975 in San Bernardino


Comments: Probably the Radio Show that delivered the idea of the "Captured Live" album. "Sweet Papa John" and "Roll with me" are the same versions of the official LP, "Rock and Roll People" and "Boney Moroney" have a slight different mix from the LP. "Highway 61 Revisited" is an "extended play" version. This is the unique Johnny Winter bootleg ( till now) in a card board sleeve ( very beautiful)

Good times (Oct 1994)

Tuff-bites presents a unique piece.
Recorded in superb sound quality 1975, we enjoy a gig loaded with energy. Johnny is playing so fast, that it is difficult to follow it with two ears.

While the live-CD labels permantly release stuff by the same artists, with the exceptional guitarist Johnny Winter Tuff Bites presents a true rarity! Recorded in very best sound quality in 1975 in the USA, we enjoy an energy-loaded, captivating gig of the quartet (I'm nearly sure that the three other musicians are the original McCoys), which serves us with a high-proofed mixture of rock and blues. Johnny plays so fast, that it's hard to follow him with both of your ears - and the songs have lengths of 5 to 13 minutes. From the cover versions it's Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" that stands out, while the original Stones version of "Jumping Jack Flash" can't be reached for eternity, IMO. Not only because there are only so less live-CDs items by Johnny Winter this release deserves special attention. Rock and roll people, roll with it!
