Johnny Winter's The Masters

A double cd-set released in 1998 on Eagle Records in double slimline jewelcase

CD 1
is an inharmonious mixture of excellent but well-known official tracks from "And" (1,3,4 and 5) and "John Dawson Winter III" (2) albums and non-official boring stuff from the early years (6 to 14). "Be Careful With a Fool" is the best of all these last tracks but is not as good as the fantastic official version.

CD 2
is a compilation of live tracks taken from the following records: "Live at the Texas Opry House" (tracks 1, 2 and 3), "Texas Int. Pop Festival/White Lighting" (tracks 4, 5 and 6) and "Live in Houston 69/Walking by Myself" (tracks 7 and 8) (Eagle Records has apparently close relations with TKO/Magnum company).


CD One:

  1. Rock 'n' Roll Hoochie Koo
  2. Raised On Rock
  3. Prodigal Son
  4. No Time To Live
  5. On The Limb
  6. Road Runner
  7. Leave My Woman Alone
  8. Can't Believe You Wanna Leave
  9. Oh My Darling
  10. Shed So Many Tears (Elton Anderson/Eddie Shuler)
  11. By The Light Of The Silvery Moon
  12. Out Of Sight
  13. Hey Hey Hey
  14. Be Careful With A Fool

CD Two:

  1. Hideaway (1'55)
  2. Somethin' Goin' On Wrong (dust My Broom) (8'05)
  3. Diving Duck Blues (2'06)
  4. You Done Lost Your Good Thing Now/mean Mistreater (12'36)
  5. Look Up (Leland Mississipi Blues) (4'29)
  6. Mean Town Blues (9'28)
  7. Johnny B Goode (3'39)
  8. Ez Rider (5.22

Tracks 1 and 3 are still largely uncomplete and fade out after about 2 mn; Track 6 fades out close to the end of the song; There is always the same cut in the intro of "Johnny B Goode" but the "repair" is less audible than in the "Live in Houston 69" version
