Johnny Winter Second Winter on 180g Import 2LP from Speakers Corner
New Production featuring 45RPM Versions of "Miss Ann," "Hustled Down In Texas," and "Highway 61 Revisited" on the Fourth Side!
Johnny Winter released the album Second Winter in 1969, a passionate and fervent collection of songs, just a few months after his record debut. Featuring a line-up of Johnny Winter (vocals/guitars) Edgar Winter (keys/saxophone), Tommy Shannon (bass) and Uncle John Turner (drums), this legendary band's steadfast commitment to the blues is apparent in every single note they play, although tender emotions are all the more discernible in hard, rock’n’roll-like outbursts than ever before.
Winter blends his crystal-clear, unmannered guitar playing here with the gravelly charm of his raspy voice to produce a compact sound in which both his own compositions and old favorites ("Johnny B. Goode") are revived. It is quite clear that the white shooting star is on a par with the giants of the blues as far as vocals and guitar playing are concerned.
It is often speculated over as to whether Johnny’s new ideas were simply too numerous for a single LP, or whether the producers thought they were not quite sufficient for a double LP. Whatever the answer, the original was released as a three-sided album, with a blank fourth side!
In order to fill the album with fiery rock ’n’ roll, a new production with the 45 rpm versions of "Miss Ann," "Hustled Down In Texas," and "Highway 61 Revisited" is now included on the fourth side. It goes without saying that alongside the present double LP Winter’s audiophile first release is available from Speakers Corner, too.
