JOHNNY WINTER Second Winter (Legacy Edition 2004) + The Woodstock Experience (2009)

Second Winter (1969/2004)
The Woodstock Experience (1969/2009)
More Live Winter

We posted some live Johnny Winter last week and it sparked some discussion about some other live Winter, so here are a couple of great offerings… both with bonus studio albums. The 2CD Legacy Edition of Second Winter, comes with a live Royal Albert Hall gig from April, 1970. A well recorded and rippin’ 72 minute show. The Woodstock Experience, on the other hand, is one of those repackaging opportunities that came with the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock. A number of artists had their complete festival appearances bundled with a studio album from the era, just like this one. What’s cool about Winter’s set is that this is the first time any of his live Woodstock material (save one track) has ever been released. The band line-up features Tommy Shannon & John Turner (who would later become Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Double Trouble), and brother Edgar sits in on organ for some of the show. The All Music Guide calls this performance, “an indispensable entry in Johnny Winter’s catalog.” Couple all that with his remastered 1969 Columbia debut, Johnny Winter, and you’ve got a handy little blast of primetime Winter. We’ve added a little live something in the comments of our previous Winter post, too. Amazon’s got one and the other.
