JOHNNY WINTER Second Winter (Deluxe 1969/2004) w/ Live At Royal Albert Hall 4/17/70 + The Woodstock Experience (1969/2009) w/ Johnny Winter (1969)

Second Winter (1969/2004)
The Woodstock Experience w/ Johnny Winter (1969/2009)
More 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 418f-EcW2JL._SL500_AA280_(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.” Coupled with his remastered 1969 Columbia debut, Johnny Winter, and you’ve got a handy little blast of primetime Winter. We’ve got a bootleg live show from Boston featuring Johnny Winter and Janis Joplin, too (HERE). Amazon’s got Second Winter (Legacy Edition, HERE) and The Woodstock Experience w/ 1969’s Johnny Winter (HERE).

    I remember bringing home the Second Winter double album and, after opening it up, I was shocked to find that there were only 3 sides of music! After many listenings, I said to myself, “Hey! This is really cool!” Fast Life Rider is one of my favorite Winter tracks.

    Thanx so much for this… 2nd Winter brings back memories of my rebellious youth in New Orleans -Johnny played a lot in N.O. back then.
