CD Reviews

Great Effort From a Master.

"A short while ago, I had the great pleasure of seeing the white wonder perform at the Roxy in Los Angeles. When he was assisted onto the stage, I had some doubt as to whether he would be able to play at all as he appeared to be heavily medicated. However, once the bass player helped adjust his guitar, he played like a true master. The songs he played were not only off of this CD, but were played exceptionally well. After the concert, I went right out and purchased this CD. Several months later, I still have it in my player in regular rotation.There is no doubt that the man has aged, and coupled with a debilitating form of anxiety which requires medication, has slowed down a tad from his years with aligator records. However, that in no way should distract one from purchasing this CD. Most players would be proud to perform at a level of half the talent of Winter.Every song on this CD is nothing short of sensational. Ignore the review that pans this CD and buy it today."

"Then this is a killer CD. Johnny and his band simply rip it up here. Johnny shows that he's one of the best on this recording. Sadly, he's one of the "forgotten" guitar greats when it comes to naming some of the best. But players KNOW Johnny, like Rory Gallagher, is one of the players they listen to when wanting to hear the best stuff out there.
I don't know what the negative reviewers here are listening to this on but, the CD thunders through my sound system ( Klipsch ) relentlessly. It never lets up. Johnny was "on" for this recording and I, for one, am thrilled!
If you play guitar, LISTEN to this CD. Learn from one of the great legends. I saw Johnny play twice. I am thankful that I did.
I hope this day never comes but, when Johnny passes on, people will "rediscover" this great performer again. And just like Rory Gallagher, I will say "I've always listened to him!!"
This recording makes me feel like I am in a smoke filled bar with my mouth open in awe the whole time. I'm betting that everyone stayed right in their seats for this whole show.
Thanks Johnny for keeping the blues alive! Go Johnny Go!! :)"
Johnny Winter - Get connected

"This is a terrific album. Great recording, great sound, great song selections (blues classics played by the best - "live"). Johnny's quitar sounds great on this one. There's not a bad track on the thing. Yea, he has slowed down, misses a few notes, sings a little weaker and I if I could play the this CD 7 days a week and not go to work I would. It's not about the notes its about the person and the feeling. I actually feel connected to him spiritually when I listen to this disc. PS. The back-up band ain't to shabby either."
