"Having been a Johnny Winter fan for the past 15 years, and having seen him several times, this album is a great collection for any Johnny Winter fan. It is not his best work, but a good CD non the less. Since it is a 3-piece band, which Johnny prefers, he makes the most of the songs albiet they are cover tunes. I especially like his version of Bob Dylan's "Like a rolling Stone". and "New York New York". The atmosphere of the album seems to be Johnny just having fun, which as we know is when Johnny plays his best guitar!"

"Johnny Winter has been a favorite of mine since I started learning how to play guitar in the late 1970's and this album has some great guitar work on it. My favorite track has to be Talk is Cheap. It's got a great rhythm section and great guitar work from Winter. There are other noteworthy songs including The Crawl, Sittin' in the Jailhouse & Rollin' Tumblin' but Talk is Cheap has made this one of my top Winter selections for years. It does not equal the Alligator releases but has good energy. Difficult to find in modern formats though."

"I saw these guys back in 1980 when they were touring this album. Johnny was great, and the bass player played bass and harmonica at the same time. What you hear on this album is what they played live."
Always wondered where my vinyl copy went?

"First saw Winter And in 1969 at the Hollywood Palladium. By the time 1985 rolled around, I was up to 14 Winter concerts including the Winter Live! My favorite track is Bon Ton...followed by NY NY. Ran the songs through Audacity to punch up the bottom and middle. Even better still (and yes I'm alive and well) Add this and Enjoy! "
