Bluesy Riff-Based Hard Rock!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is never mentioned in all of those "top 100" collections in major magazines, but this is what it's ALL about! Only a man with the blues in his veins can turn it into hard rock like this. And there's a couple of good country tracks, bitchin' Stones covers (his version of "Silver Train" is better IMHO), "Too Much Secanol" features Winter on a National Guitar, and his cover of Lucille is funky and nasty. A great bonus inclusion! But what's really about are tracks like "Still Alive And Well", "All Tore Down", and the like. Put it in the car, crank it up, and go rockin' down the highway and discover one of the lost gems of the seventies, and indeed ALL rock albums. You can't do better."
Johnny Winter *IS* rock and roll.

"Johnny Winter's "comeback" album from 1973. Johnny is one of the most underrated guitar players that ever picked up a 6-string. While deeply rooted in the blues, Johnny delivers some rippin' stripped-down rock and roll on this album. Production is held to a very minimum of overdubs, and it's basically Johnny with his bass player and drummer. No effects, no slick production tricks, just good old rock and roll. He's one of those rare guys that can just plug the guitar into and amp and rip it up. In addition to his masterful playing, Johnny serves up some of his patented gritty, soulful vocals.I have worn out two copies of this album, and one or two 8-track copies. This is the fourth time I have bought this, and it's just as fresh as it was in 1973. If you like simple straight forward rock and roll from a master guitarist, this is a mandatory album for your collection."

"Johnny Winter was poised and achieved heavy acclaim at the time of this release and his next "Saints @ Sinners" which also should not be missed for relative tight blues rock so in tune at the time....hailed as "comeback", Indeed, Still Alive and Well is a solid recording and this fine sounding CD featured tight blues from this Powerhouse Trio...An occasional mellotron (Todd Rundgren), piano and flute sweeten out the mix as the Winter band never strays from it's roots covering usual old blues covers, new tunes from the band and the occasional Stones (and bonus Dylan Cover) covers, in this case a really fine reworking of "Silver Train" that was heavily played on FM radio in New York at the time of "Goats Head Soup" while also covering the Stones "Let It Bleed"..
Dylan's 'From A Buick 6" (Highway 61 Revisited)is an added workout,Rick Derringer's "Still Alive And Well" is a kicker and the sweet "Cheap Tequila" and low down accoustic "Too Much Seconal" are the standouts."
