Johnny Winter

I love Amazon. I am constantly amazed at what I can find there. I just received the Johnny Winter cds I ordered. One of them is the re-mastered and expanded version of "Second Winter". The first disc is the original album plus two un-released tracks.

For this expanded edition it's the second disc that really makes it outstanding. The second disc consists of live cuts from a performance at the Royal Albert Hall in 1970, un-released until this edition. Johnny's brother Edgar was on stage with him and they performed "Frankenstein" well before Edgar recorded it with his band. This is Johnny Winter in his prime and would have been a landmark album had it been released in 1970.
