Johnny Winter released the album Second Winter, a passionate and fervent collection of songs, just a few months after his record debut. This legendary band's steadfast commitment to blues is apparent in every single note they play, although tender emotions are all the more discernible in hard, rock 'n' roll-like outbursts than ever before. Winter blends his crystal-clear, unmannered guitar playing with the gravelly charm of his raspy voice to produce a compact sound in which both his own compositions and old favorites (Johnny B. Goode) are revived. It is quite clear that the white shooting star is on a par with the giants of blues as far as vocals and guitar playing are concerned.

It is often speculated over as to whether Johnny's new ideas were simply too numerous for a single LP, or whether the producers thought they were not quite sufficient for a double LP. Whatever the answer, the original was released as a three-sided album, with a blank fourth side! In order to fill the album with fiery rock 'n' roll, a new production with the 45 RPM versions of "Miss Ann," "Hustled Down In Texas" and "Highway 61 Revisited" is now included on the fourth side.

I have been wanting to buy this album for awhile now and when I heard johnny had died I went ahead and bought it, this is a beautiful pressing, not a single mark on the vinyl at all with nice red Columbia labels like the original, very nice gatefold jacket that shines and the music and sound is outstanding, the only thing that I don't like is the $65.00 price, a little steep I thought but I wanted the best second winter that is available and I think this is it.
