JOHNNY WINTER: Live Bootleg Series Vol. 8 (CD)

"Legendary rocker and blues statesman Johnny Winter enthralled audiences the world over. With his unique brand of blues/rock guitar and vocal prowess, Winter’s style was truly unmatched in purity and in star power longevity. While he toured non-stop, it’s no secret that his live performances were legendary. Fortunately for his huge fan base, Johnny had captured a lot of his concerts on tape over the many decades, which proudly leads us to the latest installment of the chart topping Live Bootleg Series.

For Johnny Winter’s Live Bootleg Series Volume 8, the artist surely becomes his instrument in some incredibly guitar shredding live performances. The blues wielding axeman steps out with super extended workouts on concert classics like his masterful version of the Freddie King classic Tore Down, fan favorite Give It Back and a super long jam on the classic Have You Ever Loved A Woman.

Always paying homage to his fellow bluesmen, Johnny also dug far back into his archives for two super rare performances of his favorite Elmore James’ classics Stranger Blues and Done Somebody Wrong. Always an astute master of the blues rock genre, Johnny closes out the album with an incredibly rockin’ interpretation of Chuck Berry’s Roll Over Beethoven.
