Johnny Winter - Live In Sweden 1987

Category: CD/Video Reviews

Johnny Winter w/ Dr. John

“Live in Sweden 1987”


 Johnny Winter was a career bluesman and he was known for as a master of improvisational jamming.  Toss in the legendary Dr. John on vocals/piano and you have one of the most sensational blues jams of all time!

 This concert was filmed for Broadcast in Sweden and the audio CD has the same material that the DVD does.  Sound wise this release is clear and sharp with every note ringing loud and clear.

 Johnny starts the show off with his band and Dr. John joins a few songs in.  The world lost a blues great when Johnny died a few years back and this dvd/cd set explains why he was such an integral piece of the blues world.  This captures Johnny in his prime and features John Paris on bass.  This performance has been a mainstay in bootleg circles for quite some time and this is the first time that this set has ever been commercially released.
