Edgar Winter's White Trash

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Michael B. Smith
Perhaps one of his best-loved albums, Edgar Winter's White Trash combined funk, blues, R&B, and rock & roll to create one of the freshest sounds of the early '70s. Touching on gospel with "Fly Away" and "Save the Planet," Winter and his band cover all the bases, climbing into the lower end of the Top 40 with "Keep Playin' That Rock and Roll." Winter's hauntingly beautiful "Dying to Live," featuring some of his best piano work, serves as a valid anti-war statement, written at the height of the Vietnam era, and the remainder of the record is filled with genuine rock & roll/boogie-woogie/blues that will keep your head bobbing...

    Edgar Winter's First Real Band Creates A Soul-Rock-Funk Masterpiece

    EDGAR WINTER'S WHITE TRASH is a great blend of blues, funk, R&B, rock, and soul from Johnny Winter's brother Edgar. Every member of the band is spotlighted on this CD, whose influences include James Brown, Santana, Stax-Volt, and Johnny Winter himself. The songs range from funky dance songs to the rocker "Keep Playin' That Rock & Roll" to soulful ballads. If you like THEY ONLY COME OUT AT NIGHT or anything by Johnny Winter, you'll want this CD.

    Texas Boogie plus Black Gospel equals White Trash

    Keep Playin' That Rock N Roll is the only radio hit here but the whole album is a party and one not to be missed. One of Edgar's best albums.

    Still rocks after all these years!

    I was listening to this ''album'' back in high school- still sounds great after all this time. Great music, great voice-this was his best cd to me.
