Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This second volume in Johnny Winter's self-produced Live Bootleg Series is in many ways superior to the first. The reason is simple: Winter relies far more on his electrifying -- sometimes just unbelievable -- guitar-slinging interpretation of the blues as it meets hard rock more than re-interpreting rock tunes for the blues.

The last one is key, because here is one master playing the work of another without being overly reverential.
