Overview

The live follow-up to 1971's Edgar Winter's White Trash finds the group running through a handful of the tunes from their debut album, as well as rocking things up a bit with "Still Alive and Well" (a track later recorded by Edgar's brother Johnny) and "Back in the U.S.A." One of the most immortal lines for any live rock album has to be "People keep askin' me -- where's your brother?" The introduction of guest artist Johnny Winter by his brother Edgar sets the stage for a rousing rendition of Rick Derringer's "Rock & Roll, Hoochie Koo." The extended version of blues classic "Tobacco Road" is one of the finest moments on this album, which is itself a classic.

I picked up this CD a few years back and I have played it every few months since then. I cannot think of another album with the mix of blues, rock and soul that is on this one - all done well. If you are just into rock, the trilogy of Still Alive and Well, Back in the USA, and Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo on this album is fantastic - each is better than done anywhere else. For those of us who can recall the LP, the CD sounds great and true.

Edgar Winter..a true blues/rock genius of our time. A brilliant songwriter,vocalist,instrumentalist(several instruments), and band leader. A huge added bonus here is the inclusion of Jerry La Croix on record. He is one of the most powerfully soulful musicians I've ever seen ''live''. Everything about this session is top notch!! Also, buy any Jerry La Croix solo efforts you can find...

Johnny + Edgar + trash = Rocknroll baby! You can't go wrong with some Rick Derringer and folks playin' some 70's guitar driven rocknroll! I have it on vinyl and it rocks! The cd should sound the same and rock even harder!!! Tobacco road baby!!!

If the pop groups you've been listening to have caused you to forget what REAL Rock N Roll sounds like, pick up this CD and start smiling again.
