All Music Guide
Although his early Columbia albums brought him worldwide stardom, it was this modest little album first released on Imperial before the Columbia sides that first brought Johnny Winter to the attention of guitarheads in America. It's also Winter at the beginning of a long career, playing the blues as if his life depends on it, without applying a glimmer of rock commercialism. The standard classic repertoire here includes "Rollin' and Tumblin'," "I Got Love if You Want It," "Forty-Four," "It's My Own Fault," and "Help Me," with Winter mixing it up with his original Texas trio of Red Turner on drums and Tommy Shannon later of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Double Trouble on bass. A true classic, this is one dirty, dangerous, and ...

A true classic, this is one dirty, dangerous, and visionary album. The set was issued in a sonically screaming 24-bit remastered edition on CD by Capitol in 2005. It contains no bonus tracks, but it leaves the original crummy CD issue in the dust. ~ Cub Koda & Thom Jurek

    Don't get no better 'n this!

    I first heard this collection on an album titled "Austin, Texas" in 1974(I was 15). Being an avid collector of electric blues I have yet to find anything even close to the raw power and energy Johnny kicks out on this set. "Rollin' and Tumblin'", "It's my own fault" And "Black Cat Bone" are the epitome of what hard driving, true to the spirit electric blues is all about. Uncle John Turner and Tommy Shannon exhibit about the best rhythm back-up a guitar player of Johnny's caliber could ask for. This one has got to be one of the best, definitely one for the history books.

    Johnny Winter: Can an albino sing the Blues? Hell Yes!!!

    And play some of the hottest licks you'll ever hear. This album introduced the world to Johnny Winter, who in turn introduced the world to the Blues. This from a skinny albino from Texas; pink eyes and all!! This cat still cooks!! This is a "must have" album for anyone who appreciates the sound of Texas Blues Rock that would influence a young kid named Stevie Ray Vaughn.

    A great blues album

    This is a long-forgotten album that really rocks (if you can get behind a great electric slide/blues guitarist and dobro player with a gravelly voice and a fast, tight, raucus sound). Particularly listen to ''Black Cat Bone'' (I've wanted to learn that one on the guitar, but lost the album). I've seen Johnny three or four times live on stage, and he is as tight in concert as he is in the studio. He has got to be one of the most talented, overlooked, and underrated blues men ever!

    THE GREATEST SLIDE GUITARIST

    YEAH..THIS album was a classic. It was recorded when Johnny was playing at the Vulcan Gas Company in Austin Texas. Duanne Allman told me that he considered Johnny Winter the greatest slide guitarist of all time..and I agree. This album blew us all away...and Winter blew everyone off the stage at this time. I remember Jeff Beck refused to appear on the same bill with Johnny at the old Fillmore East and Bill Graham had to bring in Chuck Berry. This album has stood the test of time and is a must for anyone who digs blues rock fusion.
