Winter, Johnny

White, Hot & Blue
First Copy Of This 1978 White Label Promo We Have Had In Stock In Eleven Years. Custom Inner Sleeve. LP Looks Glossy, Unplayed. Mastsred At Sterling Sound. 4½ Stars In All Music Guide. “On White, Hot & Blue, He Is Not Leading Muddy Waters' Band (As On Muddy’s “Hard Again) Yet But He Is Still Playing In A Waters-Like Chicago Blues Mode For The Most Part. This Time, The Backup Band Consists Of His Old Texas Compatriot I.P. Sweat On Bass And Bobby (T) Torello On Drums, Although Pat Ramsey Gets So Much Space For Harmonica Playing (Replacing James Cotton, Who Was On Nothin' But The Blues) That He Practically Deserves Co-Billing On The LP. Winter Is Credited For Three Original Songs, "Slidin' In," "One Step At A Time," And "Nickel Blues," But There Isn't Much Original About Them; They Are Standard Blues Tunes, With "Slidin' In" In 12-Bar Form, "One Step At A Time" In Chicago Style, And "Nickel Blues" An Acoustic Folk-Blues Number. Maybe Winter Wrote Some New Lyrics, But Even Those Sound Mostly Familiar. No Matter. The Spirited Playing Heard On The Waters Albums Carries Over Here. Edgar Winter Sits In On Piano On "Nickel Blues," Doing His Best Pinetop Perkins. Taj Mahal's "E-Z Rider" Is Rendered As A Rolling Stones-Style Rocker, But Otherwise This Is A Blues-Filled Album, And It Retains The Glow Of A Comeback That May Have Been Designed For Muddy Waters, But Has Spilled Over To Johnny Winter, Too.” William Ruhlmann, AMG.
