Overview

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. There are only six tunes here, only one of them under six minutes and the rest ranging from seven to 14 and change. There are absolutely amazing readings of Mose Allison's "Parchman Farm" and Robert Johnson's "Crossroads." Winter's own "Black Cat Bone" opens the set, and it stands tall with the other canonical classics here. Like its predecessor, this volume has some small sound issues, but none to keep the listener from hearing the full force of this guitar attack. Just get this and ask questions later. [A five-track Limited Edition of Live Bootleg Series, Vol. 2, pressed on a 180-gram white vinyl LP, was released in 2015.]
