Johnny Winter And Live Original Reviews from 1971

CBS Germany Press Release 1971:

Es gibt Tausende von Johnny Winter-Fans in unserem Land. Sie alle warten, nach der etwas mißglückten Tournee Anfang Februar dieses Jahres, mit Ungeduld auf seine neue LP. Hier ist sie, und sie wird diejenigen entschädigen, die bei seinen Konzerten nicht ganz auf ihre Kosten kamen. Es sind Live-Aufnahmen aus dem Fillmore East und aus dem Club Pirate's World in Florida. "Johnny Winter And" hat folgende besetzung: Johnny Winter und Rick Derringer, Gesang und Gitarren - Randy Jo Hobbs, Gesang und bass - Caldwell, Schlagzeug. Denen, die noch nicht mit Johnny Winters Lebenslauf vertraut sind, möge die Kurz-Charakteristik nützlich sein, die Ulrich Olshausen in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen veröffentlichte:

Winters Karriere hat manche Ähnlichkeit mit der von Janis Joplin. Auch er stammt aus gesicherten Verhältnissen in Texas, brach ein kurzes College-Studium ab, um als Musiker "on the road" zu gehen, und sang in Bars und Clubs, "was immer die Betrunkenen hören wollten". Wie Janis, gehört er zu den großen weißen Elues-Sängern, die genug Persönlichkeit besitzen, aus dem Blues etwas verwegen Neues zu machen, ohne die Vorbilder und das Genre zu verleugnen. Nach seinem Artikel in der Zeitschrift Rolling Stone", der sich auch mit dem Aussehen des markanten, seidenmähnigen Albinos befasste, baute sich um Winter die Aura eines neuen Superstars auf .

Die Plattenfirma, die ihn nach einem erfolgreichen Konzert im Fillmore East in New York zum Vertragsab-schluß angelte, muß den höchsten Vorschuß bezahlen, der je für einen Debütanten ausgegeben wurde.

1971 CBS Press Release

Jazz Podium Magazine July 1971:

Ist der schwarze Blues etwas anderes geworden, seit es den weißen Blues gibt? Who's got a right to sing the biues? Jeder weiße Bluesmann wird seine Gitarre hinlegen, wenn - sagen wir - T-Bone Walker anmarschiert, Janis Joplin legte einen Kranz nieder an Bessie Smiths Grab, einige Zeit vor ihrer Uberdosis. Sind die Bluespioniere also anerkannt? Sind sie die "gutbezahlten Stars"? Nein. American Folk Blues stirbt, und nicht umsonst: "Thank you ... I have the Blues a lang time ...

Jazz Podium July 1971 Germany
I have many Blues .., right now I have the type of Blues to make you feel kinda happy and gay", sagt Willie Dixon in der Jahrhunderthalle. Die Blues-Baß-Runden, die er gegen Champion Jack Dupree boxt - besonders in "School Day" - sind neben Jacks Gesang und Piano - sein fast romantisches Klavier auf "Sittin and Cryin"' - das Größte des Abends. Und der weiße Blues? Hier kommt er: Johnny Winter, der große Farblose des Blues, ganz und gar blaß und ausgelaugt, wie man sich das weiße Amerika vorstellt. Trifft das zu? Wenn dieses Bild unseres Verbündeten stimmt, dann tut's auch Johnny Winters Blues.

Wollen wir es annehmen, allein schon weil es ihn auf CBS-Records gibt! Texas hat sich den Winter redlich verdient. Die Musik: da erinnert vieles an Haley und Elvis, ich meine "Gefühls"-mäßig, nur ist Winter cooler: wie sensibel werden die Rock 'n'Roller 1990 sein? .lt's My Own Fault" ist das stärkste der hier versammelten musikalischen Selbstbekenntnisse. Das Publikum hat auf beiden Festen etwas zu Pfeifen und Grbhien.
