Johnny Winter with Dr. John: Live in Sweden 1987

Here is a short but sweet live set recorded for Swedish TV in 1987 with the late blues guitar great Johnny Winter and his band, joined on piano & lead vocals on a few tracks by none other than the legendary Dr. John. Also available on DVD, this is the audio only version of this concert, and shows Winter in very fine form, unleashing a torrent of white hot blues rock guitar on the opening barnburner "Sound the Bell", and it doesn't relent all through the killer cover of the Rolling Stones classic cut "Jumpin' Jack Flash". In between, you have the lengthy, groove laden "Don't Take Advantage of Me", another vehicle for some sizzling lead guitar, the slide guitar workout of "Mojo Boogie", the soulful Dr. John led "You Lie Too Much", old school blues favorite "Sugar Sweet", and the stinging guitar/piano passion of "Love Life & Money". The latter offers some emotional vocals from Dr. John and more of those sensational blues rock tones from the master Winter, his lead guitar dripping with chorus effects and slicing hard through the mix. Bassist John Paris and drummer Tom Compton also do a fine job throughout the set, adding plenty of rock solid rhythms and occasional solo spots.

At just under an hour, Live in Sweden 1987 is a scorching live set that you'll wish was longer. Johnny Winter was such a monster talent in his prime, and like all the great musicians we've lost in recent years, he's greatly missed. Check out this killer live document of him still kicking ass in the late '80s.
