Coming March 4: Live Bootleg Series, Vol. 2



The vaults are open: Friday Music continues its series of vintage Johnny Winter live releases with Live Bootleg Series, Vol. 2, which will hit the streets on Tuesday, March 4. Tracks include "Black Cat Bone," "Parchman Farm," "Rock Me Baby," "Mississippi Blues," "Crossroads" and "Red House." Click here to read Goldmine magazine's interview with Johnny about the first release in the series.

On the road: Johnny's next gig is this Friday (Feb. 8) at Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den in Uncasville, Connecticut. He'll enjoy some time off before hitting the west coast for a string of dates starting Feb. 20.

In case you missed it: Johnny was featured on Scandinavian television during his European concert swing last September, during which he played a series of sold-out shows. The YouTube video can be viewed here.

I just "pre-ordered" my copy as well. I CAN'T wait to get this collection of great/rare live material by the Master.

Wow! I was fortunate to see Johnny live in Butte last night. He played to a standing room only crowd at the Silver Dollar Saloon and completely annihilated any notion that he's lost a step.
In fact, I think he's getting better...if that's possible.
I couldn't get over the feeling that I was in the presence of music royalty. His complete mastery of the blues is self evident to anyone who has the good fortune to listen to his live performances.
Thanks to Johnny and his incredible band for giving us Montanans a night we'll remember for many years to come.
