    Johnny Winter- Scorchin' Blues
    Epic/ Legacy Records

    A good compilation of Columbia and Blue Sky Records. Includes a nice live version of Mean Town Blues from the Filmore East.

    I was watching the YouTube video of Johnny playing Mean Town Blues at Woodstock last night. Highly recommended if you haven't seen it in a while.

    I've got that Scorchin' CD.
    Short, but sweet comp. Probably not the most authoritative Winter comp out there, but it's got good flow.
    A lotta goodness to be found in those Sony/Legacy/Roots N Blues CDs, and they can often be had for a song. Heck there's a copy of this one on amazon right now for $1.29.

    This one and Progressive Blues (also titled Austin Texas) are JW at his most soulful.

    Yep

    Johnny Winter- Progressive Blues Experiment
    Capital Records

    Strong album
    I didn't buy this for the longest time because of the album cover in combination with the name made me wonder if it would be a train wreck of an album. I don't like my blues progressive or an experiment.
    Glad I finally did buy it.

    It's surprising how many of my Johnny Winter discs were on the clearance rack (and still have the sticker)
    Win-win for me

    Found this CD sealed at the local thrift.
    Being sealed I searched Youtube to give it a listen.
    I would rather leave it sealed and move it on if I didn't like it.

    Piano Blues.
    Not bad. I need to listen to these tracks on Youtube more to see if they grow on me.
    I prefer the Chicago Electric Guitar Blues sound more.
