iTunes Review

Johnny Winter was on the comeback trail when he died on July 16, 2014, at age 70. He’d just completed this album: the sequel to 2011’s Roots and the second of four planned collections of early blues and rock songs. The historical box set True to the Blues: The Johnny Winter Story, released earlier in 2014, reminded fans of his legacy. Step Back pairs Winter with contemporaries and fans such as Eric Clapton, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry, Dr. John, Joe Bonamassa, and Brian Setzer among the ranks. Winter sings and plays here with a focus that demonstrates how determined he was to remind folks of his abilities. Tracks such as “Don’t Want No Woman” (with Eric Clapton), “Killing Floor” (with producer/guitarist Paul Nelson), “Sweet Sixteen” (with Joe Bonamassa), and “Long Tall Sally” (in a brutal version with Mountain’s Leslie West) make the case for Winter’s resilience and should send longtime fans back to Winter’s early records to revisit his explosive talents. As producer Paul Nelson says, “He left on a high note.” Indeed.

Customer Reviews

RIP Johnny another six stringer down : (

Johnny will be greatly missed, his fiery slides, leads, Johnny will live on through all of us that have borrowed some part of his music. Many six stringers borrowed some of Johnny influences as Johnny did too!

I will miss you Johnny, look forward to hearing your album, will be tough knowing your gone.
Another six stringer down, bad enough losing JJ Cale last 7/26/13 and now you. Guess God needed some more six stringers for the band.

You never know how long this journey is, so enjoy it much as we can,while we can........

RIP Johnny
God Speed

When Johnny Winter emerged on the national scene in 1969, the hope, particularly in the record business, was that he would become a superstar on the scale of Jimi Hendrix, another blues-based rock guitarist and singer who preceded him by a few years. That never quite happened, but Winter did survive the high expectations of his early admirers to become a mature, respected blues musician with a strong sense of tradition. He was born John Dawson Winter III on February 23, 1944, in Beaumont, Texas,...
