Movie Reviews

"This video will demonstrate how great a guitarist Johnny Winter is. The quality of the film could have been better, but I guess the original footage was fair. The video quality is great from the point of Mad Dog to the last song from Spain. Then Highway 61 is on a low side. There was a sound problem from the get go at MSG. There is no player dead or alive who could play like Johnny. His long jams never get played out. Notes, cords are pure,clear and fluent. His guitar does the talking. The best blues player ever. Sit down, and enjoy the the show. If you don't agree with my assessment of the greatness of JW'S playing, well then maybe I should keep listening to others or should I say looking for others, but I covered everyone already.....Enjoy"
I share the opinion of others here.

"I received the Johnny Winter DVD today. I share the opinion of others here that have reviewed this DVD. The sound quailty Is not up to snuff. It was mixed to sterio obviously from an old VHS format. You can hear the hiss at times. Also the video quality is lacking in a few of the songs. The DVD is made up of different concerts culled together to form this DVD, with a little biographical material thrown in. All critisims aside, If your a die hard Johnny Winter fan like I am and most of the others that reviewed this DVD seem to be, then you will love this DVD. It's a pretty good retrospective. Johnny seemed to be in a Trio format for most of the songs. I would have loved to see him perform with Rick Derringer as I did in person back in the 70s. Most of the performances are really inspired in spite of the video and audio quality.I hope Johnny decides to make another DVD with his current band. He still performs! and that they mix it to 5.1 or better yet DTS. I knock off a point for the sound and picture quality but It's still a great DVD to have in your collection."
It's All About The Music

"Yes, some video clips leave something to be desired in VIDEO quality (what do you want, they're vintage clips!!!!!), but if you want some of the best guitar work on the planet to tear your head off, this is IT. Especially if you are a guitarist, this is a MUST SEE. His vocals are in top form, too!(for all you video prima donnas, gimme a break... it's not that bad). Too bad he won't be recognized as the master he is until he's dead."
Awesome History

"I love the variety and the history of one of the truly greatest blues guitarists of all time. I love the way this show is layed out and how the old recordings are injected between newer recordings. If you just remotely like Johnny Winter's music and style, this is a good DVD, but if you love his music and style, then this is a must have."
