    Speaking of Johnny Winter, he had a good sense of humor. That song on 'Nothin' But The Blues', Bladie May, about his knife, is a good example. Another good one is "The Monkey Song" from one of his last records.

    Another humorous song from Johnny (humorous and at the same time, good advice):

    Here is one that is hilarious (though my wife probably would not find the humor in it):

    Re: Give It Back: This also shows how Johnny Winter would "develop" a solo, until it peaked out, over a stretch of maybe three or four choruses. He does this on this song as well.

    This one also shows how Winter "develops" a solo over a time span:

    Of course, you must hear the original Bobby Bland version. Is that Clarence Holloman on guitar?

    Bobby Bland was another of the old masters that Johnny held in high regard. You seem like a big Johnny Winter fan, so I highly recommend you read his biography, Raisin Cain--there's a good album by same title too.

    Bobby "Blue" Bland sang one of my favorite blues songs. I don't know if this is the best blues song . (There are so many.) But it definitely epitomizes the blues by telling how one man could feel so badly by how his woman treated him.

    First meaning his first album? Well, Johnny sort of had two first albums, one he had cut before hitting the big time and his first Columbia album. Both are great albums. The Columbia album of course was heavily promoted, and so was the first to most people, but then the other first album was released by his old manager and cut into the sales figures of the Columbia album. Because his second Columbia album was called "Second Winter," some refer to the first Columbia album as First Winter (though more commonly it is referred to as "The Black Album"). So maybe that is what you mean.



    Columbia album

    Florestan--yes, the first Columbia release. I bought the LP when it first came out. I still have it but it is a little beat up, so I recently purchased the remastered version which adds three tracks.

    I should have also mentioned the Paul Butterfield Blues band, Lonnie Brooks, Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials, J. B. Hutto, the Siegel-Schwall Blues Band, Mighty Joe Young, Dave "Snaker" Ray, Son Seals.....

    It is a long list.
