180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso With Kevin Gray From Original Columbia Records Tapes! Pressed at RTI!

In 1969, with several albums already under his belt in a short time like The Progressive Blues Experiment (FRMLP1243), Johnny Winter headed down south to Nashville and recorded what many believe to be one of his finest albums to date Second Winter.

Second Winter features the original line up of Johnny Winter (vocals/guitars) Edgar Winter (keys and saxophone), Tommy Shannon (bass) and Uncle John Turner (drums). This power quartet laid down some of the finest rock and roll and blues performances ever caught in a studio setting, as well as forever etching the name superstar to Johnny Winter’s career.

Always an avid audiophile and record collector himself, during the original recording sessions, Johnny believed that all the tracks would sound better if spread out over an extra side, instead of the traditional two sided LP, therefore creating the infamous and probably first three sided rock album in history! He summed it up perfectly “We also really liked everything we’d done and didn’t want to leave any of the songs out. We couldn’t honestly give you more, and we didn’t want to give you less, so here is exactly what we did in Nashville - no more and no less.”

It’s no secret that Friday Music has been championing this acclaimed world class artist for years now with his own authorized and top blues charting Live Bootleg Series projects, as well as classic vinyl re-releases from the Columbia and Capitol Records vaults, it is now with great pleasure to announce the continuing Johnny Winter 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with his phenomenal earth shaking Second Winter album.

Mastered from the original Columbia Records tapes by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray at RTI, this incredible limited edition album comes full circle now in its first time audiophile vinyl domain release.

All his greatest hits are here like Johnny B. Goode, Miss Ann, Fast Life Rider and of course his classic interpretation of Bob Dylan’s scorching Highway 61 Revisited.

A visionary always with each and every one of his releases, Johnny Winter put his all into this album which showed an appreciation to his rock and roll heroes like Chuck Berry and Little Richard, his contemporaries like Bob Dylan, while also being a cultural icon in the psychedelic era solely with his Texan slide and unparalleled blues playing, an unforgettable rock voice, and a fan base that just keeps growing every day.

Fellow legend and brother Edgar Winter and the rest of the band truly excel throughout this entire album as well, on tunes sweltering blues workouts like Memory Pain, I Hate Everybody and the incredible jam Hustled Down In Texas.

Johnny Winter’s Second Winter is the gift that just keeps on ROCKIN’! Now in its first time HQ vinyl release, Friday Music continues the Johnny Winter legacy even further with this incredible one of kind event. For a very limited run, we’ve also included the long out of print original gatefold album cover designed by Tony Lane, as well as the fine photography of Richard Avedon.
