The 16-track Best of Johnny Winter spans the first decade of albino Texas blues guitarist Johnny Winter's career, especially the early (69-73) Columbia albums that built his legend. While some purists have bemoaned his often-manic precision, this collection makes a point of underscoring his impressive range as a musician. The fervent gospel blues of "I'll Drown in My Tears" showcases Winter's vocal stylings (and is one of several tracks featuring brother/frequent sideman Edgar), then segues neatly into the spare, acoustic heat of the dobro and flute rarity "Come On in My Kitchen". But the emphasis is on Winter's showy rock-star turns and the collaborations with his potent band or his original, late-60s power trio. Some of the great songs that feature are on "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo", "Still Alive and Well" and forceful live work-outs of "It's My Own Fault" and "Mean Town Blues". (Even fellow axeman Rick Derringer and his cohorts from the McCoys, of "Hang on Sloopy" fame, make an appearance.) The small, formidable outfit of the trio can't help but emphasise the debt that Stevie Ray Vaughan and many of his musical progeny owe Winter; indeed, Winter's bassist in the trio was none other than Tommy Shannon, who would enjoy another turn in the spotlight a decade later in Vaughan's Double Trouble. If American electric blues is your gospel, this collection should be one of its cornerstones of faith. --Jerry McCulley
