1979 . . .
Johnny Winter: The Old Grey Whistle Test: Johnny Winter has been a guitar hero without equal. Signing to Columbia records in 1969 called largest solo artist deal of its time Johnny immediately laid out the blueprint for his fresh take on classic blues a prime combination for the legions of fans just discovering the blues via the likes of Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton. Constantly shifting between simple country blues in the vein of Robert Johnson to all-out electric slide guitar blues-rock Johnny has always been one of the most respected singers and guitar players in rock and the clear link between British blues-rock and American Southern rock (a la the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd.) Throughout the 70s and 80s Johnny was the unofficial torch-bearer for the blues championing and aiding the careers of his idols like Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker.1 Hideaway 2 Messin with the Kid 3 Mississippi Delta Blues 4 Walkin by myself 5 Rock and Roll
