Johnny Winter with Dr. John, Live in Sweden 1987, DVD or CD
John Paris on bass and harmonica and Tom Compton on drums lay down a very solid foundation while Johnny gives us some excellent guitar work as only he could quite do, and those great vocals. Dr. John gives us his inimitable vocals and piano in top form from midway through on.
"Jumpin' Jack Flash" is a highly charged finale, but all the tunes are right in the pocket and bluesy-rocky with plenty of all you might want from both Johnny and the good Doctor.
The sound quality is first-rate and the visuals capture the excitement of the set well.
If you love Johnny, this one is probably a must. And of course Dr. John fans will dig this, too. If you want some up and going blues rock this one is a winner on all counts. It reminds us how much we lost when Johnny left us. Give it a go, for sure.
