Mississippi Blues

Johnny Winter

Roots of Winter

Johnny Winter (guitar & vocals) performs the delta blues classic “Mississippi Blues” with the unmistakable influence and borrowed verse of Robert Johnson.

Johnny Winter’s recording career began with the release of his band Johnny and the Jammers “School Day Blues” on a small Houston label when he was only fifteen. Able to see performances by legendary blues artists like Muddy Waters, B.B. King, and Bobby Bland proved a great benefit to his artistic development. Winter would also sometimes sit in with Roy Head and the Traits in Beaumont, Texas early on, appearing on their single “Tramp” backed with “Parchman Farm” in 1967. The following year Johnny Winter released his first album “The Progressive Blues Experiment.”
