Johnny Winter .... 1977 (aka 1981?)
Masonic Auditorium, Detroit, Michigan, USA

torrent size: 13 tracks; 47:48 minutes; ~287MB flacs, etc.
Source: AUD> cassette tape, 3rd gen> CDR> (wav) EAC (secure mode)> (flac) Flac Frontend level 6 (align on sector boundaries)
Artwork: none included, but an artwork contribution would be very much appreciated, by all.
Transfer: Francisco Silva (Brasil). Thank You!!

Francisco's comments:
source: fair audience recoding, not for all listeners.
comment: this show is omnipresent out there as an 1981 one, but It's NOT. It's a rare document from the same tour as "walking by myself" cd, with Pat Rush as second guitar and Bobby T. on drums. The songs both recordings share in common have the same structure, as the initial slide solo by Pat on "walking by myself".

JAJ (roryglzep) comment: I supplied the 3rd gen tape as "1981", as I had also received as.


1. intro [prerecorded: "ladies and gentleman, Johnny Winter!", identical as in the most shows in the "rock star era", or like the "Captured Live" era. One more clue to a pre-1978 show]
2. hideaway
3. messin' with the kid
4. bony moronie
5. mother earth [great, 15 minutes long]
6. walking by myself
7. ez rider [cut out after 3 minutes]

Thank you again for all these posts about Johnny Winter. It's the first time I see so many JW bootlegs in a few days ; incredible !
I love the CD "Walking by myself", and especially EZ Rider (Taj Mahal), where the solos by Johnny and Pat Rush are really exciting, and Mother Earth too. On the CD I have from this show, it says it's from 1969 : Ah! Ah!
The setlist here is similar.
What a pity that EZ Rider is cut. I hope I will love all these concerts you and your friends offer us! Thank you, Doc Forrester and Co !!!
