As the late blues rocker toured non-stop, it’s no secret that his live performances are truly legendary. Fortunately for his huge fan base, Johnny captured a lot of his concerts and rare studio sessions on tape over his many decades, which proudly leads us to the second colossal Johnny Winter deluxe set “Remembrance Volume II.” For Johnny Winter’s “Remembrance Volume II”, the sorely missed artist surely shares some incredibly rare guitar shredding live performances. These 3 amazing cd’s feature a large selection of the late artist’s archived recordings from his Billboard Blues charting Live Bootleg Series called Best Of The Boots 2, (Disc 1), the first time cd release of his rare vinyl Live Bootleg Special Edition Volume 2 (Disc 2) and more unreleased treasures from his new series Live Rarities Volume 2 (Disc 3). The blues wielding axman steps out with super-extended workouts on concert classics like his masterful version of Freddie King’s Hideaway, Chuck Berry’s “Roll Over Beethoven”, B. B. King’s “Rock Me Baby” and newly discovered rare performances of John Lee Hooker’s “It Serve You Right To Suffer”, and Johnny Winter’s own classic “Sweet Papa John.” Always paying homage to his fellow bluesmen, Johnny dug far back into his archives for super rare performances of the stellar Muddy Waters’ classic “Gypsy Woman” and the jump blues of Willie Dixon’s “I Got My Brand On You”, a newly discovered workout on Robert Johnson’s blues champion “Come On In My Kitchen” and another unearthed treasure of the Don Robey blues classic “Mother In Law Blues.” .
