EDGAR WINTER | ROADWORK 2X LP (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL)
The legendary rocker and blues statesman Edgar Winter continues to enthrall audiences the world over. With his unique brand of musical genius and keyboard, sax and vocal prowess, Edgar's style will always be truly unmatched in purity and longevity. While he tours, produces and records non-stop, it's no secret that his live shows have always been top notch and legendary. In 1972, Edgar Winter along with his band White Trash played a series of shows at the famed Apollo Theatre and Academy Of Music in New York City, plus the Whisky A Go-Go in L.A. Luckily, Epic Records captured the prolific event on tape and the amazing album Roadwork was born. For Roadwork, the artist surely becomes a superstar on this mammoth 2 LP set. Featuring rock and soul classics like Chuck Berry's Back In the U.S.A. and Otis Redding's I Can't Turn You Loose, plus tunes from his first two albums like the epic 17 minute version of Tobacco Road, Roadwork proves to be a never ending festival of rock, blues, gospel and R&B earth shattering performances. The band features his friends like guitar hero Rick Derringeras well as power vocalist Jerry LaCroix, and of course his late great brother Johnny Winter brings the house down with his surprise visit on the smash hit Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo. The masterpiece was also a primer for a lot of rockers who for the first time would be treated to the likes of musical pioneers like Bobby "Blue" Bland thanks to the late great Jerry LaCroix's shuddering vocal performance on the album closer Turn On Your Lovelight. Edgar Winter's artistry is no stranger to the Friday Music label, therefore it is with much honor to announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of his classic Edgar Winter's White Trash Roadwork album. For a very short time, this monumental masterwork is being presented on 180 Gram White Vinyl and featuring the original gatefold LP artwork, not seen in years in this format.
