Make no mistake, this is not a Johnny Winter tribute album. It's an act of love from his brother Edgar. The recording has not been easy, only the effort and dedication of Edgar Winter has made it possible, this review of the most emblematic songs that Johnny performed throughout his career is taken by Edgar with a halo of gratitude and recognition towards his brother, the wildest guitarist in the history of rock'n'roll. Nobody like Johnny played the blues from the most abrupt side and nobody attacked the most brutal solos on stage like he did. Many of us discovered the blues also through "The Progressive Blues Experiment", we experienced how Chuck Berry could be interpreted with an exuberant radicalism or how it was not true that only the Stones could play their own songs. Dylan also entered in another dimension on Highway 61. Rock guitar hero in the sixties, put Muddy Waters back on the starting line in the seventies, recorded three anthology albums for Alligator Records in the eighties and never stopped performing live until a few weeks before his death in 2014. For this album, Edgar has collected an arsenal of iconic names that have not hesitated to join the project, Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shephard, Keb Mo, Bobby Rush, Billy Gibbons, Derek Trucks, Joe Walsh, Michael McDonald, Ringo Starr, Steve Lukather, Doyle Bramhall II, Warren Haynes, Robben Ford, all of them just enthusiastic about Johnny and excited about this plan. Johnny Winter tribute albums will to come, but "Brother Johnny" is something else.
