Johnny Winter (1944 - 2014) was, along with Roy Buchanan and Mike Bloomfield, the white blues guitarist who contributed most decisively to the return of this musical genre to its origins during the sixties of the last century. His first album "The Progressive Blues Experiment" (Sonobeat 1968) was not
only one of the most generous and committed blues albums recorded that
 decade by a non African-
American musician but also the discovery of the fastest and most electrifying fingers ever heard. In
1969 he signed a contract with Columbia Records, the label on which he released the next nine al
bums, beginning his approach to a legitimate and unmatched blues-rock, to end the decade with
the releases for the Blue Sky sublabel of three other blues gems from the '70s, "Nothin' But The
Blues (1977)", "White Hot & Blue (1978)"and "Raisin' Cain (1980)". To face the next decade
he joined the Alligator Records family and the trilogy released with the Chicago label that
included the essential "Guitar Slinger (1984)", "Serious Business (1985) and "Third 
Degree" (1986) culminated the work of the Texan musician as the most constructive,
exciting and unsurpassed by any other white blues guitarist.
Before signing with Columbia Records in 1969, Johnny Winter recorded several
singles with producers Ken Ritter and Roy C. Ames. From this material, "The
Johnny Winter Story" was released in 1969 on GRT Records, followed that
same year by "About Blues" on Janus Records. The following year, Janus
released the latest compilation, "Early Times". These recordings became
the definitive collections of the future legend's first works. These
three albums have been compiled in this edition with the 33 tracks

included with the title of "The Johnny Winter Story (The GRT-
Janus Recordings)" and give the opportunity to delve into
the preludes of an artist who became indispensable part

of the story of blues music of the last century.
