Before guitarist Johnny Winter stormed onto the American blues scene in the late 1960s, the lanky, hot-shot Texan cut a number of sides for small labels, and many of those tunes are compiled on this well-selected Fuel 2000 disc. In addition to tearing into originals such as the charmingly youthful "School Day Blues" and the fiery "You'll Be the Death of Me," Winter offers up a number of excellent cover tunes, including Johnny "Guitar" Watson's caddish classic "Gangster of Love." Although it's clear that the renowned six-stringer was just warming up at this early stage in his career, there are enough gems here to make AN INTRODUCTION TO JOHNNY WINTER more than just a diehards-only collection.
