Winter's first release after a brief retirement/drying-out period, 1973's STILL ALIVE AND WELL, from the title on down, has the feeling of a major comeback, although Winter really hadn't been gone for very long. Produced by longtime collaborator Rick Derringer, who leads the tight and flashy band--also featuring Todd Rundgren and his cohort Mark "Moogy" Klingman--the album is possibly the most pop-oriented release of Winter's tenure at Columbia. Winter's amiable versions of the Stones' "Silver Train" and "Let It Bleed," along with Dan Hartman's "Can't You Feel It," are among his most radio-friendly work. On the other hand, 1976's classic CAPTURED LIVE is straight-up blues-rock power. Fronting a scorching quartet featuring second guitarist Floyd Radford, bassist Randy Jo Hobbs and powerhouse drummer Richard Hughes, Winter plays compact, expressive solos with just enough flash. The six lengthy tracks feature as much solid ensemble playing as they do solo showboating, quite unusual for a guitar boogie album from the '70s. The set list is heavy on the covers, ranging from a killer rave-up on "Highway 61 Revisited" to a looser, good-humored take on Bobby Womack's oft-covered "It's All Over Now."
