Check out these new and used Johnny Winter vinyl records LPs for sale. Johnny Winter was born in Texas in 1944, and his brother Edgar Winter was born in 1946. These albino brothers took to music at a young age with Johnny focusing on guitar and Edgar learning keyboards and saxophone. Their first band was called Johnny & the Jammers and released the single School Day Blues on Dart records in 1959. They had success with subsequent singles on various labels over the next several years. Winter decided to focus on blues rock in 1968 and put out his first solo record The Progressive Blues Experiment on the Sonobeat label. Larry Sepulvado wrote an article for Rolling Stone magazine that was very flattering to Johnny, calling him the hottest thing in Texas since Janice Joplin. This resulted in a frantic bidding war, and winter ended up signing with CBS records in 1969 with a very large advance $600,000. He continued releasing this high-energy blues rock throughout the 70s, and also produced three award-winning albums from Muddy Waters. Johnny Winter passed away in 2014 in Switzerland.
