Following the 1970 release of the Texas singer-guitarist's fourth album Johnny Winter And – which featured an earlier version of Rick Derringer's "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo" – six-string god Winter returned with this concert record. Strangely, it featured only one Winter original, the And cut "Mean Town Blues," in favor of covers like "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Great Balls of Fire," "Long Tall Sally," and "Johnny B. Goode." Still, the 40-minute Live delivers on rapid-fire blues and rock jams, many featuring dueling guitar solos from Winter, a big concert draw around this time, and Derringer, all recorded during a handful of shows in New York and Florida. Any fans of the Allman Brothers' At Fillmore East who haven't heard Live are sorely missing out.
