The new album from virtuoso guitarist and Blues pioneer Johnny Winter has been announced. The record Step Back due for release on the 2nd of September 2014, will feature a vast array of musical talent that will inevitably give the record a legendary status. The significance of this record is not only emphasized by the vast array of musical talent, featuring contributions from a multitude of stars within the Blues circuit such as Eric Clapton and Joe Perry.
Step Back is also the Texas Blues Guitarist’s swansong; Winter passed away last month at the age of 70 while on tour in Switzerland, subsequently marking an end of an era. The album is a must have for Blues fans with its expertly executed propulsive 12-bar blues, interspersed with fret-board wizardry and smooth vocals. Paul Nelson labels the new album as “one of Johnny’s greatest performances, both vocally and slide guitar-wise, in years”.
