Review

Review Text One of several archival Johnny Winter releases by the boogie-oriented California reissue label Relix Records, 1991's NIGHTRIDER goes one step further than its immediate predecessor, 1990's LONE STAR KIND OF DAY, by focusing almost entirely on Winter's pre-Columbia '60s recordings for a variety of Texas indies. Impossibly young--Winter was about 16 when he cut his very first single, "Night Ride" (included here)--but with undeniable talent, Winter sounds like he's casting about for the style that best suits him on these early recordings.Multiple takes of two songs, the bluesy ballad "Bad News" and the poppier "Careful With a Fool," detail these explorations. Other tracks, like a smoking cover of Mose Allison's "Parchman Farm" and a sassy "Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu," find Winter coming close to the style he'd perfect by the early '70s. The set includes a handful of previously unreleased tracks and makes a nice companion to Sundazed's contemporaneous EASE MY PAIN reissue.
