High Quality Pure Analogue 180g Virgin Vinyl LP!
Facing the audience together and live – the two white blues brothers couldn’t
have rocked themselves more authentically and intimately into the hearts of
their fans. But their lovey-dovey style still leaves enough room for a wide
range of all sorts of rock ’n’ roll. With their accustomed power and
originality, the Winters start off with the melodic, minor key "Harlem Shuffle",
which is a far cry from a showy, razzle-dazzle performance thanks to its
musicality. This is followed by a kneading, hectic groove with shimmering sound
coloring ("Soul Man") that gets right under your skin, and then comes the
longed-for, ardent duet "You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling", sung from the heart.
And precisely because the duo never needed to acquiesce to the mainstream, the
Winters serve up tasty musical offerings in-between. The brothers perform with
true fervour: hearty, pumping 12-bar blues ("Baby, Watcha Want Me To Do");
short, dry rock rhythms ("Mercy, Mercy"); and a cheeky, free and cheerful rock
’n’ roll Jailhouse-Tutti-Frutti medley. Whoever gives such a performance has
really pulled it off. The duo virtually embraces the audience and makes them
feel a real part of the event – together and live!
This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from
