Woodstock revisited: June 30 will mark the release of a special (and long overdue) piece of music history — Johnny’s complete Woodstock performance. Johnny Winter: The Woodstock Experience is finally seeing the light of day thanks to Legacy Recordings and Woodstock Ventures (www.woodstock.com), which will also release sets from the fabled 1969 festival by Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Santana and Sly & the Family Stone.
Johnny’s release will be a double-disc offering that features the original Johnny Winter album, along with a second disc with his complete Woodstock performance (and seven previously unreleased cuts)! The eco-friendly, all-paper package will be an individually-numbered collector’s edition featuring a 16 x 20” poster of Johnny captured in performance.
Johnny in Europe: Tonight he’ll play a show in Switzerland, then he’ll be off until Thursday (5/21), when he begins a run of nine performances in the U.K. before hitting Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway. For a complete list of Johnny’s current tour dates, click here.
