Also available in a 3-pack with JOHNNY WINTER and SECOND WINTER on Columbia (65399). Also available with STILL ALIVE AND WELL on BGO (478). Personnel includes: Johnny Winter, Randy Jo Hobbs, Richard Hughes, Floyd Radford. On the back cover of Captured Live!, Johnny Winter's second live album (following 1971's Live Johnny Winter And), Winter is pictured with his band (second guitarist Floyd Radford, bass player Randy Jo Hobbs, and drummer Richard Hughes) from the back, playing before a giant, open-air sports stadium full of fans.

Otherwise, he plays the standards "Bony Moronie," "It's All Over Now," and "Highway 61 Revisited," as well as songs written for him by his old bandmate Rick Derringer ("Roll with Me") and John Lennon ("Rock & Roll People"). All the songs are basically vehicles for his guitar playing, sometimes performed in unison with Radford. Winter plays fast, filling up measures with torrents of n...
