Johnny Winter's Collaboration With Ben Harper Released

(The Blues) Megaforce Records have released the late Johnny Winter's collaboration with Ben Harper on Can't Hold Out (Talk To Me Baby). It's taken from the icon's posthumous album Step Back, due in September - and the first taster seems to support Winter's assertion that he'd made a record of "aggressive vintage blues."

Speaking months before his death on tour in July, Winter said: "Step Back is to bring it to the people of today who haven't listened to the old music. It's better than anything they'll hear today. If there's good people, other good musicians, people enjoy it. I just love it."

Harper says: "I play the way I play because I couldn't play like Johnny Winter. He was one of the ordained architects who went on to define the blues - not only for generations, but for an entire genre. Johnny was the gospel truth."
