Johnny Winter's Final Studio Session Video Released

(The Blues) Johnny Winter's final studio session is shown in the video for his version of Son House classic Death Letter. He recorded the track for Step Back, released last month following his death in July at the age of 70. It's one of only two songs on the album that doesn't feature a guest appearance.

Producer and guitarist Paul Nelson tells NPR: "I had one of those moments where you just knew what you were watching was magic and history in the making.

"This was Johnny playing the way he loved most, paying tribute to the past while making the song his own. The track was recorded in one take. Amazing."

Step Back reached No.1 in the Billboard blues chart, No.1 in the independent album chart and No.17 on the US top 200. Watch the video here.
