Johnny Winter is the second studio album by American blues-rock musician Johnny Winter, originally released in April 1969 via Columbia Records.

Winter began his career at fifteen, releasing "School Day Blues" on Houston record label Glad Music Co. with his band Johnny & The Jammers, he was best known for producing his three Grammy Award-winning albums for Muddy Waters, along with his high-energy blues-rock albums and live performances in the late 1960s and 1970s and his own Grammy nominated albums. In 1988, he was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and in 2003, he was ranked 63rd in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time".

Johnny Winter caught his biggest break in December 1968, when Mike Bloomfield, whom he met and jammed with in Chicago, invited him to sing and play a song during a Bloomfield and Al Kooper concert at the Fillmore East in New York City. As it happened, representatives of Columbia Records (which had released the Top Ten Bloomfield/Kooper/Stills Super Session album) were at the concert. Winter played and sang B.B. King's "It's My Own Fault" to loud applause and, within a few days, was signed to Columbia Records.

His first album with Colubia Records the self titled Johnny Winter featured the same backing musicians with whom he had recorded his debut album The Progressive Blues Experiment, released in 1968. The musicians included, bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Uncle John Turner, plus Edgar Winter on keyboards and saxophone, and (for his "Mean Mistreater") Willie Dixon on upright bass and Big Walter Horton on harmonica.

The album featured a few selections that became Winter signature songs, including his composition "Dallas" (an acoustic blues, on which Winter played a steel-bodied, resonator guitar), John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson's "Good Morning Little School Girl", and B.B. King's "Be Careful with a Fool".

Johnny Winter produced the album and producer / engineer Eddie Kramer, known for his work with Jimi Hendrix was credited as "production consultant" on the album.

This album introduced the world to Winter's complete and utter mastery of the electric as well as acoustic blues guitar lexicon. The album received critical acclaim upon release and catapulted Winter to a position of rock's newest superstar. Winter toured that year in support of the album playing a few festivals, including Woodstock.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album: BB King's Be Careful With A Fool, Dallas, along with I'm Yours And I'm Hers, and Good Morning Litle School Girl.
