It's My Life Baby is a very special Johnny Winter compilation album released for Record Store Day in April 2015 featuring eight classic tracks from Johnny's three Alligator Records releases.

The real blues. That’s why Johnny Winter left a label owned by a huge international media conglomerate and signed with tiny, independent Alligator Records—to record the real blues.

In the mid-1980s, Johnny Winter was still a rock star. He had burst on the scene in the late 1960s and by the middle of the 1970s, his fiery, blurringly-fast guitar and raw vocals had made him the #1 arena rock draw in the country. Although the peak of his popularity had passed by the 1980s, he still could have signed with any major record company in New York or Los Angeles for a bundle of money. But Johnny knew what he wanted. He was ready to get back to his blues roots.

Johnny’s Alligator debut, Guitar Slinger, was released in 1984 and was immediately hailed as one of his best ever, and became the fastest seller in Alligator’s history.  The second album Serious Business followed in 1985 with the third and final album for Alligator records Third Degree was released in 1986.

Over less than three years, Johnny Winter lived out his dream of recording unadulterated blues with some of the most soulful bluesmen in the world. Eight of the finest tracks from those three albums are brought together here, remastered and back on vinyl for the first time in decades.

Check out a couple of tracks:  It's My Life Baby, Don't Take Advantage of Me, and Broke and Lonely.

This is a special US Pressing for Record Store Day on 180 Gram Vinyl with a Digital Download.
