Concert filmed at London’s famous Royal Albert Hall in May 2004 featuring the hits «Free Ride,» «Frankenstein» and more!
In this memorable concert filmed at London’s famous Royal Albert Hall in May 2004, Edgar Winter performs highlights from his long and distinguished career. It all began almost forty years ago when he began playing in bands with his elder brother Johnny, the famous white bluesman and guitarist. A child prodigy and multi instrumentalist, Edgar’s principal instruments are alto sax, keyboards and synthesizer – he was amongst the first musicians to take up and promote the newly-developed instrument. After making a memorable appearance at the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969 Edgar signed to Epic Records and went on to enjoy considerable success in the early Seventies playing his commercial blend of blues, jazz and R&B. He has over twenty albums to his name, including the double platinum-selling ‘They Only Come Out At Night’. In 1973, he had two major US hit singles with ‘Free Ride’ and the chart-topping ‘Frankenstein’, the first pop track to feature a synthesizer lead. Both singles, along with ‘Tobacco Road’, remain firm favorites with rock radio stations throughout the world. All three are featured on this concert DVD.
