EDGAR WINTER: TELL ME IN A WHISPER, THE SOLO ALBUMS 1970 – 1981

EDGAR WINTER: TELL ME IN A WHISPER, THE SOLO ALBUMS 1970 – 1981

16th February 2018 0 By John Deaux

Edgar Winter is one of rock’s aristocrats and more popular than ever. This new box set features his 1st 4 solo albums. Remastered from the original sources and expanded with a total of 14 bonus tracks made up of B-sides, single edits, mono mixes and extended tracks.

All 4 discs come in replica album cardboard sleeves housed in a gorgeous clam shell box with a booklet chocked full of liner notes as well as an essay by Malcolm Dome. 

Each album shows different sides to Edgars talents. From the classic 1971 track Tobacco Road

to the more outlandish Star Garbage from the 1981 Standing On Rock album.

This set is a perfect companion to the 6CD box, I’ve Got News For You (also available from HNE.Recordings)

Winter’s voice on all of these albums is outstanding and will make you wonder why he didn’t continue taking lead vocal in the White Trash Band.

Tell Me In a Whisper not only shows that Edgar is comfortable taking lead vocals but also as an accomplished saxophonist and is also happy playing the organ. 

There’s nothing bad about this collection. With its many fusions of rock, funk, jazz and blues. Everything has been thrown into a cauldron and has produced 4 incredible solo albums filled with some amazing compositions. 

A highly recommended anthology.

For fans of Rick Wakeman and Johnny Winter

Score 7/10
