The Edgar Winter group in a 1973 live studio performance. Watch as Winter demonstrates his mastery of several instruments including the synthesizer, saxophone, and timbales all in one stellar performance of his rock classic Frankenstein.
The other players are Chuck Ruff on drums, Rick Derringer on guitar, and Dan Hartman on bass. Derringer was a frequent guitarist for Winter in both the studio and on tour. His biggest hit as a solo artist was his 1974 Rock & Roll, Hoochie Koo. Frankenstein was the big hit off of Winters They Only Come Out at Night LP, which Derringer produced. Hartman co-wrote, with Winter, most of the songs and did most of the lead vocals. They Only Come Out at Night is a must for any early 1970s classic rock collection. It is a solid production from start to finish featuring several music styles from pop rock to progressive rock, to the party novelty We All Had a Real Good Time. The acoustic ballad Autumn written and sung by Hartman is one of my favorites off the LP. Hartman would have his biggest hit as a solo artist in 1985 with I Can Dream About You, which peaked at number 55 on the charts.
I obtained this video via another YouTube channel. I noticed the audio was way out of sync with the video so I fixed that and did some other minor editing. This is an exceptional look at an era in music that many feel was the peak of artistic expression and song craft. An era when raw talent and musicianship mattered most as opposed to todays visual and sex obsessed music industry. Oh to be back in the days when the music mattered most!
