The sudden passing of Johnny Winter on July 17 has brought a renewed spotlight to his career. To celebrate his life, we've partnered with Friday Music to give one lucky winner 15 of his albums on vinyl.

The collection includes four of the five albums he recorded for Columbia in the late '60s and early '70s: 'Johnny Winter' (1969), 'Second Winter' (1969), 'Johnny Winter And Live' (1971) and 'Still Alive and Well' (1973). These represent his most commercially successful efforts, with three of them cracking the Top 40 on the Billboard 200 ('Second Winter' reached No. 55).

In addition, we are also giving away all 11 volumes of his 'Live Bootleg Series.' These are concert recordings -- where his razor-sharp guitar licks were on full display on his original songs or his blues covers -- from Winter's archives from across his career. For complete information, visit Friday Music's website.
