Comin' Up Fast



Years before Johnny and Edgar Winter were Rock and Roll, Hoochie Kooing with Rick Derringer or taking the keytar to bold new heights, they were laying down fuzz-faced garage rock with Amos Boynton in Houston.

A fantastic party record, "Comin' Up Fast" features loads of hooting and hollering as Johnny laments trying to fit in with the ladies as times change and dresses become shorter and shorter.

Amos Boynton & the ABCs recorded a revamped version of the song with slightly different lyrics called "The Ballad Of Bertha Glutz" that went unreleased until it found its way to the excellent Acid Visions compilation in the eighties.

So, this is Johnny Winter singing lead? And Edgar is in the band too? Where's "part 2"?

As far as I know, it's Edgar Winter playing keys and Johnny Winter on guitar and vocals.

I'll try to record part two and post it when I get a chance.
