Released:
Label: WINDHAM HILL/LEGACY
Winston's first solo piano album was released in 1972 and features him taking on a mix of traditional and original tunes in a style that blends stride piano with New Orleans rhythm. Originally released on John Fahey's Takoma label, Ballads and Blues also delivers a cover of Fahey's "Brenda's Blues." Of special note: this Legacy/BMG reissue includes five bonus tracks, the most interesting of which is an uncharacteristically punchy demo of "You Don't Love Me," the Bo Diddley/Willie Cobb tune.
