Album Notes
John Nitzinger, a Texas legend, has been a worldwide force behind rock and roll since the ‘70’s. His song writing style is unique and diversified. He is known for his contribution to the development of the signature sound of “Texas Rock and Blues”.

Proof of his Texas legendary status, Nitzinger was one of the first four artists to be inducted into Buddy Magazine’s Texas Tornado’s Hall of Fame in 1978, “as a Texas Tornado of Guitar, one of the best musicians in Texas, perhaps in the world.”

During the ‘70’s, John wrote half of five albums with the rock band, Bloodrock. He was awarded a Gold Album from Capitol Records for “Bloodrock 2” and was soon signed to Capitol on a solo venture. Two classics were released; the self titled “Nitzinger” and “Nitzinger One Foot In History”. The hit single “Louisiana Cockfight” is considered to be a classic.

John took to touring his solo albums and shared the stage with legendary artists such as, Leon Russell, BB King, Sly & The Family Stone and Freddie King. Moving on internationally, he performed at the Mar Y Sol International Pop Festival in Puerto Rico with world renowned artists such as The Allman Brothers Band, Alice Cooper, BB King, The J. Geils Band, The Mahavishnu Orchestra with John McLaughlin, Emerson Lake & Palmer, among others. John’s classic, “Jelly Roll Blues” stole the show and became an instant hit for Atlantic Records.

In 1976, John signed with 20th Century Fox and music mogul, Russ Regan to produce Nitzinger’s album, “Live Better Electrically”. This album reached the charts with two hit singles, “Are You With Me” and “Yellow Dog”.

In 1980, Carl Palmer broke away from Emerson Lake and Palmer to form a new group, 1PM, which included John as a major song writer and guitarist. They signed to Areola Europe Records and released the single “Dynamite”, increasing John’s popularity in the overseas market.

In 1982, John joined forces with Alice Cooper on the “Special Forces” international and USA tours as guitarist. After touring, John wrote, with Alice Cooper, the album “Zipper Catches Skin”. The album was released on Warner Bros. Records featuring John’s “I Like Girls”, a great success in Europe and Asia.

With his return from the road, John released an album on the label of Record Heaven, “Going Back To Texas”. This album contains thirteen of his classic songs such as, “Louisiana Cockfight”, “Jelly Roll Blues”, “Yellow Dog”, “L.A. Texas Boy”, and “Control”.

John hit the road again for a brief European tour performing at the Tenth Annual Sweden Rock Festival as well as appearing on television, radio and at exclusive club dates. Due to popular demand, another European tour is in the near future.

A Nitzinger show is a “must see” event. It’s memorable to experience the emotion in his songwriting and to witness the instrumental prowess of an artist of his stature.

Kiss of the Mudman
This could be Nitzinger's finest work to date. I've been a Nitzinger fan since his debut album in 1971 and he always delivers great albums/CD's.
Keep on Rockin' John and best of health.

Kiss of the mudman
Nice tart mix and usual unexpected chord changes make this enjoyable and interesting


This is fantastic!
Great, great, great!


Long awaited studio effort is true Nitzinger style
This recording showcases the growth of the artist in the new works and the revamping of the older songs included on the CD. The mix is very good and the placement of songs works well also. It's a must recording to have for any Nitzinger fan.
