Stevie Ray Vaughan Artist Snapshot:

In the 1980s, many assumed blues rock was left for dead, but Stevie Ray Vaughan helped breath life back into it. More than a straight-ahead bluesman, Texas-native Vaughan was influenced as much by Jimi Hendrix as he was by Otis Rush, and the singer/songwriter/guitarist possessed jaw-dropping technical abilities and pure soul in equal amounts. With his trio Double Trouble (later expanded to include keyboardist Reese Wynans), Vaughan helped spearhead something of a blues revival in the '80s. Like his hero Hendrix, though, the flamboyant guitar hero died too soon, killed in a helicopter accident in 1990.

Album Description

Reissue of 1984 album with 4 bonus tracks. 2001.

Product Notes

In a brief interview that precedes this CD's four bonus tracks--all unreleased gems from the original 1984 sessions--Stevie Ray Vaughan makes the point that "music used to be more based on common everyday occurrences like a train's sound going down the track ... a horse walking." Then he comes on with a version of Freddie King's "Hideaway" that chugs like a locomotive. There's also a heretofore unheard slide-guitar-powered "Give Me Back My Wig" and a blueprint of what became Soul to Soul's radio hit "Look at Little Sister." All those follow the improved mixes of the original CD, which include Vaughan's heartbreak chronicles "Couldn't Stand the Weather" and "Cold Shot"; his first jazzer, "Stang's Swang"; and his initial Hendrix outing, "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)." It's the sound of the guitar hero growing as an artist on his own terms--sidestepping the irony that poisoned '90s rock to stay true to the real-life aesthetic of the blues. --Ted Drozdowski
