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.

Product Notes

This legendary 1983 debut by the fallen torchbearer of the ''80s-''90s blues revival sounds even more dramatic in its remixed and expanded edition. Stevie Ray Vaughan''s guitar and vocals are a bit brighter and more present on this 14-track CD. And the newly included bonus numbers (an incendiary studio version of the slow blues "Tin Pan Alley" that was left off the original release, and live takes of "Testify," "Mary Had a Little Lamb," and the instrumental "Wham!" from a 1983 Hollywood concert) illuminate the raw soul and passion that propelled his artistry even when he was under the spell of drug addiction. Texas Flood captures Vaughan as rockin'' blues purist, paying tribute in his inspired six-string diction to his influences Larry Davis (who wrote the title track), Buddy Guy, Albert King, and Jimi Hendrix. His own contemplative "Lenny," a tribute to his wife at the time, also suggests a jazz-fueled complexity that would infuse his later work. --Ted Drozdowski

SRV doesnt reinvent the wheel on this album but its still solid SRV. He takes classic sound and blues quality and applies his own touch...
