Not yet rated | write a review

At the time of his unexpected death, Stevie Ray Vaughan had built up a reputation as one of the true greats of electrified blues guitar. Every single track on this album just reinforces the fact that he deserves his position at the top of the pack. From the classic phrasing of "Scuttle Buttin'" to the pumped-up energy of "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)," there's no fast-forward material at all on this project. Couldn't Stand the Weather was one of the first discs that introduced us to Stevie's immense talents and it just underlines how much the music world lost.

Editorial Notes

This 1999 reissue contains five bonus tracks not on the original release. Personnel: Stevie Ray Vaughan (vocals, guitar); Jimmie Vaughan (guitar); Stan Harrison (tenor saxophone); Tommy Shannon (bass); Chris "Whipper" Layton, Fran Christina (drums). Producers: Chris Layton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tommy Shannon, Richard Mullen, Jim Capfer. Reissue producer: Bob Irwin. Originally released on Epic (39304). Includes liner notes by Bill Milkowski. Digitally remastered by Vic Anesini (Sony Music Studios, New York, New York). Stevie Ray was already the hottest act in Austin, Texas, way before David Bowie used his guitar on "Let's Dance." Vaughan's 1983 debut album, TEXAS FLOOD, had alerted the world to a new guitar phenomenon who combined the blues power of Freddie and Albert King with the inspired ferocity of Jimi Hendrix. He made the Hendrix connection plain with his take on "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)," which rapidly became a concert highlight. At the other extreme was "Tin Pan Alley," a slow blues made famous by Jimmy Wilson but now associated with the Texas hotshot. This was the time when Stevie Ray's celebrity and status among his peers was at least the equal of Eric Clapton. The pitfalls were beckoning.
