Epic/Legacy expanded Stevie Ray Vaughan's second album Couldn't Stand the Weather in 1999, adding four outtakes and an interview excerpt to the eight-track original, but the 2010 Legacy Edition expands it further still, retaining those four cuts, adding four songs from the posthumous compilation The Sky Is Crying ("Empty Arms," "Wham!," "Close to You," "Little Wing") along with three previously unreleased alternate takes ("The Sky Is Crying," "Stang's Swang," "Boot Hill"), and a full, unreleased concert SRV & Double Trouble gave at the Spectrum in Montreal on August 17, 1984. Apart from "Empty Arms" and "Stang's Swang," every studio outtake is a cover, underscoring how Vaughan spent much of Couldn't Stand the Weather drawing from his influences and synthesizing them into his own voice, and their addition actually strengthens the album considerably. With that in mind, the lively concert on the second disc is a bonus treat, evidence that SRV & Double Trouble were flying very high during 1984 and one of the better complete live sets in Vaughan's discography. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
