After a series of successful studio albums - from Texas Flood to Soul to Soul - and a wicked live album - Live Alive - Stevie Ray Vaughan sat at the top of the blues heap. He had the respect of old guys like Albert King and even the young kids dug him. In Step came out in 1989, just a couple years shy of the alternative rock explosion that, arguably, crowded the scene with guitar-wankers - not one of them as proficient and soulful as Stevie. But with this record SRV stood tall in the spotlight. The album opens with the party tune, "The House is Rockin'" which has Stevie and keyboardists Reese Wynans trading off like two masters. "Crossfire" follows as a more serious and straight-up rock song backed by the Texicali Horns. "Tightrope" demonstrates that signature Stevie sound of him playing what sounds like strings as thick as logs. Appearing in remastered format, this album offers a series of bonus tracks, starting with interview clips with SRV.
