Not yet rated | write a review

Batten down the hatches, 'cause there's a Texas Flood about to sweep through town. Stevie Ray Vaughan plugs in to wail his way through the waters, electrifying as he churns through "Love Struck Baby" and "Dirty Pool." Vaughan's blend of blues spirit and rock-guitar prowess is unmatched and this remastering of his 1983 classic showcases the man at his peak. For a thorough lesson on how to achieve guitar perfection, check out the howling instrumental jam on "Lenny."

Editorial Notes

This 1999 reissue contains five bonus tracks not on the original release. Personnel: Stevie Ray Vaughan (vocals, guitar); Tommy Shannon (bass); Chris Layton (drums). Producers: Richard Mullen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Double Trouble. Reissue producer: Bob Irwin. Principally recorded at Down Town Studio, Los Angeles, California and Riverside Sound, Austin, Texas. Live tracks recorded at The Palace, Hollywood, California on September 23, 1983. Originally released on Epic (38734). Includes liner notes by Michael Ventura. Digitally remastered by Vic Anesini (Sony Music Studios, New York, New York). Quite possibly the only electric blues/rock guitarist to come near rivalling Jimi Hendrix, Vaughan, who, like Hendrix, died tragically, was so good he was ridiculous. He was lacking in really good material, and his own compositions were mainly guitar workouts, such as "Rude Mood," although he shows great feeling on the instrumental "Lenny." He is much more comfortable singing non-originals, and on this album he covers Buddy Guy's "Mary Had A Little Lamb" and Howlin Wolf's "Tell Me," but the listener is still waiting for the bit where the guitar solo comes in. Poor Double Trouble barely get a look in.
