(antiMusic) Epic/Legacy has posted the first installment of the Stevie Ray Vaughan podcast to mark the release of the new 'SOLOS, SESSIONS & ENCORES' CD. The podcast is hosted by Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel, and features the talents of David Bowie, Jeff Beck, Bonnie Raitt and more!

Here is a little about the CD followed by a link to the podcast: Like the greatest 20th century blues and rock guitarists who preceded him, many of whom were primal influences on his journeyman lifestyle and unpredictable musical outlook, Stevie Ray Vaughan (1954-1990) was always ready, willing and able to jam. Whether it was a rhythm section backup assignment in the recording studio for another singer or instrumentalist, or a live drop-in onstage at a nightclub or festival, his presence enhanced every session he made, and left some unforgettable music in its wake.

For the first time, an entire album collection is devoted to this side of Stevie Ray Vaughan's career. SOLOS, SESSIONS & ENCORES gathers 14 varied performances - half of them live, including the near-mythic 1984 jam with Jeff Beck at the CBS Records Convention in Honolulu. With one 1978 exception, the album spans five of his years as an Epic Records artist, from 1983 to 1988. There are album session tracks with Albert King, B.B. King, Paul Butterfield, Marcia Ball, Johnny Copeland, A.C. Reed, Bill Carter, Dick Dale, and David Bowie's "Let's Dance" (the worldwide #1 chart smash that ignited Stevie Ray's stardom in 1983) - plus six previously unreleased tracks (five of them live) with Lonnie Mack, Katie Webster, Albert Collins, Jimmie Vaughan, Lou Ann Barton, and Bonnie Raitt. - Listen to the podcast here
