On Thursday Stevie Ray Vaughan Career Spanning Box Set Coming This Fall was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Stevie Ray Vaughan's career will be celebrated this fall with the release of "Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble: The Complete Epic Recordings Collection", a 12-disc box set due October 28.
The set brings together, for the first time, the entirety of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's official studio and live album catalogue, including the inaugural commercial release of "A Legend In The Making", a highly collectible (formerly) promotional only recording of SRV & DT's incendiary performance at Toronto's El Mocambo club in 1983. In addition, "The Complete Epic Recordings Collection" features two discs compiling rare and hard-to-find archival tracks.
Vaughan was already making a name for himself in Texas with live performances before releasing his debut album, "Texas Flood", in 1983. The record introduced the guitar slinger to the world and opened the gates for a flow of gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums for Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, an unprecedented achievement for any blues act.
Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a helicopter crash on August 27, 1990, following an awe-inspiring performance with Double Trouble and Eric Clapton at the Alpine Valley Resort in Wisconsin. - here.
