Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble - Texas Flood Legacy Edition

.
It's been three decades since Stevie Ray Vaughan stunned both the rock and blues worlds with the release of debut album Texas Flood and fans really have an excellent reason to pick up this 30th anniversary Legacy Edition: the inclusion of a full, previously unreleased live show from the era.

The show was recorded in Philadelphia a mere few months after Texas Flood came out and at a time when people didn't really know yet the depth of the young guitar slinger's talent. It would've been something to see the faces in the crowd at the show; undoubtedly jaws were dropping as Vaughan started the show with a blistering instrumental cover of the Isley Brothers' "Testify" followed by a take on his own instrumental, the non-Texas Flood cut "So Excited."

After that the crowd found out the cat could sing, too, as Vaughan rips into what would become a perennial live favorite, Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)." The meat of Texas Flood, "Pride and Joy," "Love Struck Baby," "Mary Had a Little Lamb" and the title cut are performed before the show sizzles to a conclusion with another homage to Hendrix in "Little Wing/Third Stone From the Sun."
