This is an album for both lifelong blues fans and those just getting into the blues. It captures a moment in time when the old guard meets the new kid in town. Whether jamming or just B.S.'ing between tunes, Albert and Stevie have a fantastic rapport together. You can tell they are having a blast together. Every track is priceless. Buy this album NOW!

I am not sure how I found this CD - I never knew it actually existed. I heard snippets of what seemed to be a studio jam of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan. When I stumbled upon this CD and heard it for the first time, I was left breathless. Folks, it just doesn't get any better than this. This disc features a set of some of the best musicians in the industry, just letting go, letting loose, letting creativity take over, and improvise all the way to the end. I'm a big fan of Stevie Ray Vaughan, and this CD made me appreciate his work even more. There's an obvious mentor-student kind of exchange going on between Mr. King and Mr. Vaughan. Their guitars talk to one another like nothing else. When they get into it, watch out - you're going to be flying high right alongside these guys. The back cover of the CD says "This is no guitar shootout". Well, I am not sure I agree because it IS a guitar shootout, but it's the kind you want to hear more and more of. 63 minutes and 53 seconds of this CD are not enough. In my opinion, THE most impressive blues guitar solos I have EVER heard from ANYONE ANYWHERE is on track 6, "Blues at Sunrise". It's a 15-minute jam which no words can describe justly. I took my stereo to the limit listening to this track. When I heard it for the first couple times, the intensity is so high it can make one cry - it's that beautiful. When they wrap this track up, Albert and Stevie break out laughing, and quite rightly so. Wow. I do think, however, that the musicians backing them deserve a lot of praise. The drums were played seamlessly by Michael Llorens - very impressive. The bass, played by Gus Thornton was as impressive. I was amazed by the ability of other musicians to read and follow Albert and Stevie wherever they felt like venturing out to. There is also a video of this jam that's been made... I've seen bits of it at BB King's Blues Club in NYC while waiting for BB King's concert there, and I want to get this video. If you like the blue and can stand the intensity, get this disc - it will blow you away.
