    A True Revolutionary

    Out of all of SRV's records "Couldn't Stand the Weather" is by far my favorite. Stevie Ray Vaughan is nothing but better on this album, if that is possible. Scuttle Buttin' is an amazing blues solo that you can just imagine him playing on stage with the guitar behind his back. Couldn't Stand the Weather is by far my favorite song he ever wrote. The song fades in with short blues lines before you get hit with a heavy, slightly distorted electric guitar, which he leads into an awesome rhythm that just flows. It's like he was jamming, playing around on his guitar and it came out. Tin Pan Alley, though a lengthy song, doesn't feel long, it's a slow blues tune with great licks. Honey Bee, an original piece, definately borrows from the song Hide Away, however I must admit the blues riff of Hide Away is one of my favorite blues riffs, the Texas Shuffle, of any song. The last track Stang's Swang shows Stevie Ray Vaughan leading into some jazz, which his brother said Stevie enjoyed listening too. This album is nothing less than outstanding with great extras like "Hide Away" by F. King, Look at Little Sister, Come On (Pt. III) and Give Me Back My Wig by Hound Dog Taylor. I have yet to get tired of this album with the variety it gives, plus it's just fun to listen too. I highly recommend this CD!

    The follow up to a legend

    This is an album that has a lot going for it. Mostly, it was yet another example of the six-string genius that was SRV. Overall, one will probably enjoy "The Things that I Used to do" more than any other track, except for the title. The cover of "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" is a nice touch, but that was a song that belonged on stage during a live show, and seems like filler when put to record. As for the rest, "Scuttle Buttin'", "Cold Shot" are as good as it is going to get. Considering they recorded this album in six weeks, it is a small miracle that it turned out this good.
