MAGICAL, CREATIVE, AUTHENTIC, NOSTALGIC, FROM THE SKY, THANKS STEVIE RAY, FOR THE MUSIC, FOR BRING US THE BLUES.
Except for Vaughan, this show isn't very exciting. The drummer isn't much involved, and you can barely hear the bassist, but he isn't very involved, either. The small audience sits quietly, then applauds politely and whistles a little at the end of each number. The low price makes it more than worthwhile to see and hear Stevie, though. He sings great and plays his guitar in many positions, even bouncing it on the floor and then standing on it. Deming has two of the songs wrong above. The songs are: Testify, So Excited, Voodoo Chile, Pride and Joy, Tell Me, Mary had a Little Lamb, Texas Flood, Love Struck Baby, Hug You Squeeze You, Third Stone from the Sun, Lenny and Wham. There is an interview with the drummer and bassist.
Only a musician truly knows how difficult it is, for a three piece band to fill the sonic gaps. The Jimi Hendrix Experience did it, Rory Gallagher did it with Taste and later under his own name. Probably less well known yet equal in every way to those other two Giants, is Texas' very own Stevie Ray Vaughan. This was just another night on the road as SRV and Double Trouble blazed their way through the smokey barjoints and clubs accross the North American continent. The difference being that tonight, there are microphones and cameras in the club to record every last note and grimace. The result is stunning. From his rendition of Voodoo Chile, a homage to his boyhood hero Jimi Hendrix to the force majeur of Texas Flood, this is SRV at a supreme moment in his career. SRV was essentially a live artiste and this DVD captures the spirit of that raw passion better than any other. If you are a SRV fan you should already have this on VHS. If not, then I truly envy you as you have the whole experience to come to! You will not forget it. A blues voice to die for and a guitar technique that was at times, sublime. The legend that is Stevie Ray Vaughan.
If you are a SRV fan...WHY DON'T YOU HAVE THIS ALREADY?!? This is one of the greatest guitar performances of all time, period. Just unbelieveable. Every song smokes, but his versions of Texas Flood and Little Wing are the stuff of legends. I simply can't say enough about this performance!
I absolutely loved the dvd and would strongly recommend this and any Stevie Ray Vaughan dvd you can get your hands on. I have 2 sons who play guitar and one also plays drums. They both are enthralled with Stevie Ray and consider him to be one of the top guitar players of all time. The dvd shows up close just how he perfected his guitar playing. He never does much talking because he doesn't need to. His playing says it all.
I can attest to the greatness of this recording. Many have recorded at my club and this double album by Stevie Ray Vaughan is among the best.
