Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Stevie Ray Vaughan was a great guitarist, but he had trouble making consistent albums. Greatest Hits rectifies that problem by collecting all of his best-known tracks, from "Pride and Joy" to "Crossfire." Not only is it a terrific introduction, it's his most consistent album, demonstrating exactly why he was one of the most important guitarists of the '80s.

    Inadequate

    A really great compilation makes the artist in question seem better than he really is. Really, it does. It compiles all of the artist's best material, leaving out the fat and the gristle, thus making the albums it summarizes - and by extension, the artist - seem better than they actually are. Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Greatest Hits" does the opposite. It gathers several magnificent songs, but too many of these eleven selections, particularly the instrumental rendition of "Little Wing", "Crossfire", "Couldn't Stand The Weather", and his cover of "Taxman", aren't really among Vaughan's most memorable. They are not bad, far from it, but the track list just doesn't demonstrate how great Stevie Ray actually was. And besides, it's too short. They could have fitted another half dozen songs onto one CD. Now, the new "Greatest Hits 2" goes a very long way towards rectifying this, but this album by itself just doesn't do it. Sure, "Pride And Joy", "Texas Flood" and "Cold Shot" are here, but way too many great songs are not: "Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love", "Scuttle Buttin'", "Love Struck Baby", "I'm Cryin'", "Dirty Pool" and "Willie The Wimp" to name but a few. If you are looking for a really good Stevie Ray Vaughan compilation, go for the double-disc "The Essential Stevie Ray Vaughan And Double Trouble". That one costs less than "Greatest Hits" and "Greatest Hits vol. II" put together (and features 33 songs, as opposed to 27), and if you really want to limit your SRV-collection to just one or two discs, "The Essential Stevie Ray Vaughan And Double Trouble" should be the one.
