All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Recorded in December 1983, In Session captures an in-concert jam between Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the latter of whom had become the hot blues guitarist of the year thanks to his debut Texas Flood, as well as his work on David Bowie's hit Let's Dance. Vaughan may have been the new news, but King was not suffering, either. He had a world-class supporting band and was playing as well as he ever had. In other words, the stage was set for a fiery, exciting concert and that's exactly what they delivered. Vaughan was clearly influenced by King -- there are King licks all over his first two recorded efforts, and it was an influence that stayed with him to the...

Recorded in December 1983, In Session captures an in-concert jam between Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the latter of whom had become the hot blues guitarist of the year thanks to his debut Texas Flood, as well as his work on David Bowie's hit Let's Dance. Vaughan may have been the new news, but King was not suffering, either. He had a world-class supporting band and was playing as well as he ever had. In other words, the stage was set for a fiery, exciting concert and that's exactly what they delivered. Vaughan was clearly influenced by King -- there are King licks all over his first two recorded efforts, and it was an influence that stayed with him to the end -- and he was unafraid to go toe-to-toe with his idol. King must have been impressed, since In Session never devolves into a mere cutting contest. Instead, each musicians spurs the other to greater heights. For aficionados of either guitarist, that means the album isn't just worth a listen -- it means that it's a record that sounds as exciting on each subsequent listen as does the first time through.

    Oldtime Bluesman Hosts Young Blues Guitar Prodigy

    If you are like most Stevie Ray Vaughan fans, you seek anything he ever recorded - which puts this item in the "must have" category for SRV fans. If you are not particularly a SRV fan, this album might not convert you as well as others. Stevie assumes a secondary position to Albert King here, complementing King's work without showing him up or overpowering him. I enjoyed the album greatly, but must admit to being a fan of both these artists, so I tried to temper my rating with the knowledge that better albums exist for the casual listener of either King or Vaughan. Stevie Ray recorded some of the best rockin' rhythm and blues of all time, along with his band Double Trouble. And Albert King is well known as a true blues master. So I urge you to not limit yourself to this one sample - although quite tasty.
