The Sky Is Crying

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
The posthumously assembled ten-track outtakes collection The Sky Is Crying actually proves to be one of Stevie Ray Vaughan's most consistent albums, rivaling In Step as the best outside of the Greatest Hits collection. These songs were recorded in sessions spanning from 1984's Couldn't Stand the Weather to 1989's In Step and were left off of the LPs for whatever reason or, in the case of Soul to Soul's "Empty Arms," a different version was used. What makes the record work is its eclectic diversity -- Vaughan plays slide guitar on "Boot Hill" and acoustic on "Life by the Drop"; he smokes on the slow blues of "May I Have a Talk With You" and the title track just as much as on ...

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
The posthumously assembled ten-track outtakes collection The Sky Is Crying actually proves to be one of Stevie Ray Vaughan's most consistent albums, rivaling In Step as the best outside of the Greatest Hits collection. These songs were recorded in sessions spanning from 1984's Couldn't Stand the Weather to 1989's In Step and were left off of the LPs for whatever reason or, in the case of Soul to Soul's "Empty Arms," a different version was used. What makes the record work is its eclectic diversity -- Vaughan plays slide guitar on "Boot Hill" and acoustic on "Life by the Drop"; he smokes on the slow blues of "May I Have a Talk With You" and the title track just as much as on the up-tempo Lonnie Mack cover, "Wham"; and he shows the jazzy side of his playing on Hendrix's "Little Wing" and Kenny Burrell's "Chitlins Con Carne." But it's not just musical diversity that makes the record work, it's also Vaughan's emotional range. From the morbidly dark "Boot Hill" to the lilting "Little Wing" to the exuberant tributes to his influences -- Lonnie Mack on "Wham" and Albert King on "The Sky Is Crying" -- Vaughan makes the material resonate, and in light of his death, "The Sky Is Crying" and the touching survivor-story ballad "Life by the Drop" are two of the most moving moments in Vaughan's oeuvre.

    Good blues album even for those who don't like blues

    Stevie Ray Vaughan is one of the many great guitarists in the world. He goes to the extremes with blues guitar on this album. There's not a single track that I skip over when I listen to it. Little Wing and Life By The Drop are the best songs on the album. I think the instrumentals are the better ones. Buy this one today! You'll love it.

    This album is the best

    If I was stuck on an island with only one cd to listen to over and over again, this would be the one I would want. I have owned this cd for many years and have yet to tire of it.

    Simply the most soulful music created...

    The late Stevie Ray Vaughan exemplified Texas blues and classic rock... And his covers of other artists, of particular note, Jimi Hendrix, not only did them great justice but are stand alone works of art! Simply the most soulful music created and bound to run chills up your spine!
