Performer Notes
  • Double Trouble: Tommy Shannon (acoustic guitar, bass); Chris Layton (piano, drums, percussion).
  • Additional personnel includes: Doyle Bramhall II, Dr. John, Lou And Barton, Eric Johnson, Susan Tedeschi, Jonny Lang, Malford Milligan, Willie Nelson, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Charlie Sexton, Jimmie Vaughan, Reese Wynans, Gordie Johnson, Van Wilks, Denny Freeman, Mark Kazanoff, Bill Willis, Riley Osbourn, Tommy Taylor, Derek O'Brien.
  • Producers include: Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhall II, Stephen Bruton, Jimmie Vaughan, Double Trouble.
  • Engineers include: Andy Taub, Stuart Sullivan, Richard Mullens.
  • You have to give the late guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughan's rhythm section credit for perseverance. Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding, the rhythm section of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, never took it upon themselves to continue as a recording entity after their leader's passing. Of course, Double Trouble is buoyed on BEEN A LONG TIME by a host of famous friends who offer impassioned performances to occupy Vaughan's vacated frontman spot.
  • Bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton are as rock-solid here as they ever were backing up their erstwhile leader. They don't spend much time looking back, either. BEEN A LONG TIME isn't really a blues album--rather, it's a bluesy rock album with a decidedly contemporary edge that owes little to Vaughan's sound. Jonny Lang, Susan Tedeschi, Charlie Sexton, and many others lend their voices and guitars to BEEN A LONG TIME, but Double Trouble can take the credit for putting (and keeping) the whole thing together.

Professional Reviews
CMJ (1/22/01, p.41) - "...DT's rock remains blue....sounding closer to a modern rock a la Lenny Kravitz or Black Crowes..."

JazzTimes (6/01, p.107) - "...An all-star cast of blues-rockers....there are lots of rockin' good highlights..."

Living Blues (5-6/01, p.76) - "...A highly eclectic session....there's a powerful modern Texas feeling to the tracks, with a combo of original and cover material ranging from ballads and country to hard rock and funk....all well-performed..."

Mojo (Publisher) (5/01, p.112) - "...Appetising..."
