  • Stevie Ray was already the hottest act in Austin, Texas, way before David Bowie used his guitar on "Let's Dance." Vaughan's 1983 debut album, TEXAS FLOOD, had alerted the world to a new guitar phenomenon who combined the blues power of Freddie and Albert King with the inspired ferocity of Jimi Hendrix. He made the Hendrix connection plain with his take on "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)," which rapidly became a concert highlight. At the other extreme was "Tin Pan Alley," a slow blues made famous by Jimmy Wilson but now associated with the Texas hotshot. This was the time when Stevie Ray's celebrity and status among his peers was at least the equal of Eric Clapton. The pitfalls were beckoning.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (4/2/99, p.95) - "The late Texas guitarist was a fiercely distinctive blues-rock phenom whose sensitivity and imagination justified his rapid rise to prominence..."

Q (5/95, p.138) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Vaughan's post-Hendrix Stratocasting still sparkles....a reminder of the wit that often informed his phrasing and his willingness to torch them boundaries..."

Down Beat (p.76) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "In studio and onstage, he morphs pitch-bending into a visceral art form....This roadhouse veteran sings quite well."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[L]istening to him shred strings in front of an audience reminds us why he's so sorely missed."
