The 45rpm Analogue Productions reissue of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Couldn't Stand The Weather is so good, as are its 45rpm companions - Texas Flood and Soul To Soul - that they truly represent what Gregg Geller, producer and A&R representative described as "the best replication of the master tapes to date."
Analogue Productions used the original 30 inches-per-second, half-inch analog master tapes. Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed at Quality Record Pressings.
Couldn't Stand The Weather is the remarkable sophomore album by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. It follows their critically acclaimed debut, Texas Flood. Incorporating the same winning formula of musicianship and songwriting, Couldn't Stand The Weather cemented Vaughan's place as one of music's greatest. It is their first to earn gold certification and their first platinum-seller. It includes breathtaking renditions of Clark's "Cold Shot" and Hendrix's "Voodoo Child". A staple on the Billboard charts, this definitive masterpiece received praise from Entertainment Weekly, Q, Down Beat and many others.
There's not a link in this production chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy.
But beyond that Analogue Productions poured their passion into this project. As a big fan of the blues and Stevie Ray Vaughan, it's a big dream come true to work on this project and to make these records sound and look the best they ever have.
The new remastering sounds amazing. Better than it ever did. I'm happy and pleasantly surprised.
