Analogue Productions is about to rock your world with the greatest Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute ever reissued: Six of Vaughan's most classic album titles combined in this Ultimate Box Set of six 200g Vinyl 33rpm LPs for ultimate blues and guitar fanatics!
With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the '80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Otis Rush and Hubert Sumlin and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre. Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late '60s. For about seven years, Stevie Ray Vaughan was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence in blues and American rock & roll.
This is classic Stevie Ray Vaughan, meticulously remastered from the original analog tapes by New York's Sterling Sound. The set includes Texas Flood, Couldn't Stand the Weather, Soul to Soul, In Step, plus the posthumous classics Family Style and The Sky Is Crying.
This box set contains 33 1/3 rpm versions of five albums by Stevie Ray Vaughan and also includes the sixth and final album by Stevie Ray recorded with brother Jimmie.
Texas Flood: Texas Flood became a surprise smash and established Vaughan as the preeminent guitar hero of the 1980s featuring the hit song "Pride and Joy".
Couldn't Stand the Weather: The Lone Star guitar master and his Double Trouble bandmates Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton hit their stride with the 1984 sophomore release Couldn't' Stand the Weather.
Soul To Soul: With an expanded lineup, Soul To Soul is one of the legendary guitarist's most highly prized releases that includes such fan favorites as "Look at Little Sister", "Change It", and "Say What!".
In Step: The 1989 Grammy-winning In Step contains the upbeat tracks "The House Is Rockin'" and "Scratch N Sniff".
The Sky Is Crying: A compilation album containing studio recordings by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble between 1984 and 1989.
Family Style: The only collaboration album for brothers Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan was released just one month after the untimely death of Stevie Ray. Not only was it their only collaboration recording, it turned out to be Stevie Ray's final studio performance.
Those of you familiar with Analogue Productions' previous box sets - Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, Creedence Clearwater Revival - know how deluxe these sets are. From the detailed liner notes to the rarest photographs, these sets will truly be gems.
For those with an audiophile passion and a pocketbook on a budget, the 33 1/3 rpm 200g 6LP set satisfies like no other.
Each 200g LP set features a look inside the career of a legend whose death at age 35 shocked the music world. A few statistics showcase Vaughan's success and musical influence: His debut album Texas Flood, reached No. 38 on the charts, crossing over to rock radio stations. The album's successor, Couldn't Stand the Weather, released in May 1984, reached No. 31 on the charts; by the end of 1985 it went gold. Vaughan and his band, Double Trouble, recorded their third album, Soul to Soul, released in August 1985, and it reached No. 34 on the charts.
Be prepared to be blown away by this Ultra-High Quality 200g Vinyl 33rpm 6LP set!
"These recordings have never sounded this good, and likely will never sound better. Layers seem to have been stripped away, and the music seems to have been set free. Vaughan's guitar has new bite and edge." -Stereophile
"It's the best these albums have ever and probably will ever sound." -Michael Fremer, analogplanet.com, Music 9/10, Sound 10/10
