Import 180-gram LP pressing. When the blues was no longer hip as it was in the '60s Stevie Ray Vaughan crashed the charts with his debut album 'Texas Flood' in 1983. Spending more than six months in the charts made Vaughan a true star and on his own he revitalized the blues experience again. On 'Texas Flood' Stevie Ray Vaughan celebrates his influences, pumps fresh blood into the familiar genre and made it a success... once again! The album kicks off with two well known songs 'Love Struck Baby' and 'Pride And Joy', after which he starts building to the climax of 'Dirt Pool' and 'I'm Crying'. The album concludes with a tribute to his wife 'Lenny'. Stevie Ray Vaughan's unique quality is that he's not an artist who just recorded albums in the blues genre trying to approach the standard. Instead he just simply joined in with all the '60s blues legends.

Quite simply wonderful blues guitar playing the accuracy of SRV’s playing has to be listened to and enjoyed, Pride and Joy and Texas Flood are particularly good and of course the standout Lenny.
Whilst the album is not expensive it’s cost me a fair bit of cash buying other albums, the one with Albert King, The Ultimate Collection and a DVD, I just know there’s more to find
So I bought this, wondering what the bonus track on the main disc and the whole extra disc would be like. It is SRV, so I was optimistic. Well, I needn't have been concerned. The original album recording is excellent - I know most of the songs from a compilation set that I have, and the Texas Flood album does not disappoint. A good example of how trying to classify music into one genre or another does not always work. Rock? Blues? SRV, very well supported by Double Trouble, is all the categorisation it needs.
And the second disc definitely exceeded my expectations. It's a good quality live recording from the same year as the original album, including his excellent versions of Hendrix's Voodoo Chile and Little Wing.
If you like SRV, then you must surely like this. Hard to imagine how amazing it would have sounded when hearing him for the first time. Shame he died so early, otherwise he would surely have just carried on and on producing wonderful music.
