Double Trouble without Stevie Ray Vaughan? Drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon get by with a little help from their friends, on an album of musical depth that will surprise skeptics and delight fans. Amid the varied shades of blue, highlights find the ace rhythm section reuniting with former Arc Angels bandmates Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II, Storyville singer Malford Milligan, and Stevie's brother, Jimmie Vaughan. There are passing-the-torch contributions from Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Susan Tedeschi (the latter two on a thunderous revival of Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll"). But it's Bramhall's power-trio transformation of Muddy Waters's "She's Alright" that evokes the strongest memories of Stevie. The album ends in expansively sophisticated fashion, with Dr. John, guitarist Willie Nelson, and a string section on "Baby, There's No One Like You," one of the four songs cowritten by Layton and Shannon. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars Can Double Trouble succeed without SRV (rip)? YES! February 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Ok, I may be a bit biased, I love these guys, but as a musician and purveyor of all things blues, I'm critical of EVERYONE's music. This CD is a welcome change from most new music coming out today. From Susan Tedeschi's soulful performance on "In The Garden" to Doyle Bramhall II and DT performing a trippy version of Muddy Waters' "She's Alright" (with a definite Hendrix vibe!), I'm in love with this recording. Jimmie Vaughan and Lou Ann Barton team-up with Double Trouble on a great rendition of "In The Middle Of The Night" with J. Vaughan's subtle, yet knock-your-socks-off playing peppered throughout the song. Jonny Lang lends his voice to an original, "Groundhog Day," evoking get-down and boogie rock and roll emotions reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or the Black Crowes. Dr. John and Willie Nelson pitch in for the closing track, "Baby, There's No One Like You." These are just SOME of the highlights of this album. Treat yourself to a copy and try not to wear your CD player out with all of the other great songs. No, this isn't a Stevie Ray Vaughan album. This is a Double Trouble album, filled to the brim with quality songs and performances. Tommy and Chris share writing credits on many of the songs and follow it up with superb execution and performance. This CD should silence critics and perhaps be the first in a long line of great recordings to come from this dynamic duo!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good album, but not SRV February 10, 2001
Format:Audio CD
For those of you who, like me, scoop up anything and everything that is related to Stevie Ray Vaughan, be warned: The music on this album is NOT reminiscent of SRV's. In fact, there is hardly a trace of the Texas blues that was the core of SRV's vast repertoire. It is, however, a very good album with a variety of blues styles from traditional electric blues (e.g. Muddy Waters) to the more recent style of blues rock.
In its own way, Been A Long Time is a touching tribute to SRV, not because of the songs, but rather because of the cast of musicians who played with or were influenced by SRV. It is, of course, moving to hear Stevie's older brother (and biggest influence), Jimmie, play with Stevie's old back-up band on the fantastic song "In the Middle of the Night." But what makes the song even more special is the fact that Jimmie performed it as a duet with Lou Ann Barton, who was the lead singer in the first band SRV formed, Triple Threat. (When Lou Ann left the band, SRV changed the band's name to Double Trouble and took over the lead singing job himself.) Rounding out the SRV alumni reunion, former Double Trouble keyboardist Reese Wynans also appears on a couple of songs on the album. And for good measure, also featured prominently on the album is singer/guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, the son of Doyle Bramhall, Sr., who literally taught Stevie how to sing.
The album also features a terrific soulful song fronted by the legendary Dr. John, who played often with SRV, most notably at SRV's Carnegie Hall concert. Willie Nelson, who recently released his own blues collaboration album, provides a guitar solo in this piece, entitled "Baby, There's No One Like You.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Achievement! - Buy this CD!! February 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This is an incredibly well done album. With all due respect to the other Amazon customers that have criticized this album, you all are missing the point. This recording represents a new chapter in their musical journey, and should not be compared to the great work done with SRV. SRV was a once in a lifetime phenomenon. Double Trouble has shown that they are not resting on their past successes, but moving forward musically. You may not realize it, but Double Trouble did all the writing, recording, and producing of this CD without a record contract. These guys believed in what they were doing, and put up their own money to finance this record. There are not many other artists out there of the caliber of Double Trouble making such a bold move. Sky Cry and In The Garden are two of the most heartfelt songs that I have heard in a long time. The vocal performances of Malford Milligan, Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhall, Johnny Lang, and Susan Tedeschi are world class. The great musicianship of every artist is enhanced due to the role that Double Trouble plays so well, that of one of the greatest rhythm sections of all time. So, let's get past comparing this record to their illustrious past, but instead, view it as a great achievement for them as well as the beginning of the rest of their musical career. God Bless Double Trouble and all of their great musical partners and friends! Buy this CD - it is fantastic!!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is great music April 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled across this CD at my local library about a year ago. I have 2 SRV&DT CDs, so I thought "What the heck?" I expected raw blues like SRV but I got a pleasant surprise. So after renewing it twice, I thought I better buy it. It is great blues ("In The Middle of the Night" with vocals by Jimmie Vaughan, Stevie's brother), funk ("Ground Hog Day" with vocals by Johnny Lang), Rock and Roll ("Rock and Roll" with killer vocals by Susan Tedeschi--better than the original Led Zeppelin version), another rocker "Say One Thing" with vocals and a great guitar solo by Doyle Bramhall II), ballads ("In The Garden" with Susan T. again on vocals), and my two favorites sung by Malford Mulligan, "Cry Sky" and the incredible "Skyscraper." But the two stars of the show are the ones you never hear vocally--Chris Layton and Tommy Shannon. These are two of the most incredible musicians I have ever heard. There are musicians that have alot of flash, but these guys are just plain tight. The bass never sounds muddy and the drums are always just right--never too skimpy, never too much. I hope these guys continue making records--whether it is with guest stars like this CD, or if they go ahead and get a permanent singer, guitarist, and keyboard player. Stevie is gone and is sorely missed, but long live Double Trouble!
