5.0 out of 5 stars A Slice of Heaven September 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I had heard the name Stevie Ray Vaughan a lot, and I believe I had heard one or two songs on the radio, but for some odd reason, I never really heard his music until a little while after his passing. Then, in 1991, I got a job with a blues band in Dallas playing piano and organ. Stevie's from Oak Cliff - a section of Dallas. I love playing blues, because when the band members listen to each other, things fall together. It has a lot of similarities to jazz that way. So, it tuned out that many of the songs started by the guitarist (who had known Stevie and was excellent in his own right), were SRV songs. A joy to play. During breaks, customers would play the jukebox, and that was the time I wanted to unwind in. It seems like every break, someone's quarter went to selecting this long, absolutely beautiful, slow 6/8 instrumental. I could literally feel stress evaporating from my body. I found myself going into a meditative state, just smiling and feeling total relaxation. It wasn't like any new age massage music, though... it had grit. I later found out that it was Riviera Paradise by Stevie Ray. Wow! A twelve minute cure for what ails you... with all the grit & beauty; the bittersweet quality of life itself.
I love all of Stevie's upbeat rockers with his satisfyingly fluid guitar work that flows like a river with a mission. This particular album, which expresses many things he had learned while struggling with the addictions of show biz fast lane life, is perfection. There's an understanding of life well lived that oozes through the most down to earth blues feelings you can find. And when Riviera Paradise comes on, it literally transports you to a place of receptiveness...

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, although it's not his best June 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
"In Step" is often cited by critics as Stevie Ray Vaughan's best studio album. And his playing on this album is actually a bit more economical, maybe even a bit more mannered, than on his earlier releases...whether or not that's a good thing is a matter of taste, I suppose.

The production is a bit more slick than usual as well, the tone of Vaughan's guitar is cleaner, and a keyboard player and occational horns have been added to the mix, but that's not to say that Stevie Ray Vaughan had gotten soft on his final solo album before his tragic death in 1990 - he just turned a little bit more towards rock rather than blues.

"In Step" opens with a blistering rocker, "The House Is Rockin'", followed by the bluesy "Crossfire", which features a superb solo by Vaughan.
"Tightrope" ventures into hard rock territory, but Stevie Ray's cover of Willie Dixon's "Let Me Love You Baby" is genuine blues-rock, and it is followed by a good reading of Buddy Guy's slow, tortured blues "Leave My Girl Alone". Vaughan didn't quite have the pipes to match the intensity of Guy's original, but he does a fine job with what he has, and the guitar playing is superb as usual.

"Travis Walk" is a funky, up-tempo instrumental with some great drumming by Chris Layton (who, incidentally, used to play drums for Buddy Guy and Lightnin' Hopkins). "Wall Of Denial" is pretty well known, but it is perhaps one of the lesser tracks on this album, with some fine guitar playing but not much in the way of either hooks or a real "groove" to grab a hold of the listener.

"Scratch n' Sniff", however, is a fine up-tempo rock song with some excellent boogie piano fills by keyboardist Reese Wynans, and a great solo by Vaughan.

5.0 out of 5 stars life without stevie December 7, 1999
Format:Audio CD
everytime i hear the live recording on life without you i get all choked up. stevie played every note from some other source, he had a superhuman quality to channel emotion into a piece of wood and strings to produce the most incredible music ever played... the blues. stevie was the modern ambassador of the blues, and he brought it home to me, especially through this album. thanks Stevie.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you can only have one SRV CD, this is IT! October 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm embarrassed to admit that the first time I heard Stevie Ray Vaughan, I had my eyes closed "watching" MTV before they found reality shows more popular. He was alone, lip-synching something in garish lighting, but the song was HOT. I was fortunate enough that when this album was released, Stevie and Double Trouble promoted it in its entirety at the Arizona State Fair "in the round". People from five years old to 70 were rocking to the music; in my experience, only an Elvis Presley concert crowd matched this crowd's reaction. Stevie got a standing ovation for "Leave My Girl Alone". When I later got the album, I realized he sounded in concert as right-on as he did on the album. I have other of his CDs now but this is the best. Eric Clapton has said he didn't know where those hot licks of Stevie's came from (high praise); B. B. King said Stevie was "one of his children"; the producer of Austin City Limits on PBS said Stevie's concerts (old repeats) are the most requested. For the uninitiated. buy this CD, and you will find out why.

Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble's In Step (1989) finds SRV clean and sober yet still as intense and powerful as ever. Sadly, this would be their last album as Stevie was tragically killed in a helicopter crash one year after In Step was released. On October 3, 2008, Stevie Ray Vaughan would have been fifty four years old.

In Step is a very good album with several great songs on it. It features more rock and funky soul music than straight up blues, and that's OK with me even though I love the blues. Stevie's singing is as impassioned here as it ever has been, and his guitar work is spectacular as ever. He does include some traditional blues, most notably his SRV slow blues treatment of Buddy Guy's Leave My Girl Alone. It's no Texas Flood, but if you lean your head back and close your eyes, it will get you to where you want the blues to take you. He does a romp n' rockin' version of Willie Dixon's Let Me Love You Baby and this ripping cover of Howlin' Wolf's Love Me Darlin' sounds like something out of fellow Texas bluesman Johnny Winter's playbook.

Crossfire is the big winner on the album. It's a soulful and rockin' tune that includes a horn section and sounds like bluesy soul music with a powerful blues/rock electric guitar. It's a lonely plea for help from a disillusioned soul who has been left to fend for himself in a world full of greed and thoughtlessness.
