5.0 out of 5 stars Not Too Shabby! July 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alright now, Im diggin it! Im a big JV fan, love his sound and style, and here it is in spades. This album has possibly the best sound of any of his ablums so far. Sounds real off the cuff and live, in a good way. Very raw, bright and loose. The horn section is hot, the rhythms are "butt-rockin"! and of course the guitar is a hot wire putting electricity to the whole thing, although his tone is not quite as overdriven or up-front in the mix as on his other albums, probably due to his recent switch to flatwound strings, but still sounds pretty badass just the same! Lou Ann Barton even duets on a couple tunes, the whole band sounds great and the production is really first take sounding, and thats a good thing!
I read in some magazine that Jimmie recorded this like a grouping of singles, one or two tracks here, a track there, A Side / B Side, all in Austin, just like they used to do it in the good ol days. That approach is likely why it all sounds so vibrant and energetic. It definitely puts you in a smokey old barroom somewhere out there when you close your eyes. Sounds you'd hear suckin down a few brews in some greazy little bowling alley, feelin good!
These are all covers of old heroes like Roscoe Gordon, Roy Milton, even Willie Nelson, and of course theres a nod to lucky charm Jimmy Reed, and 1 original Vaughan instrumental, "Comin and Goin".
If you like Jimmie Vaughan youll dig this, hell you probably already got it. If youre just figuring things out, this is as good as any place to start, with the exception of "The Essential Jimmie Vaughan" which has a little of everything on it.
Highly recommended, show some support for one of the last true Texas Bluesmen left!

5.0 out of 5 stars He Just Keeps Getting Better August 3, 2010
By a.c.
Format:Audio CD
There are some really great guitar players out there but nobody lays out R&B cool like Jimmie Vaughan. His "less is more" approach, combined with great material, a crack band, Lou Ann Barton, and crisp, swinging arrangements make this an album that you'll want to hear again and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Guitar Great Delivers a Great Record July 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This CD is GREAT. The music makes you happy to be alive and thankful for musicians that can deliver the goods with soul, elegance and style. Yes, it's the blues, but you'll smile through the entire album. As soon as it's over, you'll want to play it all over again. Thank you Jimmie for carrying on the tradition of the blues into an age that surely needs it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Something old, something new October 27, 2010
By Sam
Format:Audio CD
This album has a little of everything, as the title might suggest. Some more traditional JV Blues stuff, some Ballads, some forays into a more Country Blues style...all featuring the signature guitar style of Jimmie Vaughan.

JV's guitar playing is as unique as it has ever been. His phrases are expressive and clear. He is a master at making notes provoke feelings and puts a great value on each individual note that he plays. If you are expecting SRV, you will be a bit thrown off. Jimmie is his own guitar player with his own style that is wonderful for its own merits.

I've never been a huge Lou Ann Barton fan but her vocals do add another dimension to the songs she guests on. I think people who are into the country-blues style will enjoy these tracks a lot.

This is a cool album with a lot of variety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Throwback Record September 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I just saw Jimmie Saturday night, 9/11/10, and just bought this one today, only three days later. After one spin I can only say that's its great stuff; I'm already playing it again. It was recorded in Austin and produced by Jimmie, and it's the same great Texas swing that I heard Saturday night, I recognize a lot of the tunes. If you're in the mood for some authentic Southern soul influenced R&B, go get this record RIGHT NOW. There is only one original tune here, Vaughan's instrumental "Comin' and Goin'", and it is the hottest tune on the record. Very much of a 1950's sound to the record. NO ONE is making records like this one any more; if they are, someone better tell me about it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jimmie's Best? July 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Happy, relaxed and impeccably produced, this is one of the most satisfying follow up albums I've ever bought after seeing a band live. Jimmie, Lou Ann Barton and Tilt-A-Whirl, with an emphasis on sax over keyboard, put on a fantastic show a few months ago in Orlando and followed it up with this instant classic.

Although I still give "Do You Get the Blues" my favorite JV CD by a nose, this is really just as good. To complete my JV must list, don't forget about the less known "Strange Pleasure." In a music world now based on single song downloads, there's not a weak track on any of the three disks.

Friends and family are getting their Xmas presents early this year. I can't wait that long to share the joy of this new, fabulous Texas blues/swing collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars JL Vaughan = National Treasure August 19, 2011
Format:Audio CD
i have been listening to this dude since 1979. the t-birds "girls go wild" changed my life forever. i regard that album as the most important blues album of the last 40 years.

through the 80s his band peaked but the formula that had propelled them to commercial success-- especially the diamond-sharp and polished "tuff enuf" album basically played itself out. strangely-- or perhaps predictably-- that album, for all it's commercial success, doesn't capture the imagination or have the staying power of "girls go wild."

his album "family style" with his brother stevie ray-- who revered his older brother (quote from the album "live alive"'s fadeout on the cut "look at little sister": jimmie lee.... he'll get you every time" sums it up)-- where was i? oh-- his album with his brother stevie ray showed so much promise and power it is utterly tragic that they could not have worked together further.

but from the ashes jimmie vaughan has not merely persevered-- he has done something quite rare in music-- HE HAS GROWN AS AN ARTIST.

how he does it is really cool in a retro/going back in time fashion: he is (1) a reductionist both in terms of personal guitar styling and (2) production values and (3) genre selection.

1) he has more or less abandoned playing with a pick and plays with his thumb and fingertips. (this started with his hammond b-3 organ-based trio (extended) material in the 90s and the early 2000s.) this makes for a "plinkier" guitar tone with less sustain. the sound is more authentic and "naked" and forces him to play with even greater timing, space, and restraint. just a guess but he backs off the volume on the guitar to 7 or thereabouts as well.

I think JImmie needs to stick to what he knows best. He is really good at the more contemporary side of blues but covering other artists is not his forte.

This music doesnt sound like a tribute. Its the real thing. Although its totally based in the mid 20th century it sounds vital. I love it.
