Editorial Reviews

Product Description

It's not the familiar, fiery playing of Stevie Ray Vaughan that tips listeners off that this set's first disc has captured an extraordinary moment in modern blues history; it's the jarring, rising chorus of boos that accompanies it. As with previous musicians as disparate as Dylan and Stravinsky, Vaughan's willful tweaking of staid genre conventions initially infuriated purists. Though few could have imagined it at the time, Vaughan and company's July 17, 1982, show at the Montreux Jazz Festival (included here in its entirety) ignited not only a brilliant career, but a widespread revival of the blues as well.

David Bowie was there that night, but he was not booing. He secured the Texas guitarist's services for his smash Let's Dance album on the spot, nearly a year before Vaughan would make his major-label debut.

Straight from the Austin club scene, the band displays their nervous energy in a set that contains several previously unreleased/rare gems from SRV's early repertoire, including the Hound Dog Taylor romp "Give Me Back My Wig." By the time of this set's second disc, recorded just three years later, SRV was a worldwide star, the boos had turned to rousing cheers, and Vaughan's nervousness was replaced by an incendiary swagger he seemed all too happy to push into the crowd's faces. With the band (drummer Chris Layton, bassist Tommy Shannon) now augmented by Reese Wynans on organ and guest guitarist Johnny Copeland sitting in on "Tin Pan Alley," the triumphant show (11 of the 15 songs are included here) centered on the cream of SRV's first three studio albums. While some of these tracks have found their way onto other releases (Live Alive, Blues at Sunrise), the show's "Scuttle Buttin'," "Voodoo Chile," "Gone Home," and "Couldn't Stand the Weather" are released here for the first time. The set's comprehensive liner notes contain new commentary from the band's Shannon and Layton, David Bowie, early confidant Darryl Pitt, and many quotes from the guitar legend himself. All history lessons should be this riveting. --Jerry McCulley

This is a must have for SRV fans.

This recent 2 disk set is another great live release from the vaults by Legacy.
Even through the boos in 1982 he was determined and played his heart out.

This newly released cd is another example of Stevie Ray Vaughan's incredible ability playing live. At the 1982 show, the crowd wasn't being too kind to this unknown (at the time) incredible guitarist's amazing performance, or the effort he put into each and every note - They didn't welcome him from the moment he began his set. Even with the crowd booing him, Stevie still didn't let that affect his playing. He played strongly until the end, and left the stage upset from the little response from the audience and the constant booing.
When he returned in 1985 however, this was completely different. The crowd accepted him and loved him. He once again played another incredible show, this time a lot more confident with a great response from the crowd.
This 2 cd set is awesome for any SRV fan, any guitarist, or as a matter of fact, any body who has the slightest intrest in the blues at all. These cd's are up there with the Live at the El Mocambo show, and shows some of SRV's best live performances. I recommend this 2 disc set very strongly, as a huge SRV fan. Get a hold of it as soon as you can!

This double disc set is a real gem of a live album. It captures the energy of a brand new blues star at his early best on a foreign stage. Despite blistering performances both on several standards and his own compositions audible boos can be heard from the uptight Swiss/French crowd attending. Fortunately for SRV and Double Trouble, also in attendance were none other than David Bowie and Jackson Browne, who immediately realized the raw talent of Stevie Ray.
Vaughan's performance of Hide Away makes Eric Clapton's with the Bluesbrakers appear low voltage by comparison. His ripping performance of Rude Mood highlights his incredible speed with a pick. Pride and Joy, Love Struck Baby, and the novel Give Me Back My Wig are all classic interpretations. Texas Flood, though not quite as resonant or powerful as the incomparable version on Live At El Mocombo, still thrills.
Disc Two captures Stevie's triumphant return. His playing is superb as always as he rips through his standards, adding this time an extended Voodoo Child with a homage to Jimi Hendrix, whom Stevie greatly revered. Life Without You, and the on stage talk with the audience reveals an inner sincerity that he was beginning to reveal to audiences even before he was able to kick his alcohol/drug habit.
The only weak spots on these performances are Dirty Pool in 1982, and Tin Pan Alley in 1985. Both require a good bit of patience to sit through, they are so subdued and lengthy.
Nonetheless, the two disc set adds further to the SRV my opinion, the greatest blues guitarist to ever play. Muddy Waters, B.B., Albert or Freddie King, T-Bone, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, or the new bucks, Kenny Wannabe and Johnny Whathisname, none had/have Stevie's speed with a pick, his guitar's raw power, his passion.

This recent 2 disk set is another great live release from the vaults by Legacy. The first disk contains Stevie Ray Vaughan's first appearance at the Montreux Festival in 1982. The second disk contains a later appearance at the festival in 1985. The set contains nineteen tracks (The songs "Pride And Joy" and "Texas Flood" appear on both disks). The first disk contains an interesting set list with the inclusion of some rarely played (by Vaughan) covers of Freddie King's "Hide Away", Hound Dog Taylor's "Give Me Back My Wig" and Albert Collins' "Collin's Shuffle". The set while short (approximately 42 minutes) provided fans and musicians alike a preview of what Stevie Ray Vaughan was about. He was unsigned at the time of this first performance and while he wasn't a hit with all the fans (some even booed him), he gained the respect of musicians like David Bowie and Jackson Browne who attended this show. The musicians enabled Vaughan to further his career by inviting him to guest on an album (David Bowie) and allowing him free studio time to record what would eventually become his first album (Jackson Browne). Stevie's playing was already developed by this time and is highlighted on the Grammy nominated "Texas Flood" from the "Blues Explosion" compilation album of this festival. Vaughan's slide playing is spotlighted on the aforementioned "Give Me Back My Wig".
The second disk adds organist Reese Wynans to the band to flesh out the sound. The 1985 set is longer and contains the rare cover "Gone Home". Other highlights include the smokin' instrumental openers "Scuttle Buttin'" and "Say What!

Sure, if you're a Stevie Ray fan, you have all of these songs in one or more versions. Some have even appeared on previous CDs, including four songs from the Live Alive release. So, why should you buy this 2 CD set? First, it contains some versions of the songs that have not yet been released, so if you're a completist, you just have to add it to your collection. But, even more importantly, these recordings have been mastered to deliver the best sound quality yet available on any Stevie Ray release, live or studio. All songs sound new and fresh, given the perfect mixing and balancing of the instruments. The guitar sounds crisper and cleaner than ever before. This is a must have for any fan and is certainly the sound quality reference standard for a re-mastered live recording.
