Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Stevie's monster chops, huge sound and deep soul won adoration from rock fans and blues stars around the world, all of whom will want to pick up this long-awaited boxed set: 18 live and studio tracks plus 36 unissued recordings (VERY early stuff plus live versions of Cold Shot; Lovestruck Baby; Crossfire; The Sky Is Crying; Tightrope , and more) including a whole DVD of never-aired Austin City Limits performances! Over four hours of the late, great SRV on 3 CDs plus a 72-page book.

Amazon.com

This career-spanning box of three CDs and a DVD celebrates a legacy that looms larger than that of any blues-rocking guitarist since Jimi Hendrix. Despite fears that a series of posthumous releases had depleted the Stevie Ray Vaughan vaults, previously unreleased gems dominate the selection. Highlights extend from Vaughan's swaggering apprenticeship with Paul Ray and the Cobras to slash-and-burn concert performances from the final month of his life. There are obligatory dips into the songbooks of Hendrix and Buddy Guy, appearances on MTV Unplugged and Austin City Limits, and instrumental interplay with brother Jimmie Vaughan and tourmate Jeff Beck. Though his guitar never loses its flamethrower intensity, the set documents his progression from the showoff licks of the young "Stevie Rave On" into a fully rounded artistry of soulful depth. --Don McLeese

4.0 out of 5 stars Have you heard? What the word? A THUNDERBIRD December 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Well it is finally here. The much anticipated Stevie Ray Vaughan box set. For most SRV fans, this will be a satisfying set. Of course some of us would like to have seen much more unreleased material included and less of the album version stuff. But we all know the powers that be had to appeal not just to us SRV freaks but to the casual listener as well. No problem. I think this box set offers a nice balance for all. Tracks run in chronological order beginning in 1977 with only one cut from the Cobras days (I wish there were more) and ends on disc three with a few tunes from the second to last show in Alpine Valley.
More than half of the material is officially previously unreleased and is high quality live and outtake material. Many of the great live tracks like the Timothy White show version of "Dirty Pool" and the MTV tracks are here too. These will be a great surprise for those that haven't heard them before. The live cuts are from some of the best shows like Montreux (even a little of the booing after Texas Flood is there), Houston, Austin, Philadelphia, New Mexico, Alpine Valley, etc.; though I am surprised none of the excellent Tokyo, Japan 1985 show is included. In addition, there are a few cuts of other artists on whose albums Stevie Ray appeared.
For the hard-core collector you probably already have almost everything. However, the good news is that the quality on these discs blows away anything you most likely have on a boot. The fourth disc is a thirty or so minute DVD with five never-aired and never-issued performances from the television program Austin City Limits, recorded on October 10, 1989. I am not sure why these five tunes were cut from the commercial DVD release but I guess it might be because he broke a string on a tune or two during the performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A guitar legend gets his due December 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Following last years excellent reissues of his four original studio albums comes this devestating box set of Stevie Ray Vaughn in his natural environment, the stage. Of the 49 tracks that are included here, more than have of which have never been commercially released before, it makes you wonder what they left off. What's here is simply amazing, including performances with his mentor Albert King, to Jeff Beck, Lonnie Mack, and Johnny Copeland. There are also tracks from the rarely seen MTV Unplugged program he did in 1990. There are essays and quotes in the book from fellow musicians and admirers like Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Carlos Santana, Robert Cray, and even Stevie's guitar tech Rene Martinez talks about how Stevie got his amazing guitar tone. The icing on the cake is the DVD that's included in the box. Five songs that were cut from the appearance that SRV and Double Trouble made on Austin City Limits in 1989, incredible stuff!!! For fans that have bootlegs of some of tracks included here, the sound quality of whats on the box as well as the other rarities included here make this set worth picking up. One of the best of 2000.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, a box set worth listening to! November 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
What a pleasant surprise this box set is. Normally, a box set is a repackaging of the same old music that can be found on an artist's original cd's. Although there are some of the songs found on Stevie's previous cd's, there are a surprising number of new songs, as well as old songs recorded live from his concerts and TV and radio performances. The previously unreleased songs are so full of soul, that they are a true pleasure to listen to. "Thunderbird", the first song on the first cd of this three cd set, simply rips, and sets the tone for the entire set. The book that comes along with the set tells when and where each song was recorded, and is filled with quotes from Eric Clapton, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana and David Bowie, to name a few. There are dozens of new photographs, and a lengthy biography and Quotes from Stevie. A DVD of five previously unreleased songs performed by Stevie for the TV show "Austin City Limits" nicely rounds out this gem of a box set. Nothing has been overlooked. If you are a Stevie Ray Vaughan freak...Rush out tonight and buy this set. If you've heard of Stevie Ray Vaughan and his amazing guitarmanship, but never have bought one of his cd's...Rush out tonight and buy this set. If you've never heard of Stevie Ray Vaughan...Crawl out from under your rock and RUSH OUT TONIGHT AND BUY THIS SET!! Thank you Jimmie Vaughan and Epic Records from the bottom of my heart!

5.0 out of 5 stars SRV - BOX SET November 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a great box set for SRV fans and people who are new to SRV music. This is what all box sets should be, the set has three CDs and one 30 min DVD of SRV & Double Trouble on Austin City Limits.
The music on the CD starts with SRV first recording with Paul Ray & The Cobras to his final concert at Alpine Valley. The CD has rare live performances of songs that were never released on an album, solo guitar by SRV and studio out-takes.
The DVD has an un-aired performance of SRV & Double Trouble on PBS's Austin City Limits, the DVD itself is worth the price of the box set. Stevie and the band were in great form!
There are essays and quotations from other Blues such as B.B. King and Eric Clapton, and there a lots of great pictures in a great package.
