Editorial Reviews

The blues-rock guitar hero's studio vaults were nearly empty when he died in an August 27, 1990, helicopter crash. This set unearths a 1978 Austin session track of "You Can Have My Husband" with Vaughan as second fiddle to his then girlfriend, singer Lou Ann Barton, but it's undistinguished compared to the previously unreleased live performances that compose this disc's heart. Vaughan contributes teeth-baring pentatonic solos to Lonnie Mack's "Oreo Cookie Blues" at Atlanta's Fox Theatre in 1986 and brings his bullish tone to the late blues piano stomper Katie Webster's "On the Run" at the 1988 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Bonnie Raitt's distinctively keening slide adds elegance to a "Texas Flood" from Bumbershoot 1985 in Seattle, and when Stevie's older sibling Jimmie Vaughan stops by Saturday Night Live to play rhythm on a 1985 "Change It," li'l bro' squeezes out screaming fireworks. But the best cut's a breathtaking '88 Jazz Fest slugfest with Texas Telecaster blaster Albert Collins that's jammed with howling, shaken notes and machine-gun riffing. Both are in top form. The rest is culled from Vaughan's guest appearances on others' releases or previous retrospectives and include matches with blues godfathers B.B. King and Albert King, as well as Johnny Copeland and A.C. Reed, Jeff Beck, Austin barrelhouser Marcia Ball, surf guitar king Dick Dale, and David Bowie, whose "Let's Dance" introduced Vaughan to the mainstream in 1983. --Ted Drozdowski

4.0 out of 5 stars Is It Really That Bad? December 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Judging from the spate of negative reviews posted here, you would think that Solos, Sessions and Encores is the biggest piece of musical garbage to be released since Justin Timberlake's latest CD. But if you read closely, what you'll find is that most reviewers are just mad that the record company is squeezing yet more profit from the storied legacy of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Listen closely to the CD then ask yourself "Is it really that bad?".
I own just a half-dozen or so SRV CDs, so in no way could you call me a completeist. I saw him play in San Antonio before the release of Texas Flood brought him national then international fame, so I am not at all a newcomer to his sound. I followed him religiously for a while but then after his untimely death I kind of lost track of what was issued in his name. I was attracted to this when I saw it on sale partially because of the price, and partially because of who he appears with. Also, I did not yet own any of the songs except Marcia Ball's Soulful Dress. It took me only a couple listens to decide that this was money well spent.
If this recording was made by anyone but SRV, I have a feeling that the ratings would be skewed in a more positive direction. There is some great music here including five out of the six songs that the record company claims are previously unreleased. If you like the blues, you should enjoy this regardless of your feelings about the profit motive. My favorites are: The Sky Is Crying, On the Run, Albert's Shuffle, Change It, a live Texas Flood, and a magnificent Pipeline. About the only ones I don't care for are the silly Oreo Cookie Blues (which is not one of the better Lonnie Mack compositions) and the awful disco of Let's Dance, which served to remind me why I was never into David Bowie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not As Bad As The Ratings Show December 13, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I was shocked to see how few stars this product has received. I purchased it myself through amazon a little while back before there were the reviews, and when I came back to see what people had reviewed, I was amazed that the average review was 2 stars. While this certainly is not the best collection of Stevie Ray Vaughan material, it certainly is not as bad as the reviews make it out to be.

I also have to disagree with many people who say it's bad because it's the record companies cashing in... while this maybe be more or less true, it's still a decent collection of some hard to find (and great) material. I've read that many people said they already had half these songs... Not every music fan has the entire Stevie Ray Vaughan catalog... hell, I have all of his studio albums and some unofficial bootlegs, and I still only had about 3 or 4 songs out of the whole album already in my collection. For those of us that are fans of his music, you will enjoy this album. Especially if you want to hear how he interracts with other guitarists and musicians.

My personal favorite cuts would be The Sky Is Crying (With Albert King, B.B. King & Paul Butterfield), Goin' Down (with Jeff Beck), Oreo Cookie Blues [Live] (With Lonnie Mack) and Albert's Shuffle (with Albert Collins). It really is a good collection from Stevie's shortlived career, with material as early as 1978, to material as late in his career as 1988.

All in all, a good collection. There are a few tracks that don't really showcase Stevie's playing, that probably could have been better replaced (Let's Dance), but I think the point of this album was to showcase the versatility of the great Stevie Ray Vaughan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just enjoy it February 10, 2008
Format:Audio CD
What is wrong with some of these people? I don't think Stevie Ray is coming out of his grave to put out any new material. Enjoy it for what it is, material from the vault that most people haven't heard. Hendrix stuff has been coming out almost 40 years after his death. Zappa has almost 200 hours of material stashed away. The record companies suck, it's true, but this is for the hardcore fan. Stop bitching. I don't normally post but some of you guys are ridiculous.

4.0 out of 5 stars The only thing shameful... December 16, 2007
By TimC
Format:Audio CD
...about this album are the fickle complaints that this somehow 'pillages' the legacy of SRV (whaaa...?) or that it's only the record label trying to make some cash. (Again - whaaa....?)

Gues what - don't wanna hear it? Don't %$#! buy it. If you really have to ask whether this disc was "necessary," you probably shouldn't have spend the cash on it in the first place, and quite honestly, you're probably a total snob. :(

Guess what else - every label in history that has ever printed music albums has done so only for the purpose of making cash. The record industry only put this together to make money? Sure. The same could be said about Texas Flood or In Step. This is, afterall, a free-market economy.

Don't like the album? Get over yourselves and put it away or don't buy it in the first place. If these songs are so openly available on (illegal) bootlegs, then why did you even buy this disc?

And on that note, just what do you think Stevie Ray would have thought about his 'fans' buying his music on (illegal) pirate-profiteer bootlegs instead of published, official releases? Tisk tisk...

These songs are Stevie's songs...they are decent quality recordings...they were released on CD...yup, everything seems to make sense to me.

Four Stars.
