Stevie Ray Vaughan only lived long enough to release four studio albums and one live CD - everything else has come out after his tragic death in a 1990 helicopter accident.
Here on Amazon, every one of those four original albums are accompanied by at least one review stating that THIS is Vaughan's greatest record. And probably by one saying that it is his worst as well.

Oh well. This is Stevie's third album, originally released in October 1985, and for "Soul To Soul", Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble abandoned their original trio format and included keyboardist Reese Wynans and (occationally) saxist Joe Sublett.

The music hasn't changed too much, though. It's still a superb blend of blues and rock, and even though Vaughan's guitar is perhaps a little less prominent on some songs, his playing is still masterful.
The material is very strong, with only one or two lesser tunes - like the forgettable opener "Say What!". "Soul To Soul" is highlighted by the slow blues ballad "Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love", the swinging "Empty Arms" in 2/4 time, and the terrific rockers "Change It", "Lookin' Out The Window" and "Look At Little Sister" (excellent piano playing on that last one, and a nice saxophone solo as well).

Stevie also covers Howlin' Wolf's "You'll Be Mine", and considering that no-one in the world has yet been able to match the vocal power and ferocious attitude of the Wolf, and probably never will, he does a good job with it.

The three bonus tracks consist of a short interview snippet and two songs. Well, three songs, actually, since Vaughan plays a medley of "Third Stone From The Sun" and Hendrix' "Little Wing".

This was one of the records, though decidely offbeat for Stevie, (By this time he was deep into drugs and alcohol abuse) That turned me on to him almost ten years ago now. "Say What!" Is amazing, and "Ain't Gone 'n' Give up On Love" may be one of the best modern recorded slow blues tracks ever. "Look at Little Sister" went on to become a hit and "Come On (Part III)" is absolutely SMOKING and way underrated. Perhaps the track you should most buy this album for, however, is "Life Without You". "Life Without You" is dedicated to Stevie's longtime friend Charlie Wirz who worked on some of Stevie's guitars. Unfortunetly, in remastering, this track was butchered. Stevie's original vocal take (which had been the best ever at this time) has been replaced with another take on which you can tell Stevie is less confident with what he is singing, and, perhaps the worst of all, the last couple of lines of the song are CUT OFF. No, the song does not end early, they are just missing. Everything else (guitar, organ, bass, drums) are all still there as if he should still be singing. Ironically, those last lines 'The angels have waited so long; take your place', were deemed so important by friends, family, and fans, that they are on Stevie's gravestone. Sadly, they are absent in this addition. I have been amazed to read through all these other reviews and not seen this mentioned! This is still a great album, but the spirit of it is NOT intact from the original release. Clearly, SRV and Tommy, Chris, and Reese made a great album regardless of circumstances, but that is a HUGE blemish on what would otherwise be a beautiful work of art.

So, anyone who owned the original CD issue of this album can tell you that the overall sound quality was pretty bad. They couldn't possibly make it any worse and, for the most part, they haven't. However, whoever remixed it either a) accidentally used an alternate vocal track, or, worse b) consciously chose the alternate vocal track for Life Without You. Whether an oversight, or a conscious decision, they totally screwed the pooch on this song. Part of what makes that outro solo so powerful are the last two lines sung by SRV leading into it...without them, the song is ruined. While the sound on the rest of the album is an improvement, you're not getting the original Life Without You. You're getting an alternate take, which, imho, is inferior to the original...even with a brighter mix. To me, the purpose of a remaster is to enhance the sound of the original composition, not to change it and hope no one notices. I can't believe that more folks aren't complaining about the treatment given this song...one of the strongest on, arguably, SRVs weakest album. If they wanted so badly for the market to hear this alt take, it should have been included in the SRV box set...not here, being sold under the guise of remastered original material. Bad form.

With the addition of Reese Wynans on the keyboards the band get a fuller sound & new inspiration. As Reese adds some great keyboard playing to the music it lets Stevie concentrate on his singing a bit more, with very soulful results. Opening with Say What!, an instrumental on which Stevie plays with two wah pedals, the album goes through every song with a renewed passion for the music. Included on this one are songs like Change it & Come on (part III), but all the tracks on the album are great.
