Product Description

Stevie Ray Vaughan ~ Blues At Sunrise

Amazon.com

A decade after his tragic, untimely demise, electric-blues legend Stevie Ray Vaughan has left behind a void that remains largely unfilled, despite a number of ballyhooed young pretenders. The guitarist's career was long troubled by personal demons, and this album chronicles those deceptively languorous, slow blues jams where Vaughan did battle with them. The howling, fervent tone he coaxed from his instrument was a product of lessons learned only in the School of Hard Knocks, accompanied by a voice--perhaps the most underrated of Vaughan's talents--that perfectly underscored his tortured gospel. But those who stereotyped Vaughan as a paint-by-numbers bluesman misunderstood the breadth of his lexicon; listen to "Chitlins con Carne" (from the guitarist's posthumous The Sky Is Crying album) here and you'll hear tinges of Wes Montgomery and other jazz inflections. Especially notable are three previously unreleased cuts: a live version of "Texas Flood," a 1985 Montreux Jazz Festival duet-jam of "Tin Pan Alley" with the late Johnny Copeland, and an '84 outtake of Elmore James's "The Sky Is Crying"--plus a 15-minute TV-taping workout with Albert King on the elder legend's "Blues at Sunrise." Raw, passionate, and uncompromising, this is SRV at his gut-wrenching best. --Jerry McCulley

The first impression when deciding whether to by this CD or not is "I have all of these tracks already, why should I support Sony/Epic in making more money on previously released material". Once you get by that and you realize that you want all the SRV material available simply for the fact of supporting SRV & DT it makes buying it my easier. Then when you listen to it especially the track Tin Pan Alley with Johnny Copeland and the alternate take of The Sky Is Crying from the album of the same name. You realize the 15-20 bucks you spent was well worth it. Stevie is just a damn good guitar player and just as awsome of a singer. This often gets overshadowed by his playing but on these slow blues tunes you can just hear the emotion coming from his voice. Go get it and add it to your collection.

Some live albums make it, some don't...and then there are the very few that really stand out. Blues at Sunrise "stands out" with the best. I was a SRV fan from the first time I heard Stevie's explosively raw blues guitar work on the title track to "Texas Flood," and Blues at Sunrise is a collection of SRV's best slow blues guitar work. The first cut, "Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love," a SRV composition, sets the tone for this virtuoso journey through time to some dimly lit, smoke-filled, 2 a.m. whiskey bar in Austin, Tx., and, unlike some albums, this one builds on tension and talent right to the end. Here is a testimony to SRV's head on approach to the blues: he attacks some cuts relentlessly (Leave My Girl Alone) while exhibiting a seasoned subtle touch on others (Tin Pan Alley). Every cut is a bona fide winner. The title track, featuring legendary blues man Albert King, will blow you away - it brings back memories of venues such as the Capital Theater and the Fillmores, where live jamming was refined to an artform that never lost its edge. This album is a must for anyone who likes good, slow, live blues! An all around "five star" album.

Hard core SRV fans already own the few rare tracks on this disc, so you don't need it unless you are like me and need to own every release. For new fans this is an excellent first buy that highlights SRV at his best --slow burn blues. This is a fine compilation of one of the greatest guitar player/vocalists in modern blues. I am happy that Sony/Epic and Jimmie are finally releasing cuts only formerly available on boots, but I knocked off a star for the studio material duplication (the studio material has now been re-released four times in the last year alone in one form or another). More rare material could have been included.

Blues, rock, and jazz have seen their share of guitar legends but none could ever come close to Stevie Ray Vaughan. This CD is a compilation of slow blues numbers that were recorded during his accomplished yet all to brief career. Most of the tracks are previously released but there are some unreleased tracks as well. A live performance of "Tin Pan Alley" with Johnny Copeland is very good as is an unreleased take of "The Sky is Crying" which was recorded during the "Couldn't Stand the Weather" sessions. The finest moments on this disc are those that make up the live version of "Texas Flood" which is from the El Macombo concert (which is available on video and DVD). During this performance he plays what is easily his best and most unbelievable solo. The title track with Albert King is near perfection despite some unnecessary chatter from King. The excellent guitar work from both musicians makes up for it. Words cannot express how great the music of Stevie Ray Vaughan is. This CD serves as a welcome addition to the collection of his fans and also a wonderful introduction to those who have yet to experience this blues legend.

This was the SRV album I was waiting for, although I didn't realize I was missing it until I bought it and listened! While I enjoy Stevie's hard-rockin' hits, "Blues at Sunrise" is a powerful reminder of his roots -- the music he first learned to love when he was a little kid imitating his big brother Jimmy on cheap guitars at home in Oak Cliff, Texas. These aren't billboard top-forty hits; the songs on this CD are like a history of the blues. When I first heard his husky tremolo tenor opening the first song, "Ain't Gone 'n' Give Up on Love," chills went up my spine. It's easy to forget how versatile his voice was, since his guitar overshadowed just about everything else within earshot. So many favorites: the wailing macho plaint of "Leave My Girl Alone," that funky Texas wail on "The 'Thaaaaaanngs' [sic] That I Used To Do", the virtuoso guitar imitations of big brother Jimmy Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, and Albert King himself in the live duet of the title song with King (so on-target you can hear Albert laughing with pure delight in the background) ... the jazzy lilt of "Chitlins Con Carne". I have the El Mocambo videotape, and it is sooo nice to hear Stevie's unbelievable solo on "Texas Flood" in true stereo on this CD. OK. You get the picture. Stevie was and is the greatest blues guitarist of the 20th century (and yes, I love BB, Buddy, Luther, and all the rest), and this CD is pure honey to his fans who love to hear him play those blues. RIP, Stevie; you were one of a kind. Thank god we have your music.
