Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This legendary 1983 debut by the fallen torchbearer of the '80s-'90s blues revival sounds even more dramatic in its remixed and expanded edition. Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar and vocals are a bit brighter and more present on this 14-track CD. And the newly included bonus numbers (an incendiary studio version of the slow blues "Tin Pan Alley" that was left off the original release, and live takes of "Testify," "Mary Had a Little Lamb," and the instrumental "Wham!" from a 1983 Hollywood concert) illuminate the raw soul and passion that propelled his artistry even when he was under the spell of drug addiction. Texas Flood captures Vaughan as rockin' blues purist, paying tribute in his inspired six-string diction to his influences Larry Davis (who wrote the title track), Buddy Guy, Albert King, and Jimi Hendrix. His own contemplative "Lenny," a tribute to his wife at the time, also suggests a jazz-fueled complexity that would infuse his later work. --Ted Drozdowski

5.0 out of 5 stars SRV on SACD? June 18, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Plenty of people have written reviews of this album. All I wish to comment on is the quality of the SACD transfer.
I compared the SACD to the original (not the re-mastered) CD of this album, which has been in my collection for many, many years. I had both queued up in two separate players: a Sony DVP-S9000ES for the CD and a Sony SCD-E555ES for the SACD. I used the DACs in the players and used an "analog direct" setup to ensure that no further signal processing occurred. Levels were matched closely enough that we couldn't identify a difference.
With most of the program material we couldn't tell the difference between the two disks. The only difference I noticed with any regularity was a slightly increased sharpness of high transient sounds such as rimshots and cymbals. If there was any difference in guitar, vocals, bass, ambience or spaciousness, we couldn't hear it.
There are other albums that I own both a CD and SACD of where I can identify significant differences. In fact, with the multi-channel SACDs that I've listened to, the sound quality is magnificent. This disk just isn't one of them.
That said, this is one of my all-time favorite albums. This is my third copy (LP, CD and SACD) and even after almost twenty years it gets played frequently. I certainly recommend the album, but I'm not sure it is worth getting in SACD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable debut! July 8, 2000
By Guybert
Format:Audio CD
What an amazing album. "Love Struck Baby" starts it off and is one of their most famous songs. "Testify" is one of the greatest songs Stevie ever did. It shows you his rough, lightning-quick style and why so many became imitators of his playing. "Rude Mood" and "Lenny" are great, but are even better on the Carnegie Hall album for arrangement. "Texas Flood" is a great example of classic blues writing and another favorite of the masses. Plus, the five bonus tracks are great. Some live stuff and even part of an interview Stevie did in 1989, which continues on the other re-issued albums. Since this is the debut album, this is a great place to start a collection. And you will start one if you buy this, believe me.
P.S. Try to watch live recordings of the band, where you get to see the energy they play with. Check reruns of Austin City Limits, or buy one of the many videos released.

5.0 out of 5 stars Q. Tell Me...What in The World Can Be Wrong? March 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A. Absolutely nothing. Holy crap, MOFI outdid themselves on this one. I'm not going to write about the content -- there's enough about this masterpiece all over the web. Suffice it to say, this is the 4th version I've owned of this album: 1) Glorious, fat, juicy vinyl back in the day, 2) first CD iteration in awful early digital 3) Re-release on CD with slightly better sound and some outtakes/"bonus material." 4) This new one from the resurrected and better-than-ever MFSL.

With the possible exception of an original LP pressing on Epic, this is by far the best this album has ever sounded. (My dumb ass, I sold most of my vinyl in the early 90's -- including an MFSL "Abbey Road"!) As an example, on "Texas Flood," instead of just a muddy, murky din in the background, Tommy Shannon's bass has timbre, dynamics, and pace. SRV's guitar in the bridge ***SOARS*** -- every note is there and now you can hear the impact of the pick on the string and the individual strings themselves, not to mention the microtonal differences from his judicious use of bending notes. On "Tell Me," the solo is now composed of distinctive notes, not just a big wall of stinging treble.

I still think that at this price point, one should get slightly nicer packaging, but that's nitpicking. Here's hoping MOFI will get into the business of putting out "Super Deluxe" versions of albums of this stature. I.E. there's no reason why SRV's catalogue shouldn't get the same treatment as exemplified by the recent and super deluxe indeed Super Deluxe version of The Who's "Live at Leeds," of which I was fortunate to get a copy before they were all snapped up.

5.0 out of 5 stars SRV's Stunning Debut June 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Way back in 1983 my brother pulled me aside. His voice was nearly trembling with excitement. "You've GOT to hear this", he said, then he put on "Pride and Joy".

Oh. My. Goodness.

That first album was vinyl and we played the spots off of it. When I enlisted in the Navy later that year I had to get my own copy to carry with me, on cassette. Later, we both had to get the CD versions.

Stevie Ray Vaughan is a musician of immeasurable talent and influence. When "Texas Flood" was released, there hadn't been anything like it heard since Hendrix. His tone on that old beat-up stratocaster was hot and brown. (A brief digression on the "brown" sound - Eddie Van Halen said it was the difference between hitting a block of wood with a hammer and hitting an anvil. If you don't get that - don't bother.)

Texas Flood was a stunning collection of upbeat tunes and instrumentals mixed evenly with hair-raising slow blues. SRV wired that stratocaster with cables, (seriously, his guitar gauges were ridiculously thick), then he bent those strings into tortured notes that hit your eardrum the way a bite of your momma's apple pie hits your tongue or the way Catherine Zeta Jones hits the eye.

The title tune is a slow blues jam with Stevie's great vocals mixed in with his guitar solos scorching sound waves - at times he bends strings up TWO half-frets, choking the life out of that strat. The previously mentioned "Pride and Joy" is more uptempo and everything good about guitar-based Blues can be heard on that track. "Mary Had A Little Lamb" takes several children's nursery rhymes and puts them to the 3-chord miracle that was Double Trouble.
