I own many SRV CDs but needed this one to have in my car at all times. Some of his best music is on this CD and it is great to have it handy on one CD. If you own a collection of SRV music this is not really needed unless you want a travel CD like I do. I find it necessary to have one. I mourn for him every time I play this CD and find it difficult to accept the fact that we will never hear the music we could have had if he had not left us so young. And I am grateful for the the music he did leave for us to enjoy.

This new compilation, when purchased together with "The Real Deal, Vol.2", provides newcomers to SRV a nice overview of his all too brief career. There was a "Greatest Hits" album released in 1995 which is way inferior to this release. Personally, I'm not a fan of greatest hits or best of compilations, and usually will only purchase them if I don't know much about the artist and want to get a sample of their music. So, if you aren't familiar with Stevie or are on a budget, by all means get this CD as every song on it is essential. But after hearing this, you will want to go out and get everything he ever recorded. I have all of his discs and couldn't imagine being without any of them. To me, SRV was the greatest guitar player to have ever graced us with his presence.

STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN & DOUBLE TROUBLE-THE REAL DEAL/GREATEST HITS: Stevie "Rave On" was the celebrated Texas six stringer who almost single-handedly spearheaded a blooze-rock revival in the eighties, assisted by older bro JIMMIE's band THE FABULOUS THUNDERBIRDS and soul man ROBERT CRAY. In sharp contrast to 1995's GREATEST HITS, a mediocre career spanner, THE REAL DEAL is an aptly named package worthy of the smokin' legacy. Standout ripsnorters spotlighted here include originals PRIDE AND JOY and THE HOUSE IS ROCKIN', while he carves out a slinky, "after hours" side via passionate covers of TIN PAN ALLEY and ELMORE JAMES' THE SKY IS CRYING. Obvious inspiration JIMI HENDRIX's signature jam VOODOO CHILE, which sounded so fresh and vibrant all over again in VAUGHAN's capable mitts, somehow goes missing in this otherwise fine collection. Like the Seattle slasher, SRV crashed and burned far too early, but the roots rich catalogue he left as his epitaph will serve as a template for generations of guitar slingers to come.

I must admit, I had not heard SRV's music until I watched a PBS special on him recently and was knocked out by the passion, musicianship and the type of music he played. It happens to be right up my alley. This CD, of course, is a must if you're into his music, I have also been renting his concert DVD's from Netflix which I enjoy tremendously. It is truly tragic that such talent is lost at their prime, and now if you would excuse me< I have a lot of great musci to catch up on.

“The Real Deal, Voulmes I & II” are a great introduction to SRV’s music for the uninitiated. If you, like me, were too busy listening to New Wave and hair bands in the 80s, you may have missed the rise of the greatest blues guitarist of his generation. Much of what you missed is right here, at a reasonable price.

These comprehensive collections include all of SRV’s familiar hits as well as an eclectic gathering of other esoteric favorites know to more seasoned fans, including live cuts such as his cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition,” studio versions from his original albums, and some music from the posthumously-released “The Sky is Crying."

SRV was one of the greatest blues/rock guitarists of our time, a huge talent whose potential was cut short way too soon. “The Real Deal, Volumes I & II” are a great place to start for those who are not completely familiar with Stevie Ray Vaughan, as well as being perfect for the more seasoned fan wanting a neat summary of his music. I bought these to keep in my car. The original albums stay in my house. Definitely also buy both discs, as the two volumes do not go chronologically, so you can’t pick and choose early career over later. You don’t want to be without both, or you will be missing half the picture. These CDs are exactly what my collection needed.

Excellent from beginning to end!!! It contains 16 great songs,including a live recording from Carnegie Hall - "The Sky is Crying". This volume contains many of his hits, such as "Pride & Joy", "Mary had a Little Lamb", "Texas Flood", "Couldn't Stand the Weather", "Tin Pan Alley", "The House is Rockin", and many others. This is a great album cd, and I recommend it. Thanks!!!

Fell in love with his music when I saw him perform in a concert on PBS public television. The CD's 1 and 2 have everything you would want from Stevie Ray. So, so sad that we lost this incredible talent in 1990 to a helicopter crash. Hard core electric blues.

I think that anyone who is familiar with blues and rock blues recording artists and who openly and honestly listens to The Real Deal Greatest Hits 1 would have to proclaim that STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN IS THE VERY BEST BLUES OR ROCK BLUES GUITARIST WHO EVER LIVED! So much for such fabulous guitar players like Freddie King, Eric Clapton, Alvin Lee, Ronnie Earl, or Jimmy Thackery. So much for Joe Bonamassa and the other "next Stevie Ray Vaughans." No one, and I mean no one, is or was as talented a blues or rock blues guitarist as was the one and only Stevie Ray Vaughan! He was also blessed with what could be said to be a very cool rock blues voice. So if you want to hear much of Stevie Ray's very best guitar playing and also hear alot of his very cool rock blues vocals, I strongly recommend that you immediately purchase and much enjoy Real Deal Greatest Hits 1. This is a MUST BUY cd for every rock blues fan who does not already own all of the Stevie Ray Vaughan cds from which all of the songs on Real Deal Greatest Hits 1 were chosen.

John
