STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN
AND DOUBLE TROUBLE
At Last: Mobile Fidelity delivers the definitive-sounding edition of this searing 1983 debut album.
A debut seemingly sent from the musical heavens, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's Texas Flood announces the arrival of a truly special talent — namely, the last major blues guitarist to emerge with a voice all his own, an immediately distinctive style, and a soulfulness that you feel inside the depths of your existence. Not for nothing was Vaughan frequently mentioned in the same breath as his closest musical cousin, Jimi Hendrix.
This Hybrid SACD Mastered from the original tapes, drenched with tremendous microdynamics and natural tonality.
Having dropped from a quintet to a trio, extra demands were placed on Vaughan's role and playing-requirements he was more than comfortable to accommodate. The proof is scattered throughout Texas Flood, which single-handedly resuscitated a genre that had long been dormant. Having spent more than half a year on the Billboard charts, the set pays homage to influences (Hendrix, Albert King, Larry Davis) and ripples with a freshness that joins contemporary Texas blues and muscular rock at the hip. Vaughan's playing is all about emotion and pace, whether he's lighting it up on the jumpy Love Struck Baby or bursting with enthusiasm on the sparks-shooting Pride and Joy.
This historic album is presented in the Super Audio Compact Disc format, which contains a CD layer and ultra-high resolution layer of music. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab transferred the original analog master tapes using the critically acclaimed GAIN 2TM System.
