Stevie Ray Vaughan - In Step (Remastered) Review
After Stevie Ray Vaughan and the members of Double Trouble cleaned up from their drug andalchohol problems, SRV & DT put out this explosive CD. More than half of the CD contains memoriable songs,including: Crossfire, Tightrope, Leave My Girl Alone, Wall of Denial, and Riviera Paradise.
The remastered version of In Step contains five new tracks plus the effects from remastering the original CD. The four tracks are SRV Speaks, The House is Rockin' (Live), Let Me Love You Baby (Live),Texas Flood (Live), and Life without You (Live). Each of these new tracks are excellent tracks to include with In Step.I might have picked some other songs from the In Step CD but these are good tracks.
I have read on some newsgroups (and email lists) devoited to Stevie Ray Vaughan that some fans are upset that the new material was not put onto a single new CD. For me this is a non-issue. Sony is a company that wants to make money. I don't begrudge them for this and I don't have a problem with the repackaging and remastering of In Step. I like the fact that they picked material that was from the time frame when In Step was originally released. It should also be noted that it is possible to get this CD for ~$12.00. And in my case I traded in a bunch of CDs I don't listen to for store credit which paid for the remastered In Step.
