Import Reviews


If you like the El-Mocambo DVD, you will enjoy this show. This is the audio version of the show. I would highly recommend this show as an excellent example of an early Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble show.

Front Row Center Show #18

I really don't know anything about this show (where, when, setlist, etc), but I can tell you that it is one of the best recordings that I have ever gotten in a trade. It was one of those unusual trades I made. But the sound quality of this show is so good that I am glad I made the trade.

Force of Nature II

I have to say that I was very disappointed with this 2 CD set. Although this 2 CD set was recommended to me by some members of the Texasflood as being a very good SRV show, I found that almost all of SRV's vocals to be washed out. I can barely understand a single word that Stevie is singing.

Fly on Little Wing

This CD contains a compilation of artists playing the Jimi Hendrix song "Little Wing". While I really enjoy Stevie Ray Vaughan's version of "Little Wing" I am not a huge fan of Jimi Hendrix, so this CD sits on the shelf for long periods of time not being played.

The sound quality of this CD varies from song to song since it is a collection from a variety of shows. But as a general rule the quality is good. If you are a big fan of Jimi Hendrix and the people who have covered him then you will want this CD. There are also two tracks with Eric Clapton and Carlos Santana playing Little Wing.

Force of Nature

This is one of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's early shows (Oct 14, 1981). The show includes a lot of traditional blues songs, such as Close To You, Tell Me, Let Me Love You, Shake For Me, and Hideway. Of course these are all played SRV way! There are also a number of hallmark SRV & DT songs on this CD, including: Texas Flood, Rude Mood, The Sky is Crying, Pride and Joy, and Love Struck Baby.

The mix on this show is very good. You can clearly hear SRV voice and the mix of the instruments is pretty clear.
