5.0 out of 5 stars What a tragedy there was no second album 3 April 2008
Format:Audio CD
I love this album but it has bittersweet connotations: Stevie Ray had passed on by the time it was released. God only knows how big brother Jimmie felt....

It wasn't perhaps the album which was expected. The brothers deliberately avoided material similar to Stevie Ray's 'In Step', apart from the sublime 'Tick-Tock' which was a late addition. The material is upbeat in tone yet with Stevie Ray's intense playing shining through the deep grooves which came courtesy of a great rhythm section who were directed by producer Nile Rodgers.

The other surprise was the vocal debut of Jimmie Vaughan. And he sounds good! 'White Boots' is no-one's idea of a classic song - even the Fabulous Thunderbirds, then at their peak as a blues-free blues band, declined to record it but it works well, not least because of Stevie's fine solo.

The instrumental 'Hillbillies From Outerspace' (I believe that the title was Jimmie's 'blueprint' for the album) contains another welcome first: Jimmie's lap steel playing. Very funky and understated, it is more like the renowned organists Booker T or Jimmy Smith rather than Hawaaian- or country influenced. And Stevie plays another excellent solo.

I recommend this highly if you own any of the work of The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jimmie Vaughan's solo debut or any of Stevie Ray's albums. As the title of my review says, it's tragic that there was no follow-up album. I feel that it would have been a deeper work. If I try, I can almost hear it....

5.0 out of 5 stars TOO LITTLE TOO LATE<BUT ABSOLUTELY GREAT 28 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
For me this is SRV's best ever album,along with brother Jimmy they produce a heady mix of blues,rock,rockabilly and soul in one truly enjoyable release.To hear the two of them trading guitar duties together makes you so sorry this was their only album together.SRV was a guitar legend,but Jimmy is every bit his equal and more,he continues to produce great CD's just get a listen to them.It's not a long album,it leaves you wanting more but it's totally satisfying and definitely not to be missed at any price.
Not only do they play guitar so well,but both have good voices as well.The instrumental tracks maybe not what you expect,but they are very very good indeed. Just one album together but it's legendary stuff,no one should miss out on one of rock blues totally classic albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Say what? 19 July 2010
Format:Audio CD
When I saw this album had an average rating of 3 stars, I couldn't believe it! The brothers lay down some tight grooves on this album and both share the spotlight for some fierce, muscular soloing.

Personally, I like this album MORE than a regular SRV album because it's just more varied and well-rounded.

Top picks: "Hard to be", "DFW", "Long way from home", "Mama said" but actually there's not a single clunker on this record. I shall be enjoying this album for many years to come!
