Format: Audio CD
Stevie Ray Vaughan only lived long enough to release four studio albums and one live CD - everything else has come out after his tragic death in a 1990 helicopter accident.
Here on Amazon, every one of those four original albums are accompanied by at least one review stating that THIS is Vaughan's greatest record. And probably by one saying that it is his worst as well.

Oh well. This is Stevie's third album, originally released in October 1985, and for "Soul To Soul", Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble abandoned their original trio format and included keyboardist Reese Wynans and (occationally) saxist Joe Sublett.

The music hasn't changed too much, though. It's still a superb blend of blues and rock, and even though Vaughan's guitar is perhaps a little less prominent on some songs, his playing is still masterful.
The material is very strong, with only one or two lesser tunes - like the forgettable opener "Say What!". "Soul To Soul" is highlighted by the slow blues ballad "Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love", the swinging "Empty Arms" in 2/4 time, and the terrific rockers "Change It", "Lookin' Out The Window" and "Look At Little Sister" (excellent piano playing on that last one, and a nice saxophone solo as well).

Stevie also covers Howlin' Wolf's "You'll Be Mine", and considering that no-one in the world has yet been able to match the vocal power and ferocious attitude of the Wolf, and probably never will, he does a good job with it.

The three bonus tracks consist of a short interview snippet and two songs. Well, three songs, actually, since Vaughan plays a medley of "Third Stone From The Sun" and Hendrix' "Little Wing".

Format: Audio CD
In my opinion, Soul to Soul is the best thing Stevie Ray Vaughan ever did. It is also the most accessible and relaxing album of his legendary repertoire.
His third and penultimate album (not including post-humous The Sky is Crying), this album ranges from everything from straight-ahead blues to jazz to soul/funk.
My favourite tracks are blues anthem 'Look at Little Sister', distorted rocker 'Change It', excellent cover 'Come On' and sensational ballad 'Life Without You'.
Instrumental opener 'Say What' is a great way to get things started, although it lacks the razor sharp appeal of 'Scuttle Buttin', opening track of Couldn't Stand the Weather.
Although I'll be the first to admit this album does have some obvious filler tracks ('You'll Be Mine'), the non-filler tracks are some of the strongest blues songs ever written, all featuring blisteringly-precise fretwork and flawless rhythm.
In conclusion, this is an album you must own if you have any kind of appreciation for the blues, or guitar music as a whole. Even if you aren't that fond of blues, you should try this as it is undeniable '80s classic.

Format: Audio CD
Soul to Soul represents some of the best of what Stevie Ray had to offer and also a few examples of what could happen when he felt less inspired. On the positive side, it is hard to imagine guitar playing as impassioned and fluid as his efforts on 'Say What', 'Ain't Gone n' Give Up On Love' or as slinky on the swinging little instrumental in 'Gone Home'. Also in the album's favour is the addition of sax and keyboards allowing the musical palette to be correspondingly broader and richer,relying less on SRV's guitar and more a balanced ensemble sound.

The problem with the album is that too much of the material is rather clunky mid-tempo Earthbound generic blues. The band play great and Stevie always pitches in with enthusiasm,yet somehow the results are often rather undistinguished.You only have to listen to the brilliant bonus track 'Little Wing' for an idea of what SRV could really do when the shackles were off, it's so good it's a shame it couldn't have made the album in the first place.

In summation then - a pretty good album -a number of great songs ( the slow burning 'Ain't Gone n' Give Up On Love' has to be one of Stevie's best) and some astonishing playing only let down be the preponderance of pretty average material.Get'Soul to Soul' after 'Couldn't Stand The Weather' and 'Texas Flood'is my humble advice.

Keeping Chris and Tommy was vital, but adding the honky-tonk boogie keyboards of Reese Wynans was a master-stroke for SRV & Double Trouble.
Gives the band another dimension in their sound.
I REALLY like this album, it falls JUST short of 'Couldn't Stand the Weather', BUT as a 4-peice group, it blossoms into what became the recognised 'brand' of SRV & Double Trouble.
Again, a VITAL 'must-have' in your collection!
