Product Description

CD Description

Stevie Ray Vaughan s battle with drink and drug addiction during the mid-eighties was well documented, thus his triumphant return with fourth studio album In Step in June 1989 was met with much relief and huge enthusiasm by fans and critics alike. His return was of course to be cut tragically short however, when the horrific helicopter crash that ended his life took place little more than a year later. With comparisons to fret-board geniuses such as Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton regularly made, the body of work Stevie Ray left behind confirms his status as one of the most skilled and creative guitarists of all time . Taken from the final two nights of The Fire Meets The Fury Tour , during which Vaughan was paired with British guitar legend Jeff Beck for a 28 date run, and as part of his wider In Step Tour arranged to promote what was to be the maestro s final solo studio record, both sets offer a widely diverse song selection that span the entirety of Vaughan s recording career. With Stevie sadly passing on just eight months after these two gigs, they remain amongst the last recorded performances given by this guitar virtuoso, and accordingly, provide an historic document as well as a hugely enjoyable listening experience for the man s millions of fans still flying the flag for the finest rock guitarist to emerge in the final quarter of the twentieth century.

Product Description

Two gigs from the 1988 tour that was co-headlined with Jeff Beck. Both sets offer a widely diverse song selection that span the entirety of Vaughan's recording career

5.0 out of 5 stars wow, stunning live album 23 Mar 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This s a radio broadcast of Stevie a few months before he died in the period after he got cleaned up. It sounds like analogue to digital conversion with no real remixing and as such the sound quality is not equivalent to modern recordings and not as good as say live at carnegie. But boy Stevies performance both vocally is playing is blisteringly hot. I have everything by Stevie and this recording has captured his playing at his best. It jumps out of the speakers and grabs you by the throat. Not one for those looking for their first album by Stevie due to the sound quality (which isn't bad, its just not great). But if you want to hear the master live, this is it

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, fantastic player - dodgy packaging 16 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As I understand it, Stevie's brother Jimmy has been the major player in the trusteeship of Stevie's legacy - including the no doubt vast amount of material which at this stage remains unreleased. Everything that has come our via the official estate has, in my view, been excellent and I'd particularly reccommend the book format box set with 3 cds and a dvd from perhaps 10 years ago.

So what has that got to do with this? Well, from what I gather fom the packaging, this is not a release where any control has been exercised by the Vaughan estate, but rather the release of tapes which I suspect are owned by the radio stations who broadcast and recorded the original concerts. The essay inside the booklet is pretty poor, feeling like a lazy 'cut and paste' job, and, as has been noted in other reviews, there are errors in dates and key details : Doyle Bramhall's name in the writing credits appears as Branhalm for example. I hate this lack of respect for artist's work, and thank God that SRV has never been subject to the disrespectful barrel scraping that has marred the Hendrix estate for years.

But what about the music? Well - it's not the best quality recording, but it's certainly better than a lot of the bootlegs doing the rounds, and it does of course capture SRV at a very special time in his career : clean, sober - touring again, and in the form of his life. This is of course bittersweet, insofar as, whilst we can enjoy this record of his remarkable talent, it also reminds us that we lost so much when he died just months after these concerts were broadcast : what might have been?

So - the performance : 5 stars, the recording : 4 stars, packaging 2 stars..... but you don't listen to the sleeve I suppose!

I just wanted to point out to the fans of Stevie & to Smokin' Productions who have released this effort that these great live radio broadcasts from 2 different venues were performed/recorded in 1989, not 1999 as blazonly stated on the front cover of the CD (though dated correctly on the rear cover).

A highly recommended addition to any Stevie Ray Vaughan/Blues Rock fan's collection.

Stevie Ray Vaughan - October 3, 1954 - August 27, 1990 - Six Strings Down - RIP.

Simon James Binks.

5.0 out of 5 stars The fire meets the fury by Stevie Ray Vaughan 6 Jan 2013
By Duncan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy rock blues guitar and have an extensive collection, I somehow overlooked S-R Vaughan, what a mistake. This album has such energy and rhythm, his guitar work is so fluid but with complexity that is hard to believe. His version of Stevie Wonder's Superstition is awesome!
