4.0 out of 5 stars 4 stars here. Not a stand-alone set, but a terrific companion volume to "The Real Deal" vol. 1, 29 Jun 2003

This review is from: The Real Deal Vol.2 (Audio CD)
The original 11-track "Greatest Hits" CD from 1995 didn't do justice to the late, great Stevie Ray Vaughan at all, but since it was replaced by "The Real Deal - Greatest Hits vol. 1", all that has changed.

Vol. 1 includes sixteen of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's best and best-known songs, including "Pride & Joy", "Cold Shot", the sizzling high-octane blues "Texas Flood", and the rollicking "The House Is Rocking", and here you get sixteen more.
The quality is every bit as high as on volume one, and if the songs are slightly less well known, they're certainly no less excellent. We get stellar career highlights like the swaggering, piano-driven boogie "Look At Little Sister" and the riff-driven "Willie The Wimp", driving, up-tempo rockers like "Love Struck Baby" and the tough but supremely groovy "Empty Arms", and the intense survivor's tale "Life By The Drop".

This is an exceptionally strong and varied collection of songs, a terrific showcase for the never-overestimated talents of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Its only flaw, if you will, is that it doesn't really work as a proper career overview, so you'll have to get volume one as well! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars guitar playing to die and cry for, 27 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Real Deal Vol.2 (Audio CD)
I had the advantage of listening to this amazing disc for the first time in Austin, Texas, USA but was wowed before I knew that was his home city and he had been killed in a helicopter crash in 1990. So not won over by the 'dead legend' tag but by the brilliance and beauty of the playing. There is everything from a live blaster of a version of Stevie Wonder's 'Superstition' as never heard before to the aching beauty of the acoustic Riviera Paradise. Blues, R&B, jazz - go get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A tragic loss far too soon, and music that shows he was going to be THE best, 25 July 2013

This album title says it all, because it is. All the tracks are just wonderful, highlights for me would be the live versions of Willie the Wimp, Shake for Me, Leave my Girl Alone, and my absolute favourite I don't think is on anything else he ever released, an instrumental called Pipeline. There is also Lenny, written for his wife and the dreamy just gorgeous Riviera Paradise. I could go on more and wax lyrical about his amazing guiar playing but the best way to appreciate this, is buy it and listen, he was THE best and I really miss him.
