5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar legend, and the best driving album in the world...
The fact that SRV isnt better known in the UK is an absolute crime against music... If you like listening to amazing guitar (not shred metal rubbish but real skillful tone-minded playing) then SRV is the absolute man (obviously in the company of greats like Hendrix, BB King, Dave Gilmour etc etc but lets not open that can of worms about "who's the greatest".. Just know...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing compilation!
I was really looking forward to hearing SRV again (after my CD collection was lost after a move!) but the craving wasn't satisfied with this collection. OK for a taster but the die hard fan of this blues guitar genius will want to buy the "Texas Flood" and "Sky is Cryin'" albums to really strike gold! The technique on Texas Flood's "Scuttle Buttin" and the feel on Sky...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Legend, 28 Aug. 2012

This review is from: Very Best Of (Audio CD)
Stevie Ray Vaughan, or SRV as he was also known as, was one of the greatest guitarists of all time. His tastes in music varied greatly, and this came across in what he played. If you have never heard this artiste before, then this is an ideal introduction into the legend. With great songs and music, you can really appreciate SRV's talent on the strings. An ideal album for your music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction to Stevie Ray Vaughan, 2 Feb. 2009
By 
This review is from: Very Best Of (Audio CD)
This album is a great first introduction to the great Stevie Ray Vaughan. It was recommended to me by a work colleague and it hasn't been out of my CD player since I bought it. Some great tunes and a really good mix of styles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Showcase of a legendary blues guitarist/singer., 30 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Very Best Of (Audio CD)
A very good showcase of Stevie Ray Vaughan, legendary blues/rock guitarist/singer/composer. "Couldn't Stand the Weather" is probably the favourite track, but there are 15 to choose from. When you don't hear someone for a while you tend to forget how good they were until you hear them again & remember what a tragic loss he was to the world of music lovers, going long before his time, like Jimi Hendrix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar Great, 13 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Best Of (MP3 Download)
I am ashamed to say that it has taken me until now to find out about this guy , he is great , his music is right up my street , certainly one of the best , if not the best guitarists I have ever heard , and I have heard most , shame to find out that he has passed on , but I will make every effort to catch up on some of his other work. I never thought that I would hear a version of ' Voodoo Child ' as good as Hendrix , but this is right up there and you really can't get better praise than that , as Hendrix is one of my gods !!!..so thanks again Amazon for your sampler on Amazon Music , found some great music which may have passed me by.

I am into rock blues but somehow SRV appears to have passed me by. An amazing album, by an amazing player, and a great introduction to his work. I shall be investing in his back catalogue as finances allow.

This review is from: Very Best Of (Audio CD)
This is a fabulous collection of all the hits and more of one of the greatest ever blues rock guitarists. There is nothing really to be said apart from buy it. If you have never heard him before then this is a great starting point. If you are a guitar fan but not necessarily a blues fan, give this a try anyway. If SRV cannot convert you then nobody can.

Bought this after listening to a few tracks on Spotify. Never been a fan before now. Love it, Great blues guitar. Covers of the Hendix songs are a pretty good tribute. Took a while to arrive , but worth the wait. For the price of this CD you just cannot go wrong.
