3.0 out of 5 stars More blues this time but it all sounds a bit dull...
This record follows up 2010's 'Plays Blues, Ballads & Favorites' and features the same band and also Lou Ann Barton (on three tracks, including a live version of 'Shake a hand') who also gets her photo on the cover. In my review of that disc I complained that there was too much R&B, rock and roll, country and pop and not enough blues and Jimmie has odviously taken my...

Last years 'Plays Blues, Ballads and Favourites was for me the best USA blues release of the year, an album of great songs superbly played by a cracking band and one of the best guitarists there is.We hass fifteen tracks of blues magic, one I play over and over again.Well now...what do we get but a second volume 'More' and this is just as great again chock full of great songs superbly played again by the same fabulous band as the first, sixteen tracks,including a live one this time as well.On the first album Lou Ann Barton sang on some tracks and with her wonderful and soulfull voice I'm sure we all wanted more, well she's on this one and also shares her photo on the front of the album with Jimmie Vaughan, not a yellow cover this time but pale green.This is an album of pure quality by a guitarist we have in the UK have overlooked for far too long,his touch and feel of the guitar is superb,his rhythms and punchy solos show us all what can be done with such a talent as Jimmie's.THe opening 'I Ain't Never' gets us off to a really pulsating start followed by a great little song 'No Use Knockin' which would be a great song for more bands to cover, this kicks off a CD that is an absolute pleasure throughout.Jimmie toured the UK end of last year and this release must surely add to the popularity of this truly fine artist.Trackwise some known,some not so well but no matter this is a release of the very top quality that will I'm sure be played for many years to come. Both of these albums for me are already blues classics.
Not been into Jimmie Vaughan so far then do get this release to enjoy one of blues say music's truly great exponents of the guitar, oh and he possess a very good voice as well.Another very likely blues release of the year ! Wonderful.

This record follows up 2010's 'Plays Blues, Ballads & Favorites' and features the same band and also Lou Ann Barton (on three tracks, including a live version of 'Shake a hand') who also gets her photo on the cover. In my review of that disc I complained that there was too much R&B, rock and roll, country and pop and not enough blues and Jimmie has odviously taken my advice and included more blues this time! However, despite that I'm afraid that I don't like this any more than I did 'Plays Blues, Ballads & Favorites' and this time there is much less variety. Although Jimmie does produce really authentic-sounding Texas blues for me these songs are largely undistinguished and Jimmie's limited vocals couldn't keep my attention. Similarly his guitar playing goes for 50s-style authenticity rather than feeling and I'm afraid I found it all a bit dull. My favourite track is the Jimmie/Lou Ann duet on Bobby Charles' "No use knocking" but overall I'd rather Jimmie got back to the more contemporary and harder-edged sounds of his previous original records "Do you get the blues" and "Out there".
