TOP 500 REVIEWERon 3 February 2010
I've seen Jimmie Vaughan solo a couple of times live and wasn't very impressed- his guitar playing was nothing special and he ended up bringing Lou Ann Barton out to do most of the singing. However, I was quite impressed by this his first solo record from 1994, released four years after his brother Stevie's death. Although Nile Rodgers seems a strange choice of producer he does a great job, mixing traditional Texas blues with more souly elements, there's great backing - including wonderful Hammond organ and back-up singers. The standout track is probably the Neville Brothers' Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute "Six strings down" (although not a patch on the version on the Stevie Ray tribute CD) done here as an acoustic blues. I really liked the souly tracks "(Everybody's Got) Sweet Soul Vibe" and "Love The World" and also the title track which is a haunting jazzy instrumental. All in all this was a very promising solo debut that for me Jimmie never really followed up on.

Bought this for one track (six strings down) - the rest of the cd was a pleasant surprise. I was aware his work with the Fabulous Thunderbirds , but didn`t realise he`d made this album. A mixture of R&R jazz &blues shows his versatility in this field. Yes I`m please to have this one in my collection.

Uniquely remastered!

All three CDs are a must have for any blues parishioner of Reverend Vaughan's musical spiritual testimony!

Standard Jimmy Vaughan; quite listenable but whatever the opposite of groundbreaking is, this album is in that category. His guitar playing compares to his late brother's like Accrington Stanley to Manchester Utd.
