They keep on coming but they are more than welcome!,
This review is from: The Fire Meets The Fury (Audio CD)Stevie Ray Vaughan left us some years ago now, he died in a plane crash at the peak of his performing years. He had completed an album with his equally talented brother Jimmie when it happened, so sad be cause clearly there was so much to come after thge years of drink and drugs were behind him. This set though from 1989 is solid live and pretty awesome stuff. The quaslity good, the music..purely amazing. Left Field Records certainly find some great gigs to release from Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and Ry Cooder among theor other releases and all of them are musicwise from the top of the pile.
I'm sure any SRV fan will rush out and buy this, but where they keep finding these tapes I don't know, could be another like Hendrix where all these years on they still keep appearing and we still get them.This cset contains much of his touring set list of the time,but of course he never played any song exactly the same twice so every recording is unique and well worth the hearing and the wait. Buy with confidence a very fine piece of music by the Stratomaster of the blues.

Actually SRV died in a helicopter crash at Alpine Valley, Wis. on August 27, 1990 after doing a triple bill with Robert Cray opening and Eric Clapton closing. For the final jam of Sweet Home Chicago Clapton and SRV were joined by Robert, Buddy Guy and Jimmie Vaughan. Tapes of varying quality exist. They also played the night before, which I attended, although there was no jam afterward. A soundboard of SRV's set exists of that night (8-25-90) and three tunes were included on the SRV box set.
Sorry for the dissertation - just wanted to point out that Stevie died in a helicopter crash, not a plane crash.
Watching him was like watching an electrical storm. The energy he put out was incredible - I miss him like hell and still can't believe he is gone.....

One more thing - the reason Left Field Media and other import labels are able to release this stuff is because unlike the US in Europe Live Broadcasts become eminent domain after 20 years, so even though they could be classified as bootlegs they are legal in Europe.
