This review is from: Couldn't Stand The Weather (Audio CD)
We all know just how spectacular Stevie was on guitar, the guy remains one of the greatest without question.
...but to suggest he wasn't a great singer?? That's just crazy! Just like Hendrix, Stevie has always been an extremely underrated vocalist. Granted, he can't sing like Skip James and knock off a falsetto at the drop of a hat - but he sang with one hell of a lot of soul and guts that I think definitely shines through on this wonderful album.
"Couldn't Stand The Weather" is another fantastic Stevie and Double Trouble record, and full marks to Legacy for doing a first class job on this remastered version. I've always been of the opinion that the guys were never really served well in the studio - the production techniques used always made them sound too polished (the live albums are always better), but this reissue goes a long way to try and correct that.
Above all though, just by this album!
