This visceral live recording from April 1, 1980, was broadcast on radio from the Steamboat 1874 club in Stevie Ray Vaughan's adopted hometown, Austin, Texas. It circulated among collectors and his manager used some of the tape as a demo before Vaughan was signed to Epic Records by John Hammond. Young Stevie Ray's performance bristles with uncorked energy: Vaughan is caught improvising on raw slide guitar, growling through Otis Rush's "All Your Love (I Miss Loving)" and pushing his fretboard speed and vocal limits on Guitar Slim's "They Call Me Guitar Hurricane." Also offered are unpolished versions of tunes that became fan favourites: "Tin Pan Alley", "Love Struck Baby" and "Tell Me." --Ted Drozdowski

It features Vaughan, drummer Chris Layton and then-bassist Jackie Newhouse tearing through a nine-song set with youthful enthusiasm....three of the songs, including the smoking Elmore James-inspired slide guitar instrumental "Slide Thing", are Stevie Ray Vaughan-originals, the rest are cover versions of classc blues and R&B tunes.
Stevie Ray does a funky rendition of Eddie "Guitar Slim" Jones' "They Call Me Guitar Hurricane", a supremely groovy "All Your Love (I miss loving)" (the Otis Rush classic) with some excellent syncopated drumming by Chris Layton, and a very good and very mature take on the classic slow blues "Tin Pan Alley".
And you get to hear early versions of his own "Love Struck Baby", the opening track on his debut album three years later, and the wonderful, swinging blues-rocker "I'm Cryin'", which was called "Live Another Day" back in 1980, after the line "(If) I can't love my baby / I can't live another day".
This is a really, really good "live in the studio" album, with only a few SRV originals, but featuring some well-chosen and masterfully executed cover songs. A very worthy and highly enjoyable addition to Stevie Ray's catalogue.
The CD 'opens' with In the Open, a Freddy King number, performed at SRV's raunchiest, with his own 'Texas' interpretation.
Other familiar SRV tracks include Tin Pan Alley and Love Struck Baby.
On this CD Stevie has covered other artists' material ranging from Willie Dixon (Shake for me) to Howling Wolf (Tell Me). Yet each and every track bears his own trade mark - his distinctive frenetic guitar style. There is no attempt to imitate the styles of the original bluesmen who recorded the tracks before him.
He proves himself a worthy bottleneck guitarist on Slide Thing, recalling elements of Elmore James, (although Stevie wrote this himself).
This is a CD which predates SRV's studio successes. It has the an even greater raw quality that his studio works had.
This is an essential addition to the CD collection of any blues fan.
This recording captures Stevie Vaughan (not yet known as Stevie Ray) and Double Trouble in such a setting. Broadcast live over Austin, Texas, airwaves in 1980, Stevie and company rip through nine tunes. On ‘Love Struck Baby’. ‘Tell Me’, and ‘Live Another Day’, Vaughan is bursting with energy from start to finish. Stevie’s sense of rhythm on ‘In The Open’ is flawless, and his slide playing on ‘Slide Thing’ is ferocious. On the tour de force, ‘Tin Pan Alley’, he makes his guitar weep before bursting into a furious hurricane of of chordal bends and lead runs with his signature stinging vibrato. Mistakes are scarce, but when they do happen, Stevie does what all great blues artists do – he plays the mistake again.
In The Beginning clearly indicates that Vaughan’s style had been well developed long before he burst onto the guitar scene in 1982 with Texas Flood.
When it comes to down ‘n’ dirty Texas-style blues, it doesn’t get any better than this!
