With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited
the blues revival of the '80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert
King, Otis Rush and Hubert Sumlin and rock 'n' roll players like Jimi Hendrix
and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell,
developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other
guitarist, regardless of genre.
On 1989's In Step, Vaughan found his own songwriting voice, blending blues,
soul, and rock in unique ways, and writing with startling emotional honesty.
Yes, there are a few covers, all well chosen, but the heart of the album rests
in the songs he co-wrote with Doyle Bramhall, the man who penned the Soul to
Soul highlight "Change It." Fueled by a desire to make up for lost time and
delight in his reawakened commitment to life and sobriety, Vaughan turned in
what many consider his greatest artistic statement, an album ensconced in sweat,
soul, determination, and not an ounce of filler.
"Travis Walk" offers a heady rush of flat-picking, "The House is Rockin'" is
full-tilt roots-boogie, "Let Me Love You Baby" and "Leave My Girl Alone" are
sweet blues epiphanies, and the nine-minute instrumental "Riviera Paradise" is a
truly soulful mix of blues and jazz. By now, just a year before his untimely
death, Vaughan had also tamed his bawling voice into a rich instrument. In
short, this 1989 session is Vaughan at his artistic peak.
As with their vaunted box set reissues, Texas Hurricane, again Analogue
Productions delivers the finest-sounding Stevie Ray Vaughan collections ever
preserved on 200-gram vinyl. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for
the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the
plating and the vinyl was pressed of course at Quality Record Pressings.
There's not a link in this chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute
best that money can buy. Analogue Productions are passionate about the blues AND
Stevie Ray and the passion shows up here in spades.
