Texas Bluesman : Stevie Ray Vaughan made his mark between 1954 - 1983. SRV helped transform the bay of blues from an archaic aural area and drag it kicking and punching into the 70's when a whole new rafter of musical genres were appearing and challenging the traditional status quo. His 1983 fresher album Texas Flood placed Mr Vaughan to the fore of a blues revolution. From this juncture up until his sad 1990 demise in a helicopter crash this maverick musician built up a loyal fanbase who have stayed true to their man. One thinks what could have been if this precocious talent had continued to garner his guitar guile.
However, a reminder of his skills come via the best of set that compiles the highlights of a live FM Broadcast show from The Majestic Theatre, San Antonio, Texas on 1st February 1987. A dozen diamonds from a renowned show. 83 minutes of blistering blues collated by Hobo Records reminds us what was and makes us think what could have been. Life without You is not the same.....
