Stevie Ray Vaughan - Couldn't Stand The Weather (1984)
Stevie Ray Vaughan - Couldn't Stand The Weather (1984) Legacy 2 CD Remaster
Lets start off 2012 on the right foot shall we ?
"Couldn't Stand The Weather" was the 2nd album way back from guitar blues wizard Stevie Ray Vaughan. Follow up albums are usually key and Vaughan and Double Trouble managed to pull off another great album to support perhaps my favourite blues rock album of all time.... "Texas Flood".
Not a bad track on this album with 2 absolutely stunning ones "Tin Pan Alley" and his ode to Jimbo Hendrix "Voodoo Child (slight return) which is just a stunning version. Included in the legacy 2 CD remastered edition is a live performance from Montreal at the Spectrum (Aug 17th, 1984) . Also included are a number of unreleased tracks from these recording sessions making this quite a stunning package.
