STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN & DOUBLE TROUBLE - Live At Montreux 1982 & 1985 (2001)

Stevie Ray Vaughan's frenetic Montreux performance is captured here on the guitarist's earliest available live album to feature Double Trouble. Liner note contributor David Bowie was in attendance at the 1982 show, and asked Vaughan that night to be his guitarist for the "Let's Dance" album and tour. Already an established artist on the Southern blues circuit, Vaughan was initially booed at this '82 appearance as part of a bill featuring "acoustic blues artists." He fittingly opens with Freddie King's "Hide Away" and then plays like a man possessed on "Rude Mood" and "Pride And Joy" (both soon to be released on 1984's "Couldn't Stand The Weather"). Vaughan absolutely sears the listener on "Love Struck Baby," and then slows the pace on the equally blistering "Dirty Pool." This set demonstrates that Vaughan not only wrote great blues songs, but brought them to another level in a live setting. Three years later, Vaughan and Double Trouble again deliver the goods in Switzerland, jamming the power blues on "Scuttle Buttin'" and "Say What!" The band is alternately slow-burning cool on Buddy Guy's "Mary Had A Little Lamb" and gorgeously emotive one "Life without You," one of 11 previously unreleased songs on Montreux.
