Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble: Texas Flood (Epic AL 38734)
Mitchell Cohen, High Fidelity, August 1983
STEVIE RAY Vaughan's guitar playing is designed to elicit gasps: Every cluster of notes is an invitation to amazement. This multiple-climax approach could easily prove exhausting (when you know a corker of a solo is due for arrival in four bars you steel yourself for another bluesy barrage), but Vaughan's feisty attack makes for terrific entertainment.
