Stevie Ray Vaughan - Solos, Sessions and Encores Album Review
Stevie Ray Vaughan and Friends Solos, Sessions and Encores SonyBMG Album Review
Solos, Sessions and Encores
Vaughn has proved himself to be one of the best guitar players of the past 40 years with his death still being mourned by many fans. Solos, Sessions and Encores nicely showcases the best of his extra-curricular music that most fans might not have been fully aware of, some of the 'friends' on this album include: David Bowie, Dick Dale, AC Reed, Johnny Copeland, Jeff Beck, Lonnie Mack, Albert King and BB King.
It's a shame that the compilation makers decided to choose Let's Dance over China Girl as the David Bowie song of choice; but all is forgotten when you listen to Albert's Shuffle, Pipeline or Bonnie Raitt's contribution to Stevie's own Texas Flood. In an age when Guitar Hero rules supreme over many youngsters (and oldies) lives, it introduces them to the electric guitar, hopefully some will show the kind of passionate power that Stevie Ray Vaughan showed to his guitar.
