Both are veteran music journalists who followed Vaughan for decades; Aledort interviewed him four times. Jimmie succeeded first as a guitar prodigy, pursuing purist blues and eventually forming the Fabulous Thunderbirds. Stevie Ray proved more open to experimentation, embracing diverse influences such as Jimi Hendrix. The interspersed historical photographs create an effect akin to watching an interview-based television documentary.

Jonathan Novajosky: Not crazy at all about this album. I feel like I'm listening to the same song over and over, but I realise I will probably in the minority with that opinion.
Pride and Joy is decent, but too repetitive as are the instrumentals on the album that go nowhere for me.
Randy Banner: Another artist that, given his legacy, I should be more familiar with; but apart from a handful of tracks, I've never taken the time to explore. On first ever listen, I notice that this this album is very well-produced; every note is crisp and clean. SVR is a phenomenal guitarist and the band is tight.
As far as the songs go, there is nothing that I didn't like but I noticed that, for the most part, the album is relatively uptempo.
I'm not a blues aficionado by any stretch, but I know what I like and I am more of a fan of slowed-down minor-key songs, therefore the standout tracks for me were Texas Flood , Dirty Pool and Lenny. As debut albums go, this is as good an introduction to SVR as one could ask for.
I'm looking forward to expanding my familiarity with his musical catalog. Fred Varcoe: When you rate albums out of 10, it's an exercise in comparison, but there are some artists out there that just don't have an equivalent.
Particularly guitarists. Some are so unique, they are off the scale. They're not all perfect, but you can't say, 'Well, xxxx was better. The sheer impact he had was amazing because the blues was pretty much dead at the time. Stevie just blew away the cobwebs and took off. Even out of his brain on booze or drugs, he could blow anyone away. I saw him at Hammersmith Palais and even though he was just a day or two out of serious, serious rehab he had his mother looking after him at the gig; she even wandered across the stage at one point halfway through the show , he lit up London.
