Stevie Ray Vaughan was one of a kind. Even his peers knew so. So many times, people like Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy have spoken publicly about Stevie Ray's gift, and it was a gift. His guitar leads would jet off into the stratosphere, return, reload, and blast off again, time after time. The Real Deal is exactly what it says it is. This is a 16-song set that doesn't let up, not one time. Throughout classic Stevie Ray tracks, like the full-speed-ahead instrumental "Scuttle Buttin'," "Love Struck Baby," and "Look at Little Sister," Stevie and the Double Trouble band consistently stand and deliver. Live tracks include the funky Stevie Wonder-penned "Superstition," Vaughan favorite "Willie the Wimp," "Shake for Me," and the blues fire of "Leave My Girl Alone." It's Stevie Ray unleashed, live and without a net. One of the biggest crowd-pleasers is included here, Stevie's retelling of the Jimi Hendrix standard "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)." Awesome. "Lenny" shows off Stevie's jazz influence with subtle phrasing that evokes memories of "Little Wing" or the coda on "Layla." No more perfect closer could have been chosen for this set than the solo acoustic number "Life by the Drop." It's a touching tale of two old friends who become estranged and then rekindle their old friendship. With The Real Deal, we are all in that same boat. Rekindling a friendship that never really died, but may have been forgotten by some for a while. The friendship we all have with the heart and soul of Stevie Ray Vaughan, his music. ~ Michael B. Smith, Rovi
Great Artist, Great Selection, but Lousy Crediting
"Pipeline" is performed with D. Dale* (the same version appears on "King of the Surf Guitar" and the movie "Back to the Beach"), yet no indication that this other great guitarist plays on the song appears on this album. *(iTunes idiotically treats Mr. Dale's first name as a bleeped obscenity when I preview my review.)
Greatest Hits vol2
C'est une compilation honnête pour le virtuose et elle complète bien l'autre greatest hits que j'ai de lui. Il est un peu moins bon que le premier volume mais c'est encore de l'excellente musique. C'est un musicien qui est mort trop jeune et qui est maintenant une légende.
Mes chansons préférées : superstition, Voodoo Child et Love Struck Baby.
