More Stevie Ray Vaughan

Soul To Soul

A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

If you’re a fan of this kind of electric (and electrifying) blues-rock, the stunning size and presence of this pressing will blow you away! At its best this recording can really jump out of the speakers and fill the room, but most copies just can’t quite get there. Vaughn’s guitar playing is as fiery as ever, and the addition of keyboards and saxophone here gives the music broader scope and range than his previous albums.

AMG Review

By adding two members to Double Trouble — keyboardist Reese Wynans and saxophonist Joe Sublett — Stevie Ray Vaughan indicated he wanted to add soul and R&B inflections to his basic blues sound, and Soul to Soul does exactly that. It’s still a modern blues album, yet it has a wider sonic palette, finding Vaughan fusing a variety of blues, rock, and R&B styles.
