Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's debut album was released in 1983. The critically acclaimed Texas Flood, produced by John Hammond, featured the top-20 hit "Pride and Joy" and sold 500,000 copies, earning the band a Gold Record. The band's next albums, Couldn't Stand the Weather (1984) and Soul to Soul (1985), also "went gold", but did not receive as much critical acclaim as their debut.
Ol' Stevie Ray.. he was the man.. such an incredible guitarist, and real joy to watch play.. but not only could he play the guitar, he had an incredible voice as well.

I've seen videos from those two different performances from the Montreux Jazz Festival. Got a few other DVDs as well.. just fun to watch him play.
