LEGACY RECORDINGS RELEASING 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF TEXAS FLOOD, THE ALBUM DEBUT OF STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN AND DOUBLE TROUBLE, FEATURING PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED PHILADELPHIA LIVE SET FROM 1983

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble – Texas Flood
2-CD 30th Anniversary Legacy Edition
Available Tuesday, January 29, 2013



Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, announces the release of an expanded two-disc 30th anniversary edition of Texas Flood, the electrifying debut album by the American blues rock trio Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, available everywhere Tuesday, January 29, 2013.

A live sensation on the Austin, Texas club circuit since the late 1970s, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble–Stevie Ray (guitar, vocals), Tommy Shannon (bass) and Chris “Whipper” Layton (drums)–turned in a particularly memorable show at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland in 1982, catching the ears of David Bowie (who enlisted Stevie Ray for his Let’s Dance album) and Jackson Browne (who offered the band free use of his Los Angeles recording studio). Accepting the offer, Stevie Ray and Double Trouble recorded several tracks over a whirlwind three days (with day one mainly devoted to setting up equipment) with the resultant tracks grabbing the attention of legendary record producer John Hammond, who’d discovered and signed Bob Dylan, Count Basie, Billie Holiday, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, Benny Goodman, Aretha Franklin and many others. Hammond brought Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble to Epic Records, which released the remastered tracks as Texas Flood in 1983.

Executive produced by John Hammond, the original Texas Flood album was produced by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tommy Shannon, Chris Layton and engineer Richard Mullen. The Legacy Edition of Texas Flood is produced by Gregg Geller (who, as head of Epic’s A&R 1983, signed Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble to the label).

An immediate and surprising success, Texas Flood peaked at #38 on the Billboard 200 while “Pride and Joy” shot up to #20 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The album’s title track was nominated for a Best Traditional Blues Performance Grammy while “Rude Mood” grabbed a Grammy nom for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. The album has sold more than 2 million copies since its original release.

Originally released on Epic Records on June 13, 1983, Texas Flood, an unapologetic apotheosis of electric blues supercharged for a post-disco post-punk pop world, introduced audiences to a soul-filled sound that existed outside both the mainstream and underground tastes of its era. The album opened the gates of a fiery blues resurgence with Stevie Ray Vaughan signature compositions like “Pride and Joy” and “Love Struck Baby” flowing naturally alongside covers of deep blues and R&B standards by Howlin’ Wolf, the Isley Brothers, Buddy Guy and Larry Davis.

Disc One of the 30th Anniversary Legacy Edition of Texas Flood includes the original album in its entirety with the bonus track “Tin Pan Alley” (aka “Roughest Place in Town”).

Disc Two of the newly expanded Texas Flood will premiere a previously unavailable hour’s long set of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble live at Ripley’s Music Hall in Philadelphia. Recorded on October 20, 1983 for a WMMR broadcast, the extraordinary Ripley’s performance finds Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble coming straight out of the gun already at an undeniable peak of their formidible powers.

The 30th Anniversary Legacy Edition of Texas Flood includes extensive liner notes by noted music historian Ashley Kahn (A Love Supreme: The Story of John Coltrane’s Signature Album; Kind of Blue: The Making of the Miles Davis Masterpiece). In his notes, Kahn writes, “The story of Texas Flood—more than any other recording by the guitarist—is the story of Stevie Ray. The album stands closest to his personal roots, roots that grew from a loamy mix of deep Southern blues, Texas R&B, and white-boy rock ‘n’ roll. It echoes his earliest triumphs as a guitarist, and serves as the triumphant finish-line to a ten-year run of hustling and scuffling that began in 1973, when the Dallas-born, 18-year old left home for the Austin music scene.”

Oh great..

First I buy the LP years and years ago. Then later, when I embraced CDs, well...I just had to have a CD version of Texas Flood as well.

Then when they re-mastered Texas Flood, I had to buy it for the bonus tracks.

Now Sony expects me to re buy it yet again???!!!!

Well...yeah...of course I will...It's Stevie ...


OK...Here's your money...gimmie my 2 disc set...

I too bought the LP, then CD, then CD reissue with bonus tracks. I won't be buying this one but I would if they put a show on disc 2 that wasn't readily available. If you collect SRV shows it was probably the 2nd or 3rd one you got, and if you don't have it but want to hear it, you can find it on Wolfgang's Vault for free. It's been on the internet since Al Gore invented it (lol). I was disappointed with the Couldn't Stand the Weather legacy edition for the same reason. I didn't think the Montreal show much better than the bootlegs and it wasn't worth shelling out 30 bucks 9which I reluctantly did). I have the first and second shows from that date and they sound great in bootleg form, I should have kept my money. it's Texas Flood. they should have some SBD or FM recordings that aren't widely circulated they could have used instead.

Thanks much for the heads up on that. Maybe I don't need this one after all.

(I think I just heard my wife breathe a sigh of relief )

When I saw the bonus show I thought, gee, that date/venue sounds familiar.

Yup, right there in my file drawer.

I just wanted to chime in on behalf of the deluxe version of Couldn't Stand The Weather. Apart from the live show, which I didn't have already, I thought that release had some of the most worthy "bonus tracks" of any re-issue I own. Practically another half of an album on there, and not just half-finished demos and the like, but full-blown songs. Some of them would show up on other albums, but I like these versions better in most cases.

Maybe more hardcore SRV fans already had all that stuff, but as a more casual fan, it was perfect for me.

I'm not sure if I'll take the plunge on Texas Flood, but I love the 2-CD Couldn't Stand The Weather. Just my two cents....

In that mode, does anyone have his last show? I have the night before, which is awesone ! His cover of Stevie Wonder is off the charts good.

I have it.

Not nearly as good a recording as the night before.

I asked Skip if he'd work on it a few years back, he said there wasn't much he could do to help it.
