Overview

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble recorded TEXAS FLOOD in three whirlwind days in November 1982 using studio time donated by Jackson Browne at his Down Town Studio in Los Angeles. Overnight, this debut release made the struggling Vaughan a superstar. The album is a how-to compendium of blues guitar, as Vaughan displays thorough knowledge of blues masters while also forging his own uniquely personal sense of passion and urgency. The Larry Davis title track, recorded in one take during the last minutes of the session, is a scintillating slow blues that owes plenty to Albert King. "Mary Had a Little Lamb" is pure Buddy Guy; the gorgeous "Lenny" draws deeply from Hendrix's "Little Wing." TEXAS FLOOD introduced a generation of mainstream listeners to genuine guitar-based blues. It also spawned countless imitators, most notably Kenny Wayne Shepherd. After TEXAS FLOOD, Vaughan continued to evolve as an artist and instrumentalist, unveiling his command of Kenny Burrell-style jazz and psychedelic Hendrix rock. His 1989 release, IN STEP, revealed a more spiritual, focused artist at work. None of his subsequent works, however, surpass the raw energy of this debut effort.
