Stevie Ray Vaughan – Texas Flood (AP 45rpm Vinyl 2LP)
Mastered from the original analog tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound
Cut at 45 RPM, 200-gram pressing by Quality Record Pressings
“The new remastering sounds amazing. Better than it ever did. I’m happy and pleasantly surprised.” — Chris “Whipper” Layton
The 45 RPM Analogue Productions reissue of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Texas Flood is so good, as are its 45 RPM companions — Couldn’t Stand The Weather and Soul To Soul — that they truly represent what Gregg Geller, producer and A&R representative described as “the best replication of the master tapes to date.”
Stevie Ray Vaughan’s 1983 debut album, Texas Flood, was a phenomenal success, climbing into the Top 40 and spending over half a year on the charts, which was practically unheard of for a blues recording. The record plays like a dynamite club show, filled with crowd-pleasing originals and covers, all performed with unbridled enthusiasm. Texas Flood was certified gold on August 13, 1990, and certified platinum on January 22, 1992.
There’s not a link in this production chain that wasn’t absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy.
