Includes liner notes by Dan Forte. Vaughan's death in August 1990 brought to a tragic end the surging wave of his popularity. The album he had made with his brother Jimmie, FAMILY STYLE, had just been released and this album, prepared by Jimmie from the various album sessions, was not expected to amount to much. In fact, this was at least as good as any of them--and better than LIVE ALIVE. "Little Wing" was perhaps his best adaptation of a Jimi Hendrix song. His take on the Elmore James title song was also a fitting tribute to both the writer and the performer. There are bound to be further compilations and live recordings released, but these studio recordings are testimony to Stevie Ray's devotion to his craft. Editorial reviews 4 Stars - Excellent - ...the blusiest collection of [Vaughn's] career...could well be his best...there's so much presence, passion and heart in these performances that it's harder than ever to believe that Stevie's gone... Rolling Stone Magazine (11/28/1991) ...the best showcase the fiery Texan has ever had...variety, warmth, individuality... - Rating: A- Entertainment Weekly (11/29/1991)
