STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN AND DOUBLE TROUBLE
- Live Alive (1986)
Most live blues recordings have a feeling of intimacy, as if the concerts took place in some out-of-the-way venue for an audience who not only know all the lyrics, but know the performers personally as well. Live Alive, in contrast, feels like a large-scale rock concert, an epic production full of grand gestures. But really, nothing suited Stevie Ray Vaughan's style better; everything, from the overall sound to the solos, feels big. The roar of the audience, especially for favorites like "Pride and Joy," "Cold Shot," and "Texas Flood," is huge but distant, an arena sound. Overall, Live Alive leaves the impression of a series of stellar moments caught on tape, with an intensity rarely captured in the recording studio.
Recorded live at Montreux Jazz Festival on July 16, 1985; Austin Opera House on July 17-18, 1986; Dallas Starfest on July 19, 1986.
