About this album

When Stevie Ray Vaughan’s helicopter crashed in August 1990, the world lost more than just a musical giant. Stevie Ray’s short life contained all the elements of a hero’s journey—from obscurity, through adversity, to glory. His meteoric rise in the public’s eye began after a stellar performance at the 1982 Montreaux Jazz Festival, which led to a gig with David Bowie (on LET’S DANCE) and a demo that ended up becoming TEXAS FLOOD, an outstanding debut from one of the most influential blues artists ever to call Texas home.

Five years after his passing, Vaughan is honored with a GREATEST HITS collection, gathering songs from each phase of his recording career. From that first album comes the seminal “Pride And Joy,” a hard-swinging rhythmic twister revealing Stevie Ray’s prowess on the guitar. The man was a monster—simultaneously playing sweaty rhythms and soulful leads, while also handling vocal chores. When he moans that “it’s flooding down in Texas, all the telephones lines are down,” the depth of his emotion makes you feel the water rising. The guitar solo that follows—reaching, bending, testifying—can only come from someone truly in touch with his soul, and with the soul of his Stratocaster. It elicits a stunning array of colors, with a tone as warm and gruff as all of the Lone Star state.

After TEXAS FLOOD (1983), COULDN’T STAND THE WEATHER (1984) and SOUL TO SOUL (1985), Vaughan took control of his life and confronted his substance abuses.
