Synopsis

Amazon.com
Double Trouble without Stevie Ray Vaughan? Drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon get by with a little help from their friends, on an album of musical depth that will surprise skeptics and delight fans. Amid the varied shades of blue, highlights find the ace rhythm section reuniting with former Arc Angels bandmates Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II, Storyville singer Malford Milligan, and Stevie's brother, Jimmie Vaughan. There are passing-the-torch contributions from Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Susan Tedeschi (the latter two on a thunderous revival of Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll"). But it's Bramhall's power-trio transformation of Muddy Waters's "She's Alright" that evokes the strongest memories of Stevie. The album ends in expansively sophisticated fashion, with Dr. John, guitarist Willie Nelson, and a string section on "Baby, There's No One Like You," one of the four songs cowritten by Layton and Shannon. --Don McLeese

Double Trouble without Stevie Ray Vaughn and it works, of course they brought in a lot of superstar guys with blues pedigrees. This was released about a year or so after Stevie's death. Now people can see why he picked those guys to be his rhythm section. A worthwhile cd to listen to.

CD Reviews

Truly an enjoyable listen.

"Double Trouble [Chris Layton & Tommy Shannon] team up with their former Arc Angel bandmates Doyle Bramhill II and Charlie Sexton on several cuts; this was enough to entice my purchase of this CD. Other guests of note are Susan Tedeschi, Johny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jimmie Vaughan, Willie Nelson and Dr. John. They cover the Blues, Blues/Rock and Rock all with stlye, grace and expertise. This CD is an easy listen and pure joy to one's ears. A high quality effort [you'd expect nothing else from this line-up] from track one till the end. Buy it."

"Double Trouble, the band for SRV, does a friends album with great results. The songs are great and the music is even better. This is a great way to sample and discover some of Austin's best as well as a chance to revisit old friends. If you are looking for another SRV album you will be disappointed. If you are looking for some great TExas style blues\rock you are in for a treat."
