THE BEST SRV TRIBUTE
Mike E. Capesius | Woodstock, Ga United States | 10/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Forget about that supposed all-star tribute crap put on by Jimmy Lee. This is simply the best and most pure example of the blues. Stevie himself would be proud of the work these fine lesser known guitarists have done. Pat Travers does a great job of starting the CD out with a searing rendition of Cold Shot. It only gets better from there. Buy this today....you won;t be disappointed."
Stevie would be pleased to hear this

"Great guitar work all around, no slackers here. However the Frank Marino & Mahogony Rush cut by itself is worth the price of the CD"
What's the point?
Michael J Edelman | Huntington Woods, MI USA | 07/03/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Musicians playing on tribute albums dedicated to unique stylists like SRV have two options: Play it exactly like the original, or give it a complete makeover in their own style. The first option leads to pale imitations of the original- check out the otherwise excellent Rick Derringer on "Pride and Joy"- and the second option is often so far from the original that the whole "tribute" acpect gets lost in the mix.

Everyone on this disk pretty much went for the first option- do it like Stevie- and that's a pity. The disk is full of good performances that can stand on their own, but in explicitly making it an SRV gtribute, the listener really has no choice but to compare each cut to his or her memory of the original, and given that choice, it's better to stick with the original."
