Synopsis

Amazon.com
A magic night (May 11, 1995) on PBS's Austin City Limits translates superbly to disc for this heartfelt and soulful salute from a Hall of Fame crew led by B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, and Dr. John. Brother Jimmy's elegant "Texas Flood," Raitt's kick-ass "Pride and Joy," and the amiable collective jams on "Six Strings Down" and "SRV Shuffle" are all highlights. --Jeff Bateman

This is a CD that will make you fall in love with SRV all over again. His best songs are played and sung by fantastic artists in their own right. Eric Clapton's guitar rivals that of SRV. Brother Jimmie Vaughn's "Texas Flood" is soul stirring. Bonnie Raight does the ever popular "Pride and Joy" with a sound all her own. A whole group of great blues artists join in the last 2 tracts,as well as singing individual tracts These include B.B.King, Dr. John, Buddy Guy and others. All in all, It is a very enjoyable CD that you would rarely, if ever, hear on the radio.

Austin City Limits Tribute recorded
R. Kyle | USA | 07/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the best of ACL and that's saying a whole lot. This 1995 tribute to Austin-based Stevie Ray Vaughn featured an all-star cast, including Stevie's brother, Jimmy, Eric Clapton, BB King, Bonnie Raitt, and more.

"Pride and Joy" by Bonnie Raitt is probably my favorite of the bunch, but there's not a bad song in the collection.

For such a short life, Stevie Ray Vaughn made an outstanding contribution to blues and guitar and he will be sorely missed. In my opinion, this is one of the best tributes I have ever seen or heard.

'SRV Shuffle' Great Finish To Fine Tribute
Craig Connell | Lockport, NY USA | 09/13/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"
Vaughan's old band, led by his brother Jimmie, and a group of big-name blues-rock stars, play tribute to the late-great blues man. Guests are B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Dr. John and Art Neville.

In between the songs are tributes by those guests, and some short excerpts of Vaughan's performances from various concerts. Those excerpts are great, and really show off Stevie Ray's extraordinary talent.

Speaking of talent, all the guests are entertaining and fun to hear. Buddy Guy is fun to watch, too. Does anybody have more fun playing blues on his guitar than Guy? Nobody, frankly, does a super song but they are all good and, for just $10, this is a good deal.. The best number is at the end when the group jam and takes turns with solos. The finale, "SRV Shuffle," to me, was the best song on the DVD. It's so good I get tears in my eyes every time I watch and hear that last number."
