In Step embraces blues and rock without compromising the primal joys of either. This is Stevie Ray Vaughan's best studio album and the first he recorded sober. "Travis Walk" offers a heady rush of flat-picking, "The House is Rockin'" is full-tilt roots-boogie, "Let Me Love You Baby" and "Leave My Girl Alone" are sweet blues epiphanies, and the nine-minute instrumental "Riviera Paradise" is a truly soulful mix of blues and jazz. By now, just a year before his untimely death, Vaughan had also tamed his bawling voice into a rich instrument. In short, this 1989 session is Vaughan at his artistic peak. And the four compelling live performances added to this reissue--"The House Is Rockin'," "Let Me Love You Baby," "Texas Flood," and "Life Without You," all from the In Step tour--prove there was no studio trickery involved. It's raw blues-rock perfection. --Ted Drozdowski

"Any album,Cd,tape by Stevie Ray Vaughan is 10,000 times better than anything anyone else has ever put out. This is, by far, his and Double Troble's best album and the extended tracks are all excellent. I won't rehash what everyone else has already said but keep this in mind.
No one EVER did it better than Stevie Ray Vaughan. Not before...not during and for sure not since. Stevie Ray WAS electric blues done to perfection!!"

"His musicality is beyond talent-SRV knew how to make his guitar say it all-and when he adds his own voice...well, it's unlike any other musical experience. I am a fan of many kinds of music- from New Age to Classical...Stevie Ray Vaughan never disappoints me. I wish he were alive, so I could get to see him in concert, but so grateful his music lives on."
