Vaughan's sophomore album broils with authority and intensity and has never sounded better.
Like the destructive tornado on the album's cover, Stevie Ray Vaughan's Couldn't Stand The Weather blows with gale-force intensity, moves everything in its path and contains beautiful moments of calm at its center. Caught up in the momentum gained from his brilliant debut, the guitar slinger comes on with a startling degree of authority, confidence and swagger that hadn't been witnessed in the blues realm in decades.
At last, this incredible tour de force has finally been done right. Surpassing the myriad inferior remastered and reconfigured editions, Mobile Fidelity went straight to the source – the original master tapes – to produce a version of Couldn't Stand The Weather that will last a lifetime. The numbered limited-edition hybrid SACD brings Vaughan and Co. into your listening room and places them at your feed. Vaughan's trademark Fender Stratocaster has never sounded more lifelike, powerful or authentic.
