Couldn't Stand The Weather
(200 Gram Vinyl, 2PC)
Double 200 gram vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. The Lone Star guitar god and his Double Trouble bandmates Tommy Shannon (bass) and Chris Layton (drums) hit full stride with their 1984 sophomore release Couldn't Stand the Weather. In addition to the hit "Cold Shot" and Stevie's memorable reading of Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)," Couldn't Stand the Weather features the trademark instrumentals "Scuttle Buttin' " and "Stang's Swang." Arguably Vaughan's best outing and an absolute must for blues, rock, and pop fans. The 45 RPM Analogue Productions reissue of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Couldn't Stand The Weather is so good - as are it's companions Texas Flood and Soul To Soul - that they truly represent what Gregg Geller, producer and A&R representative, described as "the best replication of the master tapes to date."
