A good solid set...

Stevie had saidt hat he always wanted to do an album with his brother. This turned out to be both his wish come true and his last studio recording ever. And a great one at that. The brothers sound like....well....brothers. Just having a grand old time with each other.
Small sidenote... The producer of this terrifc disc is none other than Nile Rodgers of Chic fame. And he does it with the most vitailty, reverence, and care that anyone can muster. It's a fun recording and a great Summer disc on top of that.

Some good songs on a weird album

At first I listened to this album as a Stevie fan, which is probably why I didn't like it. After experiencing a lot more blues, I listened to it again and liked it a lot more. There are some essential SRV songs on this album. Tick Tock, Telephone Song, Hard to Be, Long Way From Home, and the instrumental DFW are highlights. 3 of those 5 just happen to feature Stevie as a writer. Most of the songs Jimmie wrote aren't quite my bag of tea. I'm more into Blues Rock and they seem more country than Bluesey, but you might like them. Other than the songs, there are alot of weird sounds and voices which were kind of hard for me to look past at first they're supposed to be funny or something? The album would probably have gotten 4 stars if not for the track Hillbillies in Outer Space. See if you can listen to Tick Tock without thinking of John Mayer's Waiting on the World to Change. There are a couple tracks where they just jam and it's pretty cool the first couple times. Overall it's a very unique album with a blend of a few very different styles of Blues. Check it out especially if you're a big fan of either Vaughan.

Classic SRV

Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughn team up to create a classic album of Texas rock and southern blues. Sadly it was the last time they would work together before Stevie's death in 1991. Each track showcases both of their styles which complement each other nearly perfectly, particularly on "Brothers" and "Tick Tock". A must have for any fan of either Stevie or Jimmie.
