By late 1986, Stevie Ray Vaughan had been through rehab in London and, according to all reports, was feeling like a new man. His dependency problems, which had haunted him throughout his career, were, he felt, now behind him and he was intent on two things; getting back to playing the blues and helping others overcome their own, similar problems. He achieved the former with ease and passion - this was, after all, what the master guitarist was born to do. The concert featured on this deluxe 2LP-set is taken from an FM radio broadcast, transmitted live from the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, GA, on New Year's Eve '86, clearly a dynamic event. Stevie and Double Trouble perform with gusto and flare, whilst the audience is wild with ecstasy. Joining Vaughan on stage after the new year kicks in is none other than guitar legend Lonnie Mack, and the two bluesmen bounce off each other beautifully for a magical rendition of Mack's "Oreo Cookie Blues," which ends this extraordinary performance and readies Stevie Ray to enter what, tragically, would become the final, albeit majestic, era of his career - and sadly his life.
