Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound / Cut to Double 200g 45RPM Vinyl by Quality Record Pressings
Stevie Ray Vaughan already had a decade of performing experience under his belt when he burst into the mass consciousness with his landmark 1983 debut Texas Flood. Recorded in a mere three days in Jackson Browne's private studio, Texas Flood became a surprise smash and established Vaughan as the preeminent guitar hero of the '80s. The album, which earned a pair of Grammy nominations, features the hit "Pride and Joy," along with such beloved Vaughan numbers as "Love Struck Baby," "Dirty Pool," and "Lenny."
The 45 RPM Analogue Productions reissue of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood is so good - as are its companions Couldn't Stand The Weather 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." AP used the original 30 inches-per-second, half-inch analog master tapes for all of three reissues. Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed at Quality Record Pressings.
"The new remastering sounds amazing. Better than it ever did. I'm happy and pleasantly surprised." – Double Trouble drummer Chris "Whipper" Layton
