Albert King With Stevie Ray Vaughan In Session on 200g 45RPM 2LP from Analogue Productions
Now on 200g 45rpm Double Vinyl with New Stoughton Tip-On Gatefold Jacket featuring Extra Photos!
In Session, recorded in 1983, is the only known recording of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan performing together. Its long-overdue commercial release (the album didn't come out until 1999) stands as a fitting tribute to the genius of two of the greatest musicians ever to have played the blues on electric guitar.
Anyone who's witnessed a much-anticipated jam session only to be disappointed with each participant deferring to the other, the end result being that neither ever got out of first gear, will welcome this pairing of two giants of blues guitar. Albert and Stevie Ray obviously shared a mutual admiration, but it simply wasn't in either one's makeup to be intimidated or take a backseat to anyone.
In addition to the free-spirited jams, there are priceless dialogues of conversation between each song included here as well with both men exchanging accolades and King giving the much younger Vaughan some sage advice.
Analogue Productions has taken their original pressing of this classic recording and raised the bar. It's now on double 200-gram 45rpm vinyl courtesy of Quality Record Pressings and they've replaced the original single-pocket jacket with a Stoughton Printing tip-on old-style model, featuring newly-added photos inside.
