Mastered from the Original Analog Tapes by Ryan K. Smith at Sterling Sound / Cut to Double 200g 45RPM Vinyl by Quality Record Pressings
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 its 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." 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
