200g 45rpm Double LP Pressed at Quality Record Pressings! Mastered from Original Analog Tapes by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound! Includes "Pride And Joy" & "Lenny!"
The 45rpm Analogue Productions reissue of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood is so good, as are its 45rpm 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."
Analogue Productions used the original 30 inches-per-second, half-inch analog master tapes. 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.
Stevie Ray Vaughan's 1983 debut album, Texas Flood, was a phenomenal success, climbing into the Top 40 and spending over half a year on the charts, which was practically unheard of for a blues recording. The record plays like a dynamite club show, filled with crowd-pleasing originals and covers, all performed with unbridled enthusiasm. Texas Flood was certified gold on August 13, 1990, and certified platinum on January 22, 1992.
