Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble: SRV Box Set

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble set the standard for modern blues guitar for many years, right up to Vaughan’s 1990 death in a helicopter crash. Vaughan’s passionate and powerful playing was evident from the start. The Vaughan box set "SRV" holds a wealth of unissued concert material, from his earliest days in bars to his final performances. The collection shows the emergence, growth and ascendency of a master musician and his fabulous rhythmn section, bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton.
