Double Trouble - Nashville 1978



Double Trouble - Nashville 1978
[no visible label] (32:53, 10 tracks)
Recorded at Jack "Cowboy " Clement's home studio 11/79. The booklet that accompanies the disc claims that the CD was taken from an acetate (the only source known to exist, apparently any tapes were destroyed or deteriorated). The inserts are numbered and limited to 1000 copies. Includes Jackie Newhouse on bass and Lou Ann Barton, vocals. Some tracks are similar to "The First Thunder", but most are different. Great sound quality but has "feel of listening to a slightly worn LP."

01) You Can Have My Husband (2:51) (Lou Ann vocal)
02) Rude Mood (3:23)
03) Pride And Joy (3:00) (Stevie vocal)
04) Oh, Yeah (3:00) (Lou Ann vocal)
05) Love Struck Baby (2:05) (Stevie vocal)
06) Ti-Ni-Nee-Ni-Nu (2:45) "Tina Nina Nu" (Lou Ann vocal)

Notes and Comments:
  • Recorded at Jack "Cowboy" Clement's home studio. The booklet that accompanies the disc claims that the CD was taken from an acetate (the only source known to exist, apparently any tapes were destroyed or deteriorated). The inserts are numbered and limited to 1000 copies. Includes Jackie Newhouse on bass and Lou Ann Barton, vocals. Some tracks are similar to "The First Thunder," but most are different. Great sound quality but has "feel of listening to a slightly worn LP."
  • With the exception of this and a few other CDs, I have yet to see a bootleg CD for which there was not a better sounding analog cassette recording available.
  • The Nashville '78 boot features Lou Ann singing lead on half of the tracks as follows:

    • (Track 1) "You Can Have My Husband"
    • (Track 4) "Oh Yeah"
    • (Track 6) "Ti-Ni-Nee-Ni-Nu"
    • (Track 8) "I Wonder Why"
    • (Track 10) "Sugar Coated Loving"
  • I finally got the chance to compare the Nashville '78 recording with First Thunder. When you A/B these recordings it is fairly obvious on most tracks that they are not the same (lyric differences, SRV solo differences, etc). On the other tracks, where the differences are a little more subtle, if you follow the drummer it becomes clear that these are indeed different recordings.
  • I checked your review and it sounded like whoever did it had never heard it before.
    I have it and must say that I have around 30 srv CD/tapes and it is by far the best I have. Quality is above average for a limited edition CD. My CD is number 656. This is Stevie when he truly was the hurricane, Stevie speeding, musically and physically. Number 1 or piece of shit probably wasn't completely trashed yet but listening to this CD shows you where it would get it's name. Stevie's vocals show signs of his insecurity in his own voice but they are truly unfounded. As far as vocals go, Lou Ann's a whalin' fool, this is early enough that her voice still has signs of clarity, at least as much as she ever had. This is by far, at least in my opinion, the best SRV CD I have ever heard, everyone that has heard it has completely been amazed.
