Rough Edges - studio & live material, live material from the 1979 California tour
[Totanka, CDPR019] (1996) (73:52, 19 tracks)
With Lou Ann Barton on lead vocals (tracks 7-11,15,16)
Tracks 1-12 May have been recorded at the Tempico Grande, Felton, CA, 1979
Tracks 13-17 are probably from the KFAT "Fat Fry", Gilroy, CA
Track 18 includes SRV with W.C Clark on guitar and the Cobras. Originally released as a Cobra's single on [Hole Records, HR-1520], 1979
Track 19 is taken from Stevie's early record with The Cast Of Thousands entitled "A New Hi" [Tempo 2, T2-1], from 1971.
Sound quality on tracks 1-12 is good but has a pronounced wow effect on some tracks. Tracks 13-17 are excellent quality, as is the Cobra's track. The track from 1971 has been recorded from a somewhat scratchy record but is still very listenable.

Notes and Comments:
Music from the late 70s. It is very cool listening to the beginnings of his greatness. This disc is awesome, 74 minutes of Stevie Vaughan.
This is a smokin' set. Nice packaging with less than detailed liner notes but nice pictues. Lou Ann Barton sings many of the songs and she is great. Stevie is raw just like we like him. Quality starts off a little weak in the bottom end but gets better. This is a great live SRV set. Really great version of Tin Pan Alley with Robert Cray...guess who gets smoked?
I personally have this boot and recommend it.
Studio track quality is good but has a pronounced wow effect on some tracks; the live material is excellent quality, as is the Cobra's track. The track from '71 has been recorded from a somewhat scratchy record but is still very listenable.
The studio material does not seem to be from the same sessions as the Jack Clement Nashville recordings. I'm wondering if it could actually be from the Joe Gracey recordings done at Electric Graceyland, Austin, TX., summer and fall 1979. The only other title I have with early Double Trouble material is "The First Thunder," and I know the material on that title does not correspond to this stuff.
Also, "Hip Hip Baby" and "Collins Shuffle" are the identical tracks found on "In The Open," so be warned.
