We Are Called Double Trouble



We Are Called Double Trouble - various club shows plus studio material
[Dandelion, DL 008/9/10/11/12] (5CD set) (Netherlands, 1998)
CD 1: [DL008] (72:02, 17 tracks)
Live at The Soap Creek Saloon, Austin, Texas, 02-Mar-79
Tracks 9-13 include Lou Ann Barton on vocals.
Average audience recording with good sound mix. The vocals are clear and loud but the bass guitar is quite saturated and makes the music difficult to listen to sometimes, especially on "Boilermaker" and the tracks that follow. The mix changes a little in the middle of the show and when Lou Ann sings. Probably from a very low generation master as there's nearly no noise and hiss.

01) Instrumenta (l2:42) (incomplete - cuts in)
02) Jeff's Boogie (2:28) "Rude Mood"

Live at The Cascade Room in The Knickerbocker Cafe, Westerly, RI, 22-Nov-79

Very good sound quality, possibly from a soundboard source. The sound mix is good but the crowd noise and guitar are on one side with the bass and drums on the other.

Notes and Comments:
  • These "new" CDs: Holiday (CT 78), Live at Lupos (live 79), Live at the Silk Creek Saloon (live 79), Through the Night (RI 79) are actually part of the 5-CD set. I believe what's happening here is that the place that's selling these is making the individual discs available separately, and is either getting these titles off of the discs or they're attempting to put their own "titles" to them. SRV never played at the Silk Creek Saloon, but he DID play at the Soap Creek.
  • We Are Called Double Trouble (below?)Average audience recording. Good mix, the voice is "clear" and loud, the bass guitar is quite saturated and makes the whole music difficult to listen to sometimes, especially on the Jazzy instrumental and the following tracks. The mix changes a little in the middle of the show and when Lou Ann sings. Probably a very low generation master as there's nearly no noise and hiss.
  • Recorded Live at The Soap Creek Saloon, Austin Texas, April 1979 (part1)

  • Live from The Cascade Room at The Knickerbocker Cafe, Westerly, RI, Nov.22nd 1979
    Soundboard ? probably not but the sound is very good, very listenable anyway. Good mix but you get the crowd and guitar on one side and the Drums and vocals on the other side. The sound is really excellent compared to the first volume even if the voice and bass guitar are slightly saturated. Great show !
  • Live from Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel, Providence, RI, Nov.24th 1979
    Excellent audience recording. The mix is very good, clear and loud vocals. Nothing else to say. Stevie smokes that night !!
  • Live at the Holiday Inn, Groton CT., March 1980
    The Holiday Inn show has the best sound quality of this set. Excellent mix, clear vocals. Better than "FON" (IMHO). The studio tracks are the same as what you can find on "Nashville 1978".
  • This is a 5CD set. Mine came in a cardboard box with a poster, though I have not seen many of these complete for sale. Often seen for sale as individual CD's in a rapidly reducing number of places in London. I believe I have read within your pages that the 1980 date for the Groton gig has been questioned. I am not surprised. Before track 6 Come On (part 3) SRV introduces the band and it includes Tommy Shannon on fender base. This may be one of those gigs that he sat in on, or could it one of those gigs after Tommy joined the band. This would clearly push it well past 1980. Does anyone know?
    A great set of CD's with mega versions of Dirty Pool at every gig!
    If you can still get it, and don't have the money, or someone to CDR it for you, sell your granny, mother-in-law, sell the house or your body! It 's that good.
