Notes:
I would call this "Mr. Cool Himself" if I was a boot title creator. That is what Stevie says when Jimmy is joing him on stage. This is truly a must have show with a great setlist and a special bonus of Jimmy Vaughan joining in on a few tracks.
The intro to Texas Flood is beyond mind blowning, just incredible pickin'. It's truly priceless!!!!!
I downloaded these FLAC files from Wolfgangs Vault. They are 100% lossless and really a major upgrade to any lossy bitrate version circulated. I have tested this vs other versions I have recieved and all versions I had were lossy.

Guest: Jimmy Vaughan - guitar on "Cold Shot" and "Couldn't Stand The Weather"

Review:
Backed by the simple two man rhythm section dubbed Double Trouble (bassist Tommy Shannon had previously backed another Texas blues master, Johnny Winter) Vaughan plays with fire and intensity throughout this show. Original hits like "Pride & Joy" and "Cold Shot" are here, as are a number of classic blues instrumentals, such as "Testify," which he uses to both open and close the show. But the real highlight of the set is Vaughan's blistering read of Jimi Hendrix's blues-rock classic, "Voodoo Chile," which Vaughan plays with an intensity nearly as powerful as the Hendrix original. You won't even care that the first verse's vocals are missing (the sound engineer forgot to turn up Vaughan's vocal mic until he went to the chorus of the song); Vaughan's guitar sings loud enough.

As one would expect, another sure highlight is the two song combo featuring Vaughan's older brother, Jimmy, of The Fabulous Thunderbirds fame. Rock was in the blood for these boys, and the brothers, with help from Double Trouble, show the audience how Texas truly plays the blues. A must for blues and rock fans anywhere.
