Notes and Comments:
My fav boot is "Guitar Boogie" 1978 Austin. Killer old SRV doing some of my favorite tunes like Freddie King's "Tore Down."
Hate to tell you this but most of that album (Guitar Boogie) is the Steamboat 1980 concert commercially released. Different song order and recorded at a slower speed. Check it out yourself. Stevie never played the same way twice. On these 2 CD's he does. It does contain 4 songs that are not on the steamboat CD though.
I have Guitar Boogie and it was recorded in Austin in 1978 and the quailty is so-so. I can't remember the actual price I paid but it was no more than $15.00 But it does have "Rockin' Daddy" on it, it kicks major ass.
I think that Guitar Boogie is the same as In The Beginning, only with extra bonus tracks. I got a tape of this recently, thinking it was something that I didn't already have, and discovered that this was a crappy recording of In the Beginning (commercial version) and Don't Mess With Texas (bootleg). If the tape is any indication of the sound quality of the Guitar Boogie disc, DEFINITELY do not buy Guitar Boogie, but do buy Don't Mess With Texas. The sound quality difference is night and day.
