Notes and Comments:
Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble featuring Buddy Guy recorded live at the Pier 84, NYC, 23rd July, 1983.
Excellent, but the recording appears to have come off a vocal mike and there is lots of crowd noise - not too distracting, though. One good fold out picture of SRV and Buddy Guy as the liner notes.
Pier 83 (sic) is a great version of Rude Mood, but then I reckon they're all great! Some days the fast aggro versions make my hair stand up on end , some days the acoustic version (MTV) does it for me but a real fave is the early version: on the 1979 First Thunder boot. This country/rockabilly laid back version has the joy of life written all over it ; guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Stevie must've got a real buzz playing this one in the clubs.
