****1/2 / 4
Stevie Ray Vaughan only lived long enough to release four studio albums and one live (everything else has come out after his tragic death in a 1990 helicopter accident). And every one of those four is accompanied by at least one review stating that THIS is Vaughan's greatest record. And probably by one saying that it is his worst as well.

Oh well. This is Stevie's third album, originally released in October 1985, and for "Soul To Soul", Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble abandoned their original trio format and included keyboardist Reese Wynans and (occationally) saxist Joe Sublett.

The music hasn't changed too much, though. It's still a superb blend of blues and rock, and even though Vaughan's guitar is perhaps a little less prominent on some songs, his playing is still masterful.
The material is very strong, with only one or two lesser tunes - like the forgettable opener "Say What!". "Soul To Soul" is highlighted by the slow blues ballad "Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love", the swinging "Empty Arms" in 2/4 time, and the terrific rockers "Change It", "Lookin' Out The Window" and "Look At Little Sister" (excellent piano playing on that last one, and a nice saxophone solo as well).

Stevie also covers Howlin' Wolf's "You'll Be Mine", and considering that no-one in the world has yet been able to match the vocal power and ferocious attitude of the Wolf, and probably never will, he does a good job with it.

The three bonus tracks consist of a short interview snippet and two songs. Well, three songs, actually, since Vaughan plays a medley of "Third Stone From The Sun" and Hendrix' "Little Wing".
They're perhaps not quite as interesting as some of the bonus cuts on the other three remastered Stevie Ray Vaughan-albums, but they're not bad by any means, and Vaughan's playing is great as always.

"Soul To Soul" has a very strong track list, and it is highly recommended to any and all lovers of blues-rock and contemporary blues music.
It rarely gets any better. In fact, it rarely gets this good.

Song "Taxman"
Let me tell you how it will be,
there's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small,
be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
if you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
if you take a walk, I'll tax your feet

Don't ask me what I want it for,
if you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm

I remembered something Keith Richards said about the late George Harrison when Saleski and I discussed underrated and overlooked guitarists on the BCRadio Podcast.. Richards said, ?The thing is, you've got your Jimi Hendrix, you've got your Eric Clapton, and then you've got guys who can play with bands.? Richards was not being uncomplimentary of Clapton or Hendrix. He was pointing out ...
