Stevie Ray Vaughan: In Step (1989)

SRV in step

By Scott Goldfine

Stellar blues axeman Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Trouble swing into action with “In Step,” their first studio LP in nearly four years. The 10-track disc, which includes two instrumentals, is a veritable melting pot of blues-rock stylings.

The traditional blues of “Leave My Girl Alone” and the funky “Crossfire” delight, while the ethereal jazz piece “Riviera Paradise” reveals Vaughan’s depth.
