Stevie Ray Vaughan: The Sky Is Crying (1991)

SRV sky is cryingBy Scott Goldfine

Thrilling blues-based guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan’s albums have always been mixed bags. But the posthumous “The Sky Is Crying,” meticulously compiled by brother Jimmie Vaughan, is his most bluesy and consistently satisfying collection ever. These 10 tracks, mostly covers (including four instrumentals), convey Vaughan’s roots.

It’s all delivered with seething vigor and feeling.
