Stevie Ray Vaughan
"Blues at Sunrise"

Released a decade after his death in 1990, this is an album of unreleased blues tracks, seeping from the hands of SRV the way only he could do it.

His sound was so unique, it makes his guitar unmistakeable from everything that came before or after.

I maintain the best thing a celebrity can do for their career is die, and I think often times SRV is elevated to a level as much because of his untimely demise as his music.

I think I've reached a point where I can say I'm just not the biggest fan of SRV. This music is all very cool, to be sure, but I just don't think it's really my cup of tea. May the ghost of SRV not haunt me now...
