Love this one by Jimmie and Stevie!



I just finished reading the Stevie Ray Vaughan biography, an excellent read (er, audible, even better!). Made me realize I hadn't listened to Family Style in a few years. A tremendous album, made right before Stevie died.

Good stuff

I love the sound and groove of this album- it just pops!

I love the contrast of Jimmie's Vibratone effect ( actually a Peavey) steel guitar against SRV's Strat on "Hillbillies from Outer Space" great tune!

Sad , " Tick Tock" was just getting radio airplay when SRV passed-

That record gets spun on my iPod quite often. Nile Rodgers' production and contributions to the tunes took it to a whole 'nuther place.

I bought it on cassette right when it came out, and listened to it all the time. I haven't heard it in years, no - decades, either. I'll have to pull it out again. Thanks.
