Stevie Ray Vaughan The Kings Head CD

This fabulous radio broadcast comes from The King’s Head Inn, a tiny venue popular with students near the Old Dominion University campus, in Norfolk, Virginia, that could accommodate barely 100 people.
Luckily, local radio station WNOR was on hand to preserve this storming performance made on July 20th 1980 by soon-to-become-legendary Blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Although Stevie Ray Vaughan would become a prolific song writer, this evening’s set includes just two of his own compositions: “I’m Cryin’” and “Love Struck Baby”.
Both of these songs would subsequently appear on his first album, “Texas Flood” which was released in 1983; the latter song was also issued as a single that same year.
The other songs in the set are drawn from the catalogues of Stevie’s blues heroes.
Opening proceedings is a fine version of Freddie King’s perennial “Hideaway”. There are two numbers originally written by “Howlin’ Wolf (Chester Burnett) – “Love Me Darlin’” and “I’m Leaving You (Commit A Crime )”.
Tipping his Stetson to Jimi Hendrix are versions of the master’s own “Little Wing” and “Driving South”, a song popularised by Hendrix but actually written by Curtis Knight.
Completing a stonking set are Robert Geddins’ “Tin Pan Alley” and, of course, Larry Davis and Joseph Wade Scott’s 1958 Blues classic, which also provided the title of his debut, “Texas Flood”.
