But don't you think he kind of redeemed himself during his late 80s resurgence?

Hello, Old Friend
Cocaine [i hate this song btw]
Let It Rain
etc
They aren't among my favorites, but I like them.

What I don't like was crap like "My Father's Eyes," which God knows there was too much of that nonsense throughout his solo albums.

TBH, what redeems him to me is his live performances. I don't much care for a number of his albums as a whole, but yeah, I guess you could say that. I have his DVD from Montreux in '86 I believe it is, for the most part is phenomenal. Predictably, some of the "new" tracks suck, but he's fantastic in it and worth checking out.

Too bad, that's no where near me either. Hey wasn't Stevie Ray on tour with Clapton when he died?

I'll graverob his skull and post it on ISH if I have to. That is a fake screenshot. The only solution to this is Masroor posting on ISH saying he is alive. Other than that, those are false. Afghans are never wrong

You've been sonned, son.

Everything he's ever touched, but first album for starters.

My first SVR album was Live Alive, and I think that is a pretty good starting point.

It's not his greatest performance, but well rounded.

What direction do you think his music would have moved if he were still alive?

Just go from the beginning, I'd say. There's no "wrong" place to start. Pick up a live DVD to get the full essence.

"Superstition" from that album is off the hook.

He never would've went the pop/mainstream route that Clapton did. What was amazing about Stevie is that he made blues relevant again after twenty years off or so. His ability as a songwriter was mediocre at best on his first album, but as he progressed he really made great strides in that department.
