Stevie Ray Vaughan: Happy New Year Blues (CD)

LIVE BROADCAST FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA 31/12/1986 – FEATURING LONNIE MACK. The concert featured on this CD is taken from an FM radio broadcast, transmitted live from the Fox Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia, on New Year’s Eve ‘86, was clearly a dynamic event. Stevie and Double Trouble perform with gusto and flare, whilst the audience are wild with ecstasy. Joining Vaughan on stage after the new year kicks in is none other than guitar legend Lonnie Mack, and the two blues men bounce off each other beautifully for a magical rendition of Mack’s ‘Oreo Cookie Blues,’ which ends this extraordinary performance and readies Stevie Ray to enter what, tragically, would become the final, albeit majestic, era of his career - and sadly his life.
