A real gem. Master and master pupil performing in one of the kind session. Stevie Ray Vaughan, bar none is one of my favorite guitarist and I was hooked to his playing from early age. Magical energy and interplay in this legendary jam session encapsulate unprecedented blues musical recording, that stands in time and space. Must have!
New tip-on gatefold jacket with extra photos inside!
200-gram 45 RPM double LP pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
In Session, recorded in 1983, is the only known recording of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan performing together. Its long-overdue commercial release (the album didn't come out until 1999) stands as a fitting tribute to the genius of two of the greatest musicians ever to have played the blues on electric guitar. Now, it's available on vinyl for the first time.
We've taken our original Analogue Productions pressing of this classic and raised the bar. It's now on a gorgeous 200-gram solid slab of Quality Record Pressings vinyl, the best there is. And we've replaced the original single-pocket jacket with a Stoughton Printing tip-on old-style model, with newly-added photos inside. Truly a luxurious repressing indeed!
Anyone who's witnessed a much-anticipated jam session only to be disappointed - with each participant deferring to the other, the end result being that neither ever got out of first gear — will welcome this pairing of two giants of blues guitar. Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan obviously shared a mutual admiration, but it simply wasn't in either one's makeup to a) be intimidated or b) take a backseat to anyone. Not without kicking up a little dust.
This is such a precious set to any fan of either of these blues giants. In addition to the free-spirited jams, there are priceless episodes of conversation between each song, both men exchanging accolades and King giving the much younger Vaughan (though tragically it was Vaughan who died first) some sage advice. This simply is a must-have.
Analogue Productions introduced test pressings from their Stax Records reissue at the June 2003 Home Entertainment Expo in San Francisco. Among the exhibitors to show off their wares using these yet-to-be-released 45s was Richard Vandersteen of Vandersteen Audio.
