Overview

Live Alive is a magnificent double-length showcase for Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar playing, featuring a number of extended jams on a selection of most of the best material from Vaughan's first three albums, plus covers of "Willie the Wimp," "I'm Leaving You (Commit a Crime)," and Stevie Wonder's "Superstition." The album may not be exceptionally tight or concise, but then again, that's not the point. The renditions here sound less polished than the studio versions, with Vaughan's guitar tone bitingly down and dirty and his playing spontaneous and passionate.

Stevie Ray Vaughan was one of those performers who was at his best on stage. Live Alive collected some of the prime cuts off his first three LP's and added a few new songs. Stevie Wonder's Superstition is a standout. Since Vaughan's death, a lot of other live material has been released. How this ranks compared to those releases I can't say. It does serve as a best of for the first few years of his short career.
