Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble burn it up at the El Mocambo, a small club, performing a small set list. During the concert Vaughan pulls off some Hendrix style guitar heroics. He does whammy bar tricks, bangs it on he floor, and makes noises with it. He also plays it behind his back. Written by Erik Kirchner

Awesome performance, excellent concert film
10 December 2006 | by (Midwest USA) – See all my reviews

You'll get exhausted watching Stevie Ray Vaughan crank out this incredible performance long before Stevie does. Sweat pouring off his sparse frame, he delivers heartpounding riff after riff on every song in this movie, leaving you wondering how he possibly had anything left for the next one.

My personal favorite is the 9-minute version of "Texas Flood," which includes some of the tightest, fastest playing ever captured on film. And it's captured well by multiple cameras worked by people who knew what they were doing. What a welcome relief from the drugged-out, out of focus zoom work that has marred so many classic performance movies -- the 1973 docu "Jimi Hendrix" is a prime example, though still worth watching for sure.

But back to Stevie. He was a little guy, all skin and bones, and hands. Like Hendrix he seemed to be gifted with hands belonging to some other, much larger person. His hands were so big that he used extra-wide guitar necks most of the time. He once described his style thus: "I use heavy strings, tune low and floor it. Floor it." See the results for yourself in this terrific film. Buy the DVD so you can jump right to your favorite tracks.
