Mastered from the original analog tapes by Sterling Sound

First 1,000 boxes gold foil-numbered

"The new remastering sounds amazing. Better than it ever did. I'm happy and pleasantly surprised." — Chris "Whipper" Layton

"I've also heard test pressings of these SRV albums and they will rock your world!" — Michael Fremer, editor, AnalogPlanet.com

"...it just may be that what we have here is the best replication of the master tapes to date...beautiful pressings of the six LPs. They've never sounded better." — Gregg Geller, producer and A&R man

"This is visceral, hair-raising stuff." — Andy Aledort, senior editor of Guitar World and author of the liner notes for Analogue Productions' Stevie Ray Vaughan Box Set

"These recordings have never sounded this good, and likely will never sound better. Layers seem to have been stripped away, and the music seems to have been set free. Vaughan's guitar has new bite and edge...sonically, all questions have now been answered: Texas Hurricane is the Stevie Ray set to own and enjoy." — Performance = 5 Stars, Sonics = 5 Stars. Robert Baird, Stereophile, July 2014. Read Baird's full review here: http://www.stereophile.com/content/recording-july-2014-texas-hurricane

We've gone completely all-out for this project. We've used the original 30 inches-per-second, half-inch analog master tapes for all of these studio albums as well as for the bonus tracks included on the SACDs. Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound cut the lacquers for the LPs using the ultimate VMS 80 cutting lathe. Gary Salstrom handled the plating and the vinyl was pressed of course at Quality Record Pressings. Andy Aledort, senior editor for Guitar World, wrote the liners with contributions from Stevie Ray Vaughan biographer Craig Hopkins. This set includes a deluxe booklet. And all of the records are housed in a deluxe box (the first 1,000 are gold foil-numbered).

We've also used the correct original master for Soul To Soul. Every version of this record since 1999 has been from an incorrect source with the wrong take of the track "Life Without You." We've got it just as the original.

Another factor separating these SRV SACDS — they include bonus tracks sourced from the original master tapes.

There's not a link in this chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy.

But beyond that we've poured our passion into this project. Acoustic Sounds is a big fan of the blues and Stevie Ray Vaughan. It's a big dream come true to work on this project and to make these records sound and look the best they ever have.

___________________________________________________________________________________

What if. What if everything that Acoustic Sounds customers have come to know and worship about the sonic superiority of Acoustic Sounds' Hybrid SACDs could be brought to bear on one of the rockingest powerhouses of blues guitar who ever lived?

Then your wish is granted. We're about to rock your world with the greatest Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute ever reissued: Six of Vaughan's most classic album titles combined in the ultimate box sets - both LP and Hybrid SACD - for ultimate blues and guitar fanatics!

With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Stevie Ray Vaughan ignited the blues revival of the '80s. Vaughan drew equally from bluesmen like Albert King, Otis Rush and Hubert Sumlin and rock & roll players like Jimi Hendrix and Lonnie Mack, as well as the stray jazz guitarist like Kenny Burrell, developing a uniquely eclectic and fiery style that sounded like no other guitarist, regardless of genre. Vaughan bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late '60s. For about seven years, Stevie Ray Vaughan was the leading light in American blues, consistently selling out concerts while his albums regularly went gold. His tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence in blues and American rock & roll.

This is classic Stevie Ray Vaughan, meticulously remastered from the analog tapes by New York's Sterling Sound. In each set you'll receive Texas Flood, Couldn't Stand the Weather, Soul to Soul, In Step, plus the posthumous classics Family Style and The Sky Is Crying.

Those of you familiar with our previous box sets - Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk, Creedence Clearwater Revival - and soon to come, The Doors - know how deluxe these sets are. From the detailed liner notes to the rarest photographs, these sets will truly be gems.

Each SACD set will feature a look inside the career of a legend whose death at age 35 shocked the music world. A few statistics showcase Vaughan's success and musical influence: His debut album Texas Flood, reached No. 38 on the charts, crossing over to rock radio stations. The album's succesor, Couldn't Stand the Weather, released in May 1984, reached No. 31 on the charts; by the end of 1985 it went gold. Vaughan and his band, Double Trouble, recorded their third album, Soul to Soul, released in August 1985, and it reached No. 34 on the charts.

These box sets will exceed your expectations, whether you're an LP or SACD enthusiast. We guarantee it.

The BEST sounding SRV

Reviewer: Modal Jazz
I am a huge SRV fan, have all his original vinyl pressings, CDs released in the 90s and some of the SACDs put out by Mo-Fi. The SACDs in this box set are the best I have ever heard these albums. Very clear sound, but not sterile. Depending on the song the music goes from soft to very dynamic and forward projecting sound instantly, that is to say the dynamics lend itself to a 3D projection with fantastic soundstage and imaging. This is probably as close to open reel master tape playback as it gets!
