By adding two members to Double Trouble - keyboardist Reese Wynans and saxophonist Joe Sublett - Stevie Ray Vaughan indicated he wanted to add soul and R&B inflections to his basic blues sound, and Soul to Soul does exactly that. It's still a modern blues album, yet it has a wider sonic palette, finding Vaughan fusing a variety of blues, rock, and R&B styles. Most of this is done through covers - notably Hank Ballard's Look at Little Sister, the exquisitely jazzy Gone Home, and Doyle Bramhall's impassioned soul-blues Change It - but Vaughan's songwriting occasionally follows suit, as well. There is the tortured blues wailer Ain't Gone 'N' Give Up On Love and he throws in some delightful soul-funk touches on Say What!, the instrumental wah-wah workout that kicks off the album. And the Curtis Mayfield-inspired closer Life Without You captures Vaughan at his best as a composer and performer. Soul to Soul clearly points the way to his 1989 masterpiece, In Step.
