The 1996 concert video A Tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan gathers Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, B.B. King, Art Neville, Dr. John, and brother Jimmie Vaughan to celebrate the talent and life of the modern electric blues guitar virtuoso. Double Trouble and the Tilt-a-Whirl Band support these stars as they interpret Vaughan's songbook in an 80-minute concert; brief interviews with the featured artists enrich the proceedings with even more respect and affection. Highlights of Vaughan's performance on the PBS series Austin City Limits hit home just how great a talent was lost when he was killed in 1990. Ultimately, though, A Tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan focuses on the uplifting memory of his warmth and musical gifts, keeping them alive with the help of his very able friends.
By 1988, Stevie Ray Vaughan, newly clean and sober, was playing with more conviction and clarity than ever before. This positive new direction resulted in 1989's In Step, his fourth and final Epic studio recording with Double Trouble. In Step reveals a newfound sense of depth in SRV's songwriting. And his trademark aggressive guitar playing is imbued with a cathartic intensity that kicks the band up to another level. In Step won Stevie Ray his second Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Blues Recording and cemented his status as a guitar hero and an American music legend.
