Texas Flood was Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble's blistering debut album, released in 1983. Already local legends in Austin, Stevie and the band—a power trio with Chris Layton on drums and Tommy Shannon on bass—became the first unsigned and unrecorded act ever to play the Montreux Jazz Festival. Eventually they caught the eye of legendary A&R man John Hammond, who signed them to Epic. The tunes on Texas Flood comprised Double Trouble's sets during those early days, and are played here with the same unrelenting passion heard in those Austin clubs.
July Reign are the brainchild of guitarist Sheldon Scrivner who, having heard Evidence One, contacted vocalist Carsten "Lizard" Schulz to enquire if he was interested in collaborating with Scrivner and long-time cohort drummer Mark Duran. The evidence of that conversation is what we have here…
Texas Flood is the first studio album by the American blues rock band Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, released on June 13, 1983 by Epic Records. The album was named after a cover featured on the album "Texas Flood", recorded by blues singer Larry Davis in 1958. Produced by the band and recording engineer Richard Mullen, it was recorded in only three days at Jackson Browne's personal recording studio in Los Angeles. Vaughan wrote six of the ten tracks on Texas Flood. The album peaked at #38 on the Billboard 200 chart immediately after its release. It went platinum in Canada and double-platinum in the United States.
Dreamtide features the guitarist and chief songwriter from Fair Warning - Helge Engelke, along with he fellow band mates Torsten Luderwald (keyboards) and drummer CC Behrens. Rounding out this new band is vocalist Olaf Senkbeil (backing vox, Blind Guardian and ex-Jack's Hammer) & bassist Ole Hempelmann (Thunderhead). As expected, Dreamtide's sound relies heavily on the influences of Fair Warning and that band's unique flair for big tempo, big production sounding European hard rock.
The band Texas Flood was founded in 2004 by guitar player and lead singer Nenad Zlatanović. Since its early beginnigs, this band cherished a fierce blues rock sound. After several changes regarding band members, the Texas Flood band performs as a power trio since last fall, with a rhythm section that consists of drummer Vlada Golubović and bass player Ivan Čukić. The band performed on many important blues and rock festivals in Serbia and in neighbouring countries, the most important of which are Voxstock 2007, Blues Summit Podgorica 07, Danube Blues Fest Novi Sad 07, In Wires Užice 2008, Mostar Blues Fest 2008 and BluesStock 2009. The first album, „Grinnin’ In Your Face“, issued in January 2009 by Blues Time Records, consisted of seven original songs written by Nenad Zlatanović…

When Hurricane Katrina struck, Milton “Alabama Slim” Frazier and his cousin Little Freddie King made it out of New Orleans with their lives but not much else. The story of their encounter with the storm is related in the two versions of the Mighty Flood that bookend this disc’s dozen selections and give it its name.
Slim, who takes the vocals on all but two tracks, comes by his nickname honestly- he was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama and stands almost seven feet tall. As harrowing as his account of Katrina is, it gains power from its understated delivery (like John Lee Hooker’s Tupelo, on which it was modeled)……….
Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters take to the road in the live double album Flood, recorded and released only in Japan. Contrary to the impression left by his American releases at this time, Hancock was still very much attached to the acoustic piano, as his erudite opening workout on "Maiden Voyage/Actual Proof" with his funk rhythm section makes clear. The electric keyboards, mostly Rhodes piano and clavinet, make their first appearances on side two, where Hancock now becomes more of a funky adjunct to the rhythm section, bumping along with a superb feeling for the groove while Bennie Maupin takes the high road above on a panoply of winds.
