In Session, recorded in 1983, is the only known recording of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan performing together. Its long-overdue commercial release (the album didn't come out until 1999) stands as a fitting tribute to the genius of two of the greatest musicians ever to have played the blues on electric guitar. Stunning sound, mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray!

In Session, recorded in 1983, is the only known recording of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan performing together. Its long-overdue commercial release (the album didn't come out until 1999) stands as a fitting tribute to the genius of two of the greatest musicians ever to have played the blues on electric guitar.

 

Anyone who's witnessed a much-anticipated jam session only to be disappointed with each participant deferring to the other, the end result being that neither ever got out of first gear, will welcome this pairing of two giants of blues guitar. Albert and Stevie Ray obviously shared a mutual admiration, but it simply wasn't in either one's makeup to be intimidated or take a backseat to anyone.

 

In addition to the free-spirited jams, there are priceless dialogues of conversation between each song included here as well with both men exchanging accolades and King giving the much younger Vaughan some sage advice.

 

Analogue Productions has taken their original pressing of this classic recording and raised the bar. It's now on double 200-gram 45rpm vinyl courtesy of Quality Record Pressings and they've replaced the original single-pocket jacket with a Stoughton Printing tip-on old-style model, featuring newly-added photos inside.

 

 

"Recorded in December 1983, In Session captures an in-concert jam between Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the latter of whom had become the hot blues guitarist of the year thanks to his debut Texas Flood, as well as his work on David Bowie's hit Let's Dance. Vaughan may have been the new news, but King was not suffering, either. He had a world-class supporting band and was playing as well as he ever had. In other words, the stage was set for a fiery, exciting concert and that's exactly what they delivered. Vaughan was clearly influenced by King - there are King licks all over his first two recorded efforts, and it was an influence that stayed with him to the end - and he was unafraid to go toe-to-toe with his idol. King must have been impressed, since In Session never devolves into a mere cutting contest. Instead, each musicians spurs the other to greater heights. For aficionados of either guitarist, that means the album isn't just worth a listen - it means that it's a record that sounds as exciting on each subsequent listen as does the first time through." ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music
