Editor's NoteThree years is a long time in the music industry, as these incredible concerts indefatigably prove. The first takes place in 1982. A young bluseman takes to the stage at the Montreux Festival, ably backed by a highly competent band. The cynical crowd doesn't take kindly to the virtuoso skills presented for their listening pleasure, and the beleaguered future star is booed and heckled throughout. Fortunately the worldly wise figure of Jackson Browne has his head turned at the concert, and proceeds to offer the flowering talents of Stevie Ray Vaughan some precious studio time. Fast forward three years to 1985, and Vaughan returns to the festival. Now the headline act, the ultimate vindication for Stevie is provided by a crowd which hangs on his every movement. Both concerts are presenting here, offering a tremendous way to experience Vaughan's music and rise to fame, as well as offering precious hope for any aspiring artists who meet with a frosty reception from a hostile crowd.
