Release Date:09/23/2016;Notes:200gm vinyl LP pressing. Comprised of ten previously unreleased studio performances Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble cut between late 1984 and early 1989, The Sky Is Crying serves as the legendary guitarist's unofficial "fifth" album as well as an homage to extraordinary musician's exceptional abilities as a musician, songwriter and interpreter. It also contains the tremendously moving "Life By the Drop," the first-ever recorded take of Vaughan playing acoustic guitar. Few, if any, posthumous collections are more complete, satisfying, and revealing as this 1990 set. When Vaughan was killed in a helicopter crash in August 1990, his brother, Jimmie, set to work on finding finished material that his younger sibling left in the vaults. To his surprise, there weren't many completed leftovers, save for the tracks on this set, which lent to the opinion that, in some way, Vaughan intended The Sky Is Crying to be an actual record. Nearly every song here had long found it's way into the group's live sets, including the supremely soulful title track, bathed in Reese Wynan's warm organ accompaniment. It would be a standout on most albums, but this effort is filled with such nonpareil matter.;Track List:1. Boot Hill;2. The Sky Is Crying;3. Empty Arms;4. Little Wing;5. Wham;6. May I Have a Talk with You;7. Close to You;8. Chitlins Con Carne;9. So Excited;10. Life By the Drop;Special Attributes:200 GRAM VINYL
