Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan In Session

04 febrero 2009 | |

Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan In Session is a Blues album by Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded live for TV in 1983 at CHCH-TV studios in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and released as an album in 1999.
This album is notable as this is the only known recording of Stevie Ray Vaughan and his idol Albert King together. It was recorded for one of a series of live television sessions recording the performances of various artists. The TV show was called In Session. Another interesting aspect of the album is that it includes short audio segments of the banter between the artists between songs (remembering that this was being broadcast as well).
Initially King wasn't going to do the show as he didn't know who Stevie Ray Vaughan was. He didn't realize that Stevie Ray Vaughan was actually 'little Stevie', the 'skinny kid' that he let sit in when King played in Texas. On one of the conversation tracks, King actually talks about this. When he realized who Stevie Ray Vaughan was, he agreed to play.
The album's material is mostly King's concert line up, with one Stevie Ray Vaughan cut, "Pride and Joy." King is 'driving' the session, but he purposefully features Vaughan on a number of the songs.
