One of the most memorable performances of Stevie Ray Vaughan's career took place at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland in 1985. Recorded on July 17, 1985, "Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble: Live at Montreux 1985" captures Vaughan at the peak of his powers, delivering a blistering set that showcases his virtuosic guitar playing and electrifying stage presence. From the moment Vaughan and Double Trouble took to the stage, the audience was captivated by the sheer intensity of their performance. Opening with the gritty blues-rock anthem "Scuttle Buttin'," Vaughan wasted no time in showcasing his unparalleled skill on the guitar, his fingers flying across the fretboard with lightning speed and precision. Throughout the concert, Vaughan and Double Trouble treated fans to a mix of blues classics and original compositions, including electrifying renditions of "Pride and Joy," "Texas Flood," and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)." Each song was imbued with Vaughan's trademark intensity and passion, as he poured his heart and soul into every note, his powerful voice and searing guitar solos cutting through the air with razor-sharp clarity. Highlights of the concert included Vaughan's soulful rendition of "The Sky is Crying," which showcased his emotive vocals and expressive guitar playing, as well as a jaw-dropping performance of "Little Wing," a tribute to Vaughan's hero Jimi Hendrix. Throughout the song, Vaughan's guitar soared and wailed, channeling the spirit of Hendrix himself and leaving the audience in awe of his virtuosity. As the concert drew to a close, Vaughan and Double Trouble delivered an electrifying encore, culminating in a raucous rendition of "Wham!" that had the crowd on their feet and begging for more.
