Recorded live on November 29th, 1989 in Denver while Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble were on tour for their new album, “In Step”. The Show at Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque, NM / McNichols Arena, Denver, CO recorded over two nights November 28th/29th, 1989. A great Soundboard recording.

However, that night Stevie Ray, along with guest guitarist Jeff Beck, did not focus strictly on playing songs from the album, but instead had fun rocking out on versions of Stevie Wonder’s ‘Superstition’ and Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Voodoo Child,’ both of which are included famously here. During their performance of ‘Life Without You,’ one of Vaughan’s earlier songs, the newly reformed guitar hero even took the time to speak out on substance abuse and plead with his audience not to go down the same road he had.
