Stevie Ray Vaughan celebrated his 30th birthday in style in 1984, turning New York’s Carnegie Hall into a blistering Texas roadhouse for a sold out audience. Backed by Double Trouble (bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton) and featuring an all-star guest list that included Dr. John on piano and organ, brother Jimmie Vaughan on guitar and horn players from Roomful of Blues, it’s easy to hear why Stevie Ray deemed the show his “best birthday ever, forever.” Live At Carnegie Hall is available as a limited 2LP opaque brown vinyl set, exclusively for Record Store Day 2017.

“Live at Carnegie Hall” was the ninth album (and third live album) by the AmericanBlues rock guitarist and his band Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, originally released by Epic Records in July 1997. The album consists of live selections from their sold-out October 4th, 1984 benefit concert at Carnegie Hall . Backed by a ten-piece for the second half of the event.
