APO presents what must be the greatest Stevie Ray Vaughan tribute collection ever made. Vaughan single-handedly ignited the blues revival of the ’80s. His eclectic and fiery style bridged the gap between blues and rock like no other artist had since the late ’60s. Vaughan’s tragic death in 1990 only emphasized his influence on both the blues and American rock & roll. Texas Hurricane features six of Vaughan’s classic albums – Texas Flood, Couldn’t Stand the Weather, Soul to Soul, In Step, Family Style and The Sky Is Cryin’ – specially remastered for SACD by Sterling Sound.
