AllMusic Review by

This is a fine 16-track introduction to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Here are the early rollicking blues hits like "Texas Flood," "Couldn't Stand the Weather," and "Cold Shot," to the middle period Hendrix-drenched "Say What?" "Come On, Pt. 3," and the late R&B-drenched tunes such as "Crossfire," "Tightrope," and "The House Is Rockin'." There is also a live version of Elmore James' "The Sky Is Crying" tagged on at the end that digs deep into blues history. This is a great introduction for novices and a cool comp for those who already have everything.
