Thats where I got started with In Step I loved all the songs on the radio so I bought it. For having a fake sound Steive never lost the blues. He still had the blues on Leave My Girl Alone with a more softer tone. I always loved Stevie Ray's studio albums but no one could compare to him when he was LIVE. I think for most In Step is a great way to get started with Vaughans music. Their still is his classics like Couldn't Stand The Weather, and Texas Flood. I always have stated In Step as One Of Stevie Ray's Best. This is a must have for anybody ready to listen to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Highly Recomened!
I'm less fond of slightly formulaic hard rock songs like "Wall Of Denial", "Crossfire" and "Tightrope", however. They are not bad, but they are a little bit generic, in spite of the good lyrics, and instrumentally they are not nearly as impressive or as innovative as Vaughan' best songs.
The cover of Buddy Guy's "Leave My Girl" alone is nice, though, as is the simple, straight-ahead rock n' roll of "Scratch-N-Sniff" and Stevie Ray does a good "Love Me Darlin'", even though he can't hope to match the amazing, gravelly pipes of its author, blues legend Howlin' Wolf.
A very fine, acoustic instrumental ends the original LP track list, but this remastered CD reissue offers an additional five bonus tracks, including fiery live takes of "Let Me Love You Baby" and "The House Is Rockin'", and the 13-minute non-LP tune "Life Without You", a soulful blues ballad.
Not Stevie Ray Vaughan's best record, but certainly not one to shy away from, either.
3 3/4 stars.
