To celebrate Stevie Ray Vaughan's 60th birthday, Epic Records and Legacy Recordings are releasing for the first time, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble: The Complete Epic Recordings Collection on October 28th. The compilation will include rare, hard-to-find archival tracks, as well as the first commercial release of A Legend In The Making,  a highly collectible (formerly) promotional-only recording of SRV & DT's incendiary performance at Toronto's El Mocambo club in 1983.

When Stevie Ray formed SRV & Double Trouble in 1978, he was hellbent on revitalizing the blues for contemporary audiences.  Stevie Ray served as the power trio's charismatic frontman and evangelical electric guitarist, driven and underscored by drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon. The band's reputation as a transcendent live experience gained considerable traction following a watershed performance at the Montreux International Jazz Festival in 1982 (included in The Complete Epic Recordings Collection).  Recommended to the label by A&R giant John Hammond, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble recorded the band's studio debut, Texas Flood, for Epic Records in 1983.  Going on to achieve RIAA double platinum status, Texas Flood opened the gates for a flow of gold, platinum and multiplatinum albums for Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, an unprecedented achievement for any blues act.
 
Stevie Ray Vaughan died in a helicopter crash on August 27, 1990, following an awe-inspiring performance with Double Trouble and Eric Clapton at the Alpine Valley Resort in Wisconsin.  Though his mainstream career only lasted seven years, Stevie Ray Vaughan continues to garner accolades and admiration years after his untimely death. Named the 12th greatest guitarist of all time by Rolling Stone, Stevie Ray Vaughan earned six Grammy Awards, 10 Austin Music Awards and was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2000 and the Musicians Hall of Fame in 2014.
 
This special collection is a must have for any Stevie Ray Vaughan fan.
