In 2001, Live in Montreux ’82 & ’85, a two-CD set featuring the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, was set for a November 6th release date. The first CD from 1982 features Vaughan before he was an international star. In fact, despite playing songs that would eventually become classics over there, like “Pride and Joy,” “Texas Flood” and “Love Struck Baby,” the Swiss audience reacted to Vaughan’s early gig with boos and catcalls. The second CD, recorded just three years later in ’85, has Vaughan as a headliner, and he is cheered by the crowd.
