It also contains the tremendously moving Life By the Drop, the first-ever recorded take of Vaughan playing acoustic guitar.

With the set never before remastered in any form, Mobile Fidelity has taken the honors seriously, remastering from the original master tapes and presenting these life-affirming songs in jaw-dropping fidelity on hybrid SACD. At times, it feels as if you are sitting in the studio control room with the band just a few feet away, as nearly every selection here was recorded live with minimal overdubs. The degree of presence, immediacy, and detail is on par with the best-sounding blues albums on LP or CD in existence.
