Stevie finally made his own wish come true in 1990: he recorded an album with the older brother he idolized, Jimmie Vaughan. It would prove to be his final studio album, released a month and a half after his death. Nile Rodgers produced as the two Texas titans took turns dazzling with guitar riffs both tantalizing and tasty on "Hard to Be," "White Boots," "Good Texan," "Hillbillies from Outer Space," "Long Way from Home," "Telephone Song" and more. Inside the deluxe tip-on gatefold jacket you’ll find your 200-gram vinyl LP, newly mastered from the original tapes! Acoustic Sounds.
200 gram vinyl LP pressing. Family Style is the lone studio album from Stevie Ray Vaughan and his brother Jimmie Vaughan, issued in September of 1990 nearly a month after Stevie Ray's tragic death in a helicopter crash at just 35-years-old. Produced by Chic's Nile Rodgers and sans either guitarists longtime bands (Double Trouble or the Fabulous Thunderbirds), the easygoing affair served as a celebration of both brothers newfound sobriety and their future musical endeavors together. The triumphant release entered the charts at No. 7 thanks to the runaway Motown/soul-inspired hit single "Tick Tock" and was a double 1990 Grammy Award-winner (Best Contemporary Blues Album and Best Rock Instrumental Performance - "D/FW"). Both Stevie Ray and Jimmie are in top form trading licks and guitar styles with further standouts coming in the form of the compelling numbers "Telephone Song," "Hard to Be," and "Long Way From Home."
