SRV's style was gritty, no-frills and rooted in the blues, much like his influences and he kept that approach to his playing and songwriting. He didn't do much much branching out like Buchanan did, beyond the songs you mention, but he kept true to the Tex Mex and delta blues style which is basic, short songs. There are a few exceptions from each album, and flashes of him reaching for his next logical conclusion in his musicians journey, but you really won't get a full 'albums' worth of that kind of material, so waiting for anything of that sort would be fruitless.

^ Thanks Plankton, nice clip - that's just the kind of blues I like, and quite a change of style for SRV. Also thanks for your summation of his material, which is precisely the kind of info I was after: my wait for that missing SRV album is officially closed.

^ If you want to reduce it so uncharitably, then Yes. I like a blues song to be long enough that at some point I can turn off my mind, relax and float downstream. Here's Pete's Blues, which fairly demonstrates what I like:

Lisna just doesn't like his Blues songs to pull out before the climax. You'd think elph would be able to relate to that.
