CC Deville was the guitarist for legendary drag queen/hair metal band Poison. I forget who Phill Keaggy is. I don't think pastor was trying to say that Clapton was by default better than SRV because he hadn't heard SRV, but rather that until he'd heard enough SRV to formulate a legitimate opinion Clapton would still reign supreme and remain GOD.

I like Couldn't Stand the Weather and The Sky is Crying. I think those are his best. I also wanted to recommend Buddy Guy's Sweet Tea as a blues album you would really like. Its "grunge blues" you really must hear it.

check out "the sky is crying" really good SRV album, but "the essential Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble" has so many good tracks on it you cant go wrong with that one.

For me, Clapton is way to formulaic. I just never saw what the big deal was. I am not here to dump on the man, because he's obviously talented.

I just feel Stevie Ray Vaughan was a natural blues guitartist. He had 'it'. The blues gene. I just don't get that vibe from Clapton.

SRV flowed freely, with an ease that gave you the feeling he was actually channeling the music. He wasn't playing the guitar. He was part of the guitar, swallowed up and swirling inside the sound.

I have been fortunate enough to see both in concert. Clapton seemed like he was at work, doing his job. Stevie Ray Vaughan was playing the blues.

Just my opinion.

Forgive me for poking my nose in, but I own over a dozen SRV cds. I have to say, all his cds bring a different ambience. It would be impossible to pick just one as my favorite.

That being said, if you want the true essence of what SRV is all about, listen to him live. His "Live at Carnegie Hall" is simply masterful. The sound leaves a bit to be desired, simply because Carnegie Hall was built for acoustic music, not electric.

For a more intimate setting, pick up Albert King w/ Stevie Ray Vaughan "In Session". It's just the two of them and a few studio musicians, and a couple of mikes. The raw sound of pure blues is almost too much for the human mind to comprehend. LOL.

In addition to those two live ones, I also own "Live Alive, and a bootleg "Rockin' on the River", recorded in a riverboat casino.



On a side note, everyone has that one musician that simply reaches in further than any other. The one that speaks directly to you. Stevie Ray was that one for me. It will be 15 years next month since SRV was killed, and I still get a lump every once in a while thinking about the loss he was to the blues community. Sappy, I know, but hey, the guy spoke to me with his guitar.
