-Jimmie Vaughan, co-founder of the Fabulous Thunderbirds and older brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan, recorded one of the most fascinating blues/roots albums of all time in 1994! -Mastered by grandmaster Bob Ludwig, the album is pressed off DMM foils and plays at 45 rpm for perfect sound reproduction. -Great songs like Boom-Bapa-Boom, Flamence Dancer, Tilt A Whirl, Two Wings and the beautiful tribute to his brother who died in an accident in 1990, Six Strings Down, were recorded with Bill Willis - Hammond B3, and George Rains - drums, plus guest Dr. John. -A gatefold cover with all song lyrics and Boom-Bapa-Boom in a longer version (not on original CD) complete this fantastic vinyl project. 'Strange Pleasure', the first solo album by Texas guitarist Jimmie Vaughan, was released on CD in 1994. Produced by the brilliant Nile Rodgers and mastered by one of the greatest in the business, Bob Ludwig, 'Strange Pleasure' became the musical and sound model for many subsequent productions. It established Vaughan as a musician, singer and songwriter in his own right and was the beginning of his Tilt A Whirl Band based on chunky Hammond B3 accompaniment. When 'Strange Pleasure' was released in 1994, Jimmie Vaughan had found his own style. 'Strange Pleasure' is a creative album full of feeling. It allows Jimmie to convey an eclectic range of moods and good humor, and Jimmie always plays a compelling guitar lick or solo as only he can. A blues record at its core, the album stylistically breaks away from the rigid scheme, however, and shows influences of jazz, soul grooves and gospel vocals. Above all, the mature nature of Vaughan's vocals is astonishing. A terrific album, nominated at the time for a Grammy© as best modern blues album. To ensure that the powerful yet warm sound can be felt at its best, Bear Family's vinyl edition comes as a heavy double LP pressed on 180-gram vinyl that plays at 45RPM. This is as perfect as this great album can sound!
