Texas Flood was the thunderclap from a clear blue sky. The album appeared in midsummer 1983, when most saw blues-rock as a quaint remnant of rock's past, introducing the power trio Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble to an unexpecting world. Its raw crunch and confident swagger was undeniable. For rockers, Texas Flood had the right volume and drive; for blues purists,it dignified the tradition. For those seeking an anarchic, punk-like rush, it felt like a roaring, rattling train about to skip its tracks
Couldn't Stand the Weather is the second studio album by American blues rock band Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. It was released on May 15, 1984, by Epic Records as the follow-up to the band's critically and commercially successful 1983 album, Texas Flood. Recording sessions took place in January 1984 at the Power Station in New York City. Stevie Ray Vaughan wrote half the tracks on Couldn't Stand the Weather.
When Vaughan and Double Trouble cut the album over the course of three days in 1982, he had already played his set lists countless times; he knew how to turn this material inside out or goose it up for maximum impact. The album is paced like a club show, kicking off with Vaughan's two best self-penned songs, "Love Struck Baby" and "Pride and Joy," then settling into a pair of covers, the slow-burning title track and an exciting reading of Howlin' Wolf's "Tell Me," before building to the climax of "Dirty Pool" and "I'm Crying.
Stevie Ray Vaughan released his version with Double Trouble in 1983. SRV was first introduced to the song in an Austin, Texas club. According to SRV’s drummer, Chris Layton, Vaughan was attracted to the intriguing guitar parts when Albert King would bring Larry Davis to the Club. Stevie Ray Vaughan followed Davis' original song, however he added several sections of improvised guitar soloing, nearly doubling the length of the song and provided a showcase for his electric guitar style.
