  • 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.
Jimmie Vaughan was born in Dallas in 1951. After his first teenage experiences in garage rock bands, he became interested in blues at an early age. His idols include Albert Collins, Freddie King, Albert King and Johnny 'Guitar' Watson. In 1974, he formed the Fabulous Thunderbirds, the seminal blues combo of the day, which reached No. 10 on the Billboard singles chart in 1986 with Tuff Enuff.
In 1990, Jimmie Vaughan left the band to work more closely with his younger brother Stevie Ray Vaughan. But SRV was killed in an accident in October 1990 ... 

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".
In the '90s, there was probably a small vinyl edition in the Netherlands; apart from that, Bear Family is releasing the eleven songs from the original CD, supplemented by a slightly longer version of Boom-Bapa-Boom for the first time on vinyl.
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!

Limited treasure!
"The Jimmie Vaughan release "Strange Pleasure" appeared on CD around ten years ago.
Bear Family Records writes about the reissue as a double LP, among other things: "[...] 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! We at Bear Family Records are proud to release this exquisite Nile Rodgers production as an audiophile double LP limited to 1,500 copies for the first time worldwide on vinyl. [...] Mastered at the time by grandmaster Bob Ludwig, the album is pressed by 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 was killed in an accident in 1990, Six Strings Down, were recorded with Bill Willis - Hammond B3 and George Rains - drums plus guest Dr John. [...]"

Eleven songs on the CD, twelve compositions on the double LP, which was released as 180 g vinyl (limited to one thousand five hundred copies) and is played at 45 rpm.
At the very end, on the second LP, Side B, there is a longer version of the number "Boom-Bapa-Boom". Longer in this case means around a minute. We are offered a little more guitar sounds and vocals. Either way, this track, with Dr John on the piano, is a great album opener in the shorter version, especially as the first track, which makes you happy from the very beginning of "Strange Pleasure" and eagerly anticipate the other songs.

The album number 1202, which was used for this review, is still a highlight today.
It shows how Jimmie Vaughan's album from back then is timeless. The music still sounds so fresh and although the two LPs keep you on your toes, there's no denying that the twelve songs have lost none of their appeal. In this context, "Flamenco Dancer" deserves a mention. The Latin introduction by René Martinez is first class, the groove is excellent and Bill Willis plays a great Hammond solo. Highlight!

Of course, his vocals and his imaginative, emotional fretboard rides are the cherry on the cake.
Dr John's piano contributions in the opener and the title track "Strange Pleasure (Modern Backporch Duente)" are excellent. The penultimate track on the double LP is particularly impressive. Recorded as a duo, it creates a very special atmosphere. Dr John also ventures into jazzy territory and the protagonist creates the appropriate mood on the acoustic guitar. "Strange Pleasure (Modern Backporch Duente)" is the most personal instrumental on this album.

The album, which is dedicated to his brother Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert Collins, contains another feast for the ears in the form of "Six String Down". Jimmie Vaughan almost solo, his vocals accompanied by the acoustic guitar and a chorus of Oren Waters, Terry Young and Kevin Dorsey that will give you goose bumps. The list of blues veterans is twelve-bar history.
The choral vocals are the special flavour in some of the songs.

Another marvellously groovy number is "Tilt A Whirl" with Joe Sublett on saxophone. This song is crowned by a series of solos from piano man Junior Brantley, Hammond player Bill Willis, woodwind player Joe Sublett and, of course, Jimmie Vaughan. A great song in which the saxophone in particular stands out. Super!

Jimmie Vaughan's "Strange Pleasure" can also shine in the new edition as a double LP."
