The Top Five Studio Guest Appearances by Stevie Ray Vaughan
Five-plus examples of Stevie Ray Vaughan's best work as a guest guitarist in the '80s.
03. Johnny Copeland, "Don't Stop by the Creek, Son," from Texas Twister (1984)
Texas blues guitarist and singer Johnny Copeland (father of blues singer Shemekia Copeland) invited Vaughan to play on two tracks on his Texas Twister album. On "Don't Stop by the Creek, Son," Copeland, a fine player in his own right, stepped aside to let Vaughan handle all the lead work.
Although Vaughan's Strat was mixed a little too low in the original vinyl mix (It had to compete with Copeland's acoustic guitar), "Creek" is a fun, engaging, upbeat track with a catchy melody and some nifty guitar work from start to finish.
It's worth noting that the original 1984 Black and Blues version of Texas Twister featured two tracks with Vaughan on guitar — "Don't Stop by the Creek, Son" and "When the Rain Stops Fallin'." However, when the album was reissued by Rounder Records in 1986, "When the Rain Stops Fallin'" was gone — and it's still gone. iTunes sells only the 1986 version of the album
