Texas Flood is a good sounding LP on this 45 rpm set. SRV's Strat has a LOT more bite than my original pressing and there is far more ease to the sound. Having said that, what struck me as obvious, is what I am finding with so many of these 're-issues'...and that is- the original recording wasn't by any means what we would call an a'phile recording to begin with! Therefore, the fact that there was a LOT of lost information from the start cannot be made up later with these pressings. This was hammered home once again after I had first listened to 'Still Harry after all these years' on Sheffield Lab Direct Disk. This LP was recorded correctly and for maximum realism in the first place....the SRV LP...well not so much.
So, while I think the SRV set is so far superb, it is IMHO by no means a a'phile recording...the Epic recordings just aren't in the same league when it comes to capturing the finest details and no matter what you do with the original tapes, no one can add the missing information...Again, all IMHO.
As to the music, well it's SRV and that's why I am so glad I bought this set.
