  • Initial Thoughts on MFSL One Step Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood

    So I just received the MFSL One Step Texas Flood. I, of course, had to compare it with my copy from the AP 45 speed Stevie Ray box set. Both albums were cleaned and played at same volume setting. I played Love Struck Baby and Pride and Joy a couple of times each. My initial thoughts are that Stevie's voice and the guitars were more immediate sounding on the MFSL. It seemed to me that you can hear Stevie's fingering on the guitar more clearly on the MFSL. Definitely, the vinyl on the MFSL is quieter - on Pride and Joy, when the guitars stop, you clearly hear the recording venue around Stevie's voice, you do not hear that on the AP reissue. Arguably, the AP is a bit warmer and may have better bass

    Sounds like I should think about ordering.

      Thanks for your thoughts. This is what I wanted to know too. My copies are supposed to ship tomorrow so it will be nice to have them, but I've very happy with the AP 45 Box Set... I continue to queue up at the pushers door for my next fix. Resistance is futile.

        I didn't mean to give the impression that the MFSL is much better. I could easily see people preferring the AP version. I'm not 100% decided yet . Need to do more listening. Would love to hear people's thoughts

          I haven't been thrilled with MFSL one step LPs I purchased which is why I stopped buying them. The packaging is nice and if you don't open them you can flip some of them for multiples of what you paid for them which is a rare event in today's world.

            I do agree that the results have been mixed. I think the original Santana album was excellent (probably the best version I've heard) .I did not like most of Bridge. What's Going On and Nightfly were pretty good. The Bill Evans was meh. After listening more, I think this one is a keeper

                  this should be compared to a clean original Columbia, which generally for SRV stuff sound really good.

                    By now, some of you must have listened to your copy of this album. And thoughts?
