Texas Flood Blues

May 30, 2015

Texas is prone to gully-washers and toad-stranglers, thunderstorms that turn washes and arroyos into rivers, and rivers into inland seas. Every couple of decades there’s a big one.

Larry Davis co-wrote and recorded the song “Texas Flood” in 1958, with Fenton Robinson on guitar. Texans Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan jammed on the tune in the CHCH-TV studio in Hamilton, Ontario on December 6, 1983 for the television series In Session.

Mr. Vaughn’s 1983 studio recording of this Blues is the most well-known, but Fenton Robinson’s 1974 version has a lot to offer.
