SRV is Austin’s own guitar virtuoso. This album of previously unreleased songs, published a year after his death, showcases his guitar wizardry, his influences, and his ability to take blues and rock standards and make them all his own. Here’s what our buddies at Waterloo have to say about it:

“Grammy Award winning album The Sky is Crying contains all the great Texas Electric Blues tracks Stevie played with Double Trouble from his early days at Antone’s at 29th & Guadalupe until his untimely death after playing his last show at Alpine Valley, WI. An epochal Austin classic album, these are the songs that lifted the statue into the skyline.”

— Paul Benson, Waterloo Records

Waterloo Records is an Austin institution. The musical wizards there have been slanging albums and advice since 1982. So when we wanted to highlight some of the music that makes us tap our booted and flip-flopped toes, we of course asked them to help. All the albums highlighted here are curated and sold by Waterloo through the Alvies store.
