"At the time this pair met in a Canadian TV studio, Vaughan was blazing a trail into the blues world with his debut album, Texas Flood. King was long since a legend, and though he apparently didn't recognize the name "Vaughan," he immediately recognized the young guitarist who'd sat in with him whenever he played in Austin. The video dimension turns this session into a master class for both Vaughan and the viewer. Vaughan is seen soaking up lessons from King's guitar playing, stage manner and the verbal notes he provides between songs. What was previously a musical conversation now becomes a visual one as well. King is often seen marveling -- almost in surprise -- at Vaughan's playing, and Vaughan's expressions capture the joy he feels in so clearly making the grade. Without a live audience, the two bluesmen play for each other and for the blues."
