Stevie Ray Vaughan - The Soul To Souls Sessions 1985


There is about the debate in the location of the so called "Soul To Soul" sessions.

Stevie Ray Vaughan was in New York City at the Power Station in January 1984
recording sessions for the "Couldn't Stand The Weather".  They worked with John
Hammond and Richard Mullen in the Power Station Studio for 19 days in January
of that year. 


Do to this 1984 Power Station sessions, many have confused Stevie's session called
the "Soul To Soul" sessions in March 1985 at Dallas Sound Lab in Las
Colinas, TX. with his stay in New York City in January 1984. Many bootlegs have
released tracks from these sessions mislabeling it as Power Station Sessions in
March 1985.  Those are incorrect and mislabled.  Many of Stevie's friends have
made comments on being in Dallas for these sessions. 


To be Clear, the  "Soul To Soul" sessions which 800 minutes of have "leaked" out
to collectors are from the Dallas Sound Lab in Las Colinas, TX from March 1-14.
Also to keep in mind, Stevie played documented concerts in Texas burng the time
people claim he was at the Power Station in NYC.

I have scanned a few pages from Craig Hopkins book "Day By Day, Night After
Night" that document the days in Jan. 1984 at the Power Station and March 1985
at the Dallas Sound Lab.
