Pride and Joy



"Pride and Joy" is a song by Texas singer/guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and his backup band Double Trouble. It is an original composition by Vaughan and appeared on his 1983 Epic Records debut album, Texas Flood. "Pride and Joy" was also released as Vaughan's first single and has become one of his best-known songs.

Texas Flood

released on June 13, 1983, by Epic Records. The album was named after a cover-featured on the album, "Texas Flood", which was first recorded by blues singer Larry Davis in 1958. Produced by the band and recording engineer Richard Mullen, Texas Flood was recorded in the space of three days at Jackson Browne's personal recording studio in Los Angeles. Vaughan wrote six of the album's ten tracks.

Voodoo Child(Slight Return)

"Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" is a song recorded by the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1968 that appears as the final track on the Electric Ladyland album released that year. It contains an improvised guitar and a vocal from Jimi Hendrix, backed by Noel Redding on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums. The song is one of Hendrix's best known; it was a feature of his concert performances throughout his career, and several live renditions were recorded and released on later albums.

Lenny

"Lenny" is the tenth and final track on the first Stevie Ray Vaughan album Texas Flood. The song is in 4/4 time and notated in the key of E flat major (but instruments are tuned down a half-step, therefore, the chordal structure is in E). It is played very slowly and freely, with Vaughan alternating between jazz-inflected chords and solo runs. The main chord featured in the song is a movable Major 6th chord in which Stevie Ray Vaughan applies moderate vibrato by use of tremolo bar. The solos incorporate both the E major scale, E minor Pentatonic scale, and E Minor Blues scale. The style is influenced by Jimi Hendrix ballads like "The Wind Cries Mary." The song itself was written and named for his wife at the time, Lenora. Vaughan also named one of his guitars "Lenny," which he used to play this song and also "Riviera Paradise." The song was often played at live shows.



Little Wing

"Little Wing" is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and recorded by the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1967. It is a slower tempo, rhythm and blues-inspired ballad featuring Hendrix's vocal and guitar with recording studio effects accompanied by bass, drums, and glockenspiel. Lyrically, it is one of several of his songs that reference an idealized feminine or guardian angel-like figure. At about two and a half minutes in length, it is one of his most concise and melodically-focused pieces.
