Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Texas Flood - 1983

Edward Mitchell of 'the Blues', a British Rock Magazine wrote: 'The cover art is
a big part of what makes the album so special.'

And indeed the front cover art by Brad Holland is iconic. It depicts Stevie playing his guitar within a beautiful play of light and shadow. Even the lettering and the music notes follow the art. (Read 'sketches' about how it all started)

Unfortunately; this nice piece of art is in great contradiction with the plain backcover.

Stevie was an up coming artist; maybe there was no money for it.

Very rare, but the name of Holland is also printed on the front (bottom right)
