+Why Stevie?
The authority on everything Stevie is Craig Hopkins who has spent 18 years researching Stevie's daily (and nightly) activities.
The 'Validity' column is an indication (5=gig listed, plus set list; 4=gig listed; etc) of how closely the data supplied with the clip matches that in his phenomenal books
Day By Day, Night After Night, and The Updated 2-Volume Set [MUST-HAVE for Stevie lovers!]

+Useful Table Information

Much appreciation to SRV Bootlegs for his massive uploading efforts!
In the end, all I am doing providing a place for the chronological ordering with Hopkins' references of the uploader's efforts.
If, as can happen in this world, a link becomes invalid, it will be marked with a strike-through.
I will be keeping any entries that become invalid for the historic record.
Kudos also to SRV Blues, SRV BRY, SRVMusicVideo and srvguitarlegend

jenet6498:
danimation777 Sadly dont have it...the band was bone tired having driven straight from Texas to California...I asked Stevie to pick an LP track to follow the interview he picked Howling Wolf...I Walked From Dallas. After Santa Cruz, they performed in Palo Alto, where they met Robert Cray Band with Curtis Salgado. There is a tape on youtube of Cray and Salgado jamming with Stevie. Both bands appeared at 1979 San Francisco Blues Festival that month.

My wife and I attended this show in groton that night by pure happenstance. I went home and got my camera and took pics.

I lived in Austin from 1977 to 1985, saw a few SRV shows at Steamboat on 6th Street, Antones on Guadalupe and one of the best was a Halloween party at the Ark, a housing coop near UT. Those were some of the best days of my life. Thanks for sharing this gem.

This video was shot by me with SRV's permission and is the second earliest known video of SRV which has been released for public viewing. This video is directly from my original master videotape. SRV was 25 years-old in this video.

George Deahl:
I was at that show, SRV use to play in Lubbock with Triple Threat Revue. Fat Dawgs killer!!!!

bob nelson:
Imagine in 1978, you were an 18 yr old kid who'd been playing at guitar for a few years, Johnny Winter was your current favorite, and you stumbled into a small bar w/4 or so other people in it and this is what was going on for the next 3 and a half hours! I walked in a guy who played a little guitar and walked out a guitar player - it was that impactful! For the next 4 or 5 yrs, I played little parties playing Stevie versions of Freddy King tunes and people thought I was a genius haha - I'd tell em that they had to hear SRV.

From commenter bluesin:
Frosty is the song at 23:00. Date was correctly logged as July 4, 1981. It was a show I produced.His distortion on the 2nd track was without pedals, wrenching is neck while he braced the axe on the stage with his foot. Amazing strength & lightning fast fingers.No others have been able to match before or after.

Houston, TX Fitzgerald's 1981-10-14 Audience, B+ N/A From commenter Lawrence Meyering:
1:05:52 - Tin Pan Alley - now he's down 1/2 step (Eb). the only way this is possible is if he and Tommy switched guitars. very possible 'cause SRV was still experimenting. had to be a tape edit here if this is the case.

A bit more. SRV is tuned down a Full Step here. this is why we hear him tuning more than usual. my cassette (Fitzgerald's 1980) was dropped a full step as well. this is why this recording has more balls than others. SRV was still experimenting w/dropping 1/2 step or full step. he eventually settled on 1/2 step (Eb). the Full step drop is a remarkable thing to hear. Also...he would be fighting the Strat more than in Eb. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS RECORDING! MAKING MY DAY!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!

Fitgeralds was being managed by a really cool lady named Patty, and the place was always rocking on Fri, Sat, and during the week too. This was my main hang out in the Heights! It's located right off white oak if you have been there you know where it's at. Born and raised in Houston, Texas!!!!!!

I lived only a few blocks from Fitz's on the same road which was White Oak in Houston, Tx. Sara Fitzgerald loved Stevie, and this was Stevie's favorite club to play at cause Sara didn't care how loud Stevie played. I attended almost every one of Stevie's shows there. About once a month, even the Texas Flood release party on June 20th 1983. I do know what Stevie used on stage. The house had 2 Mesa single 15" StudioMasters. They had a equilizer on the front. Stevie had a single Fender pre 67 Blackface Super Reverb with the bias so hot a set of 6L6GC Blackplate tubes would barely make it through the night. He would adjust the Mesa EQ to have max midrange. On the floor was no Fuzzface. A UniVibe, TS9 with an Op Amp chip that was used in the older Ibanez TS 808. Got some great pics from them days.

Houston, TX University of Houston 1982-04-30 B+ B The venue is questionable:

Steve Allen:
This is not at Hofheinz Pavilion as the description says it is. As you can see this was outdoors and Hofheinz Pavilion is basketball arena. I was at this show and at the show the night before at Fitzgerald's. I've forgotten more than I remember but I'm pretty sure this is Herman Park and not UofH.

Katherine Loggins Howard:
I think that's in Lynn Eusan Park on UH Campus at either the Spring Fling or the Fall Festival?? I was a member of the UH Program Council and we had SRV play in the park. What a Show! LD Systems provided support lights/sound and our group produced the show. Looks like the park on campus on the new stage(at the time) in years prior we used scaffolds

nuripersonal:
I think you are absolutely correct as I have a video of SRV at Lynn Eusan Park and just checking this video out, it does look like it is the park. Watching this video takes me back to when I was 18 or 19 and in fact I started to remember some details of the parties at the park just from this video. I went to UH then and I lived at Cougar Place for a short while and used to attend those park parties. I was active in student activities and would spend lots of time at the Student Union building with the big cafeteria.

Actually they start the song as "Tin Pan Alley" and then switch to "Dirty Pool" after a couple of minutes or so. They did the same trick also at the Tokyo show in jan 1985, but then it was more obvious, since Stevie had sung the verses of Tin Pan prior to changing. But also in this particular performance you can hear the spesific guitar parts and arrangement of Tin Pan Alley at the start. And also the change of key is obvious.

Hollywood, CA The Palace 1983-08-22 Soundboard, A+ N/A From commenter Daniel Simon:
This opening song is Testify. And the concert is from the Hollywood Palace, Aug 22, 1983. This was a originally an FM broadcast (probably 94.7 KMET Los Angeles). The location recording is from a multi-channel professional soundboard recorded by the Westwood One mobile recording truck. THAT'S WHY IT SOUNDS SO GOOD! The sound engineer was Biff Daws. This recording may be a direct rip from a cassette recorded from the radio broadcast, but I think I sounds too good (not too much tape hiss nor FM intermodulation noise). So it may be a transfer from the radio promo vinyl record, but I do not hear ticks & pops typically associated vinyl LPs (even clean and mint records have some groove noise). My final opinion, this may have been copied directly from the Westwood One master 1/4 inch stereo tape (analog reels). Back in those days, analog reel to reel tape was still the industry standard for professional recording.

Reading, England Reading FestivaL, Little John's Farm 1983-08-27 A N/A John Hill:
The first and only time I got to see Stevie. We were about 10 metres from the stage, and hadn't a clue who he was, but were interested in seeing him. We were there for the standard acts - Thin Lizzy, Ten Years After, Sabbath (sort of!) Anyway, the festival programme said Stevie'd recorded with Bowie, but that was about it. We didn't know what to expect. Needless to say, we were all completely blown away. I was 16 years old, and just learning to play guitar. Everything I've ever played since has been shaped by this one incredible afternoon. I'm 46 now. Anyone else there too? Who else can remember why the crowd cheers at 2:23? And why he drops a few notes at 3:32 and the crowd cheers again? Or even how his set ended? I shouldn't think he was ever treated that roughly anywhere else in the world. I LOVE the energy of this performance. He was definitely trying to prove something, and jeez, he proves it. Thanks for putting this up.

Lightning RT:
John, the crowd cheers as Stevie booted plastic beer bottles off the stage while he was playing - same with the dropped notes -I think he probably had to move sharpishly to avoid a missile. He asks the audience to stop it soon after saying something like:"I know its fun, but put a stop to it". Do you remember that craze of throwing stuff at bands and the crowd around the early 80's - I got hit by a jacket spud at Reading!

stevexxl777:
I was there John!! I was right at the very front of the stage, What a performance it was ........ pls I was 16 at the time too!

Lightning RT:
I was there. I'd seen an article in Guitar Player about SRV but had gone to see Ten Years after, Sabbath and Lizzy. The bonuses of the festival for me were SRV [he blew everyone away that day], and many of the other non-headlining bands. I feel privileged to have witnessed this tour de force on one of the very rare occasions he came to the UK - plus the simplicity of this era of SRV is still my fave I reckon.

**  Springfest @ New Paltz New Paltz, NY Spring Weekend, '84, The Tripping Fields, SUNY New Paltz 1984-04-28 -- -- Hopkins has this gig as the first of two for the day, the second being at The Chance in Poughkeepsie, NY.

The bootleg itself, however is (incorrectly) adamant that the taper says it was on 5/5. Hopkins has Stevie in Carlisle, PA on that date.

I was at this concert and actually believe that is me whistling at the beginning of this song.... Because I used to whistle a lot at concerts and not only that... this was an SRV song I was totally bonkers for. I know I would of had that response once i realized which song he was playing being probably among the biggest Stevie fans back then....BTW, After college i took up guitar and play this song all the time in SRV fashion.

Wow!!! I was at this concert!!!! Graduated SUNY NP May 1985. Thank you so so so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PS It actually was called "Spring Weekend '84" And sorry to correct you twice - but it was actually called "The Tripping Fields" SUNY New Paltz is located about 15 miles from the town of Woodstock, NY. With the drug culture out of the late 60's the area adjacent to the actual college (that the college owned) about 60 acres of mostly a grassy field; was designated as "the tripping fields" by students. By the early 80's that "tripping thing" largely became a historical fact more than anything else. Though I am sure some students might of tried some LSD or pschedlic mushrooms on rare occasions. .....This field was surrounded by many acres of woods as well. Every year (Spring) it became part of a weekend music festival sponsored by the college Student Association. (Which I was a member of during the 1984-85 school year). We managed to get local groups to perform to fill the weekend but as a grand finale they always got a serious performing band or artist to end it on Sunday. (The previous year, 1983, we had Johnny Winter play as the grand finale act- he performed the day after his friend Muddy Waters died) This whole spring weekend festival was more of a newer idea back then, but it was sort of taken from the Woodstock concert model. Well not sure if there was a lot of drugs at this weekend back in 1984 but certainly plenty of pot and alcohol. We usually would get a keg or case of beer in a cooler. There was always enough kegs to walk up to a stranger and ask for a beer. I personally, (and regretabley ) was very drunk most of the concert and could easily be one of the people whistling here. (I did a lot of whistling at concerts back then). Sad to say, that most of the concert was a blur for me. However, I do remember Stevie was wearing his usual black clothes. It was a sunny day and the sun was shining bright for most of his performance. The outdoor stage with its overhead lights and canopy roof put Stevie mostly in a dark shadow, especially early on when the sun was higher in the sky. I would absolutely would go bonkers if I could get even one picture of this performance! But this is the concert that this guitar player will always be grateful for having seen my favorite all time guitarist. Stevie Ray Vaughan. I love being able to brag about it too!

I was at this show. We were on the hill beyond the field where the moat separated the field with a couple of security guards at the bridge. They wouldn't let us in with the coolers. Thats when I stood up and said lets take the bridge. Everyone got up and we did and the flood of people with their coolers crossed over the bridge on to the fiels. It was quite a moment and set stage for a really cool show.

So glad you posted this! I became a superfan after that night! Saw SRV every time he came around until the night before he passed away. Miss him!

From commenter manitou2010:
Thanks for a trip down memory lane. I was at this concert. -- When I went to Summeriest that day, I actually thought it was the night that Tesla was headlining the rock stage and was pissed when I found out some "guy" I never heard of was headlining. The minute that Stevie ripped into Voodoo Chile Slight Return, my musical life was changed forever! -- I will always remember his hat with the concho's on it. Bad ass. -- I was stationed in Guam, with the Navy, when I saw on the news that Stevie's helicopter went down in my "homeland" of Wisconsin. RIP, SRV.

I can't believe that anyone still has a recording of this. I can't even find anyone that was at this concert. This was when he was just hitting the market and really hadn't hit is huge yet. There was so few people here and everyone was waiting for couldn't stand the weather, which they did not play. I can remember the clothes line rope strung out across the front of the stage about 8' back to keep people from getting too close. I remember the huge peacock tattoo on Stevie's chest with the tail feathers closed and hanging down. Such a great show for those few hundred if that, that knew what was there and enjoyed a true genius from only feet away.

there is some versions of this show at red rocks showing the date of 6/17. The SRV Data base states it was 6/19. I had a back stage pass and met SRV that night. My pass is marked 6/17. The data base is wrong.

From commenter blueline68:
I was at this show....Albert King, B.B King, and Bobby Blue Bland opened for Stevie and he really pulled out every stop to make sure he lived up to the honor. As is evidenced by the performance, he exceeded all expectations for me.

I saw jimmy learn to play his first guitar at 12, then Stevie soon followed. I watched Stevie play with Blackbird at the Cellar in downtown Dallas in early 70's. He was already great then. He was also a good natured and kind hearted person. Such a loss to the guitar world. Seems like the good ones go young. At least he left us a lot to remember him by. Still get chills when I hear him play.

He made security leave fans alone when they started taking pictures and even struck some poses all while he playing. His exact words: "Leave those people alone.

D DiBona:
I feel so sad for all those who never had the opportunity to experience SRV/DT live. I did 16 times. 30 plus years later I watch a video such as this and I watch in disbelief. Chills! Incomparable! I have never seen Tommy Shannon so animated! Don't know for sure but I wouldn't be surprised if this is shortly after Stevie met Janna. He is spending a lot of time looking off to the His right side of the stage. I saw the band first in 1984 til the end in 1990. Witnessed every stage of their live experience during those years. Stevie is playing like a man in love! Simply amazing!

+ Piscataway [BOOTLEG] (142:22)
Piscataway, NJ Livingston Campus, Rutgers University 1986-04-15 Audience, B- N/A From the bootleg page: Taper's (bpthree) notes:
This was my first of the two times I saw SRV. This was before he went to rehab, and I kind of felt he was a little tipsy this night. The songs were jammed out forever, and I had three tape flips, which wasn't my norm. The last time I saw him was with the tour with Jeff Beck in 1989, after he had cleaned up his act.

Personally, I thought his playing had improved dramatically. Still, if one can play like this being high, then there is no hope for any of you aspiring guitarists! I had the pleasure of meeting Stevie at a record store signing on July 29, 1989 at "CROW'S NEST DIGITAL" in Naperville, IL. Easily the nicest person I ever met in the music biz. He made you feel like you were some long lost friend he hadn't seen in ten years. His autographs were beautiful penmanship, with a nice sentiment, not the normal rock star scribbles that you can't even figure out who there are, if you didn't already know. He was one of the greats, and is sorely missed.

Denze, Belgium Brielpoort 1986-09-20 Audience recording - a lot of close screaming = B- N/A Chris:
Thanks for uploading this! I stood close by the screamers who I found very annoying, but Stevie's playing was grandiose (and loud)

The Ex-Splendido's:
I was there with my best friend who committed suicide later. I cannot thank you enough for this bootleg recording. For me it's a treasure. Sometimes I try listen to the sound, voices of the audience and I think I can hear my friend and me scream:). I still remember when they came on stage. In the dark with some kind of 'candle lights'. But the best part for me during the concert, was when SRV sat down on the speaker, right in front of us. I could have touched him (The Brielpoort looked like a kind of gym auditorium in school. It was a small venue). Everyone on the front row was really really close, almost on stage. Sitting down he started the intro of Tin Pan Alley and played a 22 minute version. He was as high as a kite. But God... . I must say some idiots in the small audience kept on calling: 'you're not Jimi Hendrix' during is rendition of Voodoo Chile! I saw him again in Peer at the Blues Festival but that performance in Deinze, that evening, ranks within my top 10 of concerts I attented. Again THANKS, BG, The Ex-Splendidos.

I was there that night! It's a story I will still be telling when I'm in the nursing home, even if nobody else can hear me. We were just about to leave after a couple hours of listening to Bernard Allison when a bus rolled up out back. We had heard a few rumors and knew something was up, so we went back to our table. A couple minutes later, there is Stevie Ray Vaughan on stage! Duffy's was on Prospect Street, right across from Vitesse Cycle Shop, which is also no longer there. Duffy's later became the first Spotted Cow ice cream location. Thanks for the video and a trip back in time.

i saw Stevie at The Providence Performing Arts Center. It`s a plush theatre with a domed ceiling. i was stage left 5th row. the stage was eleveted maybe3 feet. He was 20 feet from me tops. Everyone had to remain in their seats and I only saw one person take a photo. she was escorted to and back from the stage to her seat. when he did voodoo Chile he put his hat on his mike stand and you could see the shadow on the side wall as if it were Jimi Hendrix profile. I could see the sweat rin down his face. Mind blown.After the show hw went and jammed with Roomful of Blues.

marla medina:
I love all these videos. thank you so much! he was truly an angel. I got the pleasure of seeing him 5 times. I have had the pleasure of meeting Tommy Shannon 3 times (one time just last month in Austin). he is just as humble as Stevie. they were closer than brothers and you can tell he truly loved Stevie and still chokes up til this day talking about him. he just sat and talked to me like I was a friend. truly amazing. all so talented and out of this world.

Richard Bullis:
I was at this show. It's the only time I've ever seen an opening band do an encore. Said a lot about SRV. Also said a lot about Robert Plant. That doesn't happen very often, if at all.
