Rare SRV Recordings Released

Marc Benno and The Nightcrawlers (featuring Stevie Ray Vaughan)

Release Date: Jun 16, 2009

The original recordings of the infamous Texas blues-rock band featuring Stevie Ray Vaughan on lead guitar, Doyle Bramhall on drums, Tommy McClure on bass guitar and Billy Etheridge on keyboards, performing classics written by Marc Benno and the band. Concentrating on Benno’s songwriting talents, the band took on a sound of their own and became underground legends in the Austin music scene of the 70’s. The album, which also features Stevie’s first instrumental, was recorded at Sunset Sound in Hollywood right before the Nightcrawlers went off on tour with J. Geils and Humble Pie. They returned from tour to find their label wasn’t looking for another blues based project, and the album has sat unreleased until now!
