The Grammy Award Winning album In Step is Stevie Ray Vaughan
and Double Troubles fourth studio, originally released in 1989. Stevie
Ray had recently become sober, after years of drug and alcohol abuse.
This is a recurring theme on the album.
The response to In Step was very positive. Allmusic rated In Step
5 out of 5 stars claiming "it's fully realized, presenting every facet
of Vaughan's musical personality, yet it still soars with a sense of
discovery..." and Lou Reed selected In Step as one of his picks
in 1989. While the album reached number 33 in the Billboard 200, the
single "Crossfire" reached number 1 in the Mainstream Rock Chart.
Unfortunately In Step proved to be Stevie Rays last album with Double Trouble before his untimely death, caused by a helicopter crash, in 1990.
