A lot of super-vintage Stevie Ray Vaughan recordings—including a few videos—have been turning up on YouTube in recent weeks.

Below, you can check out the latest (posted November 17). It’s a recording of Paul Ray & The Cobras at the Soap Creek Saloon in Austin, Texas, May 5, 1975. It features Vaughan on guitar.

Although this recording has been available as a bootleg (the cover of which is shown in the YouTube player), we appreciate the fact that it’s made its way to the interwebs. At the 5:00 mark in the video, you’ll see the complete set list.

What do you think of Vaughan’s playing at age 19? Enjoy!

    I first heard Stevie on David Bowie’s 1981 Modern Love Album. I didn’t know who he was but I sure recognized that style of guitar playing as “Brilliant”. He and Jimi are my All Time Favorites. I miss them and wished they were still here. Long live the music of Stevie Ray Vaughn.
