When Jimmie Vaughan says ?I have the best job in the world,? he isn?t kidding. For more than four decades, the guitar-slinging Texan legend has been earning his living rockin? the blues, and nothing makes the man happier. But now, Vaughan is even more excited about his gig than usual?for his newest release he?s consulted the vast blues encyclopedia that resides deep inside of his head and come up with a nearly all-covers set best described by its unambiguous title: Blues, Ballads and Favorites.
Self-produced and recorded in Vaughan?s hometown of Austin, the newest offering by the co-founder of the iconic, still-missed Fabulous Thunderbirds spotlights a wild array of tunes originally recorded by the likes of Roy Milton, Jimmy Reed, Roscoe Gordon and Little Richard, with a Willie Nelson favorite tossed in. No particular criteria were used in selecting the tracks to include; Vaughan simply narrowed down a long list of songs he liked and Blues, Ballads and Favorites was the ultimate result.

Track listing: The Pleasure's All Mine / Come Love / I'm Leaving It Up To You / Comin' & Goin' / Wheel Of Fortune / How Can You Be So Mean / Just A Little Bit / Lonely Weekends / I Miss You So / RM Blues / Roll, Roll, Roll / Send Me Some Lovin' / Why, Why, Why / (She's Got The) Blues For Sale / Funny How Time Slips Away.
