In Session is the only known recording of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan performing together. The 2009 remaster presented by Stax Records stands as a fitting tribute to the genius of two of the greatest musicians ever to have played the blues on electric guitar.
- from the liner notes by Lee Hildebrand
Anyone who's witnessed a much anticipated jam session only to be disappointed--with each participant deferring to the other, the end result being that neither ever got out of first gear--will welcome this pairing of two giants of blues guitar. Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan obviously shared a mutual admiration, but it simply wasn't in either one's makeup to: a) be intimidated or b) take a backseat to anyone. Not without kicking up a little dust.
