Couldn't Stand The Weather is Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble's follow-up to their excellent debut album Texas Flood. While a more diverse album than their debut, this album is a little inconsistent combining some of their best music ever with a few tracks being just decent.

The best tracks are absolutely killer. "Cold Shot", a mid-tempo shuffle, is an excellent track with Stevie Ray singing more subdued than usual. "Tin Pan Alley" is slow blues at its best with one of Stevie Ray's best vocal performances. His guitar playing is impressive throughout with Double Trouble being the perfect backing band playing with equal amounts fire and subtlety. "Stang's Swang" is the first of Vaughan's instrumental jazz tracks and one of the best songs on the album. The title track is one of their best tracks featuring a great riff and an excellent solo by Stevie Ray.

The rest of the album is decent, but not among their best work. Their version of "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)" is good but doesn't add much to the original. "The Things (That) I Used To Do" is a slow blues they'd perform better on other albums. "Honey Bee" is a decent track but not among their best. The remastered version of the album contains killer versions of "Hideaway" and "Give Me Back My Wig", a dirtier version of "Look At Little Sister" sans the saxophone and keyboards and "Come On (Part III)" which varies little from the version on the Soul To Soul album. A very good album, definitely recommended to all blues fans but they'd record better albums with Texas Flood and In Step.
