THE ESSENTIAL JIMMIE VAUGHAN(Legacy) Only two Fabulous Thunderbirds tracks on an Essential Jimmie Vaughan set is guitar-god blasphemy, but since JV's done the solo thing for 15 years now, best to quit dreaming of T-Bird reunions. The Strange Pleasure tracks pack the most wallop, the Hammond B-3 organ thump and doo-wop and gospel backing vocals of Vaughan's Tilt-a-Whirl Band being righteous. Rarity factor: a killer version of the 5 Royales' "I Like It Like That," a Vaughan live staple. -- Scott Jordan
