American Caravan
Grade: Pro-shot, 1st gen
Comment: Rare acoustic performance by SRV. Disc contains some unedited footage and three songs not broadcast on TV. This video, two months before Stevie's collapse, clearly shows the effects of his substance abuse - missed licks, cracking voice, vacant expression. What a contrast to the 1989 Austin City Limits video. There are some highlights here, particularly Oreo Cookie Blues, but it is highly unlikely the Estate would ever approve the release of this show because of Stevie's condition. Notes below by Steve Toney.

Tracks 6, 7, 9 and 10 appear to be the same as tracks 1, 2, 3 and 5, but with a different soundtrack or a different mix. Track 11 appears to be an alternate camera shot from the same taping of track 6 and with alternate non-SBD audio source.

The repeated tracks are alternate camera angles of what appears to me to be the same take of each respective song that appears earlier on either of the discs. Track 7 cuts out and track 8 cuts in. Tracks 1 through 7 have an alternate non-SBD audio source. From Track 8 on, there is a "For Preview Only" subtitle posted across the bottom of the screen.
