Stevie Ray Vaughan - Lenny (from Live at the El Mocambo)

Live at the El Mocambo is a live video by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble. The film was recorded at the El Mocambo club in Toronto, Ontario during the band's Texas Flood Tour. It was also released as a DVD on December 21, 1999, with interviews from drummer Chris Layton and bassist Tommy Shannon.

Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble burn it up at the El Mocambo performing a small set list. During the concert Vaughan pulls off some Hendrix style guitar heroics. He does whammy bar tricks, bangs it on he floor, and makes noises with it. He also plays it behind his back.

The high points are Texas Flood, Lenny, and Voodoo Chile. This movie will be a great inspiration to any young (or old) guitar player. Stevie makes it look SO easy. That is his gift! According to Chris Layton: "The band really didn't know that they were going to be filmed that night, they just plugged in and 'floored it'". The incredible thing is that whether it was to 10,000 or just 2 people back in the club days, Stevie gave the same smoking show. He literally plugged into his heart and poured it out on the stage.
