In 1983, when legendary blues guitarist Albert King, then age 60, was joined by his disciple Stevie Ray Vaughan, then age 29, on a Canadian sound stage for the live music TV series In Session, magic took place. Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan In Session is not simply a television program: it's a summit of two master musicians. The only known recording of King and Vaughan performing together, this is the concert that blues fans in general, and Stevie Ray Vaughan fans in particular, have been waiting for.

The PBS special Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan — In Session contains the following songs: "Born Under a Bad Sign," "Call It Stormy Monday," "Texas Flood," "Pride and Joy," "Match Box Blues," and Don't Lie to Me."
