Albert King & Stevie Ray Vaughan perform their own electric rendition the "Match Box Blues" on December 6, 1983 for the Canadian television show "In Session."
"In Session" is a blues album by Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded live for television at CHCH-TV studios in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and released as an album on August 17, 1999. It was released on DVD on September 28, 2010.
It was the first of two collaborations captured for television recorded for a television series called "In Session." The show featured live sessions recording the performances of various artists. The album includes a few short segments of the banter by King and Vaughan between songs. Initially, King was not going to do the show as he did not know who Vaughan was. He did not realize that Vaughan was actually 'little Stevie', the 'skinny kid' that he let sit in when King played in Texas. King talks about this on one of the conversation tracks. When he realized who Vaughan was, he agreed to play. The album's material is mostly King's concert line up, with one Vaughan cut, "Pride and Joy." King is 'driving' the session, but he purposefully features Vaughan on a number of the songs.
