kd lang's version of this is really good too.
@DLJeffs - that is a good version and a lot of artist has done their own rendition of it creating their own mood and feel for the song. I like his version best because how he utilized an “atmospheric effect” between the guitar sound/tone/effects/engineering with his wide range vocals to the meaningful lyrical content to make that song to be more “emotionally effective”. That is the difference between other renditions- I know what I just stated is very subjective. If you are an audiophile and a musician that enjoys the process in how a “song and sound” was created, it opens your ear to a more extended experience and a more enjoyable one if you can appreciate all the subtle nuances as well as substance that make that song much more memorable.

I have these two links if you want to dive into what I am referring too and it discusses how that sound envelope was developed using multiple reverbs, in stereo and how to get that overall sound/tone with effects with pedals and with an aide of the computer music software. The original engineer who mixed that album shows how it was done and the other is a popular guitarist shows how “close” you can get to that sound- the “essence” of it. He got fairly close, but there are so many variables in that chain- for one the guitar pickups he has does not have the same output as Jeff’s original tele pickups and we don’t know what amplifier(s) and speaker(s) he used. You have to listen to this content with a really good head set as oppose to blaring them out of your speakers if you want to catch the subtle nuances:

I think I understand what you're getting at. The comment "emotionally effective" is accurate to me. Take Chris Isaac's "Wicked Game". It wouldn't be nearly as effective without some sound engineering. kd lang's voice is just so incredible. Or just take the old surfer tunes from the 60's. Play "Pipeline" on my acoustic and it just doesn't have the same impact without the sharp reverb of the electric.

RIP to one of my guitar heroes, the great iconic, blues legend, the late Stevie Ray Vaughan who passed away 31 years ago today. What a monster of a blues guitar player he was from Texas that had his own unique flair and style!
