More popular than any blues album in nearly twenty years, Texas Flood was a surprise success for Vaughan, who had labored in obscurity for years. On the North American Billboard Music Charts, Texas Flood peaked at #64 and #38 on the Billboard 200 and Pop Albums charts, respectively. The single "Pride and Joy" peaked at #20 on the Mainstream Rock chart. The album was Grammy nominated in 1983 for "Best Blues Recording" along with "Rude Mood", which was nominated for "Best Blues Instrumental Performance".
8-track tape versions of the album are very rare and thus considered quite valuable due to the fact that the format was being phased out during the time period in which the album was released. Therefore, relatively few 8-track tape versions of "Texas Flood" were manufactured. The album was released in its entirety as downloadable content for the music video game series Rock Band on March 3rd, 2009.
