Editorial Reviews

Filmed just a year before his untimely death from cancer, this 1992 concert from Montreux finds the great Albert Collins still in fine form. With his trademark Fender Telecaster and distinctive finger picking style well to the fore "The Iceman" delivers a set that runs from his early million selling single "Frosty" right up to songs from his final studio album "Iceman".

As an added bonus there are four lengthy tracks from Albert Collins' 1979 appearance at Montreux.

TRACK LISTING 1) Iceman 2) Honey Hush 3) Lights Are On (But Nobody's Home) 4) If You Love Me Like You Say 5) Too Many Dirty Dishes 6) Put The Shoe On The Other Foot 7) Frosty

Bonus Tracks from 1979 1) Listen Here 2) Snatchin' It Back 3) Cold Cold Feeling 4) Frosty

5.0 out of 5 stars Albert Collins At Both Ends Of His Career. March 22, 2008
Format:DVD
Albert Collins ranks as one of the greatest and most influential Blues guitarists of all time. However, material on him is rather scarce. The previously released concerts, interestingly, are all shot outside the USA. He has two great sets in Baden-Baden Germany which are superb, the 1988 one being the best. And his Japanese concert, with a day and night set, is also fantastic. This concert features Albert at Montreux at both ends of his career. The bonus set is from 1979, just after the release of his most influential LP "Ice Pickin'" and this set from 1992, just before his death in 1993.

The bonus set is THE highlight and a "must" for Albert Collins fans. It only contains four tracks, but WHAT four tracks they are! He starts with "Listen Here" a standard opening he used for over ten years and this version is cool. His sound is muddy and distorted, with controlled feedback. This is not like his later "clean" sound. His first solo in this tune is unlike anything he has ever done with some controlled descending runs. I really loved it!

He also goes out in the audience and plays at the beginning of the set-which is also highly unusual. He sits in the crowd and plays. Next he does a funky tune "Snatching It Back" which again turns into some wild improvisation. He then does "Cold, Cold Feeling" from his "Ice Pickin'" album and it, interestingly, is in a major not the usual minor key--really interesting. In the middle of the tune a young German fan gets up on stage and plays harp--it doesn't even distract Collins!! He just keeps on playing. Albert is cool! Albert King would have stopped the show!!

The final tune is "Frosty" and it's a strong early version and we have the rare honour of seeing Albert jam with "Gatemouth" Brown as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best blues performance i've seen at Montreux February 21, 2008
Format:DVD
This is such a great live performance from the famous Montreux. I highly recommened this DVD or the CD. The DVD, however, has more songs than the CD.

I was lucky to review it before the DVD is released on March 4th.

This is a fantastic concert by the late/great Texas Bluesman, Albert Collins. Albert Collins has his own unique electric guitar playing style. He plays a Fender Telocaster, electric guitar. He was known as the "Master of the Telocaster". This is one "Awesome", electric, blues guitar concerts. This concert contains some great guitar "jam", electric, guitar solo, performances by Albert & Pete Thoennes. They can really "jam" on their electric guitars. Albert was a big influence on the late/great Stevie Ray Vaughan, another great Texas Blues Guitarist. He also influenced the late/great, Jimi Hendrix, and many more blues artists. Albert picks the guitar with his fingers, and he uses a capo, high up on the neck of the electric guitar, which gave him a unique style, and a unique sound. This DVD is electric blues at it's best. This DVD has excellent sound quality that is "rich & deep", because of Albert's unique guitar style, and because of his great backing bands. Also, on the last song of the 1979 concert, "Frosty", Albert is joined by the late/great Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, accompanying him on electric guitar. Also during the show, a fan gets on stage and plays harmonia, but he is ignored by Albert and his band.

This is definitely electric, blues guitar, & band blues at it's very best. Albert even goes out into the audience playing his electric, Fender Telocaster. He was an excellent entertainer. This dvd is simply "Awesome"!!!

The amazon product description gives the song list, so there's no need to repeat that here.

The total running time is about 102 minutes.
