From the opening track of this album 'Brick', Albert Collins is pushing his Fender Telecaster to the limit! His 'icy' guitar sound is still so unique and influential. No-one sounds like Albert. I think what is so great about this collection is the fact that there's, obviously blues, but also funky tracks, R'n'B and some great instrumentals including his signature track 'Frosty'. It's also a fine example of why Albert is so revered and 'up there' with Buddy Guy, BB. King and John Lee Hooker as one of the most influential electric blues guitar voices. My favourite track in this collection is 'Give My My Blues' - a real funky track with Albert singing and playing fantastic (as he does on the whole 13 tracks anyway!) This is essential stuff and if you're a real blues guitar fan, this will no doubt enlighten you and grab you're attention as Albert continues to surprise and delight you with his soulful voice and stinging Tele tone. Oh, and one more thing...Check out the track 'The Lights Are On But Nobody's Home'. It will leave you breathless!

This album has the soul of a freight train.

Nothing on this album is understated or shy as Albert Collins takes the album through funk, R and B, and blues.

The album is completely dominated by a staccato blazing, rapid firing, hard biting, string bending, reverberating, aggressive Telecaster driven by Albert Collins. If you do not like blazing blues guitar, this album won't be for you. No slow blues in C on this album.

Great album, great guitarist, Albert Collins, RIP.

It's always difficult to make a greatest hits package- you can't

be sure that everyone will like it. Still, this is a poorly compiled records with too many flaws flaws.

This record includes 13 tracks, but none of them is culled

from the excellent cooperation with Robert Cray and Johnny Copeland - Showdown. Moon is full should be here. Second- one of his

signature tunes Honey Hush isn't present as well. Albert himself liked it that much that he did a second version on Collins mix.

The same goes for If you love me like you say.

If you just want a sampler of Albert's Aligator label years, get

Deluxe edition. It has its flaws too, but it's way better than this one.
