Biography

There has never been and may never be again a bluesman quite like Albert Collins. "The Master Of The Telecaster" was born on October 1, 1932, in Leona, Texas. A cousin of the legendary Lightnin' Hopkins, Collins emerged with a blues sound and style all his own, featuring a combination of icy echo, shattering, ringing, sustained high notes, an ultra-percussive right-hand attack, ...

Product Description

Review

Collins's stage pyrotechnics endear him to a 1982 Tokyo audience ravished for more, more, more. As a master of pacing and the use of dynamics the guitarist also tells quietly suspenseful stories, notably "If Trouble Was Money." Either way he relies heavily on stock licks and phrases-not that they're lacking for emotional uprightness, mind you. Drummer Casey Jones is a powerhouse and saxophonist A. C. Reed would have been if miked properly. -- © Frank John Hadley 1993 -- From Grove Press Guide to Blues on CD

It is impossible to describe the raw energy of this CD. Don't even think of sitting down! Your foot will be tapping inside of 30 seconds flat. You will be dancing in the kitchen. The greatest legal pick-me-up since caffein. It's like stickin' your finger right into the Blues socket when your momma isn't lookin'. It feels so fun it must be bad.
Carefully save this CD for that dark, grey day when you just don't have the get-up-and-go to do what you have to do that day. Then insert this CD and crank the volume waaay up. It could save your life.

Albert Collins unleashes the soul of blues guitar on this album! From beginning to end this recording cuts to the listener's core, as Collins' guitar performs musical surgery with a master's skill! All of the songs are great, but the real gem is "Stormy Monday." Collins' version is simply outstanding! In this song Albert Collins truly pierces the very soul of the listener, and lifts it to a higher place! The guitar solo is breathtaking! This album is full of great music, and should be owned by every real fan of blues. Buy it now and experience the depth of a blues legend.

This cd is really an explosive mix,blended with the great presence of this power trio in one of perhaps, the best "Live"performances ever released.Casey Jones on drums;A.C. Reed on sax and the "Iced-hot Man" Albert Collins is really an explosive mix you must try on!!!

This is definitely one of those CD's that no blues collecter should be without. Albert Collins' mastery of his craft shines, shimmers, and shakes in this soul-searing example of what the blues is all about.
