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