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, ...

These were the last recordings made by Texan guitarist Albert Collins before succumbing to cancer on 24th November 1993. In the years just prior to his passing, he'd undergone something of a renewal, signing to the (at that time) ascendant Pointblank Virgin subsidiary and touring the UK with increasing regularity, then at the peak of his live powers. Albert's final dates are documented here, melting out in style. This last edition of his Icebreakers barnstormed across Europe, revisiting the Collins signature tunes of "Iceman" and "Frosty", as well as looking up old friends like T-Bone Walker's "T-Bone Shuffle", Lowell Fulson's "Talkin' Woman" and Little Johnny Taylor's "If You Love Me (Like You Say)". The trumpet/saxophone horn duo act like they're multiplied three times, with several vein-bursting tenor solos contributed by Jon Smith. Collins himself virtually patented his direct, one-note cries, and is equally at home on a stretched-out coaster like "Lights Are On But Nobody's Home", heightened emotion sparking from his tiny guitar flares over its sparse, 10-minute course. --Martin Longley

These performances were recorded shortly before Collins' death in late 1993, but rather than sounding tired, they offer proof that the "Master of the Telecaster" remained a commanding stage presence until the end.
Albert Collins' highly original, percussive guitar playing is still sharp, and his vocals are strong and soulful. He is backed by an excellent band which includes two sax players and a trumpet, and they offer solid backing and the occational soul-revue riff without overwhelming the 60-year old guitarist.
Collins and his band swing on the superb "If You Love Me Like You Say" and the funky "Iceman", and they groove on the eight-minute blues workout "Put The Shoe On The Other Foot".
Other highlights include the rocking "Travelin' South" and the sweaty soul of "Talkin' Woman". And listen to Collins' solo on "Iceman", and his take on T-Bone Walker's classic "T-Bone Shuffle".
This is a strong collection of some of Collins' best and most accessible latter-day material. It is a great place to start if you're new to the music of Albert Collins, and a must-have if you're a fan.
Definitely recommended.

I avoided this album for years and now I regret it. We saw Collins in Birmingham (UK) in 1991 and the support, CJ Chenier, simply blew him away (catch him if you can). So, many years on I finally bought this out of curiosity - and can't stop playing it. The slow numbers burn. And I mean burn. Just try to sit still to the faster stuff!
When he was good he was out of this world, and we all have off nights I suppose, shame it was the one time I saw him!

There are more than enough technically brilliant guitarists with little to say, shredders who equate quality with the number of notes they can play in a minute. Albert Collins had something to say and could say it with a sparcity and tone to send shivers down your spine. The live albums are all worth hearing but despite the constant reminder that this was almost the end this is still my favourite. Some of the best of his material played with power and warmth. Seriously recommended to anyone with a taste for blues or great guitar, should be essential listening for any player.

On this live-album, Albert Collins proves that he was still very much on top of his game, right up to his final days. Distilled from performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival, Switzerland and two gigs in Rockford,IL and Peoria, IL, this is a cooking set of hard-hitting blues that could raise the roof ! Bringing some of his most familiar tunes, from "Frosty" to "Iceman" and "Put the shoe on the other foot" to "T-bone shuffle", he totally sweeps the audience off its feet. Crystal clear recording of the man who shall forever remain the Master of the Telecaster. Recommended listening !

I have to say it, I unreservedly love Albert Collins. However, that doesn't mean I have to love everything put out under his name. His studio based 'Iceman' album was rather too slick for instance and for whatever reason, this set, though powerful lacks that 'something' that makes for a great rather then competent recording. Collins completists will think this notion heresy perhaps. But I only say this so that buyers who are looking to get in to the great man will start at an appropriate place - suggestions that come to mind are 'Frost Bite' and 'Don't Lose Your Cool'.

It's not that Albert doesn't put on a good show- I think as a wizened professional, keeping the customers satisfied was his prime concern, It is simply down to two basic reasons: the live sound is rather harsh on the ears and this distracts from the overall listening experience and secondly and very sadly, Albert was very near to death at the time of recording, so he can't be blamed if this outing lacks some of the sprightly charm and fun of previous live efforts.

If you have all the other Collin's stuff, buy this CD by all means, if you are just starting to explore his catalogue, best advice would be to start elsewhere.
