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, ...

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 stars. Perhaps the best live Albert Collins I've heard 7 April 2009
By Docendo Discimus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Only seven tracks here, but "Live at Montreux" still clocks in at almost an hour, thanks to lenghty - but generally not overlong - renditions of "Put the Shoe on the Other Foot", "Too Many Dirty Dishes", and Collins' own "Lights Are On (But Nobody's Home)".

"Iceman" Albert Collins would sadly die from liver cancer the year after this album was recorded, but he is still in top form here. His crisp, stinging lead guitar lines are as good as anything I've ever heard him do; both his playing and his singing are totally focused, as is evident on the tight, punchy "Iceman" and the swaggering "Honey Hush" that open the set. Check out that fiery solo on the latter number!

Albert Collins is backed by a second guitarist, bass, drums, keyboards, and supremely funky bassist Johnny B. Gayden, as well as a tenor sax and a trumpet. Saxist Jon Smith gets off a couple of excellent, jazzy solo (the one on "Lights Are On" is particularly terrific), and the entire band lay down a beautiful canvas of sound for Collins to paint on.
The set list is a highly effective mix of tight, rocking numbers like the irresistable "If You Love Me Like You Say", and slow blues like "Too Many Dirty Dishes". And Albert Collins' playing is as fresh and inspired as anything I've ever heard from him; his lenghty solos on songs like "Honey Hush" and "Dirty Dishes" offer ample proof as to why Collins was so highly rated amongst blues guitar lovers.

There is plenty of live Albert Collins out there, but this is as good as any of it. The album closer, the instrumental "Frosty", is a bit unfocused, perhaps, but everything else is from the top shelf. Collins' music always had more than a touch of funk and soul to it, and that funk element won't be to the liking of all blues fans, but if you're into the Master of the Telecaster, don't hesitate to pick this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Albert Collins Fan 8 Dec 2008
By Jami Visger - Published on Amazon.com
I am a big Albert Collins fan and his live stuff is awsome. I think I listened to this album three times in the first week. It's just sad that I didn't discover his music until have he left this earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars It'll Knock Your Socks Off!! 11 Jan 2012
By So. Calif book reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When deciding which CD's to buy where I'll get the most of an artist's abilities when not knowing their work all that well, I count on the Amazon reviews. I loved this album. It's a real winner and THANKS to the reviewers here who helped me make this excellent choice. A very enjoyable CD. Albert Collins certainly is an excellent musician and great performer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jammin Terriffic Jazz, Real Jazz to!!!!! Not Rock 20 Jan 2009
By Gary J. Chenett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Albert starts out with great guitar and Jazz vocals and never quits,
This is the Jazz I used to hear in New Orleans played live on Bourbon Street 25 years ago.
You can't find it in many clubs any more, ..
.I mean real Jazz like Albert jams out, not the type tagged jazz but never comes close......
His guitar playing and band with organ and more will make you want to wish you were sitting next to the stage as they play and blow you away with great tunes.....
This is really killer!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you like Jazz, this is a piece you need to put in your collection, you will love it.
