A great companion to the earlier "Truckin' With Albert Collins", this box set was my 18th Birthday present and I feel honored to own one of these now discontinued (I think) box sets. The essence of what made Albert one of the most original guitar stylists of not just Texas Blues but Blues full stop. Lots of interesting grooves and styles here including the original (and better) version of "Conversation with Collins", Stax/Muscle Shoals style soul grooves and swinging Texas style shuffles. Brilliant.
