ALBERT COLLINS Alive And Cool Plus (Angel Air 2013)

ALBERT COLLINS was a renowned American electric blues guitarist and as a relative of Lightnin' Hopkins he grew up learning about music and guitar playing. Bob Hite (Canned Heats larger than life singer) and UK entrepreneur Peter Shertser organised gigs for him in the late 60's. 

This album was recorded live at Fillmore West, San Francisco, USA in 1969 when on the same bill were Creedence Clearwater Revival and Fleetwood Mac! (Jeremy Spencer from Fleetwood Mac actually recorded this album through the deck) The bonus tracks are his singles from the 1958 to 1962 period.

Albert died in 1993 but is fondly remembered and revered as he influenced many artists from Ronnie Wood to Jimmy Page to Gary Moore all of whom he collaborated with.
