Prior to the release of this CD in 1978, Albert Collins had not recorded since 1975. This three year hiatus was due to some disappointing results with his prior, and sometimes obscure, recordings with Imperial records and Blue Thumb. But that all changed when he signed with Bruce Iglauer and Dick Shurman of Alligator records. From that point on, Albert began his quest to become the consummate showman and premier bluesman. The rest, as they say, is history.

On this CD, Collins is joined by Icebreakers, AC Reed on sax, Casey Jones on Drums, Aron Burton on bass and Allen Batts on keyboard. There is plenty of guitar solo's that are, well, down right chilling and the sax of Reed is sensational. While Albert would later develop a knack for some excellent and sometimes witty lyrics, here is best stuff is material written by others such as the slow burner "Cold, Cold Feeling", or the funky "Honey Hush". Hints of what would come later are contained in Collin's "Master Charge". Sit back, turn it up and enjoy it. You just don't find stuff like this anymore. (deepbluereview)
