Albert began his career singing and playing guitar for a number of bands. In 1973, at a time when many Brazilian artists were using anglicised names in attempts to break into the U.S. market, he released his first album, which featured "Feelings", the self-penned song that would eventually bring him worldwide success. The international release of "Feelings" sold over one million copies in the United States alone, and reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1975, and #2 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart. It was awarded a gold disc by the R.I.A.A. on 13 November 1975(source: wikipedia)
Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. 1943 was a banner year for the musical theater. For it was then that Rodgers and Hammerstein joined forces for the first time and wrote the memorable "Oklahoma." What happened after "Oklahoma" is history - and what a history it is! "Carousel", "South Pacific", "The King and I" were among the hits that followed, and now with "Flower Drum Song" add another triumph to the string of successes this team has contributed to the American musical scene.
Deluxe Edition is a solid, albeit imperfect, 13-track collection of highlights from Albert Collins latter-day recordings for Alligator. There are only a handful of genuine classics, but there are a lot of great performances that spotlight Collins stinging guitar work and impassioned vocals. Nevertheless, it's only adequate as an introduction, since Ice Pickin' remains the place to become acquainted with Collins blistering blues.
Compiling a number of performances recorded shortly before Albert Collins' death, Live '92/'93 offers definitive proof that the guitarist remained vital until his last days.
