Albert Collins Ice Pickin' Vinyl Record (New, 180 Gram Vinyl, Digital Download Card) 


This is a new limited edition pressing 180 gram vinyl copy of Albert Collins Ice Pickin' that includes a digital download card of the album.

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, and an unheard-of minor key guitar tuning (taught to him by his cousin Willow Young)

Albert Collins' 1978 album Ice Pickin' was a zenith of sorts for the Texas blues guitarist. Known for his strange minor key tuning and piercing guitar work, Ice Pickin' gave Collins his first Grammy nomination and won him Blues Album of the Year at Montreux Jazz Festival.
