Back in the early to late 80's, I was a student at the Ohio State University. During my time there I was also a staff member at the student run radio station.

The 80's was a great time to be working in college radio as there were so many incredible new bands that were receiving little to no conventional radio air play and college radio was their main source of promotion.

During my time in college radio, I discovered R.E.M, Husker Du, The Replacements, Translator, The Feelies, and many other wonderful alternative rock bands that became personal favorites.

When the then current host of our Blues show graduated, it was offered to me, mainly because I was able to say that I was actually familiar with the "Three Kings", Albert, B.B., and Freddie.

Fortunately, that was enough to impress our Music Director. So I was lucky enough to have 2 weekly radio shifts, one doing alt rock, and one doing blues. In reality I was a bit of a blues novice at first but man...what an opportunity to learn! And I really dove into it.

One of the best discoveries that I made through this blues gig was the genius of Albert Collins.

I had never even heard of Albert until I played his Alligator Records release Frozen Alive. Suffice it to say, that biting, piercing, icy guitar tone of his totally blew me away and I quickly became a rabid fan.

We were on the Alligator Records promo album list and I quickly made friends by phone with their A&R rep for our area. Next thing I knew I was being invited to our local Blues club to meet and interview such Alligator artists as Son Seals, Koko Taylor, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, and Roy Buchanan. For a shy Mid-West kid like myself, it was sheer terror at first but ultimately as I got better at it, a dream come true.

Albert was my very first interview and he could not have been more kind and gracious. I ended up becoming friends with Albert's manager so I was able to see and hang out with Albert several times in the 80's up through the early 90's. All I can say is that he was always warm and friendly and easy to hang out with. A true class act.

And it goes without saying that he was an astounding guitarist and performer.

This is a soundboard from 1986 that features Albert in his prime during his Alligator period. The performance sizzles and the sound is A+...near commercial quality.

If you are into Albert trust me....you just gotta check this one out.

Rest in Peace Mr Collins, and thank you so much for everything...

Enjoy!
