Cold Snap

TobaccoRoad

Albert Collins ROCKS the blues, and there are times when you WANT and NEED that! I like to balance Albert King's TRUE blues with Collins' just-as-true, but rockin'-on-through blues. Check out his Frozen Alive and LIve at Montreux 1992, and his Showdown (also with Johnny Copeland, AND with Robert Cray). Bruthas and SIstahs of all stripes and colors, you have to have Albert Collins in your collection if you love the blues!

But all three absorbed their primary influences early on, and took the sound to three strikingly different places. Collins was the first to emerge nationally. In the late '50s and early '60s, he cut a string of… more »

Where Did the Blues Begin?

By John Morthland, Contributor

The biggest debate in blues circles these days is, "where did the blues begin?" Ever since the blues revival of the 50s and 60s, the answer has been "the Mississippi Delta." But in recent years, more than a few blues buffs have argued, that while the Delta is where the harshest form of blues indeed gelled, there is very little evidence to suggest that blues started there. Further, Delta blues in its heyday was almost… more »
