180g Audiophile Vinyl Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso From Original Blue Thumb Records Tapes!

Texan Albert Collins was absolutely one of the most prolific and rhythmic pioneers on the American blues scene ever. Recording his first 45’s in the early sixties and rapidly becoming one of the most in demand bluesmen of his time, Collins was truly an American legend on the worldwide blues circuit.

While recording a plethora of singles on cool blues labels like Kangaroo, Tracie and Hall-Way from 1962 to 1965, TCF Records released Albert’s first album The Cool Sounds Of Albert Collins a/k/a Truckin’ With Albert Collins from a bunch of these wonderful single sessions. The album quickly faded into obscurity until a chance meeting with Canned Heat. The band convinced the man to make a move to California and the rest is rock and blues history.

Upon his arrival on the L.A. rock and blues market, he soon became one of the country’s leading blues guitarist with a ton of devotees like his fans Canned Heat, John Mayall, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Robert Cray whom were all diggin' what the bluesman was laying down.

Blue Thumb Records soon re-released his stunning first album Truckin’ With Albert Collins, and thousands of blues fans the world over were soon discovering the classic early sixties album which boasted his hit blues singles like Frosty, Tremble and Frost Bite.

The dozen gems that make up this jumping blues event would go on to become some of his most famous tunes including Frosty which was covered by numerous rock and blues artists over the years, plus even more terrific blues rockers like of Sno-Cone II, Icy Blue and the rockin’ Don’t Lose Your Cool.

Friday Music is no stranger to the best in blues music, and it is with much honor they announce the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Anniversary release of Albert Collins’ debut masterpiece Truckin’ With Albert Collins.

Impeccably mastered by Joe “Bluesman” Reagoso (John Lee Hooker/Canned Heat/Johnny Winter) from the original Blue Thumb Records tapes.

To make your limited edition listening experience all the more entertaining, Friday Music also includes the very rare gatefold album cover graphics for the first time in four decades, including the stunning essay by the legendary Pete Welding which truly enhances the wonderful blues within by the late great and sorely missed Albert Collins.
